CastingInfo

Best friends, Julia Sterroll and Jane Banbury are happily married. However, prior to their happy nuptials, they consecutively shared the same lover - Maurice Duclos, a dashing Frenchman. Now, guess who's back in town and requesting the pleasure of their company? Fortunately, Fred Sterroll and Willy Banbury have departed for a golf weekend. In order to keep up appearances, Julia's rather knowledgeable maid, Saunders, needs to be kept in the dark. So the ladies are on their own, with whatever assistance champagne can offer. This is Noel Coward at his inimitable best. The story is a hilarious cocktail of wit, charm and sharply observed human foibles. In this rarely performed gem, Coward has created a supremely funny play with wonderful comic roles for 3 women and 3 men. The two leads (Julia and Jane) are large roles with a significant amount of dialogue and (under the influence of champagne) opportunities for physical as well as verbal comedy. Auditions are being held earlier than usual to allow actors sufficient time to learn lines prior to rehearsal. Regular rehearsals will start in March. Occasional line run-throughs and character development discussions may be scheduled prior to March. List of characters/short descriptions: JULIA STERROLL (30s – 40s) a poised and practical woman, happy with her station in life. Recently, however, she has been feeling somehow unsettled and inexplicably dissatisfied. FRED STERROLL (30s -40s) an ordinary, down-to-earth gentleman, looking forward to his weekend of golf. SAUNDERS (female role, 30s -50s) a multi-talented, knowledgeable, dignified maid servant. Singing ability would be advantageous, but not essential. If you can't sing, you would need to lip-sync. JANE BANBURY (30s – 40s) a well-bred but emotional woman, given to moments of panic; yet determined to stand up for her rights. WILLY BANBURY (30s – 40s) a somewhat suspicious gentleman, dedicated to his golf and his wife. MAURICE DUCLOS (30s – 40s) a dashing Frenchman – charming, intelligent, empathic and intuitive. The ages of these characters are not set in stone. If the role interests you, we encourage you to audition. While the overall cast will need to be age-matched, the selected age range could be older or younger than the listed ages.

For the first 12 pages of this play go here: http://www.broadwayplaypubl.com/digitalplayarchivebyplaywright.htm “The fundamental things may still apply, but they warp and change color as time goes by. In his gleefully partisan new the indefatigable A R Gurney takes on the movie that immortalized the song As Time Goes By, retooling Casablanca for the 21st century. The title of his latest work is simply SCREEN PLAY, but were it actually to make it to movie theaters it would no doubt be called Buffalo. That's Buffalo, NY, which, in Mr Gurney's collegiate caper of a play, set in the year 2015, has become a way station for Americans in a blue state of mind who seek passage across the border into Canada. Rick's Cafe is now a bar named Nick's. And, as in the adored Warner Brothers' classic, it's the place where everybody goes—from Peter Lorre-like parasites who peddle illegal visas to handsome freedom fighters and their beautiful companions, as well as their sneering adversaries, who in this version are not Nazis but politicians of the Christian right."-Ben Brantley, The New York Times. "Here is another play, like 'Love Letters', designed to be read by actors, this time standing at music stands. This is also another play set in my hometown, Buffalo, New York. And I have to say it is another play with a strong underlying political theme. It is intended to be a kind of homage to, and reworking of, the movie CASABLANCA..."-A. R. Gurney CHARACTERS AND SETTING MYRNA, African-American; singer and piano player NICK, owner of Nick’s Bar in Buffalo, NY SALLY, attractive wife of...WALTER WELLMAN, distinguished political pundit and activist CHARLEY WASHINGTON, African-American; Chief of Buffalo Police. SECRETARY ABNER PATCH, Southern, Deputy Secretary of Homeland Security SWING ACTOR, to play other roles The play is designed to be read aloud by the actors at music stands, with stools to sit on behind. They stand when they participate in a scene, sit when they don’t. There is no need for props. Costuming should be equally minimal: the actors might dress as if they were auditioning for their parts. Narrative passages are divided among various actors who should deliver them without playing their main character. It helps if the actors are familiar with their lines, and if they could synchronize as much as possible the turning of their pages. In other words, while this is a reading it should have a rehearsed quality. The play takes place approximately fifteen years into the future.

For a 20 page snippet of the play go here:http://www.broadwayplaypubl.com/digitalplayarchivebyplaywright.htm “If the family is the key theme of American drama, A R Gurney's ANCESTRAL VOICES: A FAMILY STORY is a beautiful chamber work in that great tradition. The short play is staged as a concert work, with five performers sitting on chairs in front of music stands, where they've laid their scripts. The five are playing members—grandfather, grandmother, father, mother, son—of a rich WASP family in Buffalo NY between 1935 and 1942, with a brief coda from the 1960s. The son, Eddie, who goes from age eight to twelve, is our narrator, guide and point of view.... This lovely play unites the microcosm of family to the macrocosm of America at war. On Eddie's first date he brings his girl a paper `war-sage'. It's also about something in between—a city. It's an elegy for Buffalo, a once-glorious place whose fortunes are declining. The texture of life in Buffalo is heartbreakingly evoked in ways reminiscent of The Magnificent Ambersons.... This is a magical play, not a mere exercise in uncritical nostalgia, but a nuanced reminiscence full of time and change and loss and suffering--as well as joy.” Donald Lyons, New York Post CHARACTERS EDDIE, younger JANE, EDDIE’s mother HARVEY, EDDIE’s father EDDIE’S GRANDMOTHER (and MRS MITCHELL); older EDDIE’S GRANDFATHER (and UNCLE ROGER); older This play is designed to be read aloud by five actors—three men and two women of various ages—using chairs and music stands placed so as to provide the best sight lines. The stands should mask the scripts as much as possible. The play also seems to work best if the actors do not look at each other as they read, except toward the end, where indicated. Otherwise, they should focus more towards the audience, thereby including them in the event.

