In the little village of Anatevka, Tevye, a poor dairyman, tries to instill in his five daughters the traditions of his tight-knit Jewish community in the face of changing social mores and the growing anti-Semitism of Czarist Russia. Its charm, humor, warmth, honesty and universal themes cut across barriers of race, class, nationality and religion, touching audiences throughout the world. A epic piece of theatre, Fiddler... Junior covers the full range of human emotions, presenting young performers with a unique acting challenge - especially the mature young man starring as Tevye, among the most memorable and rewarding roles in musical theatre. Many roles for boys and girls who are in grades 3 through 8. More information can be found at our website http://chelseaareaplayers.org

For more information about MUSKET please visit our website: http://www.umich.edu/~uac/musket PLOT SUMMARY: Hollywood, 1927: the silent-film romantic team of Don Lockwood and Lina Lamont is the Toast of Tinseltown. While Lockwood and Lamont personify smoldering passions on screen, in real life the down-to-earth Lockwood can't stand the egotistical, brainless Lina. He prefers the company of aspiring actress Kathy Selden, whom he met while escaping his screaming fans. Watching these intrigues from the sidelines is Cosmo Brown, Don's best pal and on-set pianist. Cosmo is promoted to musical director of Monumental Pictures by studio head R. F. Simpson when the talking-picture revolution commences. That's all right for Cosmo, but how will talkies affect the upcoming Lockwood-Lamont vehicle "The Dueling Cavalier"? Don, an accomplished song-and-dance man, should have no trouble adapting to the microphone. Lina, however, is another matter: put as charitably as possible, she has a voice that sounds like fingernails on the blackboard. The disastrous preview of the team's first talkie has the audience howling with derisive laughter. On the strength of the plot alone, concocted by the matchless writing team of Betty Comden and Adolph Green, Singin' in the Rain is a delight. But with the addition of MGM's catalog of Arthur Freed-Nacio Herb Brown songs -- You Were Meant for Me, You Are My Lucky Star, The Broadway Melody, and of course the title song -- the film becomes one of the greatest Hollywood musicals ever made.
We will be casting 3 men and 3 women ranging in age from 30-55. Please call to make an appointment for your audition! We just closed sold-out performances of "Almost, Maine" and are anxious to begin production for The Dinner Party!

The Michigan Classical Repertory Theatre announces auditions for J.M. Synges mythical Irish comedy The Playboy Of The Western World directed by Wendy Wright, on Sunday and Monday, May 7th and 8th at the Riverside Arts Center located at 76 N. Huron St in Ypsilanti. Auditions start at 7PM and will consist of readings from the script. There are roles available for 6 men (ages 20-60) and 4 women (ages 20-45). Rehearsals begin June 12th and production dates are July 27-August 6 with a possible extension through August 13th. A credible Irish accent is required. The play, written in 1907 and set in Ireland in the early 20th century, is about a small community intrigued by the arrival of a stranger, Christy Mahon, who claims to have killed his father. Men in the community arent sure if Mahon is a threat, and women find him fascinating. After Mahon disrupts the engagement of Pegeen Mike, the daughter of a pub owner, the community realizes Mahons father is alive. The play builds to a violent ending when the father comes to town with a head wound to search for his son. The original production was marred by riots in the audience that spilled out onto the streets. Although perhaps politically motivated, it was popularly believed that Synges characterization of the peasantry was disrespectful. Character descriptions are as follows: Christy Mahon (age 18-25) When Christy first comes to Michael Jamess pub, he is a fearful lad convinced that he has killed his father. Pegeen calls him a soft lad, but after she hears his story, she determines him to be a hero. Pegeens confidence in him turns him into the playboy of the western world. Michael James Flaherty (age 45-60) A jovial publican, the good-humored Michael James allows his daughter, Pegeen, to run the pub with a strong hand. Like the other villagers, Michael James initially regards Christy as a hero, but as soon as the truth is discovered, he is one of the first to call for his hanging. Pegeen Flaherty (aka Pegeen Mike) (age 18-25) Pegeen, a young, attractive woman, runs the pub for her father. Her strength of character and quick tongue suggests she is capable of taking good care of herself. At the beginning of the play, Pegeen is engaged to Shawn, whom she is easily able to control. Her romantic nature and active imagination make her fall for Christy. Her fiery temper makes her turn against him. Widow Quin (age 30-50) Widow Quin is a lusty woman who is engaged in a sexual rivalry with Pegeen for the attentions of Christy. She appreciates men, although she hit her husband with a rusty pick and killed him. This act prompts her to feel an affinity toward Christy. Shawn Keogh (age 20-40) Shawn is engaged to Pegeen. She often calls him Shaneen, which translates to little Shawn, teasing him for his timid demeanor. He has a conservative streak and resorts to his true self when he admits to the widow that he is too afraid to turn Christy in to the police for fear of retribution. Old Mahon (age 45-60) Christys bad-tempered father has alienated all of his children with his brutish behavior. His constant berating of Christy provoked his initially mild-mannered son to crack his skull. When Old Mahon comes looking for Christy at Michael Jamess pub, he is bent on revenge. Jimmy Farrell (age 35-60) Jimmy is an amorous villager who flatters Pegeen when he visits the pub. He and his friend Philly represent the voice of the villagers as they respond to Christys story. Jimmys praise of his actions helps build Christys confidence and create his mythic stature in the community. Philly OCullen (age 35-60) Philly, along with Jimmy, represents the collective voice of the townspeople. Whereas Jimmy is more trusting, Philly is more cynical; yet he too is taken in by the excitement surrounding Christys actions, at least initially. When he learns the truth, he, like the others, is ready to hang the boy. Sara Tansey and Honor Blake (age 18-30) are village girls that start off as Christy groupies then join the mob at the end of the play. Actors cast as Michael, Shawn, Jimmy, Philly, Mahon, Sara and Honor will have limited rehearsals for the first month of rehearsal. Please feel free to contact director Wendy Wright with any questions at email@example.com or (734) 276-7166.

