This website provides information about auditions to be held in the Ann Arbor, Michigan area. That area includes Washtenaw County, Michigan and the counties of Southeastern Michigan. Please don't enter audition information for events outside that area. Auditions for films, dance, theater, opera, improv, and similar activities of interest to theatrical actors, directors and designers are welcome. Postings for design, technical, logistic and administrative work are also welcome.

These auditions are completed. They are posted here for historical interest. As you browse through these listings, you may find companies that are of interest to you. Also, note that some companies audition at approximately the same times each year. This listing may help you identify companies you may wish to contact about their future plans.

Lawrence and Faye Greenberg and Jamie Houston Music Adapted, Arranged and Produced by Bryan Louiselle Based on a Disney Channel Original Movie written by Peter Barsocchini Disney Channel's smash hit movie musical comes to life on your stage! While on their family vacations, high school jock and basketball star Troy and brainy Gabriella - two teens who are worlds apart - meet. During a karaoke contest ("Start of Something New") they discover their love for singing, and an interest in each other. After vacation, Troy discovers that Gabriella is the new girl at East High. Still a bit inspired by their holiday vacation performance, Troy and Gabriella both decide to audition for the school musical. Troy's best friend Chad and Gabriella's new friend Taylor discourage them from carrying out their plans. Troy comes to his senses and immerses himself back into basketball and the championship ("Get'cha Head in the Game"). Taylor does some online research and discovers Gabriella is a scholastic superstar and quickly recruits her for the decathalon competition. Sharpay and Ryan - the ruling school play stars - are also gearing up for yet another starring role in the school musical, and they've made it very clear that everyone else better stay out of their way! Auditions begin and all the hopefuls try out for Ms. Darbus, East High's English and Drama teacher ("What I've Been Looking For"). Not knowing each other's plan, both Troy and Gabriella decide to secretly audition and sneak into the school theatre - but too late, the auditions have just ended. Kelsi, the show's student composer feels sorry for them, and at Troy's request, plays the song for them to sing together ("What I've Been Looking For" Reprise). Ms. Darbus just happens to hear their performance and gives them a callback. Well Sharpay is furious! How dare they break the "rules" of East High! The whole school agrees and everyone chimes in during a lunch break ("Stick to the Status Quo"). As everyone is busy practicing for callbacks, Sharpay is plotting her revenge, the basketball team wants their star player back, and the scholastic team wants their new brainiac to help them win the decathalon. After Chad and Taylor's plan to win their friends back seems to have worked, Gabriella is crushed that Troy would turn his back on her and their singing dreams ("When There Was Me and You"). Eventually, Chad and Taylor feel terrible that they've manipulated their friends for their own selfish needs and confess to Troy and Gabriella-they put their heads together to help win the basketball game, the decathalon and hopefully get them over to the callbacks just in time. Sharpay and Ryan pull off a polished performance ("Bop to the Top") and are a shoe-in for the starring roles. Once again, Troy and Gabriella arrive too late for their callback, due to Sharpay's conniving plans and are out of the running. But the whole school rallies behind them and they pull off a fantastic performance ("Breaking Free"). Sharpay's iciness melts away and the whole school comes together as winners ("We're All in This Together"). Character Breakdown: ALAN - has a flair for couture CATHY - a little too eager CHAD DANFORTH - number two on the basketball team, Troy’s best friend COACH BOLTON - basketball coach, Troy’s dad CYNDRA CYNDRA, has operatic aspirations FANS/SPECTATORS - at the basketball championship game and the Science Decathlon GABRIELLA MONTEZ - the shy new girl at school JACK SCOTT - the PA announcer, a.k.a. the Velvet Fog of East High JAMES - an earthworm expressionist KARAOKE M.C. - voiceover in ski-lodge flashback KELSI NIELSEN - the mousey composer of Juliet and Romeo MARTHA COX - has a secret passion for hip-hop MODERATOR - voiceover science decathlon moderator MS.

When a postulant proves too high-spirited for the religious life, she is dispatched to serve as governess for the seven children of a widowed naval Captain. Her growing rapport with the youngsters, coupled with her generosity of spirit, gradually captures the heart of the stern Captain, and they marry. Upon returning from their honeymoon they discover that Austria has been invaded by the Nazis, who demand the Captain's immediate service in their navy. The family's narrow escape over the mountains to Switzerland on the eve of World War II provides one of the most thrilling and inspirational finales ever presented in the theatre. The motion picture version remains the most popular movie musical of all time. Seeking Equity and non-Equity actors for the following roles: Maria (EQUITY ACTRESSES ONLY) - soprano to play 21 - 32, a sweet, young postulant whose love of freedom makes it obvious to her superiors that she is not suited for religious life. Must play guitar. Captain Georg Von Trapp - baritone to play 40 - 60, a widowed naval captain and strict father to his seven children. His hard heart is melted by Maria and her love for his children. Mother Abbess - soprano to play 40 or older, the head of the Abbey, and Maria's mentor. Max Detweiller - baritone to play 30 - 55, comedic actor, called Uncle Max by the children, Max manages their singing "career", a friend to the Captain. Maybe a bit too focused on money. Elsa Schraeder - alto to play 30 - 40, engaged to the Captain, not close to his children. Maybe a bit too focused on money. Sister Berthe, Sister Sophia & Sister Margaretta - mezzos to play at least 30 years old or older, nuns at Maria's Abbey. They sing "How Do You Solve a Problem Like Maria" with Mother Abbess. Franz - any voice type to play 30 - 60. Captain Von Trapp's butler. Frau Schmidt - any voice type to play 30 - 45. Captain Von Trapp's house keeper. Herr Zeller - any voice type to play 30 or older.

THE CHILDREN: (NOTE: all children will be double cast except Leisl and Rolf) Liesl - mezzo to play 15 to 18, the Captain's eldest daughter, in love with Rolf, a bit rebellious. Rolf - baritone to play 16 - 20, a delivery boy in love with Liesl, becomes a Nazi and enemy to the Von Trapp family. Friedrich - boy soprano to play 13 - 15, the Captain's oldest son.

CastingInfo

I am making a short film about members of the pro-life movement in a dystopian future. It is partially a product of the University's Students for Life, but also a project for fun and for artistic fulfillment. Most of us are friends playing ourselves, but one of our cast members had to drop out--and unfortunately, he is the twin brother of another cast member, so we need someone who looks like him. It is a fairly small part and would require filming this Friday and probably this Saturday and/or next week, as well. We can work around your schedule. Breakdown: 16-21, male, youthful-looking, short brown hair, around 5'10"-6'0. You shouldn't mind being in a movie with strong pro-life themes. The character betrayed his brother and the pro-life movement, but ends up being a double agent and a helpful but emotionally-detached force. (It's not as cheesy as it sounds.) Please email me if you are interested!

Curtains features 13 principle roles (5F/8M), including several male non-singing roles. The show will also include a chorus up to 24. Limited availibility for children, cast on a case by case basis. Curtains takes place in 1959, beginning with the opening of a musical and a murder of the leading lady on stage. The plot unfolds as a detective quarantines the cast while looking for clues. Meanwhile the lead is recast and work resumes to overcome the pitiful reviews the show received. Through the course of the show the detective falls in love with a chorus girl, solves the murder, and fixes the musical. The tony award winning show is full of fantastic music, audience-pleasing dance, hilarious jokes, and intriguing mystery. More information can be found on the above website.

Dearborn Heights Civic Theatre Will be holding auditions for it's spring musical, Godspell February 15 & 16th at the Berwyn Center located at 26155 Richardson, Dearborn Heights. The structure of the musical is that of a series of parables, based on the Gospel of Matthew The play is directed by Marc Walentowicz, Music Directed by Brian Londrow Choreographed by Laura Tyler and Produced by Stanley Guarnelo. There are roles for 10 actors. All roles are open to men and women including Jesus. Please note that in the character description, once cast, the name of the character will change to that of the actor. The Characters are as follows: Jesus: Most charismatic individual in the cast. High energy, charming, funny, gentle but with strength. The sort others instinctively follow. John The Baptist/Judas: Has attributes of both biblical figures. He is both Jesus's lieutinant and most ardent disciple and the doubter who begins to question and rebel. The most serious and intellectual of the group , though as with all actors, they must possess a good sense of physical comedy. Jeffrey: Very high energy. Impish & playful Lamar: Not the brightest of the bunch, they are a little slow on the uptake. But there is sweetness and innocence about them. Herb: The comedian, the class clown. The person who can do a hundred voices and imitations. Robin: A bit of a tomboy, but basically open and sweet. Joanne: The confident one, the show off. The first one to volunteer, sometimes they jump in before they really understand whats going on. Peggy: The shy one. Sometimes a little slow to get things, but when they do, they commit all the way. Has an “earth mother” kind of warmth to them. Sonia: Sassy & slitly cynical, the most urban of the group. Also the “sexy” one, but their sexiness contains a large element of put-on, in the manner of Madonna or Mae West. Gilmer: The other class clown. Goofy and a cut-up. All roles appear on stage for the entire duration of the show. Be prepared for several cold readings from the script, a small dance audition, and to sing something of your choice acappela. An accompanyist will also be available if desired (please bring proper sheet music). Pick a song that best showcases your vocal abilities. The dates of the show are April 16, 17, 23 & 24