CastingInfo

Inspired by a real life story, this play revolves around the relationship between two people on a Texas Death Row - John Brennan, an arrogant intellectual writer and Bobby Reyburn, a naive, psychotic racist. They are polar opposites, yet make a profound connection from their side-by-side cells. This powerful drama, exploring the nature of evil & the implications of the death penalty, grips at every level and forces us to revisit our own prejudices and preconceived ideas. Characters: John - mid-40s white male. He has been on death row for 10 years. He edits "The Death Row Advocate", a prison newspaper and also writes the obituaries for the executed prisoners. He claims he is innocent and continues to fight his sentence. He is intensely private but shares thoughts in an intelligent & informed manner. He is unsympathetic & unlikeable. Bobby - 28 yr. old white male, just moved to death row after spending 6 years in solitary confinement. He was raised by a racist uncle and so is racist himself. He is partially blind, walks with a limp because of a shattered hip, and may be brain damaged. God, he says, told him to set fire to a church, killing 37 people. He tends to talk slowly and has a penchant for making animal impressions which makes him, unexpectedly, a sympathetic & likeable person. Shawna DuChamps - 48, female prison guard. She has worked as a guard for 28 years and witness 14 executions. She uses rough language & appears to be tough and in control. Sam - late 30s Pulitzer Prize winning Jewish reporter. The part is written for a man but could be played by a woman. Sam has seen a BBC special about John's newspaper and wishes to interview John for a story of his own.

SYNOPSIS IRIS, a ubiquitous but secretive system, is presented by its corrupt creators as a positive influence and community protector. In actuality, it is an invasive, voyeuristic method for the government to monitor and manipulate all of its citizens. When her outspoken brother is kidnapped, an idyllic broadcast journalist must go off the grid and evade the all-seeing cameras of IRIS to rescue her brother and uncover the motives behind his disappearance. “IRIS” takes place in the near future in a city synonymous with Detroit. Within the confines of time and resources IRIS will poetically critique our lives through the lens of a dramatic, political thriller. CHARACTERS VERA BONHAM, FEMALE, 30s: Local broadcast journalist. Candid and forthright despite occasional naïveté. Vera is the sister of Will and daughter of Joe. On a quest for truth, she uncovers the corruption in the system that has eyes everywhere. CLAIRE BURGESS, FEMALE, 30-60: Mayor. Political and charismatic. Claire is the face of the city and is leading the movement to convince citizens that IRIS is the right plan of action. Secretly, Claire is one of the dark figures pulling the strings. WILL BONHAM, MALE, mid-20s: Hacker. Rebellious and sarcastic, yet affable. Henry is the younger brother of Vera and son of Joe. His suspicious kidnapping incites worry over IRIS. JOE BONHAM, MALE, 50-70: Chief of Police. A broken and worn idealist. Joe is the father of both Vera and Will. He is the face of the police. He once had great hopes for the future of the city, but the loss of his wife and corruption of his plan for IRIS have left him a spent man. We also have a need for additional speaking and non-speaking roles, such as POLICE OFFICERS and GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS.

CastingInfo

a murder suspense drama by Patrick Hamilton based on the 1948 screenplay Alfred Hitchcock ROPE through special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc. GO TO LAKELANDPLAYERS.NET FOR MOE INFO CAST OF CHARACTERS BRANDON is in his early twenties, tall and of a striking appearance. This is more than mere good looks, more than his lithe, athletic frame, more than his expensively perfect clothes. He has the cool, calm sureness of someone who has always had money, position and the self-certainty that whatever he does is the right thing to do. His charm, his good manners, his appearance, his socially facile tongue would make him eminently likeable if it were not for the evidence of extreme egoism and the obvious touch of arrogance. More, there is a feeling of carefully controlled intensity, brutality almost; a feeling that Brandon is someone to fear. And actually, he is – because Brandon is psychopathic. PHILLIP is neurotic and the weaker of the two. He is tall, too, but younger than Brandon and better looking. His face, his body, his whole physical being spells sensitivity. Despite his weakness, he is very likeable because of a natural, boyish charm. Inherently, however, Phillip wants to be and needs to be dominated. He tries to resist this, tries to resist his quick and rather extreme changes of mood. But it is difficult for him to be facile and glib, more difficult to control and conceal his feelings. His defense is to withdraw into himself, to drink or to play the piano. He has a good musical talent but he is so unsure of himself, basically, so frightened that his eventual defeat is inevitable. MRS. WILSON’s age is anyone’s guess but she is certainly past 50, long past. Her arms and legs are cigarette-thin, her hair is frizzy and hennaed and her cheeks are spotted with the wrong shade of rouge. She is myopic and, unfortunately, must wear very thick glasses. She speaks very quietly and softly to suit the role she has chosen for herself; hostess of any house in which she is employed. Any party is her party, anyone’s business is her business. She is also a mistress of the non-sequitur and given to rather coy smirking. For all this, she has a genuine fondness for her employers and feels like a mother to them. KENNETH is a healthily attractive Princeton undergraduate. He is not overly bright but is extremely sweet and immediately likeable. Ordinarily, he is high spirited and cheerfully at ease; Brandon, however, makes him feel uncomfortable. His background of tutors, prep school and Princeton have given him manners and self-possession. He is neither gauche nor shy, and though he does not possess wit himself, he is appreciative of it in others. He is sensitive to other people's feelings and very respondent to them. JANET is two or three years older than the boys and very attractive. She is slightly over-chic in the manner of girls who work in magazines like Vogue – which she does. Her speech has the mannerisms and ornamentations of café society and so does her manner. Her family was almost 400 and had money until just about the time she entered her teens. Consequently, she now belongs neither to the class she is actually in nor the class she wants to be in. This has left her with a feeling that she must be gay and amusing to pay her way into society and she works hard at it. She would like very much to relax and be what she really is; a rather nice, simple girl whose standards are a bit of but who is fundamentally good. MR. KENTLEY is a wealthy, middle-aged gentleman with quiet charm and humor. He has great pride in his son and is intelligent and alert. His age and a neurotic wife (who decided to be practically bedridden a few years back) have combined to force him into collecting first editions. This preoccupation, plus his desire to live within himself and his general trust in people of his class mar his perceptivity. Thus, he is blind to Brandon’s real nature and to the implications of his son’s disappearance. MRS. ATWATER, his sister-in-law, is an imposing if fatuous woman. She is elegantly over-dressed and has a curious speech which she evidently believes is high society; an almost petulant, childlike drawl with affected English overtones. Mrs. Atwater comes from another city and is on one of her annual visits to New York. She adores parties and, this year, astrology. She is about as observant as the dead and is intensely interested in herself. It is clear, however, that she is very warm-hearted and thus, she is very likeable. RUPERT CADELL would be the most outstanding person in almost any room. He is in his middle-thirties, tall, grey at the temples and, as a result of the last war, walks with a slight limp. He is distinguished in appearance, manner and thought. His clothes are not new but are impeccable and somehow seem better than anyone else’s. He manages to convey the romantic feeling of another era and if you met him, you would immediately want him to like you. At the same time, however, you would sense the existence of a wall of reserve which you would know you would not be lucky enough to break through. He is completely self-possessed and elegantly detached. His manners are beautiful, his speech is eloquent and his tongue can be sharp. Yet he has such charm and humor (and a smile) that you cannot really be sure whether he means the extreme ideas he propounds or whether he is joking. Just as you cannot really be sure whether Rupert is essentially good or essentially evil.