I'm looking for fun, confident people with imagination. This is a big, energetic rock musical, and it's been my dream project for years. I don't care if you're not a dancer; just get up there and have a blast. I don't care if you're not a great singer; just get up there and sing your heart out. This is your chance to play a horny teenager, no matter what your age is, so come in and have fun. This is a satirical, campy show, but it has an edge too, and a message for our troubled times. Come in with the right attitude. This is a new script and score. During the process, we may make changes to the show, and our actors must be prepared for that.

Sketches and vignettes range from classroom scenarios and clinical settings to departmental meetings. CRLT theatre focuses on identity/social issues pertaining to gender, race/ethnicity, mental health, ability/(dis)ability, class, and other identity characteristics. The CRLT Theatre Program has performed in national venues, including the University of Wisconsin, the University of Chicago, Snowbird, Utah at the AAHE Conference, and a high profile NSF event in Syracuse, NY. The current troupe recently returned from POD in Wisconsin, where they performed for 700 faculty developers from across the country. The CRLT Players actors are never responsible for any costs associated with these travels. Actors will not only be trained in different interactive and theatre techniques, but will also take part in discussions and workshops to gain a deeper understanding of the many issues that CRLT addresses. It is important that potential CRLT Players be open to other points of views and committed to honestly and sincerely engaging in difficult dialogues. This program is growing as a model for other universities and teaching centers both nationally and internationally (we have performed for directors and staff from teaching centers in New Zealand and Australia). Actors will have the opportunity to travel and perform in different locations across the country, and possible in Europe. All expenses are paid and plus additional compensation. In addition to the regular work of the program, the National Science Foundation is sponsoring our second three-day institute in June to help other universities create their own interactive drama programs. As the model for such programs, The CRLT Theatre Program will be responsible for the training of attendees on the many aspects of interactive theatre. Attendees of the Institute are theatre professors and prominent artists, science faculty, and directors of campus initiatives. Auditions will be a group audition, and likely small. Our goal is to create a relaxed atmosphere that allows performers to learn more about the CRLT Theatre Program and participate in multiple audition activities. Participants are encouraged to prepare a short monologue, but this is not essential. There will be some improv (non-comedic) and cold reading from script. Potential CRLT performers must: - have a flexible schedule - be organized and clear regarding their commitments and schedule - commit to at least a year - make the CRLT Theatre program an equal priority to future or current theatrical pursuits - put the whole of a production over their own performance - have an open mind to the many different styles of theatre and definitions of theatre To register for the audition please call or E-mail your name and contact information to: Devon Dupay, Assistant Director of the CRLT Theatre Program 734-936-0646 dseybert(at)umich.edu For further information or to audition by appointment, please contact: Jeffrey Steiger, Director of the CRLT Theatre Program 734-615-8309 pixi(at)umich.edu