    CastingInfo

    "Rasa" is a play about a female golem. A modern fairy tale, it explores how the ancient legend of the golem – a creature sculpted out of clay and brought to life by the secret name of God – can become a venue for exploring what it means to be human in an age in which technology is expanding the boundaries of our ideas on this question. As the play begins, the world is in crisis because women have been delivering babies who die within 24 hours after birth. Bioengineer Philip Galway has been developing artificial wombs as a remedy, but needs an uncontaminated womb in order to test his new retroviral vaccine. His ex-wife, Shuri Mayim, a biotechnologist has agreed to work with their close friend Nelson Nxengu in order to create a pregnant golem whose womb will provide the necessary endometrial cells for his artificial wombs. Philip mocks and disparages Shuri’s creation of Beth, a biobot (combination plant-computer) programmed to assist in overseeing Rasa’s pregnancy. Their enmity heightens the tension as Rasa struggles to successfully complete her mission to deliver a healthy baby as progenitor for the human race. When Rasa discovers that, as a golem, she has no soul, everything comes to a standstill. She demands to be given what she calls a “soul voice.” If they don’t comply, she will refuse to complete her task. They must race against time in order to fulfill her impossible wish to be reclassified as “human” rather than “golem.” This play's premiere will be a one-night only, staged reading (with costumes, sets, lighting, sound) directed by the playwright. Original music will be composed by Ben Cohen. Auditions are being held far in advance of the August performance in order to allow sufficient time for costume construction. There will be 6 - 7 evening rehearsals between Sunday, July 25 and Monday, August 3, with a dress rehearsal on Wednesday, Aug. 4, and the performance on Aug. 5. We prefer actors to have no conflicts during this period. Characters: Rasa (young woman) A "golem", born pregnant. Should be able to sing. Shuri (middle-aged woman) Scientist, earth mother type. Ex-wife of Philip. Should be able to sing. Beth (young woman) A "biopot" (plant computer). Should be able to sing. Philip (middle-aged man) Ex-husband of Shuri and a scientist to the core. Nelson (middle-aged man, South African) Environmentalist, old friend of Shuri and Philip. Harry (young man) Whooping crane. Should be able to "whoop" in a variety of ways. JJ (middle-aged woman) Media mogul. Glamorous. Girlfriend of Philip. Auditions will consist of cold readings, but if you already have a monologue prepared, we may ask you to perform it too. Please bring a headshot (or any photo) and a resume if available. The script is available (as a PDF) upon request.

Auditioners should bring a headshot and resume as well as a list of conflicts CLUB MOROCCO is a high-flying, nosebleed, swing-music musical, a celebration of the sounds and the style of a by-gone era, a live film-noir in which the audience play the extras. SYNOPSIS: The action all takes place in a ‘40’s-style club--“an oasis of smooth in a jagged town of broken dreams…where the swing is red-hot, the beauty dangerous, and the luck as fleeting as the love.” The heat at the core of the evening’s entertainment is provided by Zoot-suited bandleader Chick Valentine and his onstage band, The Swing Street All-Stars. A motley crew of “killers, grifters, con-men and thieves”, the All-Stars are “the hottest bunch of hep-cats around”, who work their horns “like there’s nothing left to lose.” The club features its own cast of singers and dancers, including the dashing tenor, Bobby LaRue, the headliner/diva, Miss Velvet St. Regis, and the tap-dancing brothers, Butch and Slick Wannabe. Gangster Torch Tangier, the club’s owner, considers it his mission to make his audience “forget about the world outside—tonight, the only world that exists is right here—at The Club Morocco.” And, throughout the evening, the audience is invited and encouraged to dance onstage to some of the greatest music of the twentieth century—Glenn Miller, Louis Prima, Cole Porter, Irving Berlin, etc. The only fly in the ointment is hard-boiled private eye, Frank McCann. Harboring a terrible secret, he’s returned for one last night to the Club Morocco—“the one place in this whole stinking world where everything wrong and everything right about my life collided.” He’s come to exact revenge, seek redemption, and maybe—if he’s lucky—rekindle a lost flame. Too bad for him--the object of his affection, love-shy torch-singer Nugget Rialto, has ideas of her own. CLUB MOROCCO—you’ll come for the mystery, the romance, the champagne. You’ll stay for the swing, because-- “Once you’ve had the taste, you never lose the hunger.” Auditions will take place at The Encore on January 31, 2010 from 10 am to 1 pm BY APPOINTMENT ONLY.

    CastingInfo

    Roles for 5 women who will age from their late 40s to about 72 in the four scenes. It's a great show, kind of Steel Magnolias meets the Golden Girls... SYNOPSIS: Five Southern women, whose friendships began many years ago on their college swim team, set aside a long weekend every August to recharge those relationships. Free from husbands, kids and jobs, they meet at the same beach cottage on North Carolina’s Outer Banks to catch up, laugh and meddle in each other’s lives. “The Dixie Swim Club” focuses on four of those weekends and spans a period of thirty-three years. Sheree, the spunky team captain, desperately tries to maintain her organized and ‘perfect’ life, and continues to be the group’s leader. Dinah, the wise-cracking overachiever, is a career dynamo. But her victories in the courtroom are in stark contrast to the frustrations of her personal life. Lexie, pampered and outspoken, is determined to hold on to her looks and youth as long as possible. She enjoys being married – over and over and over again. The self-deprecating and acerbic Vernadette, acutely aware of the dark cloud that hovers over her life, has decided to just give in and embrace the chaos. And sweet, eager-to-please Jeri Neal experiences a late entry into motherhood that takes them all by surprise. As their lives unfold and the years pass, these women increasingly rely on one another, through advice and raucous repartee, to get through the challenges (men, sex, marriage, parenting, divorce, aging) that life flings at them. And when fate throws a wrench into one of their lives in the second act, these friends, proving the enduring power of ‘teamwork’, rally ‘round their own with the strength and love that takes this comedy in a poignant and surprising direction. “The Dixie Swim Club” is the story of these five unforgettable women - a hilarious and touching comedy about friendships that last forever…

    An affectionate paean to small town, U.S.A. of a bygone era, Meredith Willson’s The Music Man follows fast-talking traveling salesman Harold Hill as he cons the people of River City, Iowa into buying instruments and uniforms for a boys’ band he vows to organize – this despite the fact he doesn’t know a trombone from a treble clef. Harold’s plans to skip town with the cash are foiled when he falls for Marian the librarian, who transforms him into a respectable citizen by curtain’s fall. We are looking for a cast of about 65 of all ages and encourage you to come on out and audition!

You can also read the entire script (recommended!) online at http://members.fortunecity.com/bookdepository/plays/black/comedy.html CAST NEEDED: 5 Men and 3 Women - Ages 17-60 to play ages 20’s-60 REHEARSALS will begin Monday, February 1st. Once the cast is chosen, we will determine if rehearsals will be held in the afternoon or evening. Rehearsal possibilities are: Monday through Thursday afternoons or evenings and Saturdays, 11am-3pm. You will receive a rehearsal schedule at LEAST one week in advance. No conflicts with rehearsals will be allowed beginning March 20. Auditions are for age 17 and older. Community members welcome. You do not have to be a student to participate. This play is a BRITISH FARCE. Most roles require British accents. Two require German accents. Cast of Characters BRINDSLEY MILLER: A young sculptor (mid twenties), intelligent and attractive, but nervous and uncertain of himself. CAROL MELKETT: His fiancé. A young debutante; very pretty, very spoiled; very silly. Her sound is that unmistakable, terrifying deb quack. MISS FURNIVAL: A middle-aged lady. Prissy and refined. Clad in the blouse and sack skirt of her gentility, her hair in a bun, her voice in a bun, she reveals only the repressed gestures of the middle-class spinster - until alcohol undoes her. COLONEL MELKETT: CAROL's commanding father. Brisk, barky, yet given to sudden vocal calms which suggest a deep and alarming instability. It is not only the constant darkness which gives him his look of wide-eyed suspicion. HAROLD GORRINGE: The bachelor owner of an antique-china shop, and BRINDSLEY's neighbor, HAROLD comes from the North of England. His friendship is highly conditional and possessive: sooner or later, payment for it will be asked. A specialist in emotional blackmail, he can become hysterical when slighted, or (as inevitably happens) rejected. He is older than BRINDSLEY by several years. SCHUPPANZIGH: A German refugee, chubby, cultivated, and effervescent. He is an entirely happy man, delighted to be in England, even if this means being employed full time by the London Electricity Board. CLEA: BRINDSLEY's ex-mistress. Mid-twenties; dazzling, emotional, bright and mischievous. The challenge to her to create a dramatic situation out of the darkness is ultimately irresistible. GEORG BAMBERGER: An elderly millionaire art collector, easily identifiable as such. Like the Electrician, he is a German.

    CastingInfo

    The Chelsea Center for the Arts and Michigan Pops Choir host seven community parties featuring dancing, games, and local performers at the historic Chelsea Depot. The Chelsea Depot is a charming old renovated train station often rented out for community activities, parties, and small concerts, and, in this case, a series of community parties-with-performers. It holds about 200 people. There is no "stage" per se, no "lighting", nothing technical -- this party-and-performance series is being done simply and cheaply, as a nonprofit community service, to build community connections, community camaraderie, and an appreciation and awareness of local talent (and just to have big fun, you bet). There is no funding to speak of behind "Cabaret Chelsea", and we are not in a position to offer compensation to any performer in 2010 -- all performers must perform for love, joy, to be part of the fun, and tips (at best). We held have already held one audition, on 11/16, and got lots of interest. We are now nearly full for the 1/22 party and half-full for the 2/6 party. But given that each party is four hours long, we have lots of room, especially for the six parties after 1/22/2010. We are looking for both musicians (singers, bands, instrumentalists) and non-musical performers. We are ESPECIALLY interested in auditions or indications of interest to do: * Skits or short one act plays * Improv (similar to or directly borrowing from "Whose Line Is It") * Story telling * Poetry readings, poetry slam-style * Small dance groups: ballet, "old world" or folk traditional, modern, jazz, burlesque, belly -- pretty much any style, but for no more than about eight people (and note that, again, there's no stage, it will be crowded, and the floor is, unfortunately, carpeted) * Stand-up comedians * Puppeteers * Ballroom demonstration/teaching dancers * Line dance leaders We are also looking for a big, funny, friendly personality to be the MC for each party. (Think Jim Broadbent as Harold Zidler in "Moulin Rouge", *not* Joel Gray in "Cabaret".) The audition process is simple: show-up at the Chelsea Center for the Arts, fill out a form, and show your quality. NOTHING IS PROVIDED other than a room, a piano, and a boom box-style CD player (for singers or dancers with recorded music). If you can't make these auditions but feel you CAN demonstrate your artistic chops via MySpace video clips or some such, message jeff@prenevost.com and plead your case. If offered a performance slot in a party, you will need to attend one full "dress rehearsal" at the Depot on the Tuesday evening prior to the party. Also expect to be asked to help with production crap (room setup and strike, for instance). Each show is on a theme. We're not fascist about adherence-to-the-theme, but it's excellent, effective, and more fun if artists get in the spirit for each: 1/22: "The Cool Party": urban, night club, night life, jazz club, dance hall, speakeasy. 2/6: "The Love Party": romance, love, sex, and marriage, sincere to comedic. 3/6: "The Irish Party": self-explanatory, begorrah. 5/1: "The Party of Life": springtime, sunshine, flowers, youth, the 60's. 8/28: "The Hot Party": Latin-inflected celebration of summer and heat, broadly defined. Rhumba! Salsa! 10/30: "The Party of Death": for, obviously, Halloween, but with a more interesting adult take, eerie-and-spiritual rather than typical monsters-and-masks. 12/31: "The Holiday Spectacular Spectacular": a big ol' classic holiday shindig to culminate the year.

