CastingInfo

Seeking two actors to play an elderly married couple. Race and physical type is open. Improvisation skills needed for very naturalistic acting. A sense of humor is valuable! 1. Woman, wife, appears 60-70, who is suffering from slight dementia from the onset of Alzheimer's 2. Man, husband, appears 60-70, who is gently dealing with and caring for his wife. An elderly couple is visiting the art museum in Ann Arbor at the university. The husband gently escorts his wife to view different art objects, and the scene continues outside in front of the museum for a moment. A animatic storyboard of the concept can be seen here: https://vimeo.com/55807757 password: UMMA This short film is for the non-profit art museum and will be on permanent exhibit both inside the museum and online on their website http://www.umma.umich.edu/ Since this is a non profit production, and not a SAG production, a $50 per actor is the only payment to cover rehearsals and shooting. Travel costs will be compensated, and meals will be provided if needed. Shooting would probably take a total of 8 hours maximum split over two days (4 hours a day). It will be very cold outside since it is January, so heavy winter wear will be required of the actor. The actors are expected to provide their own wardrobe after meeting with the director and going through options. The short film will only run 3-4 minutes. The woman is required to climb up in a swinglike structure that is part of an outdoor sculpture and try to swing in almost childlike abandon, so please be able to create that kind of physical action. Please contact the producer/director at sharadkantpatel@gmail.com

The boisterous daughters of ‘Modern Major-General’ Stanley, an hilarious troupe of policemen, and the irrepressible Pirates of Penzance will commandeer the Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre stage from April 11-14, 2013. Come and join the merriment in this classic musical comedy, “exceedingly droll, full of good points, odd rhymes, and irresistibly comical situations” (The New York Times – 1/1/1880). Roles for SATB in three of the most engaging choruses ever set upon the theatrical stage, plus memorable featured principal roles including Frederic, Mabel, Ruth and Major-General Stanley. Unforgettable songs include “Poor Wandering One,” “With Cat-Like Tread,” and the indelible (and much parodied) “I am the very model of a modern Major-General.” Auditions will consist of 32 bars (more or less) of a piece from opera, comic opera or musical theater – you provide the sheet music, we provide the accompanist. A short dance combination will be taught to audition groups at the end of each hour. Cold readings from the script and sight-singing from the score may be required at callbacks (if necessary). Displaying a sense of swagger and/or Victorian charm is strongly encouraged. Sign up for audition times between 7:00 and 10:00 pm on January 14, 15 or 16 by attending the UMGASS Mass Meeting at 7:00 pm on Sunday, January 13 at the Michigan League, or e-mail umgassexec@umich.edu to request an audition time-slot.

CastingInfo

Don't miss the chance to participate in this delightful parody of the plays written by William Shakespeare...that's right...ALL of them! The actors use their real names and play themselves (well, with created personalities) rather than certain characters. The fourth wall is nonexistent during the performances, with the actors speaking directly to the audience during much of the play -- and some scenes involve audience participation! Improvisation plays a very important role in this play, and it is normal for the actors to deviate from the script and have spontaneous conversations about the material with each other and the audience. As a result, each performance can be vastly different from another. If you have what it takes to play with the Bard and the audience, please come and audition! We need spunky, playful characters to make this play reach its full potential! AUDITIONS: Monday: December 3, 7:30 PM and Tuesday:December 4, 6:30 PM SHOW DATES: February 15-17, February 22-24, 2013 LOCATION: All auditions and performances are at The Village Theater at Cherry Hill, 50400 Cherry Hill Rd., Canton, MI, 48187.TICKETS: By phone at the Village Theater Box Office at 734-394-5300 or 734-394-5460 or online atwww.spotlightplayersmi.org or in person at The Summit on the Park or at the door! Box office opens 1 hour prior to show-time. Tickets are $20.00/adults; $18.00/seniors, $18.00/students under 19. CALL FOR GROUP RATES. Spotlight Players is the resident adult theater group at the Village Theater at Cherry Hill.

Comedy / 7 m, 3 f, plus 26 distinct offstage voices. Barry Champlain, Cleveland’s controversial radio host is on the air doing what he does best: insulting the pathetic souls who call in the middle of the night to sound off. Tomorrow, Barry’s show is going into national syndication and his producer is afraid Barry will say something that will offend the sponsors. This, of course, makes Barry even more audacious. Funny and moving, offbeat, outrageous and totally entrancing, Talk Radio had a long run at New York’s Public Theater… The set will be Barry's broadcasting studio, with a radio professional running the sound on stageThis play was turned into an Oliver Stone movie.

CastingInfo

“Interface” is a 12 minute film about a society completely engulfed by technology. People's attentions are not focused on the world around them, but on a new computer program that tells them how to live. It directs them in every aspect of their daily lives, and as a result, people are completely disconnected from reality. Our story focuses on one man who dares to think, and thus, transcends this collective state of mind and breeches into the unknown land of romance emotion and self expression. We are looking to cast the following roles: David: late twenties, good-looking in a normal sort of way. Perceptive and thoughtful. Tends to be disorganized. Around women, he can be rather clueless – but it makes him kind of charming. Naturally earnest and passionate, he’s never felt quite right living under the monotonous regulation of the computer device. Sarah: late twenties and beautiful, but doesn’t think anything of it. Totally devoted to her work and to her computer device. She’s rather emotionless, though not because she chooses to be – she simply doesn’t know of any other way. Though she does her best to ignore him, David finally manages to get under her skin and to upset the balance of her perfectly-regulated world. The Device: This “character” is simply a voice, to be recorded and used as the voice of the computer device. The voice must strike a balance between human and computer – in other words, to be able to deliver monotonous, computer-like lines with a human quality. The device must seem trustworthy, competent, friendly (think of Hal from 2001: A Space Odyssey). Minor roles: Chelsea: twenties, gentle and unassuming, David’s soon-to-be civil union partner. Fully acclimated to the regulation and control of her device, she lives her live quietly and without questioning a thing. Tom: late twenties/early thirties, David’s co-worker. Cares about one thing: doing the work he’s given each day, and not causing any trouble.

CastingInfo

A Christmas Carol has 30 roles played by 20-30 actors. Major roles needed are: Ebenezer Scrooge Bob Cratchit Mrs. Cratchit 5 Cratchit children ages 10 aand up Spirits of Christmas Past, Present and Future Young Scrooge (age 10-20) Mr. and Mrs. Fezziwig and their three daughters Young Dick Wilkins The Headmaster Old Joe The Washerwoman Mrs. Dilber The Undertaker and of course Scrooge's Nephew and friends and Marley. Also choral singers to sing seasonal songs between scenes. All of the characters are basically the same as you will find in the original story, available on the Project Gutenberg website here http://www.gutenberg.org/files/46/46-h/46-h.htm . Jeffries, a comical servant character (40s and up) who appears throughout my version is also available. He's in the original, but I have turned him into a major character. Some actors will be asked to play multiple parts. Non-paying. All talent levels are needed. The more the merrier! Just so you know, my adaptation retains all of the great material that people expect to see in "Christmas Carol", with an extra accent on humor, and heartfelt holiday cheer. My feeling is that the message of giving transcends the promotion of any one religious belief or denomination. Everyone is welcome in our celebration of the Christmas spirit! The church is hosting Township elections the same evening, so auditioners should enter the church through the western-most door, which is the first one you see on your right as you enter the parking lot. It leads directly into the chapel. Headshots and resume are helpful, but not required. You can email them in advance to info@emergentarts.com. To request a specific time use the same email address. Otherwise, actors will be seen in order of arrival.

James and the Giant Peach - Nov 30, Dec 1, Dec 2, 2012 An orphaned boy named James lives oppressed by two nasty, self-centered, mean aunts. After coming across some magical beans and spilling them, James escapes his miserable life with the horrible aunts and becomes a hero! This beloved Roald Dahl children’s fantasy is of the highest order. You will never forget resourceful little James and his new family of magically overgrown insects — a ladybug, a spider, a grasshopper, a glowworm, a silkworm, and the chronic complainer, a centipede with a hundred shoes. Their adventures aboard a giant, luscious peach as large as a house take them across the Atlantic Ocean, through waters infested with peach-eating sharks, and skies filled with seagulls. This happily ever after contemporary fairy tale is a twentieth-century classic that every child deserves to know.

The crew is split between students at U-M and professionals - we are looking for non-SAG actors to join this fun production! These are unpaid positions, but expenses and meals will be covered. SYNOPSIS: Pauline, a liberal student activist on the U of M campus in 1934, comes into conflict with an all-male campus leadership society…and Jerry Ford, her love interest, is the main one opposing her efforts. CASTING BREAKDOWN: Pauline (18-24 to play 21): Our protagonist; in almost every scene. Quirky, flirtatious, a student activist. Jerry (18-24 to play 21): Must be blond or willing to dye hair. Good-looking, tall, square-jawed, the All-American boy…and will grow up to be President Gerald Ford. He's attracted to Pauline but doesn't think they'll ever be together. Charlotte (20-25 to play 22): A Paris from Gilmore Girls-type. Opinionated, ambitious, elegant. Arthur (16-22 to play 18): A Joseph Gordon-Levitt-type, he is a fast-talking editor on the student newspaper and Pauline’s wingman. Willis (18-24 to play 21): African-American, tall, and good-looking. Well-respected around campus. Jerry's best friend and sees what's going on with Pauline better than Jerry does. Carl (18-24 to play 21): A clean-cut student leader. He is a reasonable presence in the student-leadership society, but can be dramatic and grandstanding when he wants to be. Jack (18-24 to play 21): The editor-in-chief of the school paper. Incisive and intelligent. William (20-25 to play 22): The president of the liberal National Student League. Conniving and a little sleazy, although deep down he does believe in the same ideas as the rest of his group (including Charlotte and Pauline).