THE PLAY: Written in 1592, the play tells the story of the rise and fall of King Edward II. After his father Edward I Longshanks dies, King Edward II sends a letter to his former lover Piers Gaveston, inviting him to return to England and rule the kingdom with him. Gaveston, having been previously banished by King Edward I and the Bishop of Coventry for his homosexual relations with Edward II, comes back with a vengeance. The new Kings intent is to live openly with Gaveston as his lover, regardless of who may object, and lavishes him with noble titles, money and gifts. This weighs hard on the Earls of the realm, who, unlike Gaveston, are worthy of nobility by birth or service, and the soldiers, who are short on food and pay, yet expected to defend the borders of the country. The church is also up in arms, given the unnatural relationship between the King and his minion", and the blasphemous assault that Edward and Gaveston impose upon the Bishop of Coventry on Gavestons return. Edwards Queen, Isabella from France, is also openly rejected, and desperate for the Kings affection, is much at his mercy and whim. Spite breeds pain, pain breeds hate, and hate breeds revenge, as all seem to become victims of the turn of fortunes wheel. We see a King rendered powerless by his love, a Queens morals compromised by her desperation, the Earlsduty to their king betrayed by their plight for justice, a soldiers honor polluted by the temptation of power, and the Churchs attempt to restore the sacred through degradation. The only wisdom seems to come from a child, the young Prince Edward III. We are looking for people of all ages, race and ethnic backgrounds. There are several parts available.

Very strong and menacing. Rage, cut with a side of fury. Motivated purely be revenge. Must be able to whistle. Sympathetic and vindictive. MRS LOVETT - Alto/Mezzo. Conniving and manipulative, very comic and a little desperate and pitiable. Has her own agenda and will do whatever it takes to achieve it. TOBIAS - Tenor. A "slow" boy who moves from the servitude of Pirelli to the servitude (and adoration) of Lovett. Highly compassionate. ANTHONY HOPE - Baritone/Tenor. The romantic lead, and the "hope" of the show. He is all goodness and idealism. JUDGE TURPIN - Bass. The villain of the story. Gets what he wants by taking it and removing anyone that gets in his way (such as sending an innocent man to prison in order to take his wife, then claiming their daughter as his own ward). He is lecherous and completely unsympathetic. A power yielding tyrant. JOHANNA - Soprano, the ingÃ©nue who is the ward (and object of lust) of the Judge, the daughter of Todd and the love of Anthony. Demure and frightened, hoping for escape. Cannot be claustrophobic. BEADLE BAMFORD - High baritone/tenor with a strong falsetto. The Judge's enforcer. Cocky and arrogant, who thinks himself higher than his station, occasionally foppish. BEGGAR WOMAN - Mezzo. A desperate, sad, and gentle woman one second, and an insane, lude hussy the next. In the end, a harbinger of doom. A lot of dichotomy is needed in this role PIRELLI - Tenor. A sort of parody of an Italian tenor. A pompous and arrogant competitive barber/conman. Cannot be claustrophobic.

Otto, Leo, and Gilda are the best of friends, but when passion rearranges their comfortable triangle, can they also rearrange their carefully planned Design for Living? Please prepare a short (1-2 mins.) comic monologue in British dialect. There will also be cold-readings from the script. Actors should plan to stay for about one hour. Lead roles available for two men and one woman, age range 20's to 30's. Numerous supporting roles for both sexes of all ages.
This is not an audition, but rather a read-through of my screenplay adaptation of Jacqueline Carey's "Kushiel's Dart." I would like to get a group of actors together to read through some selected passages from my screenplay to hear how they sound out loud. There is no guarantee of parts in any future productions, nor is there pay. This is just a chance to hang out with some fellow actors and "feel out" this new screenplay and give feedback. I'll be screening people over the phone, then inviting selected actors for the main get-together on the 16th. Due to the nature of the screenplay all actors must be 18 or over, but none of the more "adult" scenes will be read. I'm looking for maybe two or three males, and two or three females. Overactors need not apply. ;-)