There will be cold reading from script. Additionally, please be prepared to speak as quickly as possible. This is a very fast paced show and the actors need to meet the pace fully. Please wear comfort clothing for movement. Finally, be prepared to discuss your favorite screwball comedy. This rarely-performed comedy from 1934 features wonderful roles for women and men, including the following: CLAIRE, in her late 30s to 40s., in the midst of a female midlife crisis, to which chasing a younger man seems the obvious antidote. Think Myrna Loy or Ginger Rogers. LETTY, in her 40s, Claire's sidekick. Think Eve Arden. DEL, in his 40s. Claire's tolerant keeper, willing to put up with her infidelities as long as she'll put up with his. Think William Powell or Clark Gable grown up. NATE, in his 30s and is the object of Claire's affections, whose charm is based on his complete lack of sincerity. Think Errol Flynn or Clark Gable, not grown up. JULIE, 17, just returned from boarding school in Switzerland, and very, very shrewd. Think Ann Blyth in the original Mildred Pierce. FRANK, in his 40s, an idle rich serial philanderer. (*Special note) The actor must be willing to exercise vigorously in a skimpy bathrobe. Think Edward Everett Horton. ETHEL, in her 40s, is Frank's wife, and content to turn a blind eye to her husband's activities—not just infidelity, but pretty much everything he does. Think Alice Brady, circa My Man Godfrey. MRS. FINCH: Ageless. The neighborhood psychic. Think Margaret Dumont with a crystal ball and a fabulous hat. ROSA, 35-60, Claire's maid who misses absolutely nothing. Think a human 1930s Rosie the Robot from the Jetsons. SIMPSON, callow young nerd with a very small part. Think a very young Jimmy Stewart before he got famous. (*Special note) -This actor will also double as the BELLBOY. For all roles, singing and/or the ability to play an instrument, especially the ukulele and/or kazoo, is a plus but not a requirement.

“Hollywood And Hyde”, inspired by “The Strange Case Of Dr. Jekyll And Mr. Hyde” by Robert Louis Stevenson, is a dark comedy in which Henry Jekyll is an out-of-work washed up actor in Hollywood, still clinging to hope. He's always thought his long-dead parents named him Henry after the fictional character, but he has had to endure years of jokes and funny looks. When a film based on “Jekyll And Hyde” is auditioning, he puts on his game face and applies. Then people start dying all around him, and he begins finally to wonder just what the truth is. I'm still looking to fill two major roles: Wolfie: A slightly unhinged German who fills the vacancy left when the film's assistant to the casting director goes missing. He has secrets that will weigh heavily on the story's outcome. 20s and older. Gene: The bartender/owner of the Hollywood watering hole where Jekyll hangs out. He cares and looks after the motley group of hasbeens and wannabes who frequent his bar. 50s and older. Rehearsals and performances will be at The Mix in Ypsilanti. I am looking for a couple of actors who are ready to work on an original script. There will be changes made as we go along, and you will need to be somewhat flexible. To make an appointment, or to get a side from the script, contact me at tim@emergentarts.com.

No Sex Please, We’re British 2 act play. One set Cast: 5 men, 4 women, (1- man or woman’s) Peter Hunter: Manager of a sub-Branch of the National United Bank Frances Hunter: His wife Brian Runnicles: The Chief cashier Eleanor Hunter: Peter”s mother Leslie Bromhead: The district manager Superintendent Paul: Of the local police force B.R.S Delivery Person Mr. Needham: A bank inspector Susan Barbara The action all takes place in the Hunter’s apartment, over the sub-branch. A young bride who lives above a bank with her husband who is the assistant manager, innocently sends a mail order off for some Scandinavian glassware. What comes is Scandinavian pornography. The plot revolves around what is to be done with the veritable floods of pornography, photographs, books, films and eventually girls that threaten to engulf this happy couple. The matter is considerably complicated by the man's mother, his boss, a visiting bank inspector, a police superintendent and a muddled friend who does everything wrong in his reluctant efforts to set everything right, all of which works up to a hilarious ending of closed or slamming doors. This farce ran in London over eight years and also delighted Broadway audiences.

Kristin Condon (SAG‐AFTRA, AEA, MFA) will lead a new on‐going acting class in Ann Arbor beginning August 20th. All levels are welcome but a short interview is required. The main purpose of the class is to provide a safe space for actors to develop their instruments and material. Everyone will work every class. Each class will consist of some movement and voice work, followed by Meisner‐based exercises, and then possibly either cold‐reading or monologues. We may also spend some time at the end of class discussing industry, how to create and attract work for yourself and your co‐collaborators, and any other facets of acting and creating that interest the participants. Kristin plans to regularly bring industry professionals from LA in NYC to teach weekend workshops, and class participants will have early and discounted access. Class space is limited, commitment is monthly, and no outside work will be required. Visit www.kristincondon.com for more information on her.

CastingInfo

Lear’s story--his fears and struggles--is the story of every man. In this richly imagined take on Shakespeare’s classic tale, King Lear is a cross between Greek tragedy and a circus-dream world. With an original arrangement by Shakespearean scholar David Hartwig, a small cast of actors will play all the characters in this ensemble-driven production. Audition requirements: All auditioning will be asked to prepare a 1-minute monologue from any Shakespeare play. Those who do not prepare a monologue may still audition but will be given a monologue at auditions for cold-reading. Dress for movement. There are roles for 5-8 actors ages 18+. All actors will be onstage throughout the performance and every role is physically demanding. Rehearsals are Sundays from 6-9pm and Mondays-Thursdays from 6:30-9:30pm. There is a mandatory acting workshop on Saturday, August 24 from 1-6pm for all actors cast in the play--no exceptions.

