TO ALL PRODUCERS: VERIFIABLE NAMES AND CONTACT INFORMATION ARE REQUIRED.
I have noticed an increase in postings from unverifiable sources for "opportunities" that seem to me to be bogus. Going forward I will remove, at my own discretion, any such postings that I notice. To avoid that, be sure to include fully verifiable contact information about the organization and contact person you list. I will verify listings on a random basis as time permits.

TO ALL PRODUCERS: DUPLICATE NOTICES WILL BE REMOVED.
Sometimes people decide their posting has slid too far down the list, so they re-post the same information in order to be nearer the top. Sooner or later, that will produce a "posting war" as everybody tries to be at the top of the list. At my discretion, I will remove duplicate postings to prevent this.

You may repeat a posting in order to add significant new information, such as a change in dates, or to correct important errors. Otherwise, everybody takes pot-luck on the position of their listing.

If you repeat a posting, be sure and let me know why at annarborauditions@annarborauditions.org. Otherwise, there is a good chance I may kill your listing if I don't happen to notice what changed. I don't have large amounts of time to spend trying to figure those things out. Also, if you let me know what's happening, I may be able to publicize it to the email list subscribers.

Listings will appear strictly in reverse chronological order by entry date.

CastingInfo

You Can't Take It With You has been delighting audiences since 1936. Written by George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart, this Pulitzer Prize winning comedy celebrates non-conformity. Director: Dennis Platte THE STORY: At first the Sycamores seem mad, but it is not long before we realize that if they are mad, the rest of the world is madder. In contrast to these delightful people are the unhappy Kirbys. The plot shows how Tony, attractive young son of the Kirbys, falls in love with Alice Sycamore and brings his parents to dine at the Sycamore home on the wrong evening. The shock sustained by the Kirbys, who are invited to eat cheap food, shows Alice that marriage with Tony is out of the question. The Sycamores, however, though sympathetic to Alice, find it hard to realize her point of view. Meantime, Tony, who knows the Sycamores are right and his own people wrong, will not give her up, and in the end Mr. Kirby is converted to the happy madness of the Sycamores, particularly since he happens in during a visit by an ex-Grand Duchess, earning her living as a waitress. No mention has as yet been made of the strange activities of certain members of the household engaged in the manufacture of fireworks; nor of the printing press set up in the parlor; nor of Rheba the maid and her friend Donald; nor of Grandpa's interview with the tax collector when he tells him he doesn't believe in the income tax. Penelope Sycamore Penny is the mother of Essie and Alice, wife of Paul, and daughter of Martin. She writes plays and paints as hobbies because it makes her happy, but is terrible at both. Penny is a loving mother and wife who is constantly concerned with the welfare of her family. Her main goal is to make sure everyone is happy, particularly her daughter Alice. Essie Carmichael Wife of Ed, daughter of Penny and Paul Sycamore, Granddaughter of Martin, sister of Alice. She is childish. As a hobby she makes candy that Ed sells. Essie dreams of being a ballerina. She has spent 8 years studying with Boris Kolenkhov, but is a terrible dancer. Rheba The maid and cook to the Sycamore family. She is treated almost like a part of the family. She is dating Donald. (originally played by an African-Americans) Paul Sycamore Father of Essie and Alice, husband of Penny, Son-in-law of Martin. He is a tinkerer who manufactures fireworks in the basement with the help of his assistant Mr. De Pinna. His hobby is playing with erector sets. Mr. De Pinna The ice man who came inside to speak to Paul eight years before, and never left. He helps Mr. Sycamore build fireworks, and moonlights as a model in Mrs. Sycamore's paintings. Ed Carmichael Husband of Essie, son-in-law of Paul and Penny. He is a xylophone player, and distributes Essie's candies. Ed is an amateur printer who prints anything that sounds good to him. He prints up dinner menus for his family and little quotes that he places in the boxes of Essie's candy. He also likes to make masks. Donald The boyfriend of Rheba, who seems to serve as volunteer handyman for the Sycamores. Martin Vanderhof Referred to mostly as Grandpa in the play. Father-in-law to Paul, father of Penny, grandfather of Alice and Essie. He is an eccentric happy old man who has never paid his income tax because he doesn't believe in it, as he feels that the government wouldn't know what to do with the money if he paid it. He lives his life by the philosophy 'don't do anything that you're not going to enjoy doing'. He goes to circuses, commencements, throws darts, and collects stamps. Alice Sycamore Fiancée of Tony Kirby, daughter of Paul and Penny, Granddaughter of Martin, sister of Essie. She is the only "normal" family member. She has an office job, and is rather embarrassed by the eccentricities of her family when she has Tony and his parents at her house, yet she still loves them. She tends to be a pessimist. Wilbur C. Henderson An employee of the IRS. He comes to collect the tax money owed by Grandpa, and can't understand why the latter won't pay income tax. Tony Kirby Fiancé of Alice, Son of Mr. and Mrs. Kirby. He sees how, even though the Sycamores appear odd, they are really the perfect family because they love and care about each other. His own family is very proper and has many issues none of them will admit. He is vice president of Kirby and Co. Boris Kolenkhov A Russian who escaped to America shortly before the Russian Revolution. He is very concerned with world politics, and the deterioration of Russia. He is the ballet instructor of Essie, aware that she is untalented at dancing, but knows that she enjoys dancing so he keeps working with her. He likes the Greeks and the Romans, questions society, and is interested in world affairs. He is opinionated and often loudly declares that something "stinks"! Gay Wellington An actress whom Mrs. Sycamore meets on a bus and invites home to read one of her plays. She is an alcoholic, gets very drunk and passes out shortly after arriving at the Sycamore's home. Anthony P. Kirby Husband of Mrs. Kirby, father of Tony. He is a very proper man who is president of Kirby and Co. and secretly despises his job. His hobby is raising expensive orchids. He is also a member of the Harvard Society, the Union Club, the National Geographic Society, and the Racquet Club. Miriam Kirby Wife of Mr. Kirby, mother of Tony. She is an extremely prim and proper woman and is horrified by the goings-on in the Sycamore household. Her hobby is spiritualism. G-Man 1, G-Man 2 (Jim), G-Man 3 (Mac) Three agents who come to investigate Ed because of the communist quotes he prints up and places in Essie's candy boxes, such as "God is the State – the State is God". The Grand Duchess Olga Katrina She was one of the Grand Duchesses of Russia before the Revolution. Since then she has been forced to flee to America where she has found work as a waitress in Childs Restaurant. The rest of her family has had a similar fate.