CastingInfo

Sides available at the auditions only. Auditions will be cold readings from the script. Email info@emergentarts.com if you need to request a specific time. We will do our best to accomodate you. Otherwise, actors will be taken in order of sign-in. Headshot and resume if you have them. Forms will be provided, and photo taken at audition. Non-Equity. A very small stipend will be paid for performances. This is an original dark comedy based on the Jekyll and Hyde story by Stevenson. The play is set in modern day Hollywood, where Henry Jekyll is a bitter out of work actor whose friend and confidante Gabby has begun to notice violent coincidences surrounding her pal. Everyone knows that "Jekyll and Hyde" is just a story, right? But what if it's, as they say, "based on true events"? What if Jekyll is actually descended from the cursed Doctor, and carries within him his own bloodthirsty Mr. Hyde? Gabby and her motley band of Hollywood misfits and bar room denizens gradually find themselves sucked into the dark side of the entertainment world, following in the footsteps of a devil they;re not so sure they want to find. This is a play in development, so a very important requirement is a willingness to work with changing material.  Casting Henry Jekyll.... 30s to 50s, a good guy who just needs to catch a break. Gabby...Jekyll's younger confidante and protégé, she cares about Jekyll and doesn't want to believe he is evil. She has her own dark secrets that even she is unaware of. 20s to 40s. LuLu...Former heavyweight champion and ex TV heartthrob, LuLu spends his golden years popping pills and drinking sea breezes, and dancing in a punchy haze to jukebox tunes. 50s and up. Erika... Blowsy, with a martini in one hand and a superfluous cigarette holder in the other, she is acid tongued and cynically romantic. Once a sexpot, now a professional stand-in for a very famous actress on a sitcom. Gene... The bartender at the Hollywood Hangout, who's seen 'em all and served 'em all. 50s and up. Michael,,,Casting Director for a new movie of "Jekyll And Hyde". Imperious and clueless, with the heart of a lion, The Cowardly Lion, without the eventual self awareness. Scott...the Casting Assistant on the movie, he is 1/3 idea man, 1/3 yes man, and the rest is a vacuum. Wolfie...Scot's replacement as Casting Assistant. German accent, turns out he's related to Werner Herzog, but he's even crazier. A Dancer...A non-speaking role, the Dancer has a silent scene with the character of Hyde, in which she/he is killed. Also may play other victims of Hyde. Does not have to be a skilled dancer, but should be "able to move".

CastingInfo

An unhappy game of romantic follow the leader explodes into murder one weekend at The Hollow, home of Sir Henry and Lucy Angkatell. Dr. Cristow is at the center of the trouble: Henrietta, his mistress; Veronica, his ex mistress; and Gerda, his wife are all at The Hollow. Also visiting are Edward (who is in love with Henrietta) and Midge (who loves Edward). Veronica ardently desires to marry Cristow and succeeds in reopening their affair but is unable to get him to divorce his wife. Veronica unwisely states that if she cannot have him, no one shall. Within five minutes Cristow is dead. Nearly everyone has a motive and most had the opportunity. Enter Inspector Colquhoun and Sergeant Penny to solve the crime. Characters (6M, 6F), in order of appearance: Henrietta Angkatell (Female, 30s) – an attractive and winning woman, she is a working artist, and is having a secret affair with the married Dr. John Cristow. Sir Henry Angkatell, KCB (Male, 60+) – The patriarch, and host for the family gathering at The Hollow, he is a distinguished, elderly man with a wry sense of humor that keeps things on an even keel. Lady Lucille Angkatell (Female, 60+) – Henry’s elderly wife, she is alternately obtuse, charming, ditzy and profound, though most people aren’t quite sure when she is being which. Midge Harvey (Female, 20s) – a young cousin who did not inherit any of the entailed family fortune and works at a regular day job. She is secretly in love with Edward Angkatell. Gudgeon (Male, 50+) – the loyal and resourceful butler, he longs for a more refined and cultured world that is fast disappearing. Edward Angkatell (Male, 20s-30s) – the tweedy, bookish cousin who inherited the old family estate and is secretly in love with Henrietta. Doris (Female, 18-25) – the young and naive maid, she is tutored by Gudgeon in the finer points of servility. Gerda Cristow (Female, 30s) – the docile, placid and unremarkable wife of Dr. John Cristow, she is almost solely interested in being a good wife and mother. John Cristow, MD, FCRP (Male, 30s-40s) – a handsome, brusque, married doctor who is more interested in his research than in his patients’ welfare, and has a particular disinterest in fidelity to his wife. Veronica Craye (Female, 30s) – a famous film actress who once had an affair with Dr. Cristow and asked him to abandon his studies to follow her to Hollywood; she is now staying in a cottage nearby and has designs on renewing their affair. Inspector Colquhoun, CID (Male, 35+) – the inspector sent to investigate the murder that takes place during the show, he is straightforward and logical, if not particularly inspired or insightful. Detective Sergeant Penny (Male, 20s) – Inspector Colquhoun’s eager and able assistant.

CastingInfo

For our twentieth anniversary live, theatrical Halloween event, the Marshall recreation department is presenting a haunted trail with three times the thrills! Our haunted trails are unlike most you encounter - it's a lot like a spooky play that the audience walks through, telling a complete story. The mysterious Collector is traveling through time and assembling a dangerous assortment of twenty objects - cursed items, magical talismans, futuristic technology, and more! With these all these items, the Collector could choose to rule the universe... or destroy it! Standing in the way of The Collector is time-traveling pioneer Dr. Chronos, who will send our guests back in time on two dangerous missions to try to stop beat the Collector to obtaining the last two objects. One mission leads to the 1950s in the middle of an alien invasion. The other to 1712 to the heart of a supernatural pirate battle. A third mission leads to the future and a final confrontation with The Collector. Our twentieth-anniversary haunted tail is a time-spanning adventure in which ghosts, vampires, skeletons, demons, aliens, pirates, and more all come together in our biggest, scariest, craziest story ever! Available Roles/Character Breakdowns: A wide variety of both speaking and non-speaking roles for all ages and both genders, including Halloween classics like Count Dracula and Van Helsing along with original creations. Scripts available by e-mailing croberts@cityofmarshall.com Auditions: Saturday, August 25 from 6-8:00 Blocking: Saturday, Sept 29 (times TBA) Dress Rehearsal: Thursday, Oct 18 Performances: Oct 19, 20, 26, & 27 Compensation: None, unless you count shrieks of terror as compensation.

CastingInfo

Visit the Saline Area Players website for detailed information at www.salineareaplayers.org There are parts for 6 women between the ages of late teens to 60s.The play, written by Robert Harling, centers around Truvy’s local beauty shop and six different “regulars” who gather there. The drama begins on the morning of Shelby’s wedding and covers events over the next three years, including Shelby’s decision to have a child despite having Type I diabetes and the complications that result from that choice. Throughout the course of the story, we are able to observe the unlikely friendship between Clairee and Ouiser; Annelle’s transformation from a shy and eager to please newcomer in town to a religious fundamentalist; and Truvy’s relationship with the men in her family. This community of Southern women comes together to share their secrets, fears and love for one another, sometimes while engaging in neighborly gossip. But at the same time these women provide a crucial support system characterized by humor, even in the darkest moments. When tragedy strikes, it is the familiar comfort of Truvy’s salon where they seek the solace and comfort that, ultimately, sees them through.

CastingInfo

For the audition please prepare a song (preferably in English, and not from the show). Please come dressed to move as there will be a dance audition. Synopsis: Based on Sam Raimi’s 80s cult classic films, EVIL DEAD tells the tale of 5 college students who travel to a cabin in the woods and accidentally unleash an evil force. And although it may sound like a horror story, it’s not! The songs are hilariously campy and the show is bursting with music, fun, and a liberal amount of blood. Note: If you are not familiar with the show, go become familiar with the movies EVIL DEAD, EVIL DEAD 2, and ARMY OF DARKNESS. Characters Ash (Male – College student, Tenor/Baritone): The hero and iconic character of the musical. This devoted S-Mart housewares employee evolves over the course of the show from a humble college student to a wise cracking deadite slayer with a chainsaw and 12 gauge “boomstick.” Actor will need to be able to channel Bruce Campbell. Linda (Female – College student, Mezzo-Soprano): The prototypical girl next door. Linda is sweet, thoughtful, and completely devoted to Ash, until she turns evil and tries to kill him. She laughs an annoyingly inordinate amount of time after transforming. Cheryl (Female – College student, Mezzo-Soprano): Ash’s sister and the odd woman out in the group. Looking to spend a week relaxing, she is the recipient of Scotty’s jokes and torment. The only one to sense the evil surrounding the cabin, she is the first to be possessed, turning her into an aggressive, foul mouthed demon that speaks in very bad puns. Spends the majority of the show locked in the cellar. Scotty (Male – College student, Tenor/Baritone): Good looking, cocky, a prankster and Ash’s best friend. Thinks himself the brave one until confronted with evil and flees. He returns later to be killed, and then again in the second act to lead the deadites. (May also play Professor Knowby.) Shelly (Female – College student, Mezzo-Soprano): Sexy, easy, and not too smart. She is Scotty’s latest fling and looking to party. Just because she becomes an evil demon doesn’t mean she can’t look good doing it! Annie (Female – Mezzo-Soprano): Quite the overbearing explorer who finds missing pages to the Necronomicon and wants to reunite with her father to continue their research. Very bossy and drawn to Ash. Must be comfortable in a tear-away, fairly revealing costume. Ed (Male – Baritone/Bass): Annie’s coworker, boyfriend, and doormat. He travels with her to the cabin to proceed with their research of the book of the dead. (May also play the part of the Moose.) Fake Shemp (Male Non-singing): This role is basically all of the other roles in the show… the severed hand, the headless body, etc. Jake (Male – Tenor/Baritone): Stereotypical Southerner and reliable enough to help Annie and Ed find the path to the cabin, but too stupid and stubborn to listen to reason that will keep him alive. Moose (Male – Tenor/Baritone): A possessed, singing, Candarian Demon moose head! That alone makes it awesome. Actor will need to work the puppet as well as sing. Ability to sound like Bullwinkle a plus. (May be doubled with another role.) Professor Knowby (Non-singing): Annie’s father and researcher of the Necronomicon. Traveled to cabin to continue his research on the book and mistakenly released the evil that dwelled within the woods. He appears twice in the show but is heard at various times as a Voice-Over recording on the tape. (May be doubled with another role.) Directed by Jason Smith Music Direction by Jonathan Sills