CastingInfo

To find out more about our theatre, visit our website, carriagehousetheatre.org. This is a second round of auditions for our production of Translations. These auditions are for only four of the roles, which are listed below. THE PLAY: Translations, by acclaimed Irish playwright Brian Friel, is set in a rural school in the town of Baile Beag in 1833, when Ireland is under direct British rule. The schoolmaster’s son Owen has returned from Dublin, accompanied by two English officers with orders to survey the area and standardize place names – which means translating them into the King’s English. As the residents of Baile Beag struggle to find their place in this anglicizing world, young lieutenant Yolland begins to fall in love with Baile Beag as it is, its language, and a young woman who attends the school. Language itself, with its ability to both unite and divide, stands at the crossroads between imperial powers and cultural heritage, between tradition and progress in this complex play about identity in a changing world. CHARACTERS BEING AUDITIONED: Jimmy – Male, 60s. An eccentric bachelor who attends the school for company and intellectual stimulation. Hugh – Male, 60s. The schoolmaster, and a high functioning alcoholic. Captain Lancey - Male, 40s-50s. A cartographer for the British Crown. Pragmatic and crisp. His skill is with deeds, not words. Máire – Female, 20s. A student at the school. Strong minded and strong bodied.

Those auditioning for Max, Tito, and the Bellhop, please have a portion of an operatic-type song prepared that you can sing acapella. These characters do not require trained singing voices, but the actors should be able to carry a tune and sing loudly. If you have any questions, or cannot make these audition days, feel free to contact her at lbirdhouse@comcast.net. Synopsis: This night in September of 1934 is the biggest in the history of the Cleveland Grand Opera Company. World famous tenor Tito Morelli is to perform Othello, his greatest role, at the gala season opener. Saunders, the General Manager, hopes this will put Cleveland on the operatic map. Morelli is late; when he finally sweeps in it is too late to rehearse with the company. Through a hilarious series of mishaps, Il Stupendo is given a double dose of tranquilizers which mix with the booze he has consumed and he passes out. His pulse is so low that Saunders and his assistant Max believe he is dead. What to do? Max is an aspiring singer and Saunders persuades him to get into Morelli's Othello costume and try to fool the audience into thinking he's Il Stupendo. Max succeeds admirably, but Morelli comes to and gets into his other costume. Now two Othello’s are running around in costume and two women are running around in lingerie, each thinking she is with Il Stupendo! Character Descriptions: Max*-Assistant to Saunders. Late twenties-mid thirties. Max is earnest and hard-working, and is in love with Maggie. Maggie- Max’s girlfriend & Saunders’ daughter. Mid twenties-early thirties. Maggie is smart & practical, but yearns for something “wonderful and romantic” before she settles down with Max. Saunders-General Manager of the Cleveland Grand Opera Company. Late forties-mid sixties. Saunders is brusque and authoritarian with a short fuse. Tito Merelli*-A world-famous tenor, also known to his fans as “Il Stupendo.” Early forties-mid sixties. Tito is larger than life; full of grand gestures and grand appetites. He has an Italian accent. Maria-Tito’s wife. Mid thirties-late forties. Maria is proud, excitable, and emotional. She speaks with an Italian accent. Bellhop*-A bellhop. Early twenties-mid thirties. The bellhop is shrewd, opportunistic, and determined to audition for Tito. Diana-The Cleveland Grand Opera’s lead soprano. Early thirties-late forties. Diana is sexy and forceful; she knows what she wants and how to get it. Julia-Chairperson of the Opera Guild. Mid forties-early seventies. Julia is vivacious and charming and passionate about opera. *Max, Tito and the Bellhop sing “opera.” The actors need only be able to sing loudly and carry a tune; operatic training is not required.

CastingInfo

We are seeking actors for our upcoming production of The Hallelujah Girls by Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope, and Jamie Wooten. Auditions will be held on Monday, June 17 and Tuesday, June 18 7-9pm. Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script. No appointments, head shots, or resumes required! SYNOPSIS This comedy revolves around the attempts by a group of women in the small town of Eden Fall, Georgia, to convert an old church into a health and beauty spa. They are opposed by the self-anointed arbiter of the town social life, who wants the property for reasons of her own. The plot is enhanced by the convoluted love lives of the women in the church. We need five women who can play someone in their fifties, and one older, maybe sixty-five, and two men in their fifties, one of whom is in good physical shape. Southern accents, provided they are consistent, need not be over the top. CHARACTERS All the characters are from the fictional small town of Eden Fall, Georgia. They are real persons, not caricatures from a town with only two last names. The time is present day. Southern accents, if moderate and consistent, are preferred. The characters, with the exception of Mavis, are described as being in their fifties, while Mavis is sixty-five. If you can play the age, you don’t have to match it chronologically! The number of pages listed with each character is the number of pages they are on stage: the script is 45 pages of dialogue. Carlene Travis: has been married three times, and all three husbands have died in unlikely accidents. She has a dry wit, and some very funny lines. 44 pages Nita Mooney: sweet and simple, she works in the county records office. She has a layabout no-good son, Ronnie, 27, whom she is continually bailing out of one trouble or another. 37 pages Mavis Flowers: has been married over forty years to a husband who is oblivious to her and anything else he is not personally interested in. 39 pages Crystal Hart: is a ditz, but a cheerful one. She likes to cook, make up lyrics to Christmas carols to suit any occasion, and she dresses in costumes appropriate (?) for any and every holiday. This actress should be able to sing, and I would love it if she played an acoustic guitar or ukulele. The script has her banging away on a piano, but I think a uke would be funnier. 26 pages Sugar Lee Tompkins: worked as a beautician in a department store. She has decided to open her own beauty spa in an old church. She was left at the altar early on, and has remained unmarried. 40 pages Bunny Sutherland: is the self-proclaimed society queen of Eden Falls. She bulldozes through as if other opinions are not only unimportant, but they don’t exist. One way to approach her character would be to mix equal portions of Cruella deVille and Eulalie McKechnie Shinn, but feel free to come up with your own small town tyrant archetype!14 pages Bobby Dwayne Dillahunt: is the man who almost married Sugar Lee so many years ago, but blew his chance. He is now a ruggedly handsome handyman. Bobby looks good in shorts, a muscle tee, and work boots. His legs are favorably commented on in the show! 21 pages Porter Padgett: is an out-of-shape momma’s boy, but he has an adventurous streak in his soul. Too bad it is smothered by his overprotective mother. 5 pages In addition to assistant director and stage manager, numerous positions are available for backstage work! “Good times have begun!”