    SUGGESTIONS FOR AUDITION: If possible, prepare something ahead of time. Find a speech, poem, song, anything you like, only 30 seconds long! (Don’t bring in something long to do.) Memorize it, practice it over and over, OUT LOUD so your mouth can chomp-out those words. Pronounce all the Ds & Ts. Try some goofy “actor stuff”—pretend it’s an English duke, French maid, Spanish bullfighter, or ANY accent! Have fun, be goofy, make it funny, make it loud! AT AUDITIONS: Bring your practiced speech or any audition piece you know. We’ll also have little speeches to read from the show, maybe a song, and some improvisation. Dress loose for movement, wear “play shoes,” plan on spending the whole two hours. PLEASE SEE OUR WEBSITE FOR MORE INFORMATION: WWW.YPSIYOUTHTHEATRE.ORG

    CastingInfo

    The Encore Musical Theatre Company is pleased to announce auditions for their upcoming production of Andrew Lloyd Webber's Jesus Christ Superstar directed by Dan Cooney (Broadway's 9 to 5 The Musical and Les Miserables). It seems especially fitting that the first rock opera, created as a concept album at the end of the turbulent '60s, should have at its center a social and political rebel. Jesus' meteor-like rise in renown provides, as the title suggests, a parallel to contemporary celebrity worship. As his radical teachings are evermore embraced, Judas increasingly questions the enlightened motives of this new prophet, resulting in betrayal. Christ's final days are dramatized with emotional intensity, thought-provoking edge and explosive theatricality. Propelled by a stirring score, by turns driving and majestic, satirical and tender, JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR illuminates the transcendent power of the human spirit with a passion that goes straight to the heart. Auditions will take place January 10 from noon to 3pm BY APPOINTMENT ONLY in 5 minute time slots. Appointments may be made by calling the box office at (734)268-6200 or by emailing steve@theencoretheatre.org. Callbacks TBD. Please prepare 16 bars from two contrasting musical theatre pieces and bring sheet music in the correct key. Please supply your headshot and resume stapled together as well as a list of ALL CONFLICTS. Conflicts will be a deciding factor in casting. Rehearsals will begin on March 1. Rehearsals take place Monday through Friday from 6 to 10pm and Saturdays from noon to 6pm. There will be one tech rehearsal on Saturday, March 27 from noon to midnight with one two hour dinner break. Performances run from April 1st to April 18th with a possible extension through April 25. Performances take place Thursdays at 7, Fridays at 8, Saturdays at 3 and 8, and Sundays at 3. Call time is 45 minutes before the show. There will be NO performance on Easter Sunday, and one Thursday matinee on April 8 at 3pm. **SEEKING NON-EQUITY ACTORS ONLY** Roles available: Mary Magdalene - female, mezzo, 18 - 30, Mary is a former prostitute who has joined the band of apostles and serves Jesus. In fact, her attraction to him is more than platonic; it is also the same kind of physical attraction with which she is very familiar, and yet, the combination of these attractions, along with her awe of this holy man, make her afraid of her own feelings. MUST BE A SOULFUL SINGER, SEEKING AN ACTRESS OF ETHNIC DECENT (ASIAN, LATINA, OR AFRICAN AMERICAN). Pontius Pilate - male, baritone, 35 - 65, Pilate is the Roman Governor to whom Jesus is first brought for punishment by the Jews, and who refuses to appease the crowd, due at least in part to a dream he has had portending his own incrimination if he does. He defers by sending Jesus on to King Herod instead, on the grounds that only Herod, as King of Galilee, has the authority to condemn a Galilean to death. When the Pharisees’ guards bring Jesus to Pilate for the second time, Pilate reluctantly has the young zealot flogged, as a measure to appease a crowd that could easily turn against him. King Herod - male, tenor, 25 - 65, Herod is a self-indulgent, half-Jewish despot who rules all of Galilee, including its captive Jews. His court consists of a corrupt band of sycophants who serves Herod’s lavish tastes. Herod makes a joke of Christ, as he probably does with any serious aspect of his kingship. Peter - male, tenor, 21 - 35, Peter is a loyal apostle who considers ridiculous Christ’s prediction that he will betray him three times. But he does exactly as Jesus predicts. Some movement required. Simon Zealotes - male, tenor, 21 - 35, Simon’s surname Zealotes comes from the Greek word “zeal,” meaning enthusiastic devotion. It is Simon’s “zealous” goal to urge the Jesus cult to revolt against Rome. Seeking a singer/dancer or singer/mover. Apostles, Priests, wives, lepers, tormentors, merchants and reporters - male and female, all voice types, all ages, to play Jesus' apostles and priests as well as various other roles. Dancing a plus. Soul Girls - female, all voice types, 20 - 40, to play "Angels" in the title number of the show. Dancing a plus. Non-equity actors are un-paid at this time. The Encore is a new theatre company entering it's second season. The Encore features Equity actors from Michigan and New York, often Broadway credited, with local non-Equity talent together on the same stage.

    CastingInfo

    This production will be done as a collaborative adaption with the cast, playwright, musicians, designers, and director. The final product will most likely end up as something very different than both the original Wedekind and the musical—something uniquely our own that is perhaps only inspired by the Wedekind. The cast will consist of 6 actors, 4 men and 2 women. Actors must be over 18 but should be able to portray characters in their teens. Auditions will be to cast a company of actors that will be assigned roles later in the workshop process. Actors should expect a lengthy but not time consuming process. We will meet sporadically for several months in order to discuss the piece, workshop some scenes, perhaps do some free writing, etc. Performances are tentatively scheduled for be June 20-23, 2010 Please note: Scheduling conflicts are to be expected for the next several months. Please do not let them discourage you from auditioning. The rehearsal schedule will not at all be consistant and will be coordinated with the schedules of all involved. The bulk of the rehearsals will take place in June. Auditions will be by appointment only on Sunday, January 10, Monday, January 11, Tuesday, January 12, and Wednesday, January 13. Please email keithpaulmedelis@yahoo.com in order to set up an audition. Please prepare one dramatic monologue, contemporary or classical will do. If you sing, a little song may be nice. No accompaniment will be provided. Also expect a brief interview at the audition. Callbacks are possible at a later date. There is no pay for the project. Non-Equity only.

    CastingInfo

    Barefoot in the Park was Simon’s longest running show on Broadway and is adored by audiences of all ages. The production requires good comedic timing and acute recognition of the one-liners. A delicate balance between theatre and real-life is needed. The simplicity of the humor speaks for itself. A memory play, the script of Barefoot in the Park is a salute to Simon’s first wife and their first apartment. This romantic comedy focuses on two newlyweds, Corie and Paul Bratter, as they begin married life in a tiny 5th floor walk-up apartment in a mid-Manhattan brownstone. Paul is a straight-laced attorney, Corie a far more spontaneous free spirit. The young couple must contend with a lack of heat, a skylight that leaks snow, several long flights of stairs, oddball neighbor Victor Velasco, and Corie's well-meaning mother. It is full of wide-eyed, good-willed romanticism. CHARACTER DESCRIPTION: Corie Bratter (Age 21-32): a wild, free spirit whose idea of a good time is to run barefoot in the park in the dead of winter; her first desire is to make her new hubby a happy home. Paul Bratter (Age 24-33): a fledgling lawyer dealing with the broken-down obstacle course that is his Greenwich Village apartment while trying to adjust to his newly married status. Mrs. Ethyl Banks (Age 44-56): Corie’s well-meaning mother; a shy, delicate frump in need of sexual awakening. Victor Velasco (Age 45-65): oddball neighbor to the Bratters; a lively, bohemian womanizer. Telephone Man (Age 38-55): empathetic repair man who offers poignant advice to the new bride. Delivery Man (Age 50-70): a cameo role which emphasizes the hilarity of the minuscule, fifth-floor walkup apartment in downtown-Manhattan. PHOTO AND RESUME: Please bring a non-returnable photo and a resume. Those auditioning are required to have a photo for the audition. If you do not bring one with you, Spotlight Players will take one for $1.00 to cover photo costs. Everyone who is cast must become a paid member of Spotlight Players before the first read-through or the role will be recast. Membership dues are $25 per cast member per year (June 1 to May 31).

