CastingInfo

Roles for 2 Males (35-60) and 2 Females (19-25) are available. (The roles of Brindsley, Furnival, Colonel, and Harold are cast.) The action of the play will take place in London, 1969. British accents will be used. Play synopsis: Struggling artist Brindsley Miller and his fiancée Carol are having a party with the aim of impressing Carol’s bombastic father, Colonel Melkett, and millionaire Georg Bamberger, who may buy some of Brindsley’s sculptures. They have borrowed (without permission) the furniture and effects of their fussy neighbor, Harold, to make the flat more presentable. Before the guests arrive the main fuse blows, plunging the flat into darkness; only the audience can see what is happening. What follows is a frantic romp with unexpected visitors, mistaken identities, and surprises lurking in every dark corner! The result, as you might expect, is chaotic, disastrous – and very funny!

Dear actors, My name is Billy Jackson and I am the producer of the student film “Flying Lotus of the Undead II” through the University of Michigan Film program. "Flying Lotus 2" is a zombie/kung-fu fusion B-movie homage short. The film, shot on 16mm and on track to premiere at the Lightworks festival, is a sequel that follows the main characters from Flying Lotus I as they attempt to survive after the initial zombie invasion of feudal China. It is a horror-martial arts film which culminates in a kung-fu fight between the protagonist and two zombies. We are seeking an actor for our third principle character who can play an Asian male between the ages of 16 to 35. Martial arts ability is preferred, but general athletic ability and willingness to learn fight choreography would be acceptable. We will be shooting on November 20th and 21st starting at 1PM, with possible shooting on the 22nd starting at 5PM. Rehearsals will take place beforehand and can be scheduled to accommodate our actors. Contact me through email at willjack@umich.edu or by phone at 734-709-6596 at any time if you are at all interested. We will arrange an audition date and time.

CastingInfo

In the contemporary dark comedy Desperate Affection, a seemingly perfect romance takes a wild turn when one of the lovers reveals a deep secret. Desperate Affection has roles for 1 woman and 1man. Maddie: She is in her mid-thirties, attractive in a down-to-earth sort of way. There is a touch of eccentricity about her; Maddie has her own style. Richard: He is in his 40's and the exact opposite of Maddie; a pleasant looking guy, but there is absolutely nothing memorable about his appearance. Auditions consist of cold readings from the script. No pre-registration is required. For further info, visit the audition page at a2ct.org

The Croswell in downtown Adrian presents its 2011 All-Area High School production, FOOTLOOSE. All high school aged students are encouraged to audition, and the cast will be comprised of students from throughout the area! Based on the movie of the same name, Footloose is one of the most explosive movie musicals in recent memory. When Ren and his mother move from Chicago to a small farming town, Ren isn't prepared for a local ban on dancing instituted by the local preacher. When the reverend's rebellious daughter sets her sights on Ren, her roughneck boyfriend tries to sabotage Ren's reputation, with many of the locals eager to believe the worst about the new kid. The heartfelt story that emerges is of a father longing for the son he lost and of a young man aching for the father who walked out on him. All roles in Footloose will be played by high school students. With many great roles, and fun parts for the ensemble, you won't want to miss this opportunity!