Michael joins on as assistant coach to Don, who’s been coaching baseball for years. The coaches struggle to employ their differing philosophies on winning the game and enjoying the game. Can the two philosophies coexist? And what changes when the men’s personal lives are drawn into the game? MICHAEL: The new assistant coach of a small town little league baseball team. He believes the game is about enriching the kids and having fun. He has no experience, but is very excited about his coaching philosophy and isn't afraid to speak up about it. His son Frankie is one of the weaker players on the team. Very friendly, but not particularly open about his personal life. Widower. Never goes by Mike. DON: The veteran coach of a small town little league baseball team. He takes Michael on as assistant coach after his "friend" left the position. Does not care about much beyond winning games except perhaps the attention of the opposite sex. He does care about the kids and their experience, but he believes that baseball is meant to teach them how to be winners. His son Jimmy is the star player on the team... at first. Not afraid to criticize and confront Michael on his coaching philosophy. Unhappily married. Never goes by Donald.

CastingInfo

Dionysus Theatre (The Dio) is Livingston County's newest professional theatre company. Employing performers from Michigan as well as New York, The Dio strives to bring quality entertainment to Livingston County and the surrounding areas. Seeking/Roles Available: Seeking Non-Equity performers only for the following roles: SPARKY Male, age 20 to 35, baritone. The clown of the group who is shown to have a heart. Very sharp and loves singing his tailor made solos. Wears a retainer and has a slight speech impediment. Energetic and clever. Piano skills a plus. JINX Male, age 20 to 35, tenor. The shy one. He lives his life terrified and doesn’t always remember what song comes next. Sparky’s step-brother, he occasionally gets a nosebleed when he sings above an A. Piano skills a plus. SMUDGE Male, age 20 to 35, bass. The worrier. He worries about the props, the running order, and always assumes the audience won’t like him. Has chronic nervous stomach and is oddly reluctant to perform. Wears glasses which hide his good looks and sex appeal. All roles paid. SYNOPSIS: Forever Plaid is one of the most popular and successful musicals in recent memory. This deliciously goofy revue centers on four young, eager male singers killed in a car crash in the 1950's on the way to their first big concert, and now miraculously revived for the posthumous chance to fulfill their dreams and perform the show that never was. Singing in the closest of harmony, squabbling boyishly over the smallest intonations and executing their charmingly outlandish choreography with over-zealous precision, the "Plaids" are a guaranteed smash, with a program of beloved songs and delightful patter that keeps audiences rolling in the aisles when they're not humming along to some of the great nostalgic pop hits of the 1950's. Directed by Steve DeBruyne, with music direction by Brian E. Buckner and choreography by Cara Manor. WHAT TO PREPARE: Please prepare 16 bars of a 1950s song, musical theater songs would also be appropriate.

Spirit Uncle Productions is a new theatre company. Its mission is to perform staged readings of original scripts. Our first show will be called "An Hour in the Theatre" and will consist of three scripts averaging 15-20 minutes in length. We are holding auditions for one of those three plays, called "As We Liked It." This play is written in rhyming iambic pentameter and is both a critique and a gentle parody of Shakespeare's "As You Like It". It also reveals, for the first time, who REALLY wrote the works of William Shakespeare. The play takes place in an English tavern in approximately the year 1600 and has three characters: Shakespeare, his contemporary Ben Jonson, and a barmaid. We would like to cast all three parts with actors age 20-40: two men, one woman. First Baptist Church is next to the Methodist Church (on State Street) and has its front entrance at 512 E. Huron Street and its back entrance on Washington Street. The Washington St. side is the best entrance to use and has a parking lot which you are welcome to use if there are free spaces. Auditions on May 22 and May 24 will be held in the basement and there will probably be parking available. Auditions on May 25 will be on the first floor, and there probably won't be parking available. I'll post signs and/or watch for people. We hope you're interested and we'd like to see you on May 22, 24, or 25.

CastingInfo

Update on listing further down this page. The show will be performed for one week as part of outdoor events in Ypsilanti. Exact dates and times are still being negotiated, but we should know by the time of auditions. Also, main auditions will be May 16th only, with May 17th being used for callbacks. The UFO Show will be a sketch comedy show written and performed by the performers. We have several actors and writers already involved, but are still looking for a few more. If you have a short sketch to contribute (no longer than 7 or 8 minutes) please bring it. You do not have to write to perform, and you do not have to perform to write. If you play an instrument or sing or juggle or play a mean kazoo and have a short number to perform, we want to see it. No accompaniment will be provided, though, so be prepared to go for it on your own. We will also be showing short videos as part of the production. The only premise is that the writers and performers were abducted by a UFO, and when they were released, they created this show. You do not, however, have to write about aliens or UFOs. Contact Tim Henning with headshots and resumes at info@emergentarts.com, or with any questions you may have. This is non-Equity. A small honorarium will be paid for participation, and the opportunity to make a percentage of program ads and/or tickets sold.

Alex Kip, a Columbus native now working as an actor and playwright in New York, brings this play inspired by his experiences with cancer to his hometown where he was treated for a week of rehearsal and two performances. Alex was in his senior year in the BFA Musical Theatre program at the University Of Michigan when he discovered that he had cancer impacting his vocal cords. During the months of treatment that followed, Alex first lost his voice, then learned that he had a 15-30% chance of survival. The story of his recovery, and of the surprising discoveries he made along the way, are the basis for this inspiring play. My Other Voice will open this August at the Arthur Miller Theatre in Ann Arbor, Michigan in preparation for a proposed New York run. We need professional, hard-working, outgoing people in the business who can donate time to us for a small stipend. STILL SEEKING: DR. FOSTER: DR. FOSTER Late 30's-50's. Open ethnicity. ALEX's Doctor at the Hospital, head of department. His directness can be confused for insensitivity; overall, a warm doctor. Saves his energy for the patients who need it most.

We will also be showing short videos as part of the production. The only premise is that the writers and performers were abducted by a UFO, and when they were released, they created this show. You do not, however, have to write about aliens or UFOs. Contact Tim Henning with headshots and resumes at info@emergentarts.com, or with any questions you may have. This is non-Equity. A small honorarium will be paid for participation, and the opportunity to make a percentage of program ads and/or tickets sold.