    The Encore Musical Theatre Company will be holding open auditions for their next production, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee directed by Dan Cooney, choreographed by Barbara F. Cullen and music directed by CT Hollings. Auditions will take place at The Encore Musical Theatre at 3126 Broad St. Dexter MI, 48130 on Monday, November 30 at 7pm and Tuesday, December 1 at 7pm. Sign in will begin at 6:30 pm. All actors wishing to audition must be signed in no later than 8pm. Equity actors will be seen first. Callbacks are TBA , but will most likely take place the week of December 28. The Encore currently utilizes three Special Appearance Tier II Contracts. Non-equity actors are not paid at this time. Please prepare 16 bars of a comedic musical theatre piece and bring a headshot and resume stapled together as well as a list of conflicts from January 4 through February 21. Conflicts will be a deciding factor in casting. Rehearsals will take place for four weeks only beginning January 4. Rehearsals take place Mondays through Fridays from 6pm to 10pm and Saturdays noon to 6pm. There will be one 12 hour tech day on Saturday, January 30 from noon to midnight with a 2 hour dinner break. The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee opens on February 4 and closes February 21. Performances take place Thursdays at 7pm, Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm, and Saturdays and Sundays at 3pm. There will be one Thursday matinee on February 11 at 3pm and one Sunday evening performance on February 14 at 7pm. Seeking Equity and non-Equity actors for the following roles: NOTE: Though the spellers are children, they are played by adult actors. The Spellers: Chip Tolentino – The reigning spelling champion of Putnam County, relatively athletic and social, he expects things to come easily to him. Lately though, he’s been going through some weird changes, and things are slipping out of his control. This actor also plays Jesus. Tenor. Logainne Schwartzandgrubenniere – Younger than most bee participants, she is driven by internal and external pressure – but above all by a desire to win to make her two fathers (from whom she takes her combined last name) proud. She lisps, is a little uncomfortable in her body, has some tics, but still manages to strike a strong presence with her political awareness and keen sense of justice. Having drilled words for hours a day, she is aware of everything that passes in the room. Mezzo. Leaf Coneybear – A second alternate, he never expected to compete. Home-schooled with his many siblings, everything about this public bee is an adventure for him, from meeting the other kids to showing off his homemade clothing, to each moment of unexpected attention. He may have severe Attention Deficit Disorder but delights in his own wandering focus. Leaf doesn’t expect to win – or even to spell one word correctly – but he finds absolutely everything incredibly amusing. His mother has made him wear his protective helmet to the bee. This actor also plays Logainne’s Dad, Carl. Tenor. William Barfee – Has a host of health problems and a lot to prove. Loud and combative as a defensive posture, his is the fat kid who becomes a bully to avoid being picked on (though he often gets picked on anyway so gets into a lot of fights). His parents are divorced, his father remarried to a much younger woman; and William does not expect kindness from anyone but his mother. So friendship takes him by surprise. Still, he’s noticed on the spelling circuit for his remarkable technique – spelling words out on the floor with his foot. Taken out of competition last year because of an ill-timed allergic reaction, he’s here for vindication. The journey he doesn’t expect is one of coming to care about someone else – when he sees outside his own needs for perhaps the first time, it shakes him fundamentally. Tenor. Marcy Park – The ultimate over-achiever, Marcy has never been given another option. She comes from a family where excellence is expected and so simply produced. A parochial school student, she assumes God, too, expects perfection. She sees herself as a mass of problems but she keeps them to herself. Having moved often because of her parents’ work, she knows she can beat the local competition. Her many talents include piano, dance, martial arts, baton twirling, and/or whatever special gifts the actress playing her possesses. Mezzo. Seeking an Asian actress. Olive Ostrovsky – A word lover, Olive has a fairly quiet life. An only child with often-absent parents, Olive spends a lot of her time alone. She fills some of that time reading the dictionary – the words bring her comfort, as does the idea of the vastness of the world the book contains. During the first half of the bee, she often peers into the audience to see if her father, who is delayed at work, has made it yet. She starts enormously shy, and shyly blossoms. Mezzo. The Adults: Rona Lisa Perretti – Putnam’s long-time spelling bee hostess, a local realtor, and third annual Putnam County spelling champion. This is Rona’s day to be queen. From her perspective she keeps the bee running smoothly, upholds protocol, and conveys crucial information to the audience. Her interest in the competition is unflagging and drives it forward. She thinks of this as a complex, cerebral sporting event, and she wants the audience to understand every twist and turn. If anything, in her life in general, she has to minimize the importance of this event to her, embarrassed that her own championship moment remains such a highlight. A little concerned when the substitute word pronouncer arrives, she knows she has to step up her game to make the day a success. This actor also plays Olive’s Mom in fantasy. Age 30 to 40. Mezzo. Vice Principal Douglas Panch – of Lake Hemmingway Dos Passos Junior High is frustrated with his life. He fell into education, less out of love than a general ability uncoupled to a particular passion. The drive of the young spellers is alien to him. He never found anything that important. Stuck in his current job, endlessly awaiting a promotion that isn’t coming, he was not happy to get the call this morning that he was needed to substitute; but he starts the bee eager to do well, to redeem himself for past mistakes, and to impress the local hostess, Rona Lisa, who impressed him long ago. Age 40 to 55. Baritone. Mitch Mahoney – With a bouncer’s physique and demeanor, Mitch appears an odd choice to be the bee’s “comfort counselor,” but it’s part of his community service assignment. The outsider, who in a way gets to inhabit the audience perspective, he wonders about the wisdom of putting the kids through this at all. He has no idea how to offer comfort, but does increasingly find himself wishing he could find a way to make the kids feel better about losing, and perhaps place misspelling in wider perspective. This actor also plays Logainne’s Dad, Dan and Olive’s Dad. Age 25 to 35. Tenor. Seeking an African American actor. The Encore Musical Theatre Company is a semi-professional theatre Company featuring Equity and Non-Equity actors. Previous productions at The Encore have featured Broadway actors with credits such as Beauty and the Beast, Wicked, Les Miserables and 9 to 5 The Musical. Our goal is to provide Broadway caliber Musical Theatre. We are seeking Equity and non-Equity actors who are professional and dedicated to helping us achieve that goal.

    CastingInfo

    Information for Directors – A2CT’s 2010-11 Mainstage Season The Ann Arbor Civic Theatre (A2CT) Play Selection Committee is now accepting applications to direct for the 2010-11 mainstage season. The following information is being provided for your assistance in the development of your proposal. The season will begin in September 2010 and end in June 2011. If you are interested in directing a production for Studio Series or Junior Theatre, please contact Cassie Mann at cmann@a2ct.org. PROCESS: To help the committee develop a balanced season, the committee will be using a three-phase application review process. INITIAL PROPOSALS: The first phase will require director applicants to submit a resume, a list of references, and no more than three preliminary proposals for works they are interested in directing. Upon review of the preliminary proposals, the committee chairperson will notify selected applicants to request more detailed proposals for one or two of the initial plays proposed. The committee reserves the right to ask directors to consider alternative play selections in order to better round out a season. Please visit the Ann Arbor Civic Theatre website to download a copy of the initial proposal application. FULL PROPOSALS: In the second phase of the process, selected applicants will be asked to submit more detailed proposals for one or more of the preliminary proposals. In addition to each proposal, applicants must submit a (paper or electronic) copy of the script that has been clearly annotated in any place the director plans on making changes. If the submission is a musical, a (CD or electronic) copy of the soundtrack should also be provided. Scripts and music should be submitted as soon as possible after a full proposal has been requested to allow the committee time to thoroughly review the material. Upon review of the full proposals, a committee chairperson will notify all applicants, and schedule interviews with selected applicants. INTERVIEWS: In the third phase of the process, the entire committee will interview each selected applicant. After all applicants have been interviewed, the committee will meet in a closed session to select the season. The committee will recommend a season to the Ann Arbor Civic Theatre Board in February. After the board has approved a season, all applicants will be notified of the final season selections. Should an applicant be chosen to direct, he/she will be expected to fulfill all obligations. SELECTION CRITERIA: Venue Considerations: The Ann Arbor Civic Theatre main-stage season includes six productions, typically three musicals and three plays. A2CT will be using two theaters, the Lydia Mendelssohn Theater and the Arthur Miller Theatre at the University of Michigan. For the 2010-11 season, we have secured dates at Mendelssohn for September & November, 2010 and January & June, 2011. We have requested dates at the Arthur Miller Theatre for March and May of 2011. The most likely scenario for the upcoming season will be to have musicals at the Mendelssohn in September, January, and June; and one non-musical in November at Mendelssohn and non-musicals in March and May at the Arthur Miller Theatre. While not set in stone, there are many reasons (financial, patronage, etc) why the breakdown is likely to happen in this manner. The Arthur Miller Theatre is a reconfigurable theatre that has two configurations, thrust or proscenium. The configuration of the theatre is dictated by the University of Michigan, and will be unknown to A2CT until after the selection process has been completed. Because of this, any director that will be using the Arthur Miller Theatre must be willing to use either configuration. PLAY SELECTION CONSIDERATIONS: The committee is intent on helping A2CT as it continues to strengthen its organization, audience and participants. In order to help A2CT achieve these goals, the committee is actively trying to determine ways of attracting a wider demographic audience than we have in the past. The committee believes that it is important to provide plays that are easily recognizable to audiences that provide opportunities to attract new actors, designers and technical staff while achieving a balance across the entire season. As you weigh your options regarding potential play selections, please consider shows that have recognizable titles, gender balance, engaging scripts and manageable production goals. Your play considerations could include a classic or modern comedy or drama, a mystery or thriller, large-scale musicals, etc. As always, the Play Selection Committee will keep the play selection process as fair as possible. That said: the ultimate charge to the committee is to recommend the best season for Ann Arbor Civic Theatre. The intention of the committee is to follow everything outlined in this document however if a case arises that causes the committee to alter procedure, the committee will make every attempt to extend the change to all prospective directors. If at any point in the process you have questions, comments or complaints regarding the process, please feel free to contact the chair of the committee, the A2CT office or the President of the Board of Directors. TIMELINE: November 9, 2009 (4:00pm) – The initial proposal submissions are due via e-mail to manager@a2ct.org. If there are technical difficulties and you are not able to submit a complete initial proposal application within the established timeline, submit a proposal anyway and indicate on the application form the issue(s) that are preventing you from completing your submission. November 2009 – Directors will be contacted. Some will be asked to create full proposals. Those directors not asked to submit full proposals will also receive feedback from the committee chairperson. December 4, 2009 – Full proposals are due. January 23 and 24, 2010 – Interviews take place. Director interviews will be scheduled for the directors whose full proposals have been selected. February 2010 – Committee recommendations for the 2010-11 season will be made to the Ann Arbor Civic Theatre Board of Directors. Upon approval by the board of directors, all prospective directors will be contacted regarding the selected season. If you have any questions concerning the process or if you need assistance please contact Cassie Mann (cmann@a2ct.org, 734-971-2228) at the Ann Arbor Civic Theatre office or Committee Chair David Beaulieu at moviebuff153@yahoo.com