CastingInfo

“This Broadway hit is a homage to the author’s early days in show biz when he worked as a junior jokesmith for Sid Caesar’s Your Show of Shows. He was stuck in a room with a bunch of the looniest comedy writers ever, who grew up to be the likes of Mel Brooks, Larry Gelbart and others. The play is a memoir told by Neil Simon’s alter ego, Lucas. As the writers try to top each other with gags while competing for the attention of head madman Max Prince (the Sid Caesar character), Max contends with the NBC brass who fear his humor is too sophisticated for middle America.” Looking to be a part of a true ensemble show that provides laughs, fun and enjoyment? This is it! This is a great show that provides every character a chance to shine. Now, we all know that the rehearsal process can be long and often laborious. But we’re looking to make this a truly enjoyable process. Why do it if it’s not fun? We will be trying all sorts of things to bring these characters to life. There will be no limits to what we can try. Actor input is encouraged, expected and vital to the rehearsal process. So, if you are ready, gather your creativity and talent and bring it! This show is set in 1953 and we will be making every effort to be as authentic as possible. That means that we may ask you to shave a beard, (especially for the female roles) or cut your hair. Rehearsals will run Jan. to March, 2011. Please bring any schedule conflicts to the audition. Additionally, since we are casting this show earlier than normal, there will be a couple of read-through sessions prior to the official start of rehearsal. We will be working to get “off-book” as soon as possible. Please email the director for copies of the audition scenes prior to the audition dates if you’d like a bit of prep time. Roles: Lucas Brickman: Neil Simon’s alter ego. The youngest and newest member of the staff. These are his memories. Male, 20 - 30 Milt Fields: “Wholesale” joke writer. Works in quantity to keep up with the rest. Always ready with a comment or one-liner. Male, 30 - 50 Val Skolsky: Senior member of the staff. Russian immigrant. Politically sensitive. Actor must speak with a Russian accent. Male, 30 - 60 Brian Doyle: Unkempt, balding, heavy smoker with a biting sense of humor and dreams of heading for Hollywood. Male, 20 - 40 Kenny Franks: Comedic wiz-kid. Started working at a very young age. One of the younger members of the staff, but also one of the most experienced. Male, 20-30 Carol Wyman: The lone female writer on the staff. She is smart, quick-witted and strong. Fights to be seen as a “writer”, not a “female writer”. Female, 20 - 40 Max Prince: The King of TV. He doesn’t dominate the room when he enters, he is the room. He exudes strength but is also an emotional roller coaster. He is the father to this dysfunctional family of writers. The show is his life and he loves his staff with all of his heart. Male, 30-50 Ira Stone: Hypochondriac with boundless energy. Has a touch of madness to his comedic brilliance. He’s quick to defend himself, but also easily hurt and offended. Male, 20-40 Helen: Max’s secretary. Not the brightest bulb on the tree, she is easily confused and is sometimes in danger of being lost in the comedic hurricane of the writer’s room. Female, 20-30

I am seeking an actor and actress for a short silent film that will be shot over the course of the November 12-14 weekend in the Ann Arbor area. As this is a student production, I cannot offer compensation other than credit. The film is being made for a film production class at the University of Michigan and will likely be screened at the end of semester "Lightworks" film festival. The film is about a neurotic man who is bored with his life as a grocery store employee who meets a woman that becomes interested in him while he is working. The man is slightly delusional and often imagines worst case scenarios happening wherever he looks. I am seeking a male in his late 20s to late 30s. Basically, old enough that you do not look like you are a college student. I need an actor that can take on the role of a timid and reserved person. I am also looking for a female in her late 20s to mid 30s. She needs to be able to take on a flirtatious personality. If you are interested in filling one of these roles please send a headshot or photo of yourself to alantor@umich.edu and I will give you a prompt response and a copy of the script.

Sarah Barton, Co-President Walter Lin, Co-President M-agination Films University of Michigan ===================== Fall Productions: All I Need is You (Music Video) Director: Joon Chung Songwriter: Daniel Kim E. Producer: Ryan Jennings A music video for the song, All I Need is You. It?s a love song showing that there are no boundaries to love and that it doesn't matter what others think about the love. It is going to have a focus on the singer-songwriter, Daniel Kim, and his band along with portrayals of couples earnestly showing affection towards each other while looking directly at the camera. Coffee Zombies Writer/Director: Mike McCrindle E. Producer: Sarah Barton Coffee Zombies is a faux-horror comedy short in the form of a coffee commercial. It pays homage to the zombie-horror genre with dramatic situational dialogue and will employ soundtrack heavily to emphasize the tension (and ultimately humor) of the scenario. Daisy Chain Writer/Director: Walter Lin A boy weaves in and out of the dream world in search of the girl he loves. Five O'clock Writer/Director: Danny Agar Writer/Director: Samuel Shapiro E. Producer: Walter Lin There is something very odd about Jack Brickner's newscast. Mother Lover Writer/Director: James A. Janisse A sex addict with a list of the types of girls he wants to conquer sees a golden opportunity when it's Parent's Weekend to cross off yet another: MILF Pizza Makers Writer/Director: Andrew Ericksen E. Producer: Jackie Turner After dropping out of college and getting dumped by his girlfriend, Andy begins working night shifts at a pizza shop to make some money. Little to his knowledge, his two managers are planning on drugging him and framing him for robbing the shop. Switch Director: Bhanu Chundu Writer: Joel Arnold E. Producer: Dave Devries When Jason, an impetuous 20-year-old, is forced to spend two weeks of his precious summer vacation assisting his ailing 82-year-old grandfather, Ed, he's less than excited, and Ed soon realizes his grandson is an immature nitwit. When fate switches their bodies, their relationship fundamentally changes. A dark and realistic take on the body switch movie. Wolverine Sketch Writer/Director: Liann Kaye A 5-minute news parody in the style of The Onion New Network detailing the student population's push to replace the Michigan Wolverine mascot with Hugh Jackman's Wolverine from X-men. Arguments include: 1. No one knows what an actually Wolverine looks like 2. Hugh Jackman's Wolverine has a six-pack, indestructible metal claws...and is all around more badass.

