The Michigan Classical Repertory Theatre will hold auditions for the Pulitzer Prize winning political satire Both Your Houses by Maxwell Anderson, directed by Brian Hilligoss, at the Blackbird Theatre/Children’s Creative Center at 1600 Pauline Blvd in Ann Arbor on Monday and Tuesday. June 16th and 17th at 7:00 p.m. Performances will be held from October 2-19, 2008 at the Riverside Arts Center, 76 N. Huron Street in Ypsilanti. Show times are 8:00 p.m. Thursdays-Saturdays and 2:00 p.m. Sundays. Rehearsals will begin in August and run Sunday – Thursday (evenings). Roles are available for 13 men and 3 women, ages 20-70. Both Your Houses is a political satire that is as relevant today as it was when it was first performed in 1933. An idealistic young congressman, Alan McClean, takes the surprising position of opposing a bill that provides money for a huge construction project in his own district. Though his fight will probably cost him future support from his peers, from his constituents, and from the woman in whom he is interested (the daughter of the Appropriations Committee chairman), McClean struggles to gather opposition to a bill he knows is wrong. Is a young man’s idealism any match for the accepted way of doing business? Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for drama in 1933, Both Your Houses planted the seeds for such standards of the 1930’s as Mr. Smith Goes to Washington and The Front Page. Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script. Please bring a headshot and resume if you have them. Audition scenes, play synopsis and character descriptions are available at www.mcrt.org. If you would like to sign up for an audition day or if you have questions regarding auditions, please email mcrtmail@gmail.com or call Wendy Wright (Producer) at (734) 276-7166.

Parts for 5 men and 2 women. Charlie’s well meaning friend, Sgt. Froggy LeSueur persuades Charlie to join him on a three-day respite at a rundown fishing lodge near an army base where Froggy conducts an annual demolition class. To protect his super shy friend from unwanted social intercourse with landlady Betty Meeks and her guests, Froggy passes him off as a foreigner who neither speaks or understands English. Once alone the fun really begins, as Charlie overhears more than he should, when a group of devious characters must deal with a stranger who they think doesn’t understand a word being said. That he does fuels the nonstop hilarity of the play and sets up the wildly funny climax. Charlie’s metamorphoses from bland doormat to lovable charmer with personality-plus make for a farce that is a highly charged hilarious evening.

Inspired by the original 1936 film of the same name, this raucous musical comedy takes a tongue-in-cheek look at the hysteria caused when clean-cut kids fall prey to marijuana, leading them on a hysterical downward spiral filled with evil jazz music, sex and violence. You won't be able to resist the spoofy fun of REEFER MADNESS. The addictive and clever musical numbers range from big Broadway-style showstoppers to swing tunes like "Down at the Ol' Five and Dime" and the Vegas-style "Listen to Jesus, Jimmy," featuring J.C. Himself leading a chorus of showgirl angels. This dynamic show will go straight to your head! REEFER MADNESS is a highly stylized and satirical political commentary. It contains adult humor, religious parody, and drug use, as well as suggested violence and sexual explicitness. It therefore may be inappropriate for younger performers and audiences. Roles Available:JACK, MAE, JIMMY, PLACARD GIRL, LECTURER, 3 CHORUS FEMALES, and 3 CHORUS MALES. Role descriptions can be found at http://www.rnh.com/show_detail.asp?id=RM