Attention!!! Looking for Actors, dancers, musicians, and Rock & Roll enthusiasts. I'm currently casting for a short student production. This production will be a music video, approx. 5 mins in length. The song for this video sounds like old school Rock n' Roll from the late 50s and early 60s, mixed with Hip Hop. It's a bit reminicent of the 50s song "At The Hop" by Danny & The Juniors. I'm trying to draw similarities between Rock n' Roll teen culture of the 50s and 6os; and today's modern Hip hop teen culture. The video also glamourizes the fun aspects the Rock n'Roll generation between the years 1955 and 1964. For this video I am looking for a variety of cast- Men & Women ages 16-60, all ethnicities welcome. Here's a quick breakdown of ages/roles needed: ages 16 to 26 to play Rock & Roll teens,teen dancers,greasers, rock band (Beatles/Stones/Who) ages 18 to 60 to play Beatnik poets/Coffee house folks, High school teachers, school principal ages 18 to 30 for segments of the video, where impersonation of rock era music artists/groups is needed. Musical artists like: Chuck Berry, Elvis, Little Richard,Jerry Lee Lewis,Buddy Holly, The Ronnetts and The Supremes. Dancers with background and knowledge of 50s/60s dance styles(like the Twist,the swim, and the jerk), is a plus, but not a necessity. Dancers who have skills in b-boying/breakdancing is also a plus. For Actors/Actresses - Vocal acting will be minimum, because this is a music video - speaking roles would be prior to the start of the song, or near the end. I'm more looking for silent role playing and character impersonation. Musicians: 16-30 who can play Piano,Drums,Electric Guitar,Bass guitar, Saxaphone, or can sing. I'm also in need of people with experience in set design, stagework, painters,builders,and persons with behind the camera experience. There are three main places I plan to shoot: A high school/college auditorium setting, a juke joint/diner/ice cream parlor (Yesterday's Collection on Jackson Rd), and A coffee house location for the 60s portion of the video. Some of the auditorium scenes wil be shot to resemble an American bandstand or Ed Sullivan show performance. Also, because this is a Hip hop/Rock and roll video there will be a part of the video where elements of Hip Hop (i.e: turntablism and breakdancing) will enter. This is a bit of a 3 period video: late 50s, Early 60s, and mid 80s. And one goal is to blend them with modern times. For costumes: (50s and 60s attire mostly) You will need to bring any vintage clothes that are from the years 1955 to 1964. If you are unclear about what clothes to bring I have some web sites listed that have good examples of what I'm talking about: http://www.daddyos.com/index.html http://www.thevideobeat.com/link_clothing.htm You can get some clothing ideas from these other films and videos: Grease Bye Bye Birdie Austin Powers Buddy Holly (music Video) - By Weezer Roses (music video) - By Outkast You don't have to buy new costumes for this video - if you know any one with old clothing from that period that should work just fine. For guys a costume can be as simple as getting a pair of Chuck Taylor converse high tops (sneakers), and a white t-shirt and jeans. Props are also good. Shooting for the video will take place during this March and April. The dates & times will be announced. The initial audition will take place this month (March). Contact me for exact audition day. It is desired that you have a pretty open schedule. This is a non-paid production, however a copy of the video can be provided for resume and/or enjoyment. Thanks A lot.
There is a large age range in this show. There are parts for Males--4-6 Women--6-8 There will be no pre-casting

AUDITIONS for the CRLT Theatre Program The CRLT Theatre Program is looking for a diverse and responsible group of actors to perform in a variety of roles.

Hours: 15 hrs per week, guaranteed Pay: $17.00 an hr (to start) Auditions: February 10th, 6pm - 8pm OR by appointment Location (for February 10): POND Room, Michigan Union The CRLT Theatre Program Through performances, workshops, seminars, and individual consultations, the CRLT Theatre Program provides educators and administrators with an innovative and dynamic approach to sparking dialogue, promoting inclusivity, and effecting positive change inside the classroom, department, and (university) institution. Sketches and vignettes range from classroom scenarios and clinical settings to departmental meetings. CRLT theatre focuses on identity/social issues pertaining to gender, race/ethnicity, mental health, ability/(dis)ability, class, and other identity characteristics. The CRLT Theatre Program currently has several trips planned to perform in national venues, including the University of Wisconsin, the University of Chicago, Snowbird, Utah at the AAHE Conference, and a high profile NSF event in Syracuse, NY. The current troupe recently returned from DC where they performed at the National Science Foundation for NSF Program Directors. The CRLT Players actors are never responsible for any costs associated with these travels. Actors will not only be trained in different interactive and theatre techniques, but will also take part in discussions and workshops to gain a deeper understanding of the identity issues that CRLT addresses. It is important that potential CRLT Players be open to other points of views and committed to honestly and sincerely engaging in these dialogues. This program is growing as a model for other universities and teaching centers both nationally and internationally (we have performed for directors and staff from teaching centers in New Zealand and Australia), and actors may have opportunities to pursue this work in other locations and in different roles. In addition to the regular work of the program, The National Science Foundation is sponsoring a three-day institute in June to help other universities create their own interactive drama programs. As the model for such programs, The CRLT Theatre Program will be responsible for the training of attendees on the many aspects of interactive theatre.