CastingInfo

Ann Arbor Civic Theatre is seeking directors for the 2011-2012 season. Below is the important information for prospective directors. Process: To help the committee develop a balanced season, the committee will be using a three-phase application review process. 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, a 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. If possible, the director should obtain royalty availability for shows they are proposing. 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. 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 January. 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. 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. We also believe it is important to involve as many community members in our mainstage productions as is feasible, so we are asking directors to submit plays with at least 6 characters (our Studio Series is a great venue for smaller-cast plays). 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: October 25, 2010 (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 4, 2010 – 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 a committee chairperson. November 22, 2010 (4:00pm) – Full proposals are due. January 8 and 9, 2011 – Interviews take place. Director interviews will be scheduled for the directors whose full proposals have been selected. January 18, 2011 – Committee recommendations for the 2011-12 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. Visit www.a2ct.org to download the application forms. If you have any questions concerning the process or if you need assistance please contact Cassie Mann (manager@a2ct.org, 734-971-2228) at the Ann Arbor Civic Theatre office or Committee Co-chair Amy Bogetto-Weinraub at bogettoa@juno.com.

We are re-posting the role of SARAH, as the actor in this role has had to withdraw. We are seeking an experienced female actor 30-60, who can do a British accent/dialect and who can memorize and learn blocking, etc. quickly. Please contact the director immediately if you are interested. Note that this is community theater. PTD will mount a full production of "Table Manners" (7 performances) and staged readings of "Living Together" and "Round and Round the Garden" (1 performance each). The same characters appear in all three plays. This production is described in detail in an earlier posting. Here's a description of the character (from enotes.com): "Sarah's desire to control every situation results from her attempt to conceal a highly nervous disposition. Lack of harmony upsets Sarah, and she becomes genuinely distraught when things fail to go according to plan. Her one desire is to spend a quiet weekend with her family. When this desire proves to be unattainable, Sarah becomes agitated and overbearing." The playwright describes her as ". . . deeply unhappy. . . Despite her apparent care for the world, she is extraordinarily self-centered, somewhat vain, a bully, sexually repressed, and not, alas, very bright."

This will be the 3rd annual production of this great holiday story from Emergent Arts and writer/director Tim Henning. Adapted by Mr. Henning from the Charles Dickens original story, it remains true to the classic tale of a man who rediscovers the joy of being human, and the importance of reaching out to family, friends and those who are less fortunate. All the great characters are there, the dramatic scene between Scrooge and Marley, the ghostly travels of Scrooge with the Spirits of Past, Present and Future, the determined and cheerful Cratchit family, Scrooge's nephew who never gives up, and even the little urchin who Scrooge sends off to buy the turkey. And Jeffries. A minor character of a servant in the original story who has been "fleshed out" into a charmingly funny crowd favorite. Over forty parts, both dramatic and comic. All levels of experience accepted. There is no pay, except that you will definitely be in the holiday spirit by opening night! For a full list of characters, go to the audition page at emergentarts.com. Then pick up a copy of the original "A Christmas Carol" and read it! It's available free on-line at gutenberg.org.

Casting continues for Richard O'Brien's Rocky Horror Show, so ONE MORE NIGHT OF AUDITIONS! Tuesday, September 14th from 7-8:30 PM at the Chelsea Center for the Arts (CCA), 400 Congdon Street, Chelsea, MI 48118. This is going to be one fun show, so don't just dream it....BE it!! Visit http://chelseaareaplayers.org/ for details. Richard O'Brien's The Rocky Horror Show is a long-running British stage musical that has become an international sensation since its 1973 debut. A visual and musical camp satire of the B-movie horror and science-fiction genres, it is a rock musical, where fans dress up as the characters, shout "call-backs" at the stage, and use props at appropriate moments. It tells the story of two clean-cut kids, Brad and Janet, who run into car trouble and end up at the castle of Dr. Frank-N-Furter and his bizarre entourage, who are having a party. No ordinary party, no ordinary night, it is the unveiling of the doctor’s latest creation....Rocky, a man-made Adonis.