Open auditions for adults, late teens, and pre-teen girls, will take place at 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday and Wednesday, September 9 & 10 at Liberty School, 7265 Saline-Ann Arbor Rd., Saline. You may come to one or the other audition times, and registration begins at 6:45 p.m. Rehearsals will take primarily on Tuesday and Wednesday nights plus some individual rehearsals, as needed, with mutually agreed times. The show will be performed as an interactive dinner theater at Mangiamo Italian Grill October 24 & 25 at 7 PM and October 26 at 5 PM. Auditioners should come in comfortable clothes and be ready to move. There will be cold readings from the script and improvisation exercises. Please bring a list of conflicts between the above dates. You will be asked to fill out an audition form as well. There is no need to prepare anything. Chills ‘n Fills is written and directed by Tami Hindes. The show is an interactive production made up of small vignettes, and urban legends brought to life, that are interspersed throughout the meal. The tales are full of suspense, although without blood and gore, and adult-oriented in their content. A mixture of 5-7 men and women will be cast. Actors will be asked to play more than one role, with the exception of the “waitress” who serves as the narrator/conductor of the show, and will need to be able to interact with the dinner guests as well as tell her stories. Comic bits will be used including a fortune teller, spirited call girls, and a couple of cops. One woman will need a strong eastern European accent. One pre-teen girl will be needed for a small speaking role - she can double as a spirit later on. Visit the website for more information: www.salineareaplayers.org