I held auditions and it turns out the Ann Arbor area was EAGER for a sketch/improv show to come in. So many people showed up! This show has already been cast BUT I am desperately seeking a co-director/stage manager. If you are someone who loves improv and sketch AND you can run rehearsals and are organized and roll well with all kinds of changing situations AND have a great attitude then I want to talk to you ASAP. I am having a blast so far and rehearsals are fun and great but I need another brain and more arms and legs! If you love multitasking and keeping all the elements, human and technical, of keeping a theater troupe going, give me a call or send me an email TODAY. Please and thank you.

CastingInfo

The Brass Tacks Ensemble is a local amateur theater group that produces plays with a focus on the relationship between actor, text, and audience--with very little else. ("No frills," as it were.) We have produced several Shakespeare productions as well as original work. This year we are producing Anton Chekhov's classic "comedy" (his word), "The Seagull." Described by its author as a play about love, the focus of this production will be the many (alas, unrequited) love relationships in the play with a special emphasis on bringing out some of the comic elements of the script that are often lost in Chekhov productions. We are seeking seven men, ages 20-65, and four women, ages 18-65, for roles in this production. There may be 2-4 nonspeaking roles as well. All roles are open. Please contact the director if you have any questions about the production, our process, or anything else.

Description: Have you seen the movie Big starring Tom Hanks? It is so fun, enlivening, charming, memorable, and poignant. Big, The Musical brings out the very best of the movie, and adds the opportunity to passionately communicate what is deep in each character's heart through the power of song. Audiences of all ages are going to love this contemporary, endearing, now classic story, brought to life onstage. It is fresh, fun, and reminds us each to celebrate our own inner child, and perhaps even more importantly, to reach out and allow our true inner selves to connect with others' and transform each other with authenticity and love. Big, The Musical is literally rejuvenating. Synopsis: The classic 1987 motion picture fantasy bursts onto stage in the unforgettable theatrical experience, Big, The Musical. When frustrated adolescent Josh Baskin wishes he were “big” and wakes up the next morning a 30-year-old man, he discovers there's much more to being an adult than he's bargained for – and learns we must all grow up at our own pace, in our own time. A witty, moving, insightful book by John Weidman and a dazzling, energetic, heartfelt, contemporary score by David Shire and Richard Maltby, Jr. makes the vibrant, funny and touching big, The Musical. The music, lyrics and book extol all the values of the grand tradition of musicals. The characters are dear and complex. It is hard to sit still when the dances take over. You can sing the songs. The words explore the interior child of the characters, and reach out to our own youthful hearts. Vision: Audiences for this fantastic show will be inspired to explore and rejuvenate their own inner child. Everyone who works on this production – be it onstage, behind the scenes, designing, selling tickets, promoting the show, or painting sets – will be inspired to look inside themselves and rediscover who they are and why joy is at the center of our being. We grown-ups often lose sight of the innocence, curiosity, and abandon of our youth. Big reminds us to embrace them. Big, The Musical turns our world upside down, and we get an opportunity to see from a refreshing point of view the joys of wonderment, discovery and self-truth. “Trust that I am enough,” we realize, as the curtain drops. This show gives grown-ups a chance to play, both as the characters and as themselves – which is really the same thing! My directing approach is very much about collaborative exploring, playing, discovering as we tell the story. Big, The Musical will be engaging, fun, inspiring and memorable for all who create and attend the show.

The music is contemporary, the relationships are well-rounded, and the story is charming. My rehearsal approach is to explore with the cast these authentic relationships. In developing characters, I encourage each actor to bring their own quirks, talents, passions and interests to play with in rehearsal, as we make each character real, well-rounded and unique. I create an open, playful, and professional rehearsal environment that is safe, fun and freeing to work in. Big, The Musical is great for our community, with a wide range of ages and fun characters. There are a number of scenes, songs and dances for younger actors. These will be filled by teens and middle-school aged children. And there are the office workers, toy store employees, and friends of Susan whom are adults. Big, The Musical, is a large, family-friendly, comedic and poignant musical that will pack 'em in and be a thrill to work on for all of us. See you in May! Carrie Jay Sayer Director

MY OTHER VOICE is based on Alex Kip's true story, offering a moving, surprising, and inspiring portrait of a young adult’s life-threatening battle with cancer. During Alex’s senior year in the prestigious Musical Theatre program at the University of Michigan, the Broadway bound singer first loses his voice, and then learns he has a 15-30% chance of survival. His world is turned upside down; yet he finds he is not alone when he meets Amy, another adolescent survivor. The crippling loss of his voice, his recovery, and the discoveries he makes along the way, shines light on Alex’s darkest hours, transforming him and the characters he meets. They discover humanity, humility, humor, and, ultimately, what it really means to sing. CASTING BREAKDOWN: CAST OF EIGHT ACTORS (Actors will be playing multiple roles:) ALEX- 22 year-old attractive Caucasian male. Very fit, starts the play with a very cocky attitude. Gets his strength and determination from his father and his soul from his mother. The love of his life is his singing voice. LILI- 18 year-old Caucasian female. ALEX's sister. A Sorority girl at University of Kentucky. Very attractive, slightly ditzy, somewhat lazy, but ultimately very smart. Not passionate about many things. ALEX has always been her hero and she would do anything for him. WILL- Mid 40's Caucasian male. ALEX's father. In very good shape. Had a traumatic brain injury when he was ALEX's age and has never quite been the same. Very fit, quirky, short temper, and often intimidating without meaning to be. Great love for his family but not good at showing it. CELIA- Late 40's Caucasian female. ALEX's mother. She is the ultimate caregiver. Has a heart of gold and would do anything for anyone. Ultimately would sacrifice her life for her loved ones. The glue that holds the family together and ALEX's main source of strength. DEVON- 22 year-old Caucasian attractive female. She's an MT student in ALEX's class, one of his best friends, and also his roommate. Extremely talented vocally and obsessed with her vocal health. Cliché MT girl. AMY- 19 year-old attractive female. An extremely warm, generous, kind soul that is later revealed to be a cancer patient. She's a musical volunteer with an angelic voice who plays guitar for patients. DR. FOSTER- Late 40's Caucasian male. ALEX's Doctor at the Hospital, head of department. His directness can be confused for insensitivity; overall, a warm doctor. Saves his energy for the patients who need it most. FLETCHER- 22 year-old Caucasian male. Somewhat attractive but not much confidence in himself. Considers himself a player though he never succeeds and constantly listens to hip-hop music. Truly a bit of a deadbeat. ALEX's best friend since high school. *Equity/Non-Equity are encouraged to audition. If Equity, you will be under a “Level II Special Appearance Contract.” If Non-Equity, a $200 stipend will be given to each actor. MY OTHER VOICE has been selected as a finalist for the Araca Project in New York City which could result in future employment opportunities Off-Broadway in NYC. Artistic director of Theatre 167 (NYC), Ari Laura Kreith will be directing the world premiere.