CastingInfo

Sides will be provided at the audition and you may be asked to read with a scene partner. It is recommended that you bring a headshot or resume, but is not required for auditions. You only need to audition once on one of the two days listed. Callbacks are not currently scheduled. Synopsis: 16-year-old Berdie is no stranger to lying, stealing, and sex. Her other-side-of-the-tracks charm gets men twice her age into bed and, secretly, the cash out of their pockets. Before her victims know it, she’s gone off into the night, never to be seen again. But when Phillip, a recently divorced, laid-off high school teacher, takes special interest in Berdie after a night of wrought seduction, Berdie is forced to confront more realities than just the promiscuity of her young life. Somewhere off the freeway in the desolate Midwest, a truck stop diner sits—inside of it, a play which delves into the emotional imprisonment of characters fighting for a getaway. Characters Berdie – (16 years old, Female) – The 16 year old protagonist of the show is stubborn and rebellious but also a highly intelligent and sensitive teenager. She is often despised by the hypocrisy of the adult world and uses cynicism and sarcasm to protect herself from pain and disappointment. Nora – (Late 20s, Female) – Birdie’s compassionate and loving co-worker at the truck stop diner who often acts as both a maternal figure and confidant to the troubled teen. She wants to help Birdie but is usually unsure of how to do just that. Sandra – (Late 30s/Early 40s, Female) – Phillip’s wife who struggles to forgive her husband for his childish behavior and to repair their own dysfunctional family. Charlie – (Late 20s, Male) – Nora’s goofy and sweet longtime boyfriend who also works at the truck stop diner. He is frustrated with Birdie’s reckless behavior but understands that she is a part of life at the diner. Phillip – (Late 30s/early 40s, Male) – The emotionally broken, former high school teacher attempts to create a bond with Birdie, romantically or otherwise, but struggles with his own hypocrisy and is just as uncomfortable with his weaknesses like the troubled 16 year old. Ernie – (50s, Male) – Birdie’s tired and estranged father who only briefly appears but serves as a reminder to Birdie of the disappointment that comes with adulthood. How to Apply If you’re interested in auditioning for one of these roles, it is preferred that you RSVP ahead of time to confirm your date/time but we also welcome walk-ins. Please send all materials (resumes, headshots, etc) and RSVPs to rubygr@umich.edu.

THE PLAY: When her parents took her on a vacation to the Scottish isles as a young girl, Mary Rose inexplicably disappeared on a small island. Given up for dead, she returned a month later, with no memory of being gone, or of any time having passed. As she grows up, she maintains an unusual childlike nature. She marries her childhood sweetheart and has a son, both of whom she loves greatly, but this can't stop the island from calling her back, this time for twenty-five years. When she finally does return, she has not aged, and she can't understand what time has done to her parents and husband, and wants only to find her baby boy, who is long since grown and run away. Past life, she continues to search the house for her baby boy, but "there's worse things than not finding what you're looking for - there's finding them so different from what you had hoped."

He's dealing with a spoiled undergrad, fending off romantic advances from a revolutionary Marxist, and surreptitiously dating a scruffy grad student, all while his school struggles with debt—and now the administration has seen fit to inform him that his department, somehow, is being acquired by a financier who behaves like the love child of Dan Quayle and Hannibal Lecter. Mustering his meager forces, Professor Steinway decides to defend his department to the death. Needless to say, over the course of two baffling days in his office, his difficult situation rapidly takes a couple of turns for the worse.

CastingInfo

Painting Churches by Tina Howe is a poetic elegy, a simultaneously harsh and humorous portrait of family dynamics, and a powerful affirmation of love in the face of adversity.  Margaret Church comes home to help her parents pack up their elegant Beacon Street home.  They plan to retire to Cape Cod.  A portrait artist on the verge of national importance, Margaret  is eager to paint her parents in their beautiful home before they move.  Her father is an eminent poet who has slipped into senility; her mother is a narcissistic Bohemian Boston Brahmin with a sharp wit and zest for living.  As the move and the painting progress, a delightful and searing portrait of the entire family emerges.  There is pain.  There is loss.  But in the end, there is beauty, poetry, hope and love.

Show dates are Sep 20, 21, 22, 23–27, 28, 29.  Audition dates and times are June 17 and 18 from 7-9:30pm at the RAC, with callbacks as needed on June 19 at 7pm. Auditions will be cold readings from the script. If you are unable to make these times but still interested in auditioning, contact Laura Bird at lbirdhouse@comcast.net.  A list of potential audition readings is also available from Laura upon request.

There are 2 women and 1 man in the cast.  FANNY CHURCH  is a Bostonian from a fine old family, in her 60s.  GARDNER CHURCH is her husband, an eminent New England poet from a finer family, in his 70s.  MAGARET CHURCH is their daughter, a painter, in her early 30s.

It is very important to bring your schedule from June 17- September 29 to auditions.  This is an exceptionally long rehearsal period, but don’t worry that we will be rehearsing 6-7 days a week for 3 months.  The extra time will give us flexibility to work around family vacations and extra time for a the higher line burden of a 3-person show.  The structure of the script is such that it is nearly impossible to have a productive rehearsal without the entire cast present, so as accurate a picture of your schedule as is humanly possible is vital to the casting process.

Anything Goes tells the story of Billy, an ambitious stowaway aboard a luxury liner, and his quest for love. The fact that the object of Billy’s affection, Hope, is engaged to someone else doesn’t get in the way of Billy’s mission. Nightclub singers, gangsters, and socialites all enter into the fray, and chaos—and a lot of singing and dancing—ensues. There are featured roles for nine women and five men ages 18-70, plus an ensemble. Those auditioning need attend only one of the regular auditions but should be available for callbacks. All should be prepared to dance, and should prepare and bring sheet music for 16 bars of a Broadway-style song. A small children’s ensemble of up to 8 children ages 5 and up will also be cast. Children’s auditions are from 6:30-7:00pm on Sunday, June 17 and Wednesday, June 20 with call backs as needed at 6:30pm on Thursday, June 21. Children should be prepared to sing “Happy Birthday” and do some basic movement. A complimentary pre-audition tap dance workshop will take place at Swing City Dance Studio, 1960 S. Industrial Suites E & F on Monday, June 11 at 7pm. Pre-registration is required via email: castshow@a2ct.org. Please indicate skill level in the pre-registration email: absolute beginner, brushing up old tap dance skills, or fine-tuning strong skills. A selection of tap shoes is available at the studio for individuals who do not have their own.

Auditions are by appointment only. Walk-ins will not be seen. For more information about our theatre, visit carriagehousetheatre.weebly.com. Characters: ROSANNAH DELUCE, in her twenties. She is filled with rage and has good manners. HENRY HARRY, in his late twenties. Feelings have been tamped down hard and deep in him, but they are there. The Play: The place is a remote cabin in the wilds of Alaska. As a blizzard rages outside, a lonely figure, Henry Harry, lies sleeping under a heap of blankets. Suddenly, he is awakened by the insistent knocking of an unexpected visitor—who turns out to be Rosannah DeLuce, a distraught young woman who has fled all the way from Arizona to escape her impending marriage, and who bursts into the cabin dressed in full bridal regalia. Exhausted, she throws herself on Henry's mercy, but after sleeping for two days straight, her vigor—and combativeness—return. Both characters, it develops, have been wounded and embittered by life, and both are refugees from so-called civilization. Thrown together in the confines of the snowbound cabin, they alternately repel and attract each other as, in theatrically vivid exchanges, they explore the pain of the past and, in time, consider the possibilities of the present. In the end their very isolation proves to be the catalyst that allows them to break through the web of old griefs and bitter feelings that beset them both and to reach out for the solace and sanctuary that only hard-won understanding, self-awareness and compassion for the plight of others can bestow.

There, inside the walls of this crumbling New York tavern, a young couple finds themselves caught up in what might be the biggest conspiracy of all.

Greg and Kate have moved to Manhattan after 22 years of child-raising in the suburbs. Greg brings home a dog he found in the park—a street-smart mixture of Lab and Poodle (played by a female actor) who speaks English and comprehends Greg and Kate’s words. Other characters include Tom, a fellow dog owner/lover who gives Greg advice in the park; Phyllis, Kate’s socialite New York friend who is trying to give up alcohol, but gets sloshed after meeting Sylvia; Leslie, a therapist, Leslie, who is ambiguously male and female depending on her patients' state of mind, who tries to counsel Kate and Greg about their dog issues. A Little Work: A story of two middle aged friends: Mia and Kitty. Mia teaches eighth grade English, is married to Ben who may be having a middle-age crisis of sorts and has a college-aged daughter who surprises her by coming home for the summer with her friend, Alex. Kitty, who is a minor celebrity for writing pop-psych books like The Myth of the Ugly Duckling, also comes to stay with Mia after “having a little work done,” bringing along her nurse. It’s a full house and things get more complicated when the book club comes to meet the celebrity author who thought she could hide her plastic surgery from the world. Diamant (The Red Tent) calls this outrageous, cutting-edge comedy “a mash-up of Nip/Tuck and The Man Who Came to Dinner.”

CastingInfo

The much anticipated third installment in the Tuna trilogy takes the audience through another satirical ride into the hearts and minds of the polyester-clad citizens of Texas’ third smallest town.The entire cast of over twenty eccentric characters of both genders and various ages are PLAYED BY TWO ACTORS. Along with Tuna’s perennial favorites, some new Tuna denizens burst into the 4th of July Tuna High School Class Reunion. This sets the stage for a show full of fireworks and fun from the land where the Lion’s Club is too liberal and Patsy Cline never dies. It’s been several years since we left Bertha and Arles dancing at the end of A Tuna Christmas...Did the romance blossom? Has Didi Snavley received any “cosmic” communications from R.R.’s UFO? Did Stanley make his fortune in the Albuquerque taxidermy business? These and other burning questions will be asked and answered in the side-splitting spoof of life in rural America. As stated we will be casting two actors. Actors can be male or female. Each actor will be playing at least 12 different female and male characters a piece. Age range of the characters: 30-60. We are looking for actors that are able to be flexible with age ranges and can present a range of different personalities. This is a wonderful creative show for any actor. There are no limits to what an actor can bring to each character and to the show itself.