A Type of Musical,” a one-act show written by local authors about the adventures of several computer typefaces that find meaning in their lives. “FONTS!” will be the New Year fundraiser for Spotlight Players, the resident adult theater group at the Village Theater at Cherry Hill. Three Spotlight regulars have penned this unusual and entertaining show, Tim Chanko, Linda Pohl and Christopher Tremblay. In “FONTS!” the characters explore cyberspace, interacting with other fonts and learning that there is a lot more to life than they originally thought. Auditions are November 3 and 4. Registration is at 6:45 pm with auditions starting at 7 pm at the Village Theater at Cherry Hill. Minimum age for casting is 15 years old. Script/music selections from the show to be provided. For character descriptions and to preview the song selections, visit our website at http://fontsamusical.wordpress.com/ Show dates are: January 22, 23, 24, 2010 (Friday and Saturday at 8pm and Sunday at 2pm.) “FONTS!” is a family friendly show and will be performed as a “black box” production in the Biltmore Studio at the Village Theater. Tremblay: “This show takes things from everyday life and personifies them in a fun, creative and entertaining way. You'll never look at the fonts the same way." This is the second local production that Chanko, Pohl and Tremblay have been a part of. In January 2008, "Behind the Curtain" was staged and was written by Chanko and Pohl. Spotlight Players is the resident adult theater group at the Village Theater at Cherry Hill. Formerly the Plymouth Theater Guild, Spotlight Players is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization and has been part of the community for 65 years.

UMGASS is currently seeking a talented cast - and an enthusiastic audience! - for its fall show, Patience. In Patience (or Bunthorne's Bride), two rival poets attract the attention of the young ladies of a village, who had previously been engaged to the members of a cavalry regiment. The poets are both in love with Patience, the village milkmaid. Patience detests one poet, but feels it is her duty to avoid the one she loves. Complications and hilarity ensue.

In short order, he's attending a clothing-optional Bohemian school, putting to bed Mame's hard partying friend, actress Vera Charles, and learning to mix a perfect martini. None of this sits well with Dwight Babacock, his father's executor, who spirits him away to a boarding school. Mame loses 'big time' in the 1929 crash. Things look bleak until she finds love and marries, only to be widowed a year later. Meanwhile, Patrick is growing up in a succession of boarding schools, and his visits to Auntie Mame become sporadic as he begins spending more vacation time with 'Uncle Dwight.' As Mame watches her young nephew grow into a man she knows she must rescue him from the stuffy, conventional lifestyle in which he is heading. Her motto: "Life is a banquet and most poor suckers are starving to dealth!." Mame's appetite for life ensures that when she's done, she won't leave behind a single crumb of missed experience or an ounce of regret.

I am submitting the play for production throughout the country, but October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and although the play is more about the human condition, it MUST be performed then for sure. The five women have unique and fun characteristics; I can and will send you a synopsis, character breakdown, selected songs and the script electronically. Thank you for your interest!

    Six young people in the the throes of puberty, overseen by grown-ups who barely managed to escape childhood themselves, learn that winning isn't everything and that losing doesn't necessarily make you a loser.

The show's Tony Award winning creative team has created the unlikeliest of hit musicals about the unlikeliest of heroes: a quirky yet charming cast of outsiders for whom a spelling bee is the one place where they can stand out and fit in at the same time. **Please prepare a song from the show for the character you wish to audition for. "Karaoke CDs" are OK; piano player will be there. Cold reading from the script and improv activities as well. Dress to move. **This is not a children's production.

    The Encore Musical Theatre Company is proud to announce auditions for their upcoming Halloween musical, Sweeney Todd, The Demon Barber of Fleet Street by Stephen Sondheim. AUDITION INFO Auditions will take place August 17 and 18 at 7 pm. Sign in will begin at 6:30 pm. All actors wishing to audition must be signed in by 8 pm.

The Encore uses three Equity Special Appearance Tier II contracts. Non-equity actors are not paid at this time. Equity actors will be seen first. ABOUT THE SHOW The rare instance of a musical thriller, Stephen Sondheim and Hugh Wheeler’s chilling, suspenseful, heart-pounding masterpiece of murderous barber-ism and culinary crime tells the infamous tale of the unjustly exiled barber who returns to 19th century London seeking revenge against the lecherous judge who framed him and ravaged his young wife. His thirst for blood soon expands to include his unfortunate customers, and the resourceful proprietress of the pie shop downstairs soon has the people of London lining up in droves with her mysterious new meat pie recipe! Sophisticated, macabre, visceral and uncompromising, “Sweeney Todd” nevertheless has a great sense of fun, mixing intense drama with howlingly funny moments of dark humor: audiences find themselves laughing hysterically one moment and gasping in surprise the next.

    Oklahoma Auditions The Encore Musical Theatre Company is happy to announce our upcoming auditions for the musical classic Oklahoma! Auditions will take place June 16 & 17 at 7 pm at The Encore Musical Theatre Company located at 3126 Broad Street, Dexter, Michigan, 48130. Sign in will begin at 6:30 and all actors wishing to audition must be signed in by 8 pm. Please bring a headshot and resume if available. Please prepare a chorus and a verse from two contrasting pieces (ex. one ballad, one up-tempo), preferably from classical musical theatre (Rodgers and Hammerstein, Lerner and Lowe, etc.). An accompanist will be provided. Callbacks will take place the week of June 22. ABOUT THE SHOW Rodgers & Hammerstein's first collaboration remains, in many ways, their most innovative, having set the standards and established the rules of musical theatre still being followed today. Set in a Western Indian territory just after the turn of the century, the high-spirited rivalry between the local farmers and cowboys provides the colorful background against which Curly, a handsome cowboy, and Laurey, a winsome farm girl, play out their love story. Although the road to true love never runs smooth, with these two headstrong romantics holding the reins, love's journey is as bumpy as a surrey ride down a country road. That they will succeed in making a new life together we have no doubt, and that this new life will begin in a brand-new state provides the ultimate climax to the triumphant OKLAHOMA! CAST OF CHARACTERS Curly - A proud and handsome ranch hand who loves Laurey. Baritone, age 22-33. Laurey - Eller's stubborn and beautiful niece who loves Curly. Very independent. Soprano, age 18-25.

He lusts after Laurey. Sullen, mysterious and dangerous. Baritone, age 27 – 40. Ado Annie - A slightly promiscuous, flirt who cannot say no to men's advances. Ditzy and gullible. Soprano, age 18 – 25. Will Parker - A happy but simple fellow who is in love with Ado Annie. Not overly bright. Intense Dancing. Tenor, age 25 – 35. Ali Hakim - A wily Persian peddler. Has an unusual accent. Little to no singing. Age 28 – 45. Andrew Carnes - Ado Annie's father. Very protective of her reputation and very much wants to get her married off. Tenor, age 50 – 65. Adult Ensemble – will play various cameo roles, Gertie Cummings, Ike Skidmore, Fred, Cord Elam, cowboys, farmers, and farmers daughters. Ages range from 15 to 65.

    CastingInfo

    UMGASS is accepting petitions for all prod staff positions for the upcoming productions of Patience (Fall 2009) and Gondoliers (Spring 2010) as well as for our Pretty Committee (Outreach Group). UMGASS is the oldest student-run Gilbert and Sullivan Society in North America and is based at the University of Michigan. Both community members and students may audition or participate in all aspects of the production. Please refer to the UMGASS website (www.umgass.org) for further company information. Petitioners should submit a letter of intent and a curriculum vitae to umgassexec@umich.edu. Petitioners for Patience are encouraged to contact us by July 1, 2009. As suitable candidates are found, positions may be filled before this date. A submission date for Gondoliers has not yet been set, but petitioners are welcome to contact us as soon as possible. Open Positions include: Music Director Artistic Director Assistant Artistic Director Choreographer Set Designer Technical Director Lighting Designer Costume Designer Graphics Designer Props Makeup and Hair Design Stage Manager In addition, we are looking for local apprentices to be trained to head positions in the future. We have a very dedicated production staff that has been with us for many years, but they need to take shows off from time to time and would love to train the right person to take over their position in the future. This is mostly in reference to Set Designer, Costume Designer and the other artistic committee heads. Please follow the petition process above if you would like to be considered as an apprentice. We are also looking for a Business Manager and Artistic Director for our Pretty Committee, a performing troupe consisting of UMGASS members that does community outreach and performs at community events, meetings/conferences, schools, and nursing facilities. Many of our former Pretty Committee Managers and Directors have gone on to direct UMGASS Shows, and the Pretty Committee has been a good experience for directors that are getting initial experience or are experienced, but want an introduction to UMGASS before they direct an entire show. While the positions perform distinct responsibilities, we often have one individual that takes on both positions. In fact, we prefer this arrangement if possible. If you are interested in this opportunity, please follow the same petition process as above and let us know that you are interested in the Pretty Committee. Useful Dates: Patience: Performance Dates – Dec. 3 – 6, 2009 Mass Meeting: Sun. Sept. 13 Auditions: Mon – Thu. Sept. 14-17 Rehearsals begin: Sun. Sept. 20 Petitions should be submitted by July 1, 2009 Gondoliers: Performance Dates are TBA, however, they will most likely be in the beginning of April.

Physically (would like) a husky man, though must move well; moderate dance requirements. Once a successful Broadway producer who has not lost one bit of his showmanship, finds himself past his prime. He now gets his investments from little old ladies. His character is loud and larger than life; vocally, must be able to sing (baritone/tenor, up to G) Leo Bloom: (male; plays mid to late 30s) timid and geekish very likable. Physically (would like) a slight character actor; the opposite of Max Bialystock. Plays the straight man to Max. Must move well he has moderate dance requirements. Leo is an accountant in a monotonous and uninteresting job who, after meeting Max Bialystock, partners with him and becomes a Broadway producer. Vocally, must be able to sing (baritone/tenor, up to G) Ulla: (female, may be 20s-30s; gorgeous, sexy, voluptuous Swedish secretarial assistant to Bialystock and Bloom the quintessential knock-out; must have comic ability.