CastingInfo

For their third summer foray in West Park, Ann Arbor’s Penny Seats theatre company will be presenting the musical Little Me. Auditions for the show will be held at the Ann Arbor Senior Center (1320 Baldwin Avenue) on Sunday, May 5, 4-9 pm (open call) and Monday, May 6, 6-10 pm (callbacks). Any actors who are unable to attend on Sunday are welcome to audition on Monday night. Principal actors cast will be paid a small honorarium. Written by the stellar team of Neil Simon/Cy Coleman/Carolyn Leigh, the musical Little Me, originally choreographed by Bob Fosse, is perhaps best known for contributing the songs “I’ve Got Your Number,” “Real Live Girl,” and “The Other Side of the Tracks” to the catalogue of American pop standards and for comedian Sid Caesar’s Tony-nominated turn playing six different characters. Little Me is the autobiography of the optimistic, yet spectacularly accident-prone, Hollywood star Belle Poitrine (née Schlumfert), who rises from poverty on the wrong side of the tracks - to wealth, culture and a position in society, wooing many men along the way. Directed by Shannon McNutt, who has worked extensively throughout Southeast Michigan, teaches in Canton, and is a professional actress herself, Little Me will run from July 11-13, 18-20, 25-27 in West Park. All shows start at 7:00p.m. with picnicking beginning at 5:30p.m. The rest of the production team includes JP Hitesman (producer), Victoria Gilbert (choreographer), Rebecca Biber (music director), and Sean Murphy (technical director). Character descriptions and synopsis follow. Music cuts will be available on the Penny Seats website at www.pennyseats.org. Memorization is not required but please be prepared to sing vocal selections from the show as well as read from the script. If you have questions, please email info@pennyseats.org or call 734-276-2832 Synopsis Little Me is the autobiography of the optimistic, yet spectacularly accident-prone, Hollywood star Belle Poitrine (née Schlumfert), who rises from poverty on the wrong side of the tracks --- to wealth, culture and a position in society. She was born in Venezuela, Illinois and lives with her highly dubious Momma. In her teens, Belle set her sights on Noble Eggleston, who lives on the right side of the tracks, but whose mother puts an abrupt end to their ambitions. Biding her time, Belle succeeds in landing a rich, 80-year old, skinflint, Mr. Pinchley. When he dies under suspicious circumstances, Belle is arrested and put on trial for murder. She is acquitted; however, the notoriety of the trial brings her a vaudeville offer and romance with Val du Val who modestly considers himself to be the world's greatest entertainer. Further romances develop for Belle along the way, including the myopic Fred Poitrine, Prince Cherney of Rozenzweig and the imperious film director, Otto Schnitzler. Each romance, in some unexpected way, advances both Belle's career and her fortune. Each romance however, ends in bizarre circumstances ---- nothing simple for our Belle! Fred Poitrine dies as a result of lodging his finger in a typewriter, Val du Val is drowned when the ship on which he and Belle were returning to America sank. By suing the steamship company, Belle becomes very rich and Hollywood claims her. Otto spears himself on a stage dagger. Prince Cherney suffers a hearts attack after losing everything gambling in the casino in Monte Carlo, where he had staked everything on a number that Belle had chosen. Belle nurses him and in gratitude, Prince Cherney makes her the Countess Zoftig. At last Belle has social status. Finally, after much misunderstanding and partner changing, Belle walks off into the sunset with her reformed alcoholic, Noble Eggleston. ABOUT THE PENNY SEATS: Founded in 2010, we’re performers and players, minimalists and penny-pinchers. We think theatre should be fun and stirring, not stuffy or repetitive. We believe going to a show should not break the bank. And we find Michigan summer evenings beautiful. Thus, we produce dramas and comedies, musicals and original adaptations, classics and works by up-and-coming playwrights. We also provide cabaret shows, acting classes, and wacky improv evenings. And you can see any of our shows for the same price as a movie ticket. FOR MORE INFORMATION about The Penny Seats call at 734-276-2832 or Visit: www.pennyseats.org.

Lewis & Clark were one of the great Vaudeville comedy teams. On-stage, they went together like peanut butter and jelly. Off-stage, they were like oil and water. They kept it together for forty-three years until Al Lewis suddenly split up the act and retired, much to the dismay of his partner, Willie Clark. Now, eleven years later, CBS has made them an offer to reunite and be a part of their History of Comedy TV special. Convinced by Willie’s long-suffering agent/nephew, Ben, they agree to give it a try. What will happen when these two stubborn, aging comics get together again? Can they set aside their differences one last go ‘round or will Al give Willie “the Finger” one more time? Neil Simon’s hilarious and poignant script provides these answers and much more. Available Roles: Willie Clark: Stubborn and cantankerous but lovable in his own way. Willie hasn’t worked in years, but he can’t stand the idea of retirement. Age: 60 - 70 Al Lewis: Willie’s former partner has been retired and living quietly with his daughter’s family for the past eleven years. Age: 60-70 Ben Silverman: Willie’s oft put-upon, endlessly frustrated nephew/agent. Age: 30 – 40 Young Nurse: Attractive and voluptuous. Part of Lewis & Clark’s routine for the History of Comedy TV special. Age: 20’s Patient: Part of Lewis & Clark’s routine for the History of Comedy TV special. Age: 20 – 60 Eddie: Assistant director for the CBS television special. Age: 20 – 40 Registered Nurse: Willie’s experienced no-nonsense caregiver. Age: 40 – 60 Note: Actors auditioning for the roles of Willie and/or Al should also be prepared to read through Abbott & Costello's "Who's on First" for the audition.