The Croswell will produce the Student Edition of this amazing musical, now in its 25th year! Auditions are limited to students, and none can be older than a high school graduate of 2012. Generally, the Croswell does not pay for participation in performances. We do, however, produce beyond expectations, with full lavish sets and costumes, and regional theatre quality in a friendly community theatre environment. About the show: Broadway’s legendary musical has been specially adapted to meet the needs of young performers. This author-approved edition has been abridged to a running time of just over two hours, while carefully maintaining the integrity of one the greatest musicals ever written. This epic story recounts the struggle against adversity in 19th century France. Imprisoned for stealing a loaf of bread, petty thief Jean Valjean is released from his 19-year term and not only becomes and honest man, but the mayor of a prosperous town and a loving adoptive father - violating his parole in the process. The relentless Inspector Javert, who makes a decent life for Valjean impossible, consequently pursues him. Only years later, after Valjean proves his mettle during a bloody student uprising and saves the life of a young man hopelessly in love with Valjean’s adopted daughter, does the ex-convict finally feel fully redeemed. Originally adapted from Victor Hugo’s timeless novel, LES MISÉRABLES SCHOOL EDITIONintroduces a new generation to the grand and inspirational story that has touched the hearts of millions. For, within LES MISÉRABLES SCHOOL EDITION lies the universal truth “To love another person is to see the face of God” and this message is sure to have a lasting impact on your cast, crew, audience, and school alike. Casting Requirements: Character Breakdown BABET Member of Thenardier's gang of thieves. Physically frail. He is lean and cunning. C sharp(below middle C) to E BAMATABOIS Bamatabois is the "customer" who taunts Fantine into violence. He is dressed in expensive clothes. He is a wealthy dissolute young man who thinks of himself as a gentleman. He is drunk and in a sadistic mood and chauvinistically feels it is his right to buy anything, even Fantine. D (below middle C) to High D BISHOP OF DIGNE The Bishop is a good man who saves Valjean with his compassion. Don't overlook the importance of this role. The Bishop of Digne's compassion carefully establishes the premise of the show by literally buying Jean Valjean's soul for God. Low A to High E BRUJON Member of Thenardier's gang of thieves. Pysically very strong. The body of a bear and a pea sized brain. A genuine gangster, he is stupid and evil. C sharp (below middle C) to E CHAIN GANG The Chain Gang consists of Jean Valjean's fellow prisoners. There are four soloists (indicated as convict 1,2,3,4.) The overall vocal range of the convicts is low and they should be able to sing in a rich baritone if possible. Low F to High E flat CLAQUESOUS Member of Thenardier's gang of thieves. Tough, dangerous and secretive. C sharp (below middle C) to E COMBEFERRE Member of the ABC Society. The philosopher and believer in peace. He is gentle, humane, strong and brave. Low A to F CONSTABLE 1 & 2 There are two Constables with solos in the show. E to High E COSETTE The beautiful daughter of Fantine. She is strong willed and loving. She is an intelligent, inquiring, personable girl. She is not in any sense a "soppy" romantic heroine. Once adopted by Jean Valjean, Cosette lives a comfortable, if secluded life. She is challenging to Valjean, behaving always with imagination and dignity. She falls instantly in love with Marius, changing her world and her priorities. B flat (below middle C) to High C (2 octaves above middle C) COURFEYRAC Member of the ABC Society. A student. He is youthful, passionate and fearless. Low A to F ENJOLRAS The student leader. He is handsome,brave and daring, although youthful. He combines his revolutionary ideals with a strong charismatic leadership. He is described by Victor Hugo as "a thinker, and a man of action". On the barricade he physically and vocally should dominate everyone else. He should ooze with charisma, be a natural leader, be good looking, and have a very strong high baritone or a tenor voice. Remember, Enjolras must lead the students to fight and ultimately die. His death at the barricade is one of the dramatic highlights of the show. A to G (above middle C) EPONINE The daughter of the Thenardiers. She is a young girl who is streetwise and tough, but also sensitive and lonely. She is in love with Marius, knowing that he will never love her. She bravely follows Marius to the Barricades in the hope that they will die there together. Once grown up, Eponine moves with her family to Paris where they fall on hard times. Now poor, living hand to mouth, she survives by helping her father break the law. Eponine is a tragic character, hopelessly in love with Marius. She sings one of the most famous numbers in the show, "On My Own," and should therefore be an excellent singer with a contemporary edge to her voice and an excellent actress. F sharp (below middle C) to E FACTORY GIRL (GIRL 5) The Shop Girl who fights with Fantine. She is mean, catty, and selfish. She also is most likely having an affair with the Foreman and jealous of Fantine. E (below middle C) to D flat (above middle C) FANTINE Fantine is the beautiful young girl who, abandoned by her lover, is left to fend for herself and her daughter Cosette. She is rejected by society and forced through circumstances to become a prostitute. She is a brave woman defeated by life, sustained by her love for her daughter and clinging to her dignity. Sick with consumption, we witness her descent through poverty, hunger, cold, loneliness and destitution to death. She is a noble character, whose life becomes is a series of terrible events that rob her of her pride, character, and ultimately her life. G flat (below middle C) to D FARMER The Farmer has solo lines that are a bit difficult to sing. There may be additional non-singing farmers. Middle C to D flat FAUCHELEVANT The victim of the cart crash. The role requires a few solo lines and some painful yelps. B (below middle C) to E flat FEUILLY Member of the ABC Society. A worker, self-educated and an orphan. A believer in "nationality." Affectionate, warm and poetic. Low A to F FOREMAN The Foreman begins Fantine on her downward spiral of desperation. He should be virile, commanding and a bit sleazy around the edges. D (below middle C) to D GAVROCHE Gavroche is Thenardier's son. He is left to fend for himself and lives by his wits in the streets of Paris. His "arch enemy" is Javert the Policeman. He is brave and witty. Think a young Artful Dodger. Gavroche has a very dramatic death at the barricade. B (below midde C) to G GAVROCHE'S GANG Paris at this time would be full of orphans (due to years of wars and revolutions). GRANTAIRE Member of the ABC Society. A student. He is the opposite of Enjolars. He believes in nothing. Although he admires Enjolras, he loves to mock him. Witty and drunken, he is happy being with the group and the put up with him because of his good humor. He also keeps a watchful eye on Gavoche, the mascot of the group, and is most heartbroken when Gavroche is killed. So much so that Grantaire abandons his cynicism and rushes to die on the barricade. Low A to F IMPOSTER JEAN VALJEAN AND FAMILY These characters are also non-singing. This is the man who Javert believes to be Jean Valjean. JAVERT The inspector who serves as antagonist to Jean Valjean. Javert is unswerving in his belief that men cannot change for the good. "Once a thief, always a thief" is his mantra. At first glance Javert might appear to be the villain of the story, but on closer examination it is clear that he is not an evil man. He is aware that in society some people achieve control through evil and others through power of the law. He is a dedicated policeman, with a profound sense of duty. Unlike Valjean he cannot change. His attitudes are rigid and unmoveable. He is stern, forbidding and lacking in compassion. Javert should be an actor who can convincingly stand up to Jean Valjean. Low F to High F sharp JEAN VALJEAN The hero of the show. It is his life journey that we follow. Jean Valjean is supposed to be stronger than other men, and so physically should appear robust. He should resaonably carry himself as mature and paternal. Valjean's ability to change is his greatest asset. the key to his character is his great humanity and compassion. Jean Valjean is a vocally demanding role. Low A to High A JOLY Member of the ABC Society. A medical student. Eccentric and light-hearted, although sometimes morbid. His name is derived from the English word "Jolly." Low A to F JUDGE The Judge or Judges are non-singing roles. LABOURERS The Laborer has solo lines that are a bit difficult to sing. There may be additional non-singing laborers. A sharp to D flat LESGLES Member of the ABC Society. A student. Cheerful. laughing at life but unlucky. His close friend is Joly. Low A to F MADAME THÉNARDIER She is the wife of Thenardier, Madame Thenardier is as "one" with Thenardier. Together they con the world as partners in crime. They were made for each other, although she complains about him, she loves him deeply. She is coarse and vulgar, unhappy in her existence without knowing why. She is romantic, greedy, stupid, evil and larger than life. She is mean and nasty to Young Cosette and able to improvise in nearly any situation. G sharp (below middle C) to D MARIUS The handsome romantic hero of the story. He is impulsive, passionate, willful and headstrong. His moods change according to his circumstances. He is sweet and tender but also capable of great courage and compassion. In Act 1 Marius plays Romeo to Cosette's Juliet. Marius matures after the Cafe Song as a result of his experiences on the barricade. Marius should have a lovely, lyrical voice with a contemporary edge. Low A to High A flat MONTPARNASSE Member of Thenardier's gang of thieves. A teenager. Handsome and dangerous. Kills with a knife. He is well dressed, strongly built and supple. C sharp (below middle C) to E OLD WOMAN The Old Woman is a nice feature part. This is the character that purchases Fantine's hair. E (above middle C) to D PIMP The Pimp controls the prostitutes at the docks. he is mean, aggressive and abusive. The Pimp has a small solo line in The Docks. E (below middle C) to D PROUVAIRE Member of the ABC Society. A student of social studies. He is kind, softly spoken and at the right moments strong and masterful. He is also a poet. Low A to F SAILORS Three sailors begin The Docks scene. All three have solos. Low C to middle C THÉNARDIER The true villain of Les Miserables. He is embodiment of evil. That said, he should also possess a wicked sense of humor. He delights in cheating, robbing, fraud and blackmail, relishing every aspect of them with glee. He is tough, greedy, brutal, stupid and creafty and yet irresistable. He hates society and blames it and everyone else for all his misfortune. thenardier is also the opportunist and realist of the show. He is a thief, a liar, a cheat, steals valuables from the dead with no remorse. He is also the comic relief of the production. However, his comedy is based in reality and shouldn't be too exaggerated. He is married to Madame Thenardier and father to Eponine and Gavroche (although he has abandoned Gavroche to the streets of Paris.) C (below middle C) to G sharp (above middle C) YOUNG COSETTE The child of Fantine. She is the ward of the Thenardiers forced into child labor and sings "Castle On A Cloud." She is a trembling little creature, underfed, beaten by Madame Thenardier and bullied by Eponine. make sure Cosette is small and looks properly pathetic and yet warms the audience's heart who should be sympathetic to her plight. A (below middle C) to C YOUNG EPONINE Little Eponine is the pampered daughter of the Thenardiers. She does little except enter the stage and taunt Little Cosette. The role requires no singing or speaking. She should be a smaller version of grown Eponine and resemble Eponine in appearance and features. Non-singing

About Seven Brides for Seven Brothers: “Goin’ courting” has never been as much fun as in this rip-roaring stage version of the popular MGM movie, adapted by Lawrence Kasha and David Landay. Millie is a young bride living in the 1850's Oregon wilderness whose plan to civilize and marry off her six rowdy brothers-in-law to ensure the success of her own marriage backfires when the brothers, in their enthusiasm, kidnap six women from a neighboring town to be their brides. Bursting with the rambunctious energy of the original film, SEVEN BRIDES FOR SEVEN BROTHERS is all boisterous fun and romance that harkens back to the glory days of the movie musical. This show has a very large cast, and we'll be looking for strong dancers and gymnasts. Details about the roles: Character Breakdown ADAM PONTIPEE The oldest of seven brothers.