CastingInfo

PTD will fully stage the first play in the trilogy, “Table Manners” (7 performances) and will present staged readings of the second play, “Living Together” (1 performance, Saturday matinee, Dec. 11) and the third, “Round and Round the Garden” (1 performance, Saturday matinee, Dec. 18). “The Norman Conquests” offers a unique opportunity for actors to play the same character (with the same ensemble) in three different, closely related, plays. It is also an exciting and unusual chance for audience members to experience a trilogy, including two plays in a single day if they so choose. "The Norman Conquests" is a trilogy of plays about a trilogy of couples, ages ~30-40 (although we may cast older): three siblings (Annie, Reg, and Ruth) and their respective or would-be or might-be spouses (Tom, Sarah, and Norman). It takes place in their childhood home: a grand, but decaying Victorian vicarage in rural England in the mid-1970's. Their mother (never seen, but periodically invoked) is bedridden, and cared for by Annie. All the couple relationships are fraught. After years of knowing each other, Annie and Tom can’t decide if they want to have a romantic relationship. Sarah and Reg constantly bicker and don’t like each other much: Reg is relatively clueless and takes refuge in model airplanes and homemade games; Sarah feels she must take care of everything and everyone, including Reg and their two young children. Ruth and Norman are particularly unsuited to each other - Ruth is a successful businesswoman (literally and figuratively “blind” without her glasses which she refuses to wear), while Norman is a free-spirited, bumbling, charming, assistant librarian lacking social intelligence. The other relationships (between sisters Annie and Ruth, brothers-in-law Norman and Reg) are less fraught, but not especially warm. No one quite knows what to make of Tom, the rather vague vet, who continually hangs around Annie, yet seems to have more ideas about how to get along with animals than with other people. Norman makes a play for both his sisters-in-law, Annie and Sarah, blind to the wild inappropriateness of this, since he “just wants to make them happy.” And, being desperately unhappy, they both respond positively, at least at first. Actors should be experienced, available (minimal conflicts), 100% dependable, fully committed to this production, eager to work hard as part of an ensemble, and able to speak with a “British” accent (dialect to be worked on during the production). Each character is well developed. There is some onstage kissing and suggested intimacy. Memorization for “Table Manners” will occur early. Actors will need to be very familiar with their lines from “Living Together” and “Round and Round the Garden,” but these will not need to be memorized. The rehearsal schedule will be intense. While creative scheduling will optimize the actors’ time in rehearsals, some weeks will include four rehearsals, and a few will include five. Not all actors will be needed at all rehearsals. Rehearsals will not be held most Tuesday evenings. Please bring a typed theater resume, including names of directors you have worked with, a recent photo, and your conflicts between September and December. Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script, but you may also perform a short monologue (1-2 minutes) if you have one prepared. Characters (all could be played by actors 30 - 65): Annie Ruth Sarah Tom Norman Reg Note: If your observance of the Jewish High Holidays conflicts with the audition schedule, please contact the director for another audition time and place.

We are a step above in professionalism. The director of the show is a theatre faculty member at MSU, so training is part of the process. We only take a few people each year, but those who join have an opportunity to do many different types of plays not normally done in community theatre. We are not a "big musical pack the stage with actors" group, but a smaller troupe that continues to grow in experience and size. If you like drama, comedy, dialects and some classic acting, we are for you. This audition is for adults only, although we do have a children's theatre troupe that will be part of the production.

The Rocky Horror Show is a long-running British stage musical that has become an international sensation since its 1973 debut. A visual and musical camp satire of the B-movie horror and science-fiction genres, it is a rock musical, where fans dress up as the characters, shout "call-backs" at the stage, and use props at appropriate moments. It tells the story of two clean-cut kids, Brad and Janet, who run into car trouble and end up at the castle of Dr. Frank-N-Furter and his bizarre entourage, who are having a party. No ordinary party, no ordinary night, it is the unveiling of the doctor’s latest creation....Rocky, a man-made Adonis. Don’t miss this kitschy Rock 'n' Roll sci-fi gothic stage treat! Auditions will be held Sept. 7 in Chelsea and Sept. 8 in Ann Arbor. Callbacks Sept. 10 in Chelsea. All rehearsals will be held in Chelsea, with tech week and performances in Ann Arbor at the Mendelssohn. Age range = High School and above. Note that all minors MUST be accompanied by a parent or guardian during the audition. See www.chelseaareaplayers.org for details.