See our website for our high-tech, production format: http://www.mixedcompanytroupe.com This show is a benefit for the Ronald McDonald House, Detroit. Pay is $100 per night. Casting for one remaining female role: Kendra (professional woman, 30 - 45 in age) Plot line: Kendra's anniversary date at a fine restaurant is disrupted by a beautiful young lady, Jasmine, who sees their table as "a lot more fun than the table where I was dining". The easily duped husband, Garrett, invites the young lass to join them... much to Kendra's disdain. After several silly games that Jasmine initiates—all of which are laced with flirtation—the wife draws to her husband's attention that his wallet and all of his valuables have been stolen. Even the shoes off of his feet! After getting back his possessions, Garrett is sent to fetch the car. Kendra then pays off Jasmine, in secret—Jasmine is actually a hired actress—for teaching her husband a lesson. This has all been a carefully-contrived lesson to deter him from the embarrassment brought on by his incessant skirt-chasing.

CastingInfo

Please email the producer at apaone@umich.edu to register for an audition slot and to be sent sides! "Death Brings Flowers" is a U of M student thesis film to be shot in February and March. Nina Marlow is lonely. Her sister Edie is bored. Both their lives become a bit strange when a dapper ghost shows up looking for romance. Equal parts fairytale, family drama and screwball sex comedy, Death Brings Flowers is a deadpan, honest, and cautiously optimistic tale of deciding who to love and discovering how to love. Nina (24): Nina is an independent spirit with a skeptical eye and wry sense of humor. She’s also terminally single and painfully shy, experiencing love mostly through black-and-white movies and spying on her neighbors. Her solitary life turns upside down when she meets a mysterious strange and decides to take a chance—the only trouble is, he’s dead. Edie (19): Edie is Nina’s opposite: beautiful, extroverted, oblivious, vain. She demands and receives the attention of every man in the room, but easy romances are starting to feel stale. Is she ready for a man who wants more from her than sex? And what happens when she falls for one who doesn’t even want that? Jimmy (25-30): The melancholy ghost of a Prohibition-era playboy. Jimmy believes he recognizes a kindred spirit in Nina, and he pursues her like a romantic lead straight out of classic movies. As hulking as Gary Cooper and as soulfully brooding as Henry Fonda, but with James Stewart’s civility: Jimmy’s personal is a curious mash-up of Hollywood masculinity which is literally too good to be true. Miles (22-27): A fast-talking barista of questionable character, who might offer Nina the chance of an affair with a real, live human being. Tom (18-22): A naïve, baby-faced police officer who falls for both sisters. Paul (19-21): Edie’s current boyfriend. A frat bro in touch with his sensitive side. Harry (28-50): A Bogart-like detective who exists in a film within the film. Nancy (19-40): Harry’s femme fatale love interest. Nigel (25-50): A diminutive, comic bartender in the film within the film. Vivian (19-35): A gorgeous, brooding patron at Nigel’s bar.

DSB works in scripted scenes or "segments" in which the vocalists sing a variety of 19th-Century American repertoire and portray various historically accurate characters such as impresario Allen Dodworth and his wife, Callie. DSB employs 4 vocalists--2 tenors and 2 sopranos--so this is a shared role. DSB performs throughout the year with its main season being May-October. There were 20 vocalist services in 2012 and a similar number of performances are scheduled for 2013. Vocalists are paid a modest premium above the instrumentalists’ rate for each service. Rehearsal fees are also paid to all musicians. Questions should be directed to: personnel@dodworth.org

CastingInfo

The Kitchen Witches by Caroline Smith Isobel Lomax and Dolly Biddle are two "mature" cable-access cooking show hostesses who have hated each other for 30 years, ever since Stephen Biddle dated one and married the other. When circumstances put them together on a TV show called The Kitchen Witches, the insults are flung harder than the food! Dolly's long-suffering TV-producer son Stephen tries to keep them on track, but as long as Dolly's dressing room is one inch closer to the set than Isobel's, it's a losing battle, and the show becomes a rating smash as Dolly and Isobel top both Martha Stewart and Jerry Springer! CAST 2M, 2F DOLLY BIDDLE - a 50ish little cherub of a woman, prone to overweight but always going at top speed. She indulges herself with anything life has to offer whenever possible - even if it's not good for her! Her creative imagination knows no bounds. She is intensely proud of her son Stephen, loves to dispense advice along with recipes for cabbage rolls and borscht and hates Isobel Lomax with an intensity usually reserved for detonating nuclear devices. STEPHEN BIDDLE - a nervous, prematurely balding but decent young man who actually enjoys producing low-budget cable TV shows, even when his Mom is the star. He is 30ish, bright and capable, if somewhat shy, but always reluctant to confront Dolly on her many shortcomings. He's not a fighter - he'd rather be a lover, but nobody's asked him yet. ISOBEL LOMAX - thinks Martha Stewart could learn something about homemaking from her. She trained at the Cordon Bleu and enjoyed a successful career, including her own show "Busy Izzy". Isobel likes people to think she has a much classier background than reality supports; she would never go out without being properly accessorized. At heart, she is a bright funny and articulate woman who has come to terms with the choices she made early in life. ROB THE CAMERA GUY (or ROBERTA THE CAMERA CHICK) - Non-speaking role except for one line!). Rob is a young "Goth" inspired person; Stephen is a little afraid of him/her. He/she cleans up the sets, resets props, carries the portable camera around during the "live broadcasts" and despite his/her appearance, is generally extremely efficient and precise. (Can be played by an actual ASM or production assistant.)

CastingInfo

Based on Kathe Koja’s award-winning novel, Under the Poppy is the story of a very theatrical Victorian brothel, owned by Decca and Rupert, business partners and childhood friends. With war looming, Istvan – Decca’s brother, and Rupert’s great lost love – arrives in town with his puppet troupe, determined to win Rupert back. But the sinister and wealthy patron Jurgen Vidor has other ideas, as does Decca, whose life at the brothel is built on betrayal and lies. Under the Poppy is an immersive performance event. Narrative is scripted, but improv skills are necessary. Experience with puppets and puppeteering is a plus. The narrative will take place continuously throughout the Ginsburg House, using puppetry, music, and film, and involve the audience as spectator and emotional participant: patrons will be offered masks to wear if they wish to be “visible” to the performers. The April performance is the last in a series of events on this model performed throughout Detroit in 2011/2012. Information on the previous performances is here http://underthepoppy.com/events/