Plot Synopsis: Emily Turner (17) has it figured out: ballet is the only thing in the universe worth pursuing, and she dances beautifully. But when her parents' marriage falters and her own sexuality begins to assert itself, Emily decides to step out of her pointe shoes and take a hard look into the murky, mysterious world of adult relationships. What she discovers challenges her adolescent ideals – about her family, her future, and the cosmic importance of a flawless pirouette. Sexually naive; unsophisticated and tactless; armed only with a dancer's poise and her own stubborn confidence, Emily charts a clumsy course through the temptations and hazards of New Year's Eve in a Midwestern college town. The New Year humorously and sympathetically chronicles Emily’s journey, from self-centered innocence to a mature and compassionate understanding of her flawed parents – by way of inept rebellion, hard drink, first romance, a sprained ankle, disillusionment, and a continually thwarted libido. Principal Roles: (All listed roles are major speaking parts. No positions are paid, but actor expenses may be covered. Levels of time-commitment vary. Participating actors will receive a high-quality video transfer of the film on DVD, and be credited on screen. The movie will play at Lightworks Film Festival in April, 2012 and be submitted to numerous additional festivals and venues nation-wide.) EMILY TURNER (17): The film’s protagonist. Emily is a gifted ballerina, and a “good kid” whose sheltered worldview is challenged by her parents’ troubled marriage. She is independent-minded, outspoken, and confident – but also naïve and inexperienced. The story concerns Emily’s rebellion against her overbearing mother, her accidental discovery of her father’s infidelity, and her own awkward first attempts at sexual adulthood. We’re looking for an actor who can handle a range of complicated emotions. Dance experience is a plus, but not required. (Actors competing for this role may be asked to dance at the audition.) ALAN TURNER (40-57): Emily’s shy, soft-spoken dad. A professor of music, Alan is mild-mannered and bookish; but his modest demeanor masks a complicated character. Alan is devoted to his daughter, and she to him. His marriage with Emily’s mother, however, is falling apart. (Alan is sleeping with one of his PHD students.) Emily's affection for her dad will be seriously tested over the course of the film. KATHERINE TURNER (37-57): Emily's mom, Katherine, is Alan’s opposite. She is willful, opinionated, and ambitious. Her relationship with Emily is frequently combative, since they’re both strong personalities who take definite and unrelenting positions in an argument. Inwardly, Katherine is struggling with Alan’s infidelity; and she’s bitterly aware that Emily (ignorant of Alan’s affair) is taking her father's side. BILLY (27-32): A failed musician whom Emily meets at a bar. Billy is attractive and idealistic, but poised uncomfortably on the verge of giving up his ambitions (“selling out”) and seeking adult employment. His encounter with Emily helps her to deal with her parents’ imperfections, and to arrive at a more realistic understanding of adult relationships. DAISY (26-30): Alan’s mistress. She’s a post-graduate student in the department where Alan is a professor. SETH (16-18): A classmate and romantic interest to Emily. He's a nice kid who acts tough, but who is intimidated by Emily's abrupt sexual advances. WILLIAM (35-55): Katherine’s boss. William is a slick, sharp-dressing bachelor. He takes Alan’s absence on New Year’s Eve as an invitation to go after Katherine. CONTACT: Email Anna Paone (apaone@umich.edu) with your name, desired role(s), and availability during the two audition blocks. Headshots and C.V.’s are encouraged but not required. If you have questions, please email or call Anna at (908) 930-8200.

In one of Sondheim’s most haunting musicals, Sweeney Todd brings the gritty underworld of 19th Century London to gruesomely delightful life. Sweeney Todd, the demon barber of Fleet Street, comes home after being exiled by an evil judge who banished him and ravaged Sweeney’s wife. With the help of the diabolical baker below, Mrs. Lovett, Sweeney seeks revenge on the judge and the unwitting inhabitants of London develop an insatiable taste for “meat” pies. There are featured roles for three women and six men ages 18-70, plus a large ensemble ages 14 and up. Those auditioning need attend only one of the regular auditions but should be available for callbacks, should be prepared to dance, and should prepare 32 bars of a Sondheim song (nothing from Sweeney Todd); a musical theater song; or a mid-late 20th century American opera.

• BASIC AUDITIONING SKILLS AND SET ETIQUETTE FOR TV AND FILM 8:30 to 10:00 a.m. Acting and auditioning for TV and films is a world unto itself. There are very specific things one must do when auditioning for TV and film that most new actors have no clue about. (This includes commercials and industrial films). This class will teach the things each actor needs to know in order to give him or herself the best chance of landing the gig. We will also talk about what to do once you get the job (what to bring to the set as well as what NOT to bring, how to follow up, and even how to act on the set). This is the perfect class for the actor with aspirations to do commercial work, TV or film in a small town or a big city. • BASIC AUDITIONING SKILLS AND ETIQUETTE FOR THEATER 10:15 to 11:45 noon The theatre world is very competitive but the prepared and trained actor stands a good chance of successfully navigating this world and making oneʼs way successfully to the boards. This class is an overview of the world of theatre including preparing monologues and songs for the theatre audition, auditioning and call backs. We will also discuss cold readings, making bold choices and what to wear. The student will learn character types (ingenue, lead and character), audition etiquette, backstage etiquette and how to prepare for the gig once you have booked it. This is a great class whether you have your sights set on Broadway, church or local and community theatre. • LUNCH 11:45 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. Brown bag it and use this hour to network with other actors or pick the instructorsʼ brains about this exciting and challenging business. • AUDITION WORKSHOP 12:45 to 2:45 p.m. Knowing how to audition is the first step toward booking the gig. In this workshop, participants may bring in a piece they are working on or, if they do not have a piece, we will provide them with a cold reading piece. Each participant gets to take what he or she learned in the morning classes and actually do an audition. We will work with each student individually in a master class setting to help bring the best out in each audition piece. Each student may choose whether to do a film/TV, commercial or theatre audition. Each audition is videotaped and the videotape may be used if the student would like representation. • MAKING A CAREER IN ACTING (LA, New York, Chicago, Small Market) 3:00 to 4:30 p.m. Youʼve mastered the audition skills, youʼve actually done an audition (that will be taped and used as a sample of your work for future submissions), and youʼre thinking of making the jump to an acting city. We conclude this amazing day of classes with “Making a Career in Acting”. In this fast-moving final 90 minutes each student will get great information on making the move to a larger market with an eye toward making acting a career. Each student will learn how to have a life in an acting city, how to make contacts with the appropriate people, agencies, casting directors and acting companies. This session ends with a Q&A. The information in this class will be recorded and transcribed and each student will get a typewritten copy of this information two weeks following the conclusion of the class.

Still casting for one male actor! CAP Dinner Theater production of "Weekend Comedy" is immediately looking for a young male actor. TONY - 20's to 30's Jill and Tony are a young couple who in "Weekend Comedy" have rented a cabin in the Catskill Mountains for the weekend. Due to a booking mistake, the cabin is also rented by an older, more mature couple. It's late, no one wants to leave, and they end up sharing the cabin - Jill and Tony take the bedroom and the older couple sleep on the sofa pull-out bed. Jill and Tony are not married. They are free wheeling and young. Tony comes from a wealthy family and so he and Jill enjoy life's finer things. Jill's cooking expertise is in frozen dinners. They listen to rock music and talk about their travels to Europe a lot. Tony and the older man in the cabin spar verbally back and forth about life and work and relationships. Tony always seems to pick on the older gentleman by constantly referring to him being of a very much older age, but eventually is challenged by the senior to a hundred-yard dash outside in the woods. Will Jill and Tony teach their older cabin compatriots to loosen up? A comedic clash of generations.... Rehearsals will be three times a week, beginning January 17th, at the Woodlands Room of the Chelsea Community Hospital. Performances will be FRIDAY, MARCH 2nd, SATURDAY, MARCH 3rd, and SUNDAY, MARCH 4th at the Chelsea Community Hospital Dining Room. Please reply to this email immediately, or forward to anyone you may know who would be interested. -- Chelsea Area Players P.O.

Looking for Five women, and Six men to play the roles in this delightful comedy of errors written by Mary Chase. Elwood P. Dowd claims to have an unseen (and presumably imaginary) friend named Harvey — whom he introduces to everyone he meets, and describes Harvey as a six-foot tall pooka resembling a rabbit. His social-climbing sister, Veta, and her daughter Mrytle Mae, find his behavior extremely embarrassing, so they decide to have him committed to a sanitarium. Many hilarious mishaps occur, as the audience is left to wonder, is Harvey really real? The Starlight Theater is located at 7370 Highland Rd., Waterford, Michigan.