Dexter Community Theatre has a proud history of producing quality artistic productions in Dexter, Michigan for the past 25 years. We are looking for THREE MEN to complete the talented cast of our Spring show, Arthur Miller's "The Crucible". This show is a dark and twisted tale of paranoia, jealousy, revenge and greed set in 1692's puritan Massachusetts. These are the three roles we are looking to fill: Deputy-Governor Danforth: Male, 50's and up. Danforth believes firmly that the law of man on earth was ordained by God. He believes it is his solemn duty to uphold every letter of God's law, and sees anything that questions his authority or the court as a direct attack upon God which he must crush utterly and without mercy. He is firm, solemn, and utterly implacable – physical embodiment of God on earth. Thomas Putnam: Male, 50's – 60. A well-to-do landowner. He is accustomed to getting his way, financially and otherwise, and uses the witchcraft crisis as an opportunity to benefit himself by seizing the property of the accused, etc. An oily and somewhat repellent man, who views himself as upright and just. Giles Corey: Male, 50's to 80's. Though no longer young, Giles is still powerful for his age. He is intelligent and inquisitive, and somewhat sarcastic. Tough as nails, and feisty. To be considered for any of these roles, please contact the Director, Angelle Chandler. If available, please email resume and headshot. (You do not need resume/headshot to be considered!) If selected for consideration, we will contact you with audition details. There will be a read-through of the show on Wednesday, March 19th at 7pm. You DO NOT have to be available for this read-through in order to be considered for a role. We will be accepting inquiries on these roles until they are filled. Please contact with any questions.

We will be holding a Mass Meeting at Dexter High School's Center for Performing Arts on Sunday, March 9, 2008 at 7pm, to provide information about the show, opportunities for involvement, and the audition process. We will be signing up for audition times at the meeting, but walk-ins will also be welcome. MASS MEETING: Dexter High School Center for Performing Arts 2200 N. Parker Rd., Dexter MI TIME: Sunday, March 9, 2008 at 7pm ABOUT THE SHOW: Arthur Miller's modern classic is a profoundly disturbing vision of human nature, steeped in themes of paranoia and persecution, jealousy and revenge. Set amidst the backdrop of the Salem Witch Trials of 1692, the play still speaks clearly to issues close to the heart of all human interactions today -- the desire to appear 'normal' to one's peers, the tendency to deny responsibility for one's own actions and their consequences, and to look outside oneself when tragedy befalls. The frightful ease with which concepts like 'honor' and 'truth' lose their meanings will serve as a reminder to us all to reject the status quo, and be brave enough to stand up for what each of us believes is right. The Crucible has roles for 11 men (age 30's to 80's) and 11 women (ages 10 yrs to 70's). Character descriptions are now available on our website. More information, including audition selections, will be available SOON.

Murder!", which have Lyrics by Steve Cuden, Leslie Bricusse, and Frank Wildhorn & Music by Frank Wildhorn Based on the story by Robert Louis Stevenson A true musical theatre phenomenon, “Jekyll & Hyde” attracted legions of loyal fans even before the show began its smash-hit Broadway run. An evocative tale of the epic battle between good and evil, “Jekyll & Hyde” is based on Robert Louis Stevenson's classic story about a brilliant doctor whose experiments with human personality create a murderous counterpart. Convinced the cure for his father's mental illness lies in the separation of Man's evil nature from his good, Dr. Henry Jekyll unwittingly unleashes his own dark side, wreaking havoc in the streets of late 19th century London as the savage, maniacal Edward Hyde. “Jekyll & Hyde” is pure pulse-pounding theatre, with that same macabre combination of fun and fright that fuels such classics as “Sweeney Todd” and “The Phantom Of The Opera,” and a lush, romantic pop score that includes the hit songs "This Is The Moment" and "Someone Like You."

AUDITION INFORMATION: Applicants should prepare 1-2 minute Shakespearian monologue that is age-appropriate and for a role in which you could feasibly be cast. Any of Shakespeare's plays are appropriate for selecting a monologue, not just the plays being produced in the current season. Following the monologue performance, applicants will participate in a brief interview. Applicants should bring a completed audition application (available for download at www.villageshakes.com), a current theatrical resume, and headshot.