Roger DeBris: (male; maybe late 30s to late 40s) great comic timing. Larger than life, elegant, flamboyant and shameless. (We first see Roger in a evening gown and tiara).

Vocally, high baritone/tenor (up tp G, with strong high falsetto) Franz Liebkind: (male; may be 30s to 50s) The crazy author of Bialystock’s producing venture, “Springtime for Hitler.” He actually believes that Hitler was a hero and that he himself served under Hitler as a soldier of the Third Reich. Comedy is vital in this role because of the lines he delivers. Must move well. Prefer actor to audition with German accent. Vocally, baritone (up to G) Chorus: There are several wonderful chorus roles for male and female with varied dance requirement. We need ladies of all ages to fill the roles. There is a wonderful “little old lady” chorus that has a show stopping number. We need males to round out Roger’s entourage. We need show girls for the big dance numbers. Dance requirements will vary. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    ABOUT THE SHOW A down-and out skid row floral assistant becomes an overnight sensation when he discovers an exotic plant with a mysterious craving for fresh blood. Soon “Audrey II” grows into an ill-tempered, foul-mouthed, R&B-singing carnivore who offers him fame and fortune in exchange for feeding its growing appetite, finally revealing itself to be an alien creature poised for global domination! CHARACTER BREAKDOWN Seymour - Mid-twenties and perhaps balding a little. Our insecure, naive, put-upon, florist’s clerk hero. Above all, he’s a sweet and well-meaning little man. He is not a silly, pratfalling nerd, and therefore should not be played as the hero of a Jerry Lewis film. Age 18 - 30. Low A to High G Audrey - The bleached-blond, Billie-Dawn-like, secret love of his life. If you took Judy Holiday, Carol Channing, Mailyn Monroe and Goldie Hawn, removed their education and feelings of self-worth, dressed them in spiked heels and a low-cut black dress, and then shook them all up in a test tube to extract what's sweetest and most vunerable-that'd be Audrey. Age 18 to 35. Low A to High D Voice of Audrey II (The Plant) - Provided by an actor on an offstage microphone. The sound is a cross between Otis Redding, Barry White, and Wolfman Jack. Think of The Voice as that of a street-smart, funky, conniving villain — Rhythm and Blues’ answer to Richard the Third. Any age. Low B to High G. Mr. Mushnik - Their boss. A failure of an East Side florist. His accent, if he has one, is more that of middle class New York than of Eastern Europe. He seldom smiles but often sweats. Age 40 to 70. Low G to High E flat Orin - A tall, dark, handsome dentist with a black leather jacket and sadistic tendencies. He is NOT, however, a leftover from the movie version of GREASE. Think instead of an egotistical pretty-boy — all got up like a greaser but thinking like an insurance salesman and talking like a radio announcer. (This is also the actor who plays A Voice not unlike God's, Wino, Customer, Radio Announcer, Mr. Berstein, Mrs. Luce, Skip Snip, and Patrick Martin.) Age 30 to 45. Baritone. Crystal, Ronnette, and Chiffon - Three black female street urchins who function as participants in the action and a Greek Chorus outside it. They’re young, hip, smart and the only people in the whole cast who REALLY know what’s going on. In their “Greek Chorus” capacity, they occassionally sing to the audience directly. And when they do, it's often with a "secret-smile" that says: "we know something you don't know." Ages 16 to 35. Belters. ABOUT THE ENCORE The Encore is Michigan's newest non-profit, professional theatre company. The theatre employs equity actors from Michigan and often times Broadway credited actors from New York. We also offer non-paying roles to local non-equity actors. Directors and choreographers at The Encore are professionally credited as well. The show will rehearse Monday through Friday evenings, and Saturday noon to 6 beginning May 4. On Saturday May 30 we will extend rehearsal until midnight and possibly add rehearsal May 31 if necessary. Performances run Thursday through Saturday evenings with matinees Saturday and Sunday, and one Thursday matinee on June 11 at 3 p.m.

    The author comes forth with another hit about a group of strangers stranded in a boarding house during a snow storm, one of whom is a murderer. The suspects include the newly married couple who run the house, and the suspicions that are in their minds nearly wreck their perfect marriage. Others are a spinster with a curious background, an architect who seems better equipped to be a chef, a retired Army major, a strange little man who claims his car has overturned in a drift, and a jurist who makes life miserable for everyone. Into their midst comes a policeman, traveling on skis. He no sooner arrives, than the jurist is killed. Two down, and one to go. To get to the rationale of the murderer's pattern, the policeman probes the background of everyone present, and rattles a lot of skeletons. Another famous Agatha Christie switch finish! Chalk up another superb intrigue for the foremost mystery writer of her time. CHARACTERS Mollie Ralston - Newlywed, married to Giles. Proprietor of Monkswell Manor. Giles Ralston - Newlywed, married to Mollie, runs the Manor with Mollie. Christopher Wren - Hyperactive man, acts in a peculiar manner. Claims he is named after a famous architect with the same name. Mrs. Boyle - A former magistrate, very critical and seems to dislike most things/behaviors she observes. Loves to be nasty. Major Metcalf - Retired from the army, blustery man. Miss Casewell - Strange aloof woman who speaks offhandedly about her horrific childhood experiences. Very mysterious, has a strong masculine side. Mr. Paravicini- A man who appears to be affecting a foreign accent, obviously artificially aged with make-up. Refuses to answer direct questions. Detective Sergeant Trotter - A policeman who says he has come to protect the guests from the murderer.

    Present Laughter is a comic play by Noel Coward in 1939. The play's title comes from a song in Shakespeare's Twelfth Night, which urges carpe diem ("present mirth hath present laughter"). The plot follows a few days in the life of t he successful and self-obsessed actor Garry Essendine as he prepares to travel for a touring commitment in Africa. Amid a series of events bordering on farce, Garry has to deal with women who want to seduce him, placate both his long-suffering secretary and his estranged wife, cope with a crazed young playwright, and overcome his fear of his own approaching fortieth birthday and, by implication, his impending mid-life crisis. Add to this Coward's incredible use of language and wit, and you have a recipe for hilarity. The Cast is rich with fully drawn and irresistibly comic characters, each with a broad actor appeal. From the frumpy and mystical housekeeper, the detached and cool secretary, the panicked producers, the patient and wise ex-wife, the debutante with a plan, the would-be playwright with an overt obsession, right to the actor extraordinaire-all characters are a romp in the woods! Please join us for what promises to be 3 months of extreme fun recreating a delectable diversion, perfect for these difficult times!

    Sister Mary Ignatius, a teaching nun who is much concerned with sin in all of its various forms, delivers a cautionary lecture to her charges. One of them, a precocious little boy named Thomas, can quote the Ten Commandments on cue, and each time he does so Sister Mary rewards him with a cookie. But when several of her former students turn up the picture darkens, along with Sister Mary's indignation. One of them is the happy mother of an illegitimate child; another a contented homosexual; still another has had two abortions—the first after having been raped on the night of her mother's death; while another student, now an alcoholic, contemplates suicide. Their stories are disturbing—but also very funny—and it is quickly apparent that one thing they all have in common is their loathing for Sister Mary and the unyielding dogma she forced on them in their formative years. In the end there is mayhem and bloodshed but, with this, the unsettling feeling that, amid the laughter, some devastating truths have been told. Sister... Female, 40's to 70's, sincere, authoritative, likeable Gary... Male, late 20s to 30s, former student of Sister Diane... Female, late 20s to 30s, former student of Sister Aloysius...

    This will be the first stage revival in more than half a century. The music is top level Herbert, and boasts three hit songs: “A Kiss in the Dark,” “On The Riviera” and “I Might Be Your Once In A While,” which originally appeared in ANGEL FACE. Set in Paris, the musical tells the story of Kitty Savery, a young American who is hired to marry a baron "temporarily" to protect his inheritance and proposed wedding to a hot-blooded Brazilian. Complications arise when the baron falls in love with Kitty, but must divorce her according to the contract. Much fur flies before the final resolution. Lots of roles abound, especially for women. There are 10 women's roles, 4 with individual songs and all with dialog. There are 4 major men's roles, as well as a men's chorus of 6. Singers should come prepared with sheet music to sing. If not memorized, an additional copy must be brought for the accompanist.

Their stormy relationship comes to a head when the workers strike for a 7½-cent pay increase, setting off not only a conflict between management and labor, but a battle of the sexes as well.

    For ambitious young actors who go Shakespearean! The famous, favorite tangled story of angry fairies, confused love, mixed-up magic, moonlight, and spoof of really bad actors! Loads of colorful, fun, crazy characters, great costumes, and a magical & spooky production. It's a "student version," shortener and easier, for actors (and wannabe's) ages 8-18. Larger parts may go to the older kids. WHAT DO DO/PREPARE: Try to be early/timely, plan on staying a couple hours. We'll do some improv, goofing around, exercises, and read a few actual passages from the play. Not a big scary deal, auditions are fun. Dress comfy & loose, like for gym class, low shoes. Bring, if you have any: picture, resume, prepared-memorized monologue (short!), prepared-memorized section of any Shakespeare, or any speech-recital piece you know. Or just bring yourself and be ready to play! CHARACTERS: Tough teenagers, rich teenagers, grumpy adults, royalty, several "hardworking Joe's" who want to be actors (very funny), Fairy King & Queen (scary/glamorous), other fairies, crazy fairies, various smaller parts. Lots of great parts for both the guys and the girls. It's a big show, heaps of fun.

    When Cliff Tucker inherits an orphan on the eve of his wedding to wealthy Bobbi Ralston, he figures he can handle matters until the foundling turns out to be full grown and gorgeous with an infant in her arms. While Cliff is fielding this disaster, his lawyer, who is in love with Bobbi, plots to scuttle the wedding. Plans backfire and lunacy multiplies when a struggling actor arrives and Cliff's housekeeper/sister lets him move into the apartment Cliff is vacating. Three convoluted romances culminate in a climactic engagement party in the final act that leaves audiences roaring with laugher. The deranged events involve a dress that looks like a Christmas tree, a stuffed monkey subbing for the baby, a telltale birthmark, and a startling dinner entree called "Penguin Wellington." This farce quickly accelerates from amusing to hilarious and is a fine frolic for the entire family to enjoy.