The celebrated co authors of such classics as Norman, Is That You?, Murder at the Howard Johnsons and Wally's Cafe have created another surefire winner in which two couples rent the same Catskills cabin for the same weekend by mistake. Frank and Peggy have rented the Catskills cabin for a weekend. They have been married for many years and are very set in their ways. Frank is reluctant to leave home and worries about everything, especially his job in office supplies. Peggy is hoping the weekend getaway will inject some romance back into their marriage. Into the cabin walk Jill and Tony, a younger couple who have also rented the same cabin for the weekend, due to a booking mistake. It's late, no one wants to leave, and they end up sharing the cabin, with Jill and Tony taking the bedroom and Frank and Peggy sleeping on the sofa pull-out bed. Romance seems to go by the wayside as the two couples get to know each other and the two men in particular spar verbally back and forth about life and work and relationships. Talk about a generation gap! ROLES: 1 male 20’s-30’s 1 male 40’s-60’s 1 female 20’s-30’s 1 female 40’s-60’s Rehearsals begin January 17th, three times per week at Chelsea Community Hospital

CastingInfo

What was the biggest entertainment blockbuster of the '70s - Star Wars? Jaws? The Godfather? No! It was Gilbert and Sullivan's HMS Pinafore, the original theatrical smash hit that debuted in 1878 and put the 'Gilbert & Sullivan' in Gilbert and Sullivan. Great, iconic leading roles available for SATB, plus a rollicking chorus of sailors and a boisterous bevy of sisters, cousins and aunts - a boatload of fun that has never been topped. What, never? Well, hardly ever! Presented by the University of Michigan Gilbert and Sullivan Society, the oldest student-run G&S company in the country, but no affiliation with UM or knowledge of nautical propriety is necessary to audition - just a little bit of talent, a little bit of ambition, and perhaps the tiniest bit of jaunty flair.

CastingInfo

The Penny Seats (www.pennyseats.org) announce open auditions for the first show of their second season, Jeffrey Hatcher's What Corbin Knew. In the first act of this twisty, witty play, Corbin sets off a dangerous chain of confrontations and betrayals when he invites two couples to a luxury skybox he has access to whenever he's in town. Margo and Marshall are well-off, suburban parents. Thada and Arno are struggling, city-dwelling artists. The couples hate one another instantly, things escalate, and by the end of Act One, one of them meets a violent end. But Act One is only half the story. In Act Two, the set turns, and we get to see everything the clueless Corbin missed, giving us new perspective and unpredictable hilarity. Roles available: Corbin (M, 30ish) - a well-meaning architect who just wants everything to be nice. Marshall (M, 40ish) - a well-off, well-fed, writing teacher. He is having something of a mid-life crisis. Margo (W, 40ish) - Marshall's wife. A well-off, snarky, fierce mama-bear. Her son is a biter. Thada (W, 30s) - a neurotic, Bohemian-chic, wanna-be writer. Arno (M, 30s) - Thada's husband. A deadpan, laid-back artist, specializing in ultra-realistic paintings. Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script, and are by appointment only. Please contact jacqui_robbins@yahoo.com to request a time.

Set in the American West of the late 19th century, this rollicking version of Shakespeare’s’ beloved comedy finds Miss Leona, the proprietress of Leona’s Saloon, welcoming back her friend Don Pedro after a skirmish on the plains. With Don Pedro is his estranged brother Don John, who carries a boulder-sized chip on his shoulder. John’s attempts to wreak havoc with the local townsfolk finds cowboys and bar maids, school marms and school girls drawn into a convoluted compendium of mistaken identity, requited—and unrequited—love, trickery, and fun! Auditions consist of cold readings from the script, movement games, and improvs. Those auditioning need attend only one of the regular audition sessions, but should be available for callbacks. No preregistration is required. There are roles for 8-11 women ages 18-65 and 9-10 men ages 20-90, plus townspeople, barmaids, saloon dancers, cowboys, and musicians (some have a line or two, all will have “bits” and lots to do).

CHARACTER: BILL: - Bill, who is in his early - mid fifties, has lived alone since his wife, Carol, passed away three months prior. Bill is quiet and determined, like his daughter. In his bookish state, he complemented his wife's often dramatic expressions. Please contact me (Barbara Twist) at (616) 634-1220 or barbararosetwist@gmail.com to arrange an audition time.

It's Christmas-time in the small town of Fayro, Texas. the Futrelle Sisters are not exactly in a festive mood. Frankie is weeks overdue with her second set of twins. Twink is in jail for inadvertently burning down half the town. And hot-flash-suffering Honey Raye is desperately trying to keep the Tabernacle of the Lamb's Christmas Program from spriraling into chaos. The celebrity guest Santa Claus is passing a kidney stone. One of the shepherds refuses to watch over the flock without pulling his little red wagon. And the entire cast is suffering from food poisoning. The hilarious holiday journey through a misadventure-filled Christmas Eve is guaranteed to bring joy to your world! Character descriptions: MISS GENEVA MUSGRAVE, somewhere between 50 and death, is the crusty owner of the town flower shop. She is also the local town gossip, if you want something to be spread easy as melted butter talk to Geneva. HONEY RAYE FUTRELLE, 50ish, oldest Futrelle sister, sexy, vivacious go-getter, who is "enjoying" the wonderful world of menopause. GINA JO (G.J.) DUBBERLY, Frankie and Dub's daughter, 20's guileless and enthusiastic, she is your typical Daisy Duke sort of girl. Loves the life she currently lives and loves her family more than life itself. JOHN CURTIS BUNTNER, 35-55, deputy sheriff, loves the ladies just as much as he loves his donuts and coffee. TWINK FUTRELLE, middle Futrelle sister, 40's – the "black sheep," she is loud and so is her style, she is very sexy and not scared to show off a little skin to get what she needs, she is the toughest of the sisters. DUB DUBBERLY, Frankie's husband, 40's your typical trailer park husband, life revolves around NASCAR, hunting, and drinking beer. He love his wife more than he may show. FRANKIE FUTRELLE DUBBERLY, youngest Futrelle sister, 40's, pregnant with her 2nd set of twins, she is the most normal of the sisters but still out there, she is a wonderful mother and if full of wit. RHONDA LYNN LAMPLEY, 50's, flashy manager of The Dairy Dog, there is a secret about her, and likes to do whatever it takes to try to fit in. She is a chameleon, copies what is around her. She is a cross between Martha Stewart and Paula Dean. JUSTIN WAVERLY, 20's, interim Pastor at the Tabernacle of the Lamb, very sweet and innocent, doesn't like confrontation and is in love with GJ. RAYNERD CHISUM, (adult male) part-time employee at The Dairy Dog, life in his world is very simple, and there is always a place for his little red wagon. He is slow in his thoughts and speech but he always speaks from the heart. PATSY PRICE, 40-60, elegant society matron, she is a high class–well as high as you can get in a trailer park– she is never wrong, and knows everything there is to know about the whole existence of mankind.

SYNOPSIS: This is the classic holiday story about George Bailey and his wingless Guardian Angel, Clarence. The production was written specifically for The Encore by Kathie Lee Gifford, John McDaniel, Jon Huffman and Daniel C. Cooney. It premiered last year at The Encore and was a huge hit. It has since seen readings and concept cast recordings in New York City. It's Christmas Eve in Bedford Falls, 1946, and George, who has long considered himself a failure, faces financial ruin and arrest and is seriously contemplating suicide. High above Bedford Falls an eternally bumbling angel, Clarence Oddbody, is sent from above to help George out. After 200 years Clarence has yet to earn his wings. But first, Clarence is given a crash course on George's life, and the multitude of selfless acts he has performed, most important of which was preventing Henry Potter from taking over Bedford Falls and reducing its inhabitants to penury. Along the way, George has married his childhood sweetheart Mary , who has stuck by him through thick and thin. But even the love of Mary and his children are insufficient when George, faced with an $8000 shortage in his books, becomes a likely candidate for prison thanks to the vengeful Potter. Bitterly, George declares that he wishes that he had never been born, and Clarence, hoping to teach George a lesson, shows him how different life would have been had he in fact never been born. George is made to realize how many lives he has touched, and helped, through his existence; and, just as Clarence had planned, George awakens to the fact that, despite all its deprivations, he truly has had a wonderful life. This adaptation is based on the 1947 Frank Capra movie: IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE. Like all scripts of the period, it is meant to be performed in the distinct style of film comedies from the ‘30’s and ‘40’s. The dialogue and scenes move quickly—this is pre- “The Method”. If you are unsure about what that means, you should definitely check out scenes from the movie on YouTube. Other films also worth watching for style points: HIS GIRL FRIDAY, ADAM’S RIB, WOMAN OF THE YEAR. AUDITION INFO: Auditions will take place on Sunday, September 18. Sign in will begin at 6:30, auditions will begin at 7pm. Equity actors will be seen first. Callbacks will take place on Monday, September 19 at 6pm. Please prepare 16 bars of a classic musical theatre piece. Have a second selection prepared in case you are asked to sing again.