PRODUCTION INFORMATION: One Acting Ensemble will be cast with actors playing roles in both Twelfth Night and Henry IV, Part 1. Both plays will be presented in rotating repertory in an arena stage format (audience on four sides of the stage). Plot Summary for TWELFTH NIGHT by William Shakespeare Separated in a storm at sea, identical twins Viola and Sebastian are washed ashore in different parts of Illyria, each believing the other drowned. Disguising herself as a young man, Cesario, Viola enters the service of Duke Orsino, who employs her as a go-between in his love-suit to the Countess Olivia. But Olivia falls in love with "Cesario" instead, and later mistakes Sebastian for "him". Meanwhile, Olivia's reprobate uncle, Sir Toby Belch, and his associates persuade the self-righteous steward Malvolio that Olivia loves him -- with consequences as alarming as they are hilarious. Plot Summary for HENRY IV, PART 1 by William Shakespeare Henry IV, Part 1 chronicles the struggle of King Henry IV to maintain control of the English throne, which he usurped from Richard II. King Henry is sorely disappointed in his son and heir, Hal, the Prince of Wales. The madcap prince wastes his time in the taverns of Eastcheap with the lower classes of English society. Hal's closest friend and favorite drinking companion is Falstaff: a fat, witty old man with a penchant for both thievery and exaggeration. King Henry's foremost political concern lies with the Percys, a family of noblemen instrumental in his rise to power. Now discontented over the King's refusal to ransom their captured relative, Mortimer, the Percys plan a rebellion against the King. The family, led by the eldest son, Hotspur, unites forces with Douglas of Scotland and Glendower of Wales, leaving the King with no choice but civil war. Prince Hal, severely rebuked by his father, vows to abandon his wild ways and reclaim his honor by defeating Hotspur in battle. Drafting tavern friends to fight in the King's army, Hal attempts to win back his father's approval and affection on the battlefield at Shrewsbury.

Now casting for: Mack the Knife -Art cinema with a hint of action/adventure. Plot Synopsis: Murray hitchhikes into a town where two old friends of his live and tries to insert himself back into their lives. In short order, however, Murray and his friend Jimmy find themselves in trouble with the local small-time crime ring Jimmy works for and Murray’s forced to leave town again. They arrive at an old motel off a rural stretch of highway and decide to board there for a few days while they figure out what to do. The hotel owner, it turns out, has a history similar to Murray’s and takes him under his wing, and Murray befriends him along with the group of other semi-permanent tenants that the owner has offered as a kind of get-away or sanctuary from their problems. Murray begins to think that maybe this might be a good place to stay when the owner dies in his sleep from complications from a lifetime of heavy smoking, leaving Murray and the other tenants adrift and homeless with an uncertain future… MURRAY – (23-30 y.o.) An eternally homeless, wandering character, currently traveling across the upper parts of the country in the fall doing odd (often at least dubiously legal) jobs for money and using his few contacts and friends to find places to stay and live until he continues traveling onward. A little bit of an alcoholic with a history of petty thievery and crime, Murray has a habit of being unwelcome or quickly wearing out whatever welcome he might receive… JULIANA – (23-30 y.o.) A hometown friend of Murray’s, back from their high school days. They had briefly dated, but had decided less than a week into it that it was a terribly bad idea. She hasn’t seen or talked with Murray for near six years and is currently living alone working as many part time jobs as she can to support herself and get by. JIMMY – (23-30 y.o.) Another friend of Murray’s. They’ve kept in occasional phone and letter contact. Jimmy just outside of the town Juliana lives in, and he works on the surface as a food delivery man but is in reality working as a driver for a small-time mob-styled crime ring in town. ROBERT – (55-65 y.o.) An aging man who owns a little motel in a small town out in the rural parts of the country. He’s the de facto landlord for a group of semi-permanent tenants who’ve taken to the motel as kind of a sanctuary or in-between house from their various life problems. It’s seems that Rob was a bit of scoundrel of his own making back in the day, but has been more or less formally retired from that kind of life for some time. Rob was a heavy smoker since his teenage years and some of that may finally be catching up with him as he’s been experiencing fits of coughing and chest pains of late… Our film will be about 20 minutes and shot with glorious Super-16 film. While we cannot offer monetary compensation (at this time, at least), we can offer food, lodging (if necessary), gas compensation to location shoots, copy, credit, and acknowledgment, as the film will be widely submitted to festivals. Shooting will begin next weekend and will take place until mid-November. Weekends and some weekdays(negotiable) may be necessary.