    Edward Albee's Pulitzer Prize winning play opens with characters Agnes and Tobias spending a typical evening in their upscale New England home. They are living an outwardly quiet yet inwardly conflicted life. This evening is no different and is fraught with Agnes's sarcastic, bitter remarks about her alcoholic, wise cracking, live in sister, and Tobias's fruitless attempts at mediation. When dysfunctional but painfully honest Julia, thier daughter visits upon the demise of yet another marriage, the conversations heats up. Add to the mix an unwelcome intrusion, from life long friends Harry and Edna, who bring with them their own fears, and the household erupts, and emotional chaos ensues. Masks are off, and painfully honest confrontation leads the characters to self revelations. It is truly a gripping show...but in the style of, Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf, Albee does leave us with a ray of hope. This is an ensemble piece. Actors should be able to play characaters within the age ranges listed. Agnes: Female (middle age to mid 60's) Agnes is married to Tobias. She is outwardly in control, though inwardly conflicted,and can be sarcastic, and sometimes cruel. Tobias: Male (middle age to mid 60's) Tobias, Agnes's husband, is the consummate peace keeper, although his task is painfully difficult and ultimately challenged even beyond his capacity to miantain a sense of normalcy. Claire: Female (middle age to late 50's) Claire is the sister of Agnes. She is a wise cracking alcololic and is open and honest concerning the relationship she and Agnes share. Harry: Male (middle age to mid 60's) Harry is married to Edna and is long time friends with Tobias and Agnes. He and Edna baring their sudden terror filled experience to their best friends. Edna: Female (middle age to mid 60's) Edna is married to Harry and is long time friends with Agnes and Tobias. She and Harry have fled to Agnes and Tobias seeking shelter and solace. Julia: Female ( late 20's to late 30's) Julia is the daughter to Agnes and Tobias. She has been divorced four times. Despite her dysfunction, she leaves no holds barred when expressing her opinions, which are many.

    CastingInfo

    Roles are for adults, requiring 11 males and 3 females. The play is a farcical black comedy revolving around Mortimer Brewster, a theatre-hating drama critic who must deal with his crazy, homicidal family and local police in Brooklyn, New York, as he debates whether to go through with his recent promise to marry the woman he loves. His family includes two spinster aunts who have taken to murdering lonely old men by poisoning them with a glass of home-made elderberry wine laced with arsenic, strychnine, and "just a pinch" of cyanide; a brother who believes he is Teddy Roosevelt and digs locks for the Panama Canal in the cellar of the Brewster home (which then serve as graves for the aunts' victims); and a murderous brother who has received plastic surgery performed by an alcoholic accomplice, Dr. Einstein (a character based on real-life gangland surgeon Joseph Moran) to conceal his identity and now looks like horror-film actor Boris Karloff (a self-referential joke, as the part was originally played by Karloff). The film adaptation follows the same basic plot, with a few minor changes. It is customary, after the cast takes several curtain calls, for the final one to finish with the "murder victims" (often well-known local personalities) entering from the basement and joining the cast for the final bow. The Town Hall Players is located in the qaint village of Stockbridge, just 12 minutes north of Chelsea and 12 minutes west of Pinckney. Visit their website at www.townhallplayers.org

    ROLES AVAILABLE Betsy (Female 18-30)--an innocent among wolves; a rose among thorns; a diamond among the rough; a... (you get the picture); must be comfortable singing a lullaby acapella. Joe (Male 20-35)--a handsome man unmarred by the life of a pirate; a fierce whirlwind when cornered; he walks with an almost noble stride. Duke (Male 35+)--a shabby rogue, oblivious romantic and an opportunistic thug; a peg leg; a beard and a penchant for badly singing a chantie or two. An old salty dog. Patch (Male 30+)--he wears one over his lost eye; a melancholy and sentimental, violent coward; “He would stab a man, but grieve for a sparrow.” Darlin (Female Older than some, but not all)--one tooth and hard years mark this earthy serving maid. “A sprig of mistletoe even in the Christmas season would beckon vainly for a kiss upon these lips.” Captain (Male 40+)--a hook hand; a bush for a beard and a sabre cut across his cheek mark this cutthroat. He is even more disreputable than his followers. Meg (Female; She would give Darlin a run for her money) --an aging gypsy fortune teller vying with Darlin to bring tears to your eyes just for sheer deficit of beauty; She is a true aficionado of grog. Singing Seamen (Age & Sex irrelevant; 4 roles) -- The crew. A band of misfits an ne’r do wells who sing sea chanties; provide the extra characters; perform the sound effects and generally set the mood for this scurvy pirate tale. Old Salt (Age & Sex irrelevant)-- Provides a jaundiced look and commentary on our paltry, pirate potboiler Wappin' Wharf: Is a melodramatic pirate tale filled with characters that could have been ripped from treasure island or wrenched from Wyeth's art. Duke and Patch reminesce of days gone by when they were in their prime and serving a real pirate scourge while Darlin keeps them stocked with grog. Duke turns his eye to the innocent Betsy, who can only find shock and amusement at the dubious honor of Duke's proposal of marriage. A fight or two and fortune teller round out this frothy, argh-filled entertainer. A preview script can be found on Project Gutenberg, www.gutenberg.org; search Wappin' Wharf.

We're looking for a boy or girl, age 8 to about 12, who would like to be the center of attention without working too hard. You already know the dialogue: "God bless us everyone!"

    Edward Albbe's Pulitzer winning play opens with characters Agness and Tobias spending a typical evening in their upscale New England home. They are living an outwardly quiet yet inwardly conflicted life. This evening is no different and is fraught with Agnes's sarcastic, bitter remarks about her alcoholic, wise cracking, live in sister, and Tobias' fruitless attempts at mediation. When dysfunctional but painfully honest Julia, their daughter visits upon the demise of yet another marriage, the conversations heat up. Add to the nix an unwelcome intrusion, from life long friends Harry and Edna and the household erupts and emotional chaos ensures. Masks are off, and painfully honest confrontation leads the characters to self revelations ...It is a truly gripping show..but in the style of Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf, Albee does leave us with a ray of hope for this group of deep and multi-layered characters. This is an ensemble piece. Actors should be able to play characters within the age ranges listed. Character Descriptions -Agnes: F middle age to mid 60s. She is married to Tobias. She is outwardly in control, though inwardly confliced, and can be sarcastic, and sometimes cruel. -Tobias: M middle age to mid 60s He is married to Agnes. He is the consummate peace keeper, although his task is painfully difficult. He is challenged even beyond his capacity to maintain a sense of normalcy. -Claire: F middle age to late 50s Sister to Agnes. She is a wise cracking alcoholic and is open and honest concerning the relationship she and Agnes share. -Harry: M middle age to mid 60s Harry is married to Edna and is a long time friend with Tobias and Agnes. He and Edna bring their sudden terror filled experience to their best friends. -Edna: F middle age to mid 60s Edna is married to Harry and is also a life long friend of Tobias and Agnes. She flees to their house for shelter and solace. -Julia: F late 20s to late 30s Julia is the daughter of Agnes and Tobias. She has been divorced four times. Dispite her dysfunction, she leaves no holds barred when expressing her opinions, which are many.

    Stella Devine is the aging star of the popular Ritz Theatre. She and her fellow company of actors are preparing for the epic play "Civil War Darlin's," written by the theatre's acclaimed playwright in residence, Micole, who has written starring roles for Stella for 20 years. Ginger, a "sweet Southern belle" from Georgia, visits a rehearsal to watch her favorite star up close. She adores Stella, she idolizes Stella, she worships Stella and, most of all, she's there to steal Stella's starring role. Pretending to be a struggling waitress who's trying to raise money to get back home, Ginger lies and cons her way into the part written for the famous star. Meanwhile, Billy, an unscrupulous newspaper reporter looking for a scoop, would love nothing more than to catch Stella throwing a tyrannical fit so he can sensationalize her in a national paper.

Throw in Brad and Chad, a set of twins played by the same person; Trevor, a bad actor (with a bad toupee) who thinks he really is fighting the Civil War; a dim-witted beauty of the stage; and an overbearing stage mother, and you have a fun, delightful comedy that's different than anything you've ever seen before!

Following are the character descriptions. Please contact me for a copy of the script. Thanks and I look forward to hearing from you. Roles that Need to be Filled Isaac - male in his 30's - The lead protagonist and loving father of David; since his wife's untimely death and his son's hopeless prognosis, he seems to have lost his vibrant energy and positive outlook on life. As tension rises, he tends to act on emotion rather than rationality. He is a good man, loving father, and close friend to Danielle, but he is willing to dive into immoral territory in order to save the one piece of family he has left: his son. Danielle - female in her 30's - The single mother of Hope; although her daughter is dying, she maintains a positive outlook on life as proven by her refusal to give Hope's liver to her best friend's son. She harbors a secret crush on Isaac that enhances her empathy for Isaac's situation. However, this crush also blinds her from Isaac's determination to save his son at any cost. Dr. Logan - male in his 40's-50's - an old friend of Isaac; Logan has been fighting David's illness for over a year, but is unable to to provide fully effective care since he cannot locate a liver donor.

    CastingInfo

    This is a fairly close adaptation of Dickens' original story, emphasizing the need to rediscover our humanity through giving. It does not emphasize any one religion over another, but rather the universal need to reach out to others. There is a good balance, I think, of the dramatic and the comedic. This is not a musical, but there will be some Christmas Caroling interspersed through the scenes, so please come ready to sing one verse of your favorite Christmas Carol. All faiths and ethnicities are welcome, and all levels of ability. The emphasis here is on creating a real, old-fashioned feeling of Holiday Spirit. All parts except Scrooge, Marley, and Christmas Present are still available. There are some really good parts in this script for 10 to 18 year old actors, as the Fezziwig daughters, and as the Cratchit children, as well as a couple of other important characters. We also will need several people of all ages to play non-speaking parts as townspeople, etc. If you've ever felt like being a part of something theatrical and fun, now's the time!