Shining Star Performing Arts Academy Presents... Disney's Alice In Wonderland Dr. Auditions!!! Book adapted and additional lyrics by David Simpatico Music Adapted and Arranged and Additional Music and Lyrics by Bryan Louiselle Based on the 1951 Disney film Join Alice's madcap adventures in Wonderland as she chases the White Rabbit, races the Dodo Bird, gets tied up with the Tweedles, raps with a bubble-blowing Caterpillar, and beats the Queen of Hearts at her own game! Roles are plentiful, including a Cheshire Cats and dozens of other wonderfully wacky characters. This fast-paced stage adaptation of Alice in Wonderland features updated dialogue and new arrangements of such classic Disney songs as "I'm Late," "The Un-birthday Song" and "Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah." Audition Workshop - Saturday, August 13th, 10am-11:30am Auditions - Saturday, August 27th, 9am-10am Call Backs - Saturday, August 27th, 10:30am-11:30am Practices - Saturday, 9am-11:30am Performances in the middle of November All practices and performances will take place at the Farmington Civic Theater. Characters: Alice - She is a spunky girl who enjoys adventures and is on a journey of self-discovery. She should be charming to the audience and be able to command the stage by herself. Alice has the largest part in the show. That said, we will be casting a strong singer, dancer, and actress. The Cheshire Cat - Cheshire Cat serves as the narrator for the story and the actor/actress who is cast need to be able to speak clearly and be good storytellers. Strong singing skills, flexibility, and comedic timing are a must for this funny character. The White Rabbit - An energetic, worrisome character that hardly ever stops moving. The actor cast in this character should exude a lot of energy continuously and create rapid-fire change of focus. Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Dee – A pair of goofballs suffering from an identity crisis. Mathilda - Alice's older sister and a non-singing role. She should be a strong actor who can speak loudly and clearly. The Flowers (Rose, Petunia, Lily, Violet, Daisy) - The snooty, mean girls who think they are the most important people in the whole world. While strong singing and acting is a requirement, we are also looking for very good dancers. The Flower Chorus – Other flowers in the Wonderland garden. We will be casting experienced dancers. Caterpillar- The Caterpillar is one cool character who needs to be able to sing, dance, and act well. He provides the heart for the story and really convinces Alice to be herself. The Mad Hatter- The Mad Hatter is the life of the tea party and should be performed by someone who enjoys acting larger than life. The actor/actress needs to be comfortable being silly. Both male and female performers will be considered for this role. The March Hare - He is the counterpart to the Mad Hatter and also enjoys a good party. A little less crazy than the Mad Hatter, the March Hare is a happy fun character who enjoys playing. The Queen of Hearts – This nasty character is the big, mean, bully of the story. The Queen of Hearts must have a commanding presence and should be a little scary, but funny at the same time. The actor/actress playing this character must be able to project. We will be considering both genders for this role. The King of Hearts - The often forgotten ruler of Wonderland. We will be casting a good actor for this role who can handle some very high-level vocabulary. Cardsmen – A stack of playing cards forced to paint roses. The Doorknob – A magical doorknob that leads Alice into Wonderland. The Dodo Bird - The Captain of the Queen's Navy. He is in command of the lobsters and other animals and is another of Wonderland's vibrant characters. The Lobster Chorus – A fun group of lobsters competing in “The Caucus Race.” For more information or to download an audition packet, visit Shiningsproductions.com or contact Cordelia Dessert at Coradessert@aol.com

CastingInfo

For the audition please prepare 16-32 measures of a song (preferably in English). Please be prepared to move as there will be a dance audition. Synopsis: Based on Sam Raimi’s 80s cult classic films, EVIL DEAD tells the tale of 5 college students who travel to a cabin in the woods and accidentally unleash an evil force. And although it may sound like a horror story, it’s not! The songs are hilariously campy and the show is bursting with music, fun, and a liberal amount of blood. Note: If you are not familiar with the show, go become familiar with the movies EVIL DEAD, EVIL DEAD 2, and ARMY OF DARKNESS Characters Ash (Male – College student, Tenor/Baritone): The hero and iconic character of the musical. This devoted S-Mart housewares employee evolves over the course of the show from a humble college student to a wise cracking deadite slayer with a chainsaw and 12 gauge “boomstick.” Actor will need to be able to channel Bruce Campbell. Linda (Female – College student, Mezzo-Soprano): The prototypical girl next door. Linda is sweet, thoughtful, and completely devoted to Ash, until she turns evil and tries to kill him. She laughs an annoyingly inordinate amount of time after transforming. Cheryl (Female – College student, Mezzo-Soprano): Ash’s sister and the odd woman out in the group. Looking to spend a week relaxing, she is the recipient of Scotty’s jokes and torment. The only one to sense the evil surrounding the cabin, she is the first to be possessed, turning her into an aggressive, foul mouthed demon that speaks in very bad puns. Spends the majority of the show locked in the cellar. Scotty (Male – College student, Tenor/Baritone): Good looking, cocky, a prankster and Ash’s best friend. Thinks himself the brave one until confronted with evil and flees. He returns later to be killed, and then again in the second act to lead the deadites. (May also play Professor Knowby) Shelly (Female – College student, Mezzo-Soprano): Sexy, easy, and not too smart. She is Scotty’s latest fling and looking to party. Just because she becomes an evil demon doesn’t mean she can’t look good doing it! Annie (Female – Mezzo-Soprano): Quite the overbearing explorer who finds missing pages to the Necronomicon and wants to reunite with her father to continue their research. Very bossy and drawn to Ash. Must be comfortable in a tear-away, fairly revealing costume. Ed (Male – Baritone/Bass): Annie’s coworker, boyfriend, and doormat. He travels with her to the cabin to proceed with their research of the book of the dead. (May also play the part of the Moose) Fake Shemp (Male Non-singing): This role is basically all of the other roles in the show… the severed hand, the headless body, etc. Jake (Male – Tenor/Baritone): Stereotypical Southerner and reliable enough to help Annie and Ed find the path to the cabin, but too stupid and stubborn to listen to reason that will keep him alive. Moose (Male – Tenor/Baritone): A possessed, singing, Candarian Demon moose head! That alone makes it awesome. Actor will need to work the puppet as well as sing. Ability to sound like Bullwinkle a plus. (May be doubled with another role) Professor Knowby (Non-singing): Annie’s father and researcher of the Necronomicon. Traveled to cabin to continue his research on the book and mistakenly released the evil that dwelled within the woods. He appears twice in the show but is heard at various times as a Voice-Over recording on the tape. (May be doubled with another role)

CastingInfo

This is an Ensemble piece, with everybody playing more than one role. Flexibility, broad colorful characterization, “chameleon” qualities are desirable. Most parts are for what they call “character actors.” First we meet them as “A Troupe Of Traveling Actors,” variously from Russia, France, Jamaica, Texas, all over. Then they all transform (like actors!) into the many characters of “The Play.” TYPES OF ROLES? All the over-the-top, extreme, daffy types you can muster! We fit the characterizations into the roles. Think Harry Potter, Columbo, Monty Python, Dudley Moore/Peter Cook, Martin Short, Harvey Korman, Tracey Ullman, Eddie Murphy, Craig Ferguson. Old movies! We are happy to present either the “Actors” and/or their “Characters” in a variety of national and/or ethnic “types.” This gives the “Traveling Troupe” a timeless, international quality, and less “authentic Dickens.” In past, for instance, Mr. & Mrs. Fezziwig were German, Nephew Fred was Aussie, Fred’s wife was Indian, Jake the Fence was from Georgia, the Stage Manager was Scottish, party guests were from Bombay, Texas, and 1890’s New York. It’s very colorful. Specific cast can be Emailed from the Director.

The Community Theatre of Howell announces auditions for White Christmas The Community Theatre of Howell announces that it is holding further auditions for its fall musical, White Christmas, to be performed November 11-13 and 17-20. Early auditions were held in June for the four main characters, Bob, Betty, Phil and Judy, which are already cast. Many featured roles remain to be cast, however, including the irascible but loveable General Waverly; Maggie, the outspoken concierge at his Vermont Inn; Susan, his precocious nine-year-old granddaughter; Mike, the frazzled stage manager of Bob and Phil’s Broadway show; Ralph Sheldrake, the enthusiastic producer of the Ed Sullivan show; Rita and Rhoda, the flirty Oxydol girls from the Sullivan Show, plus many other supporting and ensemble characters. There are roles in the show for every age from 6-106, male and female, dancers and non-dancers, and even some non-singing roles. The plans call for a Children’s Chorus which will be in two production numbers and will also sing in the lobby before the show and at intermission. In addition there will be a Vocal Chorus which will sing most production numbers but will not be dancing. Two dance groups will be used, a Tap Ensemble and a Dance Ensemble (no tap required) so these various groups will give everyone a chance to participate whatever their skills. A highly recommended dance workshop will be held on Wednesday, August 10 beginning at 6:30 pm. Auditions for the Children’s Chorus and the role of Susan will begin at 6:00 pm Friday, and auditions for all supporting roles, tap, dance and vocal ensembles will begin at 9:30 am on Saturday, August 13. All auditions will be held at the Community Theatre of Howell, 1400 W. Grand River, Howell. A complete list of character descriptions, plus specific details for all auditions and the audition application can be found on the website www.cththeatre.org. For further information and to check out scripts, music and readings, contact Linda Peasley, Producer at lpeasley@umich.edu Based on the beloved film, this heartwarming adaptation features a brilliant stream of classic Irving Berlin songs. The story concerns two WW II vets, Bob Wallace and Phil Davis, who have a successful song-and-dance act after the war. They follow two attractive young ladies to a Vermont Inn where the girls are going to perform their “Sisters” act. The innkeeper turns out to be Bob and Phil’s former commanding General, the boys decide to rustle up some business for the snow-less ski lodge by bringing in their New York variety show. Complications ensue, but of course, all ends well. Filled with interesting characters, lots of laughter, toe-tapping dance numbers, and a dazzling score with such standards as “Blue Skies,” “Count Your Blessings,” “I Love a Piano,” and “White Christmas,” this is a show that will appeal to the whole family.

CastingInfo

Carriage House Theatre is a new summer theatre company in Ann Arbor. Our company is mostly made up of high school and college aged actors and directors. Our space is small and rustic, but fun to work in. Inherit the Wind is based on the 1925 Tennessee vs. Scopes trial, where a schoolteacher intentionally broke a the law by teaching evolution in the classroom. William Jennings Bryan came for the prosecution and Clarence Darrow came for the defense in what became one of the biggest legal battles of the century. The play was written a few decades later, primarily as a protest against McCarthyism. The play is being done with only 13 actors (the original script has over 30), so everyone is constantly involved and plays multiple characters. I have already cast the majority of the show, but I'm looking for 3 more men and two more women to fill out the cast. We're using a young cast, so to fit with the show, I'm only looking for people who are or look younger than 24.

Hill convinces the townspeople that unless they start a boys band the town youth are doomed. Although he doesn’t know one note from the next he vows to organize the band after he sells them instruments and expensive uniforms. Aside from conning townspeople, Harold Hill keeps busy by buttering up the music teacher, Marian, the librarian.

CastingInfo

In Action, by Sam Shepard, two men and two women, who are only partially formed characters in a partially imagined location, are trying to find something to do—an action that will give them meaning. The Actor’s Nightmare, by Christopher Durang, was inspired by the well known dream that many people in professional and amateur theatre have: that they go must perform in a play that they have inexplicably never been to rehearsals for, and for which they know neither the lines nor the plot. Action has roles for two men and two women, ages teen-40’s. Actor's Nightmare has roles for two men and three women, ages teen-40. Actors who audition will be double-cast, with one role in each show. Auditions consist of cold readings from the script. Actors need attend only one of the two audition sessions. No preregistration is required. For further information and character descriptions, visit the audition page of the A2CT website at www.a2ct.org or call the A2CT office at 734-971-2228.