CastingInfo

The FARMINGTON PLAYERS have a rich tradition of 200+ shows performed over 60+ years in the Barn theater. LEADING LADIES is a hilarious farce with 5 men and 3 women. Leo and Jack are downtrodden Shakespearean actors who scheme to steal an inheritance from an old lady (Florence) by posing as her long-lost relatives, “Max” and “Steve.” But when the “nephews” turn out to be “Maxine” and “Stephanie,” the undaunted actors press on in drag. Complications ensue when Leo falls in love with Meg (who is engaged to Duncan) and Jack falls for Audrey (who is pursued by Butch, to the dismay of his father, Doc), and Leo and Jack constantly have to switch between their male and female identities. The characters prepare scenes from "Twelfth Night" as the play within the play. Additional audition info and cuts available at farmingtonplayers.org

May, a disheveled young woman, sits dejectedly on a rumpled bed while Eddie, a rough-spoken rodeo performer, crouches in a corner fiddling with his riding gear. When he attempts to console May, who is distressed by Eddie's frequent absences and love affairs, she seems to soften at first,but then she suddenly attacks him. As the recriminations pour out, and the action becomes, at times, physically violent, the desperate nature of their relationship becomes apparent; They cannot get along with, or without, one another.

We will post another audition request for the remainder later this summer (August). Demographics: Two African-American females for the English version, and two for the Spanish-speaking version.

FOR AUDITIONS: PLEASE REFER TO THE WEBSITE FOR EXCERPTS THAT WILL BE REQUIRED FOR AUDITIONS The King and I is based on “Anna and the King of Siam” by Margaret Landon. The backdrop of 1862 Siam works as a dazzling and exotic backdrop following the story of Anna Leonowens, a hard headed English schoolteacher, who is summoned by the King of Siam. His summoning is necessary due to his conflict between keeping ancient customs and trying to westernize his culturally based country. The ever present conflict of Eastern and Western cultures inspired this well-loved musical that has been acclaimed by critics and actors alike. Along with the cultural conflict between Anna and the King, their firm grip on their respective traditions causes constant tension, until they grow to understand and eventually, respect one another, in a truly unique love story. Along with the dazzling score, the incomparable Jerome Robbins ballet, “The Small House of Uncle Thomas” is one of the all-time marvels of the musical stage! Age Range: 6-100+ Male AND Female Roles Available ALL CAST AND CREW MEMBERS WILL NEED TO HAVE A BACKGROUND CHECK. THIS IS MANDATORY BY LAW. Show Fee/ Spotlight Players Fee: $35

CastingInfo

Can you carry a tune (but not necessarily "sing")? Do you play guitar or an accordion or some other instrument? Can you impersonate Humphrey Bogart, Ronald Reagan, George Bush Sr., Abraham Lincoln? Are you creative and enjoy making props? Are you imaginative enough to take something and transforming it into something else? Then read on...or better yet, come audition! Comedic timing is essential. Willingness to have fun is vital. The play is a fast-paced romp through American history. Three actors play themselves presenting the history of America as filtered through a comedic lens. The actors step in and out of various roles while racing around the theater creating chaos and laughter. The play was written by three men and the director may consider casting against type. Casting decisions will be made by 5/21. Rehearsals will be 5 nights a week for 3 or 4 hours per rehearsal; typically Sunday - Thursday but will be based on actor availability. A partial rehearsal week may run on May 26 & 27 and June 2nd & 3rd with a full week rehearsal schedule starting on June 9. Rehearsals may be a mixture with some held on the west side of Ann Arbor and others in the theater in Ypsilanti (TBD based on actor and theater availability). If cast, you will get the script and have two weeks to get off book for an initial number of pages (since the first two weeks are a partial rehearsal week). The expectation is that you will continue to come to rehearsal off book for pages being worked.