The Hartland Players are proud to present the side-splittingly hilarious show, I HATE HAMLET, by Paul Rudnick Andrew Rally seems to have it all: celebrity and acclaim from his starring role in a hit television series; a rich beautiful girlfriend; a glamorous, devoted agent; the perfect New York apartment; and the chance to play Hamlet in Central Park. There are, however, a couple of glitches in paradise. Andrew's series has been canceled; his girlfriend is clinging to her innocence with unyielding conviction; and he has no desire to play Hamlet. When Andrew's agent visits him, she reminisces about her brief romance with John Barrymore many years ago, in Andrew's apartment. This prompts a séance to summon his ghost. From the moment Barrymore returns, dressed in high Shakespearean garb, Andrew's life is no longer his own. Barrymore, fortified by champagne and ego, presses Andrew to accept the part and fulfill his actor's destiny. The action becomes more hilarious with the entrance of Andrew's deal-making friend from LA, spouting the laid-back hype of the Coast and offering Andrew a fabulous new TV deal worth millions of dollars. The laughs are nonstop as Andrew wrestles with his conscience, Barrymore, his sword, and the fact that he fails as Hamlet in Central Park.

[Website editor's note: Sometimes postings show up that are so off-the-wall I can't help wondering what sort of mind is behind them. Here we seem to have a Las Vegas-based touring company of some sort seeking a choreographer. In big letters, the posting says, "DO NOT CONTACT US." Presumably they will do a Vulcan mind-meld with a psychic overlay to tune into prospects on the astral plane! It then advises you to send your materials "to the email address provided" and of course--this is that kind of listing!--there is no email address provided. I'm leaving it up on the website as a wonderful example of the kind of bozo-brained posting no producer should ever commit!]

Now, in collaboration with daughter, Carrie Hamilton, Burnett has penned a play based on her memoir, One More Time. Set in California in 1941 and 1951, Hollywood Arms is the funny and moving story of three generations of women living on welfare in a one-room apartment, one block north of Hollywood Boulevard. The cast of characters includes a tough, funny, yet tender pill-popping Christian Scientist grandmother, a beautiful wide-eyed and distant mother who is struggling to be a writer, only to drown her ambitions in a bottle, a loving but absent and alcoholic father, and a young girl whose only escape is up on the roof of their rundown apartment house where she creates her own magical world at the foot of the Hollywood Hills. Finally, it's a story about shattered hopes and realized dreams.

Watermark Pictures will be filming their first feature-length production beginning Spring 2008. This film is dedicated to Natalie Salazar, a young girl stricken with cancer and in need of financial help to pay for her medical costs. This production will be aired on Comcast in at least 26 cities across Michigan, as well as in a few local theaters. There is a possibility that it will be played on OSTN, which will air across the country in all 50 states. Brief Synopsis: A young girl has been in a coma for 5 years. The great pain and suffering her family has been through has caused her parents to divorce. Her mother still maintains hope for her recovery, and visits her everyday, bringing along a new story to read to her with every visit. Her father, however, has become isolated and cold, refusing to talk or even think about his dying child. He has remarried a young, selfish, gold-digging woman who is always trying to get him and his wife to “pull the plug” so that there will be less money lost from medical costs for her to spend frivolously instead. Meanwhile, despite the morbid fate all the doctors have determined for the sleeping girl, the mother is sure that she can hear her, and thus continues reading. The audience is swept into the dream world of the sleeping girl, who lives vicariously through her dreams and the fairytales her mother reads.