As if guided by an unseen hand, the hat lands at the feet of Fabrizio Naccarelli, a handsome Florentine, who returns it to Clara. This brief episode, charged with coincidence and fate, sparks an immediate and intense romance between Clara and Fabrizio. Margaret, extremely protective of her daughter, attempts to keep Clara and Fabrizio apart. As 'The Light in the Piazza' unfolds, a secret is revealed: in addition to the cultural differences between the young lovers, Clara is not quite all that she appears.

Show info and audition packets available at the CAP website http://www.chelseaareaplayers.org Show Synopsis: JOSEPH AND THE AMAZING TECHNICOLOR DREAMCOAT The Biblical saga of Joseph and his coat of many colors comes to vibrant life in this delightful musical parable. Joseph, his father's favorite son, is a boy blessed with prophetic dreams. When he is sold into slavery by his jealous brothers and taken to Egypt, Joseph endures a series of adventures in which his spirit and humanity are continually challenged. He is purchased by Potiphar where thwarting advances from Potiphar's wife lands him in jail. When news of Joseph's gift to interpret dreams reaches the Pharaoh (wryly and riotously depicted as Elvis), Joseph is well on his way to becoming second in command. Eventually his brothers, having suffered greatly, unknowingly find themselves groveling at the feet of the brother they betrayed but no longer recognize. After testing their integrity, Joseph reveals himself leading to a heartfelt reconciliation of the sons of Israel. Set to an engaging cornucopia of musical styles, from country western and calypso to bubble-gum pop and rock'n roll, this old Testament tale emerges both timely and timeless. Cast Requirements: PRINCIPALS 6 Men 1 Narrator (May be Male or Female) FEATURED 11 Men, 1 Woman ENSEMBLE Chorus of Men (doubled by Brothers) and Women Optional Children's Chorus CHARACTERS Joseph Narrator Potiphar Asher Simeon Butler Pharaoh Benjamin Judah Reuben Issachar Mrs. Potiphar Levi Dan Naphtali Jacob Gad Baker Zebulon

CastingInfo

The Penny Seats are thrilled to announce auditions for our inaugural production, Ann-Marie MacDonald’s Goodnight Desdemona (Good Morning Juliet), performing the first two weekends in August at Ann Arbor’s West Park Band Shell. Who are The Penny Seats? We are a new theater company, created with the idea that Ann Arbor deserves to be absolutely brimming with live theater in the summer time. Our mission? Make beautiful things with minimal resources. Make high-quality, entertaining, thought-provoking theater, and make it accessible to everyone. Make it downtown, outside, and make it cost the same as a movie ticket. Mostly, make it fun. Find out more at our website, www.pennyseats.org. About Goodnight Desdemona (Good Morning Juliet) Constance Ledbelly is floundering in academia. Used by her mentor, dismissed by her peers, she plugs away at her thesis alone. Constance is certain that Othello and Romeo & Juliet were originally comedies written by an unknown author that Shakespeare pilfered and made tragic by removing a Wise Fool character. When her mentor breaks her heart and ruins her career, Constance is thrown into Othello’s Cyprus. She interrupts Iago’s attempts to convince Othello that Desdemona has been unfaithful and disrupts the play entirely before narrowly escaping. In Verona, she bursts in on Mercutio and Tybalt, and reveals that Romeo and Juliet are married. Everyone is Cyprus wants to kill her; everyone in Verona falls in love with her. Part farce, part subconscious journey, Goodnight Desdemona (Good Morning Juliet) is playful and thoughtful, hilarious and eloquent. The entire play is performed by six actors, double, triple, and quadruple cast. Roles available We are auditioning only for the parts of Desdemona (who also appears as Ramona, Mercutio, and a Servant) and Juliet (Student, Soldier). Desdemona is a much stronger, more belligerent character than she seems in Shakespeare’s play; she is that girlfriend who gets mad for you when you’re dumped, makes you sing Gloria Gaynor, and offers to kill the guy. Juliet is as naively romantic as Shakespeare made her, without any of the innocence or inhibitions about lust. Audition Information Auditions will be held by appointment only, on the evenings of Tuesday, April 26 and Wednesday, April 27, in the freespace on the third floor of the Ann Arbor District Library’s downtown branch. If you are interested in auditioning, or for more information, please email the director, Jacqui Robbins, at jacqui_robbins@yahoo.com.

Into the Woods is a witty retelling, and reworking of many classic storybook characters. It has a beautiful, complicated, and clever musical score which demands a lot of attention. Auditions for the show may be as early as June, however regular rehearsals don't begin until September. Early auditions will allow students additional time on their own for vocal practice. The cast will consist of high school students (ages 14-18) so experience working with youth is a must. I need someone who is talented, experienced, motivated, and flexible, All candidates must pass a background check through the school prior to employment. This is a paid position and the pay is somewhat negotiable. Priority will be given to vocal directors who can also play piano, however playing piano is not required.

Originate a role in a brand new play! Parts for 4 men and 3 women, ages 20 to 50. The story of a couple guys in the airforce who operate drone planes on the other side of the world, party, and never miss their kids' soccer games. DC and Habib were awesome video gamers, enlisted by the Air Force to remotely operate drone bombers, or “Reapers” in the Middle East. Every morning they go off to war in the greater Las Vegas area, and in the evening they come home to suburbia. That is until one of their missions becomes front page news, when it is discovered they bombed the wrong people... In his thought-provoking world premier work, this Ann Arbor playwright takes a look at what goes on "behind the scenes" in our thoroughly modern military.

Roles for 2 men and 2 women, 30s-50s. Synopsis of play: A gay community in Fire Island provides an unlikely setting for two straight couples. Sally, married to Sam, a New Jersey contractor, has inherited the house from her brother who died of AIDS. Sam's hyperkinetic sister, Chloe, and her smug, aristocratic husband, John, have arrived for the Fourth of July weekend. Amidst the seemingly mundane activities, it becomes apparent that the two men despise each other because John has had an affair with Sally; Sally is panicked and melancholy because she is pregnant and fears miscarriage; and Chloe seems determined to drive them all mad with her incessant babble. Through monologues unheard by others, the characters reveal a desperate sense of individual isolation.

Mixed Company Troupe (MCT) is a unique concept in theater. Actors learn lines for plays that will be repeated over several months, as we take the show all around SE Michigan. A volunteer is mixed into the troupe for 20 minutes--wired with an ear piece, the she is seated a table. Professional actors appear, and the play begins. The volunteer hears cues from the director and experiences 'Acting with the Stars' as they repeat them. Plot summaries available on website. Pay per show provided. We are particularly looking for a male actor at this time in an understudy role. Note that understudies quickly move to lead roles and often perform for the lead, due to blackout dates.

The Genetic Opera shadow cast performances by the best shadow cast performers in Michigan; then you know this will be the event to be at this year. For those of you who don't know what a Shadow Cast is, it's a type of theatre where the cast performs Screen Accurate movement while the feature is played on a giant screen behind them. What puts Painted Proteges above other shadow cast groups is that they not only perform screen accurate movement, but sing and speak every line. Live theatre and a movie: how can you say no? We will be looking for 10 males and 10 females to play various parts, many of these parts are double and even triple casted, allowing some cast members to play two or even three roles! we are also looking for anyone who wants to help run backstage and set, lighting, tech, etc All are welcome to try out. Please be prepared to sing and bring clothes for dancing. A CD player will be available for those who bring their own music. For anyone who wants to get their name out there, expand on their talents, do something new, do something fun, for those who love to sing, love to dance, and love to show off their talents as well as do something that no one's done before, this is the place to be!

One table, which looks identical to every dinner table in the room, is set atop risers. The stage lights come on. A volunteer selected from among the diners, takes her or his seat at this special table. Everyone else prepares to eavesdrop, as they sip their wine or perhaps savor a salad. Enter the professional actor. Mixed Company Troupe swings into high gear. The director, hidden away in his sound-proof booth, reads the first line of the play. In an earbud, via wireless connection, the volunteer hears his words. She repeats the lines; she repeats his inflections. The play has begun. In Lines À la Mode, lines and acting cues are delivered on-the-spot for each volunteer performer. She or he is the one player in our dramas who remains clueless as to what's about to transpire. Our troupe's actors, conversely, know their scripts inside and out. The story will be told. Acting within her 'blind' position, the volunteer is in for some big surprises. And when a scene veers off in a totally new direction, awkward complications ensue. The laughter escalates. Our shows all use three volunteers, one for each one-act play presented. Each play in the series represents a different genre of drama, which, in turn, adds to the excitement of witnessing the unexpected. But perhaps the most fun stems from watching someone you know up on center stage. During her moment in the limelight, she must negotiate the plot twists sprung upon her, and act her heart out... full steam ahead! Fortunately for her, the director is always in her ear, guiding her every step along the way. The male role we are currently casting for is the starring role in this show, with performances in two out of three plays.

2nd ROUND OF AUDITIONS, STILL CASTING 2 GREAT ROLES... “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.” 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, or cut your hair. Rehearsals will run Jan. 2011 to March. Please bring any schedule conflicts to the audition. Please email the director, for copies of the audition scenes prior to the audition date if you'd like prep time, or come and read cold - all are welcome! Roles: 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

The longest running Broadway musical of the early 1960s, The Sound of Music marked the last collaboration between composer Richard Rodgers (1902-1979) and lyricist/librettist Oscar Hammerstein II (1895-1960). Based partially on Maria Von Trapp's autobiography, The Trapp Family Singers, and partially on a German film, Die Trapp Familie, The Sound of Music includes a remarkable number of popular songs, such as "The Sound of Music," "My Favorite Things," "Climb Ev'ry Mountain," "Do-Re-Mi," and "Edelweiss." The Sound of Music is set in Salzburg, Austria, where Maria, a postulant at Nonnberg Abbey, is sent by the Mother Abbess to work as a governess for the wealthy, aristocratic Captain George Von Trapp—a widower with seven children. The Sound of Music is still regarded by many as the most famous musical of all time. The Saline Area Players are thrilled to be bringing this presentation to Saline!