CastingInfo

Roles available for 1-2 men and 2-3 women ages 20-50; 3 or 4 versatile actors that are capable of playing multiple roles. The play is designed for a male actor and second female actor to play all the parts except Aphra. The director will consider casting an additional man or a woman to play the role of Lady Davenant. Rehearsals: Monday through Thursday evenings with some possible Saturday and Sunday afternoons. Or, is set in the Restoration period, but plays off the echoes between the late 1660s, the late 1960s, and the present. It takes place (mostly) during one night in the life of Aphra Behn, poet, spy and soon to be the first professional female playwright. Sprung from debtors’ prison after a disastrous overseas mission, Aphra is desperate to get out of the spy trade. She has a shot at a production at one of the only two London theatre companies, if she can only finish her play by morning despite interruptions from sudden new love, actress Nell Gwynne, complicated royal love, King Charles II; and very dodgy ex-lover, double-agent William Scot—who may be in on a plot to murder the king in the morning. Can Aphra resist Nell’s charms, save Charles’ life, win William a pardon, and launch her career, all in one night? Against a background of a long drawn out war and a counter-culture of free love, cross dressing, and pastoral lyricism, the 1660s look a lot like the 1960s in this neo-Restoration comedy. Character Descriptions: Aphra Behn – poet, spy and aspiring playwright, late 20s to late 30s Jailer – man King Charles II – Aphra’s age or up to 15 years older William Scot – male spy, same age as Charles Nell Gwynne – famous actress of the era, early 20s to mid 30s Maria – female servant, elderly Lady Davenant – female aristocrat, older – played by either a man or a woman

CastingInfo

“The King and I” Music by Rodgers, Richard | Book by Oscar Hammerstein II | Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II | Based on Anna and the King by Margaret Landon | Original Choreography by Jerome Robbins East versus West makes for a dramatic, richly textured and ultimately uplifting tale of enormous fascination. It is 1862 in Siam when an English widow, Anna Leonowens, and her young son arrive at the Royal Palace in Bangkok, having been summoned by the King to serve as tutor to his many children and wives. The King is largely considered to be a barbarian by those in the West, and he seeks Anna's assistance in changing his image, if not his ways. With both keeping a firm grip on their respective traditions and values, Anna and the King grow to understand and, eventually, respect one another, in a truly unique love story. Along with the dazzling score, the incomparable Jerome Robbins ballet, 'The Small House of Uncle Thomas,' is one of the all-time marvels of the musical stage. The musical includes familiar songs “Getting To Know You”, “Whistle a Happy Tune”, “Shall We Dance”, “Hello Young Lovers”, “Western People Funny” and “March of The Siamese Children”.

Roles: Richard: a young man in trouble. 18-35 yrs. He has checked himself into a psychiatric center because he can not remember his past and he is experiencing other mental symptoms. Louise: a young woman who visits him. 18-35 yrs. She and Richard share a past. She has come to help him remember with the hope of gaining his life back. The play is 80% just these two characters during the course of two visits (a third character has already been cast). Russell Davis is not a well known playwright but his theater resume is substantial and the play is well written. The role of Richard is a challenging one in that he rarely leaves his chair and the actor must convey his mental "illness" and symptoms. Louise has a few beautifully written monologues. Rehearsals will be Sunday - Thursday nights starting in April. Rehearsals will take place initially in Ann Arbor (on the west side) and then eventually move into the theater in Ypsilanti. The show schedule: We will open on Wednesday 5/21 at 8pm. The rest of the 3 week run will be Thursday - Saturday at 8pm; Sundays at 2pm.