ABOUT THE SHOW Mandela is in prison. Bush is in office. And Black students are, quite literally, under attack: by racist jokes on campus radio, threatening messages to our women, and a system unconcerned with dwindling retention rates.//We were being systematically eliminated. In response, students protested. They rallied. They sat-in. And BAM! A Black Action Movement brought worldwide attention to the shameful stain of racism at the University of Michigan. Students were angry and hurt and tired. But more than that, they were inspired, determined, and driven to change the world around them. //The Music of COLORS is the fruit of that time. A theatrical experience in the spirit of the musicals HAIR and BRING IN THE NOISE/ BRING IN THE FUNK, this original song cycle uses pop, gospel, folk, and contemporary art song to chronicle our history and Black America's journey to its higher self.//COLORS: DREAM OF THE MASTA is reverent and historical and sexy and sincere. //While Mandela is no longer in prison, Bush is still in office. The world is different but very much the same; and so is life at Michigan. But with commitment to community building, a focus on brotherhood, and faith in our inner strength, the future will be even brighter.// CASTING: Adult age performers; Actors/Narrators/Spoke Word Artists; Dancers/Mime Artists; SATB Vocal Ensemble.//ALL RACES, GENDERS, AND ETHNICITIES ARE ENCOURAGED TO AUDITION.

The scene is a fishing lodge in rural Georgia often visited by "Froggy" LeSeuer, a British demolition expert who occasionally runs training sessions at a nearby army base. This time "Froggy" has brought along a friend - a pathologically shy young man named Charlie, who is overcome with fear at the thought of making conversation with strangers. "Froggy," before departing, tells all assembled that Charlie is from an exotic foreign country and speaks no English. When “Froggy” leaves Charlie alone, the fun really begins as Charlie overhears more than he should—the evil plans of a sinister, two-faced minister and his redneck associate, the fact that the minister's pretty fiancée is pregnant, and many other damaging revelations made with the thought that Charlie doesn't understand a word being said. The fact that he really does understand, fuels the nonstop hilarity of the play, and sets up the wildly funny climax in which things go uproariously awry for the "bad guys," while the "good guys" emerge triumphant. Characters: Charlie Baker — thin, shy - his wife, who has six months to live, made him go on vacation with his friend Froggy, Age 35-55. “Froggy" LeSueur — A chubby Englishman who loves adventure, Age 35-55. Betty Meeks — A widow who owns a fishing lodge in Tilghman County, Georgia. She is sweet, naive, and intrigued by all things foreign, Age 60-80. Catherine Simms — The beautiful, pregnant lady engaged to David, Age 18-30 Ellard Simms — Catherine's not-so-bright little brother, Male aged 15 – 25. Owen Musser — A mean-suspicious-slimy Tilghman County property inspector, Aged 25-55. Rev. David Marshall Lee —Sinister-two-faced man, recently engaged to Catherine, age 22-35.

Chelsea Area Players Winter Dinner Theater production will be something different and unique this year! It will be a sort of 'review' type show with various performances, ranging from singing, dancing, to monologues and short scenes. With the temporary title of "Live, Laugh, Love" (taken from Stephen Sondheim's "Follies"). Auditions are open to anyone, of all ages. Of course, individuals who are willing to learn a new song or be directed in a scene (if they don't already have something prepared) are also welcome. Please contact us with any questions whatsoever. The show will have the theme of the salute to the human spirit, to endurance, and thus especially through love, community, and family. Songs that convey a 'we're all in this together' ("You'll Never Walk Alone, "We Go Together," "What I Did for Love," "The Sun'll Come Out Tomorrow," "Together, Wherever We Go," etc.) feeling are truly what we are looking for, so give it some thought and we look forward to seeing you at auditions which will be casual and open. Rehearsals will be scheduled at the mutual convenience of the director and performers, therefore, depending on the nature of your piece, you may only need very few actual rehearsals, thus freeing you up to still be a part of, perhaps, a current production elsewhere, shall we say. *wink wink* We will schedule at least one or two run-throughs to get the pacing of the show settled. The show will be directed by Diana Hunt with members of the CAP board producing the show. If you'd like to be involved with anything 'behind the scenes' as opposed to being on the stage, do let us know as all are welcome to join us!