Its recreation in 1965 starring Lesley Ann Warren was no less successful in transporting a new generation to the miraculous kingdom of dreams-come-true, and so was a second remake in 1997, which starred Brandy as Cinderella and Whitney Houston as her Fairy Godmother.

In MINDGAME, a pulp-crime writer travels to a mental institution for an interview with a notorious serial killer. But when he arrives at the asylum, he realizes nothing can be trusted, not even his own eyes, and he finds himself searching for answers to curious questions: Why is there a skeleton in the doctor’s office?

No matter how old you are, there is a perfect role for you! Performances will be in early December. Come and be part of this wonderful production! Based on the popular comic strip, Annie Junior tells of a spunky Depression-era orphan determined to find her parents, who abandoned her years ago on the doorstep of a New York City Orphanage run by the cruel Miss Hannigan. In adventure after fun-filled adventure, Annie foils Miss Hannigan's evil machinations, befriends President Franklin Roosevelt and finds a new family in billionaire Oliver Warbucks, his personal secretary Grace Farrell and a lovable mutt named Sandy. Its upbeat plot and flamboyant characters have made Annie one of the most beloved musicals in history. http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=145424112137722 http://www.positiveattitudedance.com/default.htm

Based on the popular 1988 film, DIRTY ROTTEN SCOUNDRELS centers on two con men living on the French Riviera. The first is the suave and sophisticated Lawrence Jameson, who makes his lavish living by talking rich ladies out of their money. The other, a small-time crook named Freddy Benson, more humbly swindles women by waking their compassion with fabricated stories about his grandmother's failing health. After meeting on a train, they unsuccessfully attempt to work together only to find that this small French town isn't big enough for the two of them. They agree on a settlement: the first one to extract $50,000 from a young female target, heiress Christine Colgate, wins and the other must leave town. A hilarious battle of cons ensues, that will keep audiences laughing, humming and guessing to the end!

This hilarious live stage show takes all the elements of the cult classic horror films, Evil Dead 1, Evil Dead 2, and Army of Darkness then combines them to make one of the craziest theatrical experiences of all time. Five college students go to an abandoned cabin in the woods, and accidentally unleash an evil force that turns them all into demons. It's all up to Ash (a housewares employee, turned demon killing hero), and his trusty chainsaw to save the day. Blood flies. Limbs are dismembered. Demons are telling bad jokes... and all to music. The songs in the show are completely off the wall as well. Titles like "All the Men in My Life Keep Getting Killed by Candarian Demons" and "What the F*@k was That" will have you rolling in your seats, and screaming for more and more blood. Casting for 4 men and 4 women. For more information, and examples of song please check out www.evildeadthemusical.com We are looking for actors 18 years of age and older. There will be much blood and vulgarity so please do not try out if this will be an issue for you. Please bring either a CD or sheet music for the vocal portion of the auditions. Rock and Roll music is preferable since this show is unlike any other musical out there.

Please prepare a one-minute contemporary, dramatic monologue. While monologues are preferred, if you do not have one, please be prepared to recite a brief poem. The audition will consist of group theater games, monologue presentations in a closed setting and cold readings from the script. Parts for 2 women. This Pulitzer Prize winning drama opens with Jessie calmly asking her mother for her father’s service revolver, in order to commit suicide that very evening. With brutal honesty Jessie reveals the reasons for her decision and how thoroughly she has planned her own death. Suspense builds as Mama desperately tries to alter her daughter’s plans, sharing truths about issues that have affected Jesse’s life, but were never communicated to her. This is the dialogue that most never get to have about suicide. Will it change Jessie's mind? JESSIE: late thirties (or early forties), needs to have a haunting quality a sort of hollow-eyed focus on “somewhere else” *women in their 20’s are encouraged to audition, we might skew this a bit younger MAMA: late fifties (or early sixties), needs to be sturdy but have a comfortable quality to her, she is the child in the play