FOR KIDS IN GRADES 3-8 This link has more info http://www.chelseaareaplayers.org/capshows/littlemermaidjr2014.html ourney “under the sea” with Ariel and her aquatic friends in Disney’s THE LITTLE MERMAID Jr., adapted from Disney’s 2008 Broadway production. In a magical underwater kingdom, the beautiful young mermaid Ariel longs to leave her ocean home – and her fins – behind and live in the world above. But first she'll have to defy her father King Triton, make a deal with the evil sea witch Ursula, and convince the handsome Prince Eric that she’s the girl whose enchanting voice he’s been seeking. CAST: ARIEL Ariel, the heroine of our story, is a little mermaid who longs to be human. Cast a strong singer and dynamic performer in this role. Ariel has some beautiful solos but must be able to convey meaning through gesture once she loses her voice. CARLOTTA Carlotta is the headmistress in Prince Eric’s palace and Ariel’s greatest human ally. This non-singing role needs to be warm and maternal to make Ariel feel welcome. CHEF LOUIS Chef Louis is the over-the-top head chef in the palace. He is always wild and frenetic. This is an excellent featured role for a comedic performer. CHEFS The Chefs are Chef Louis’s assistants. The music in “Les Poissons” can be challenging, so good choral singers are a plus for this group. Your Chefs can also double as members of the Sea Chorus. FLOTSAM & JETSAM Flotsam and Jetsam are Ursula’s slippery spies. These electric eels are sinister and sneaky, so look for performers who can be underhanded and devious while still being heard on stage. Flotsam and Jetsam can be played by boys or girls. FLOUNDER Flounder is Ariel’s sincere and sensitive best friend who is loyal to the end. This spunky fish also has a show-stopping solo in “She’s in Love.” Flounder can be cast with a girl or a boy with an unchanged voice. This may be a wonderful role for a younger performer who is ready to take the next step into the spotlight. GRIMSBY Grimsby is Prince Eric’s prim and proper valet. He is rigid in personality and constantly trying to guide Prince Eric towards the throne. While Grimsby does have some singing to do, strong acting trumps singing ability for this role. GULLS The Gulls are Scuttle’s flock of zany “back-up singers” who help explain human stuff to Ariel. While there are three principal gulls written in the score, feel free to add as many as you need to best serve your production. The Gulls’ solos can be spoken if necessary. KING TRITON KING TRITON rules the sea and is a force to be reckoned with. This non-singer needs to command the stage as a strong leader but also show the tenderness of a parent. Cast a mature performer who feels comfortable playing father to Ariel and the Mersisters. LAGOON ANIMALS The Lagoon Animals try to convince Prince Eric to kiss Ariel. This ensemble can double as the Sea Creatures. MERFOLK The Merfolk of King Triton’s Court and can double as Sea Creatures. MERSISTERS The Mersisters (Aquata, Andrina, Arista, Atina, Adella, Allana) are Ariel’s siblings and full of personality and sass. These are great roles to showcase talented singers and dancers who can create and play six distinctive characters. PILOT The Pilot is the head sailor on Prince Eric’s ship. This nautical expert who entertains the sailors with wild tales of the sea presents an opportunity to highlight a developing performer. The Pilot has a few speaking lines, but his singing voice is most important. PRINCE ERIC Prince Eric is the adventurous prince who captures Ariel’s heart. Look for a charming performer with a sensitive nature. Prince Eric has a few small solos, but it is more important to cast a strong actor in this role. PRINCESSES The six Princesses try everything they can to win the heart of Prince Eric. Since none of them possesses the voice Prince Eric is searching for, cast actresses who can create an exaggerated and comedic personality through song. The six Princesses can double as the six Mersisters. SAILORS The Sailors are the crew of Prince Eric’s ship. They are eager for adventure and ready to tackle a storm. The Sailors can be played by boys or girls and can double as Sea Chorus. SCUTTLE Scuttle is the know-it-all seagull who serves as Ariel’s expert on humans. He is funny and off-beat. While a good singer will rock “Human Stuff,” this song can easily be spoken in rhythm. Look for a performer with good comedic timing who is willing to have fun with Scuttle’s eccentricities. SEA CHORUS The Sea Chorus is responsible for creating each world within the show. Look for performers who can move gracefully and are capable of being part of a scene without drawing focus. This can also be an opportunity to showcase some of your more skilled dancers. The Sea Chorus can double as Merfolk, Sea Creatures and Lagoon Animals. SEA CREATURES The Sea Creatures are the ensemble under water animals in King Triton’s court. They can include as few or as many performers as your production permits. There are several moments to showcase both dancers and singers in “Under the Sea.” SEAHORSE The Seahorse is the court herald for King Triton. This non-singing part is a good role for a young performer with a clear speaking voice. SEBASTIAN Sebastian is the meticulous and anxious crab who tries to keep Ariel safe while getting to lead some of the most memorable songs in the show! Look for a strong singer who can also handle Sebastian’s emotional range. Sebastian can be played by a boy or girl. TENTACLES The Tentacles are extensions of Ursula, perhaps the poor unfortunate souls who are now trapped in her lair. Look for six or eight performers who work well together and can move as a unit. URSULA Ursula is the manipulative sea witch who tries to overthrow King Triton. She is cunning and devious and will stop at nothing to get what she wants. Cast a mature performer who can bring out this villain’s humor while finding texture in Ursula’s complexity. Ursula’s songs can be challenging, so look for a singer who will feel comfortable with these solos.