    I am a film and business student at the University of Michigan and am looking for actors for a film that I am producing. As the producer of the film, I am working with a very experienced crew. While this is a student film, we take our work very seriously and professionally, and as the producer of the film with a strong business background, I make sure of it. But that's not to say that we don't have a lot of fun while working! Below is further information and please contact me for a copy of the script. Hope to see you there. Synopsis A tense morality play about the consequences of valuing one life over another, (Insert Title) depicts a man's fight to save his son from a deadly disease. Upon discovering his son has little more than a few months to live, Isaac Fleming requests a liver transplant from his best friend's terminally ill daughter. As his friend declines to help, Isaac resolves to find an alternate solution until an unexpected seizure threatens to end young David's life within the next few days. Tension rises as the line between right and wrong begin to blur and Isaac soon enacts an irrational, desperate plot that threatens to forever change his life and the lives of his dearest friends. Roles that need to be filled: Isaac - male in his 30's - The lead protagonist and loving father of David; since his wife's untimely death and his son's hopeless prognosis, he seems to have lost his vibrant energy and positive outlook on life. As tension rises, he tends to act on emotion rather than rationality. He is a good man, loving father, and close friend to Danielle, but he is willing to dive into immoral territory in order to save the one piece of family he has left: his son. Danielle - female in her 30's - The single mother of Hope; although her daughter is dying, she maintains a positive outlook on life as proven by her refusal to give Hope's liver to her best friend's son. She harbors a secret crush on Isaac that enhances her empathy for Isaac's situation. However, this crush also blinds her from Isaac's determination to save his son at any cost. Dr. Logan - male in his 40's-50's - an old friend of Isaac; Logan has been fighting David's illness for over a year, but is unable to to provide fully effective care since he cannot locate a liver donor. Due to his friendship with Isaac he finds himself emotionally attached to David's case and he refuses to concede to defeat even when all hope seems lost. David - boy ages 5-10 years old - The only family Isaac has left; he is a joyful young boy that loves his father above all else. He cannot partake in the same physical activities as other children for fear of upsetting his blood-oxygen balance. However, he finds it difficult to bottle his energy and eventually sets off an attack that prompts Isaac's desperation. Hope - girl ages 5-10 years old - Danielle's dying daughter; she represents a symbol of hope for the principal characters. Her life is Danielle's hope and her death is Isaac's and there in lies the problem. Although she is light on dialogue and a bit sickly, she possesses a distinctly enthusiastic aura that highlights her child-like innocence.

    CastingInfo

    You Can’t Take It With You Audition Notes Ages listed in the character descriptions are the ages of the characters, not necessarily the ages of the actors. Physical characteristics (hairiness, baldness) are as described in the script, but not carved in stone, or even lukewarm Jello. The cast is primarily three generations of an extended family that live together in a large house near Columbia University. The time period is the mid to late Thirties. The cast is listed in order of appearance. Penelope Sycamore (Penny) is Grandpa’s daughter, in her early 50’s. She is unflappable, enthusiastic, and follows multiple Muses, writing and painting being the most recent. She is onstage 65 pages. Essie Carmichael (Paul and Penny’s daughter) is about 29. She has the elfin air of a ballerina. Classical dance is her obsession, and making candy is her hobby. The actress taking this role should have some dance training, as she will be dancing, doing ballet stretches, etc. throughout the play. She is onstage 50 pages. Rheba is the family cook. She is in her mid 30’s. She is very much a willing participant in the gentle lunacy of the family. The part is written for an African-American, but could be played without reference to ethnicity. She is onstage 18 pages. Paul Sycamore (Penny’s husband) is in his early 50’s. His current avocation is designing, making and selling fireworks. He is onstage 54 pages. Mr. dePinna delivered the ice to the house eight years ago, and hasn’t left yet. Along with Ed, he makes fireworks in the basement. He also is the model for an unfinished painting of a discus thrower that Penny is working on. He is described as being bald, though this is not required for the part. His physique has gone a little bit to seed since Penny started the painting eight years earlier. He is onstage 37 pages. Ed Carmichael (Essie’s husband) is in his mid 30’s. In the script, he plays a xylophone, and is fascinated with a printing press. As with Essie, the actor going for this role ideally should be able to play a xylophone. If you play any musical instrument, be prepared to demonstrate it at the audition. The music in the script is never explicitly written out, but one piece is a blend of Beethoven and jazz, while the other title mentioned is “Goody-Goody”! He is onstage 55 pages. Donald (Rheba’s boyfriend) is in his mid 30’s. He helps around the house, though he does not live there. He is unemployed, collecting a welfare check every week. The part is written for an African-American, but could be played without reference to ethnicity. He is onstage 18 pages. Martin Vander Hof (Grandpa) is in his early 70’s. He is a gentle man who has made peace with the world, not by following its rules, but by ignoring the ones he doesn’t like. At an earlier age he had been a successful financier, and he still has a small income from some properties he owns. He is onstage 58 pages. Alice Sycamore (Paul and Penny’s daughter) is about 22. While clearly a loving member of this family, she is slightly less touched by the family eccentricity. She is the only one in the family with a regular wage-paying job as a secretary to Tony Kirby. She is onstage 45 pages. Mr. Henderson is from the Department of Justice. He is trying to get Grandpa to pay eight years of back taxes, unsuccessfully. He is onstage 4 pages, and could double for one of the J-men. Tony Kirby is the romantic lead, in his mid 20‘s. He is a recent graduate of Yale and Cambridge universities, and has reluctantly taken on the “job” of vice president in his dad’s firm. He’s a bit of an idealist, and head over heels in love with Alice. He is onstage 39 pages. Boris Kolenkhov is Essie’s ballet coach, and a Russian émigré’. He is described as a great, hairy bear of a man with a booming voice, alternately enthusiastic and Russian gloomy. He wrestles onstage. He is onstage 31 pages. Gay Wellington is an alcoholic actress that Penny brings home to read a play. She spends much of her stage time passed out on the sofa. She is onstage 18 pages. Mr. Kirby (Tony’s father) is in his 50’s. He is a stuffed shirt business tycoon with the beginnings of an ulcer. He raises prize orchids as a hobby. At one point in the show, he is wrestled to the ground by Kolenkhov. He is on stage 25 pages. Mrs. Kirby (Tony’s mother) is in her early 50’s. She is a wealthy socialite who believes in Spiritualism. She is on stage 17 pages. Three J-Men all from department of Justice, sent to arrest the whole family for sedition and bad manners. They are onstage 4 pages. Grand Duchess Olga Katrina is a cook at a New York department store restaurant. She is deposed Russian nobility (it says here!). A good Russian accent would be a plus in this part. She is onstage 7 pages.

    If you are interested in auditioning send an email to felicedavis@sbcglobal.net The P S M Play Project is an adaptation of the book entitled The Prodigal Son, written by V. Ricardo Thomas Sr. and is the autobiography of V. Ricardo Thomas Sr. The purpose of this collaboration is to transform the book into a gospel stage play. The book tells the story of how V. Ricardo Thomas Sr.’s life at an early age takes a turn down the wrong path and leads him to a life of drug addiction and crime. This play will tell the story using dramatization and musical art form to show the audience that Satan is out to kill, steal and destroy our young people. It will also serve as testimony of what God can do and show that he is a deliverer and a promise keeper. This play will show the depths of an addiction and how it affects the life of the addict as well as the ones who love them. It will also show what God’s healing power does. This play will depict the downfalls of an addiction and the gift of restoration through the grace and mercy of God.

    Audition Details: Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script and related material selected by the director. Please bring a complete and accurate list of potential rehearsal conflicts. The Play: "Exit the King" was created by the noted absurdist playwright Eugene Ionesco, author of "The Bald Soprano" and "Rhinoceros." The Story: As his kingdom has been collapsing around him, King Berenger has been putting off his own death for over 300 years. So what's another 90 minutes? But when it's time to go, it's time to go, and his ex-wife, his second (trophy) wife, his doctor, his nurse, and his man-at-arms, are more than ready and willing to prepare the way out. With absurd inevitability, both comedy and tragedy ensue. The Characters: King Berenger the First – The King is nearing the end of his life. In fact, his life ends at the final curtain. This role requires an actor who can portray an age range of 60 years or above. Berenger is a Lear-esque role that reveals nearly every aspect of behavior common to the human condition. In addition, the actor in this role must be physically fit, as the King must fall and rise to his feet several times, and must climb stairs frequently during the show. Queen Marguerite – Berenger’s first wife is a no-nonsense woman of middle-age or above who takes it upon herself to successfully complete the King’s demise. Her demeanor may seem harsh as she relentlessly moves the death ritual toward its conclusion, but as everyone else gradually falls away from Berenger, she is left alone to unburden the King in his final moments. Queen Marie – Berenger’s second wife is a ‘trophy wife’ who urges her beloved King to hold back Death’s sickle as it descends. She is so empathetic to his desire to resist death, and so emotionally stricken at its approach, that her attempts to console him amount to little more than ineffectual defiance. She should be conspicuously younger than Marguerite. The Doctor – The Doctor observes the decline of his* royal patient with little more than intellectual curiosity at its progression. In addition to being a man* of medicine, he* is also a combination of royal astrologer and royal executioner, and so has only the most desultory interest in the eventual outcome. The Doctor can be almost any (adult) age, though perhaps middle-age or above is preferable. Juliette – Juliette is a combination maid, nurse and general dogsbody for the King, and is more concerned with her own duties than in the larger issues of the disappearance and decline of civilization. She often embodies an outside perspective that mirrors what one might expect from the audience. She could be played as either old or young – the target age is probably older than young and younger than old. Guard – The Guard is sometimes narrator, sometimes commentator, sometimes Greek chorus – and even occasionally does a bit of ‘play-by-play.’ A good and genial sense of (low) humor is the most important quality for the actor playing this character. The guard is specified in the script as being relatively old; I intend to cast whoever is funniest, regardless of age. * the Doctor is written for (and has generally been played by) a man, but I see no reason why gender-blind casting could not be used for this character.