CastingInfo

Synopsis: Southern Comfort is a half hour, studio-based, multi-camera sitcom. The show features a young musician Sarah, and her LA-native actor husband, Brad, who have come to stay with Sarah's family in Texas while she is home for a reunion concert. After arriving Sarah discovers they can no longer afford to live in LA, as Brad has been struggling to find work, and all his savings are gone. It turns out they'll have to stay with Sarah's family longer than expected. Can Brad adjust to southern living and Sarah's family? All roles are unpaid. We are currently looking for actors to fill three roles: Roy (male, 53)– Sarah’s father and tough, Southern workingman. A man’s man. He is proud of his roots and can be very intimidating. He enjoys having his own space, so when Sarah and Brad move in, he gets flustered easily. Brad is the opposite ideal husband for Sarah that he wanted, and he finds Brad’s habits odd. However, he has a huge soft side when dealing with Sarah and can be a pushover with his daughter. Brad (male, 28)– An actor who has lived in LA for his entire life, Brad is a bit of a pushover without realizing it, who has been lucky with small acting parts. He’s the happy, smiling white guy in the Viagra commercials or the first one who dies in a CSI show. Basically, he has the ego, but not the money. He needs to learn to adjust to the Southern lifestyle and tries to give a good impression for Roy. He has definitely brought along his LA habits with him however. Ivy (female, 27)– Sarah’s best friend. She has an excited and bubbly personality. Has always been a strong supporter of Sarah. However, she is somewhat star struck by Brad, since he is the only actor she has a connection to. She has every TV show or commercial appearance by Brad saved on her Tivo. Connor (male, 24)– Sarah’s younger brother, who looks up to Roy and tries to emulate him. He’s a big guy, like a big teddy bear, but not always the brightest. Even though he acts tough, he has a small soft spot for Brad and almost likes the guy despite his antics. For reference, here are the character descriptions of roles we have already filled: Sarah (female, 27)– Musician and Brad’s wife, who definitely tends to wear the pants in the relationship. She is opinionated and strong, and loves her family no matter what they do. She has pursued music as a career and passion her whole life, and now it is her time to become successful. Aunt Shelby (female, 43) – A long time, close friend of Roy’s and basically like an aunt to the kids, who has a happy-go-lucky attitude. Her aim is to enjoy life and keep the peace within the family. She is very good at convincing Roy to see the other side of problems and force his soft spot to show. Very supportive of everyone she meets.

CastingInfo

Roles for: 1 man, 5 women Meredith Marlowe: (22) The bride's nosy, pot-smoking sister who is very sarcastic and much annoyed with the whole fiasco downstairs. Sporting an outwardly tough attitude, she has a lot of hurt and insecurity to hide. Georgeanne Darby: (32) Tracy's "ugly sidekick" in middle school. Accepted the invite to be a bridesmaid even though her relationship with Tracy is strained because Tracy's boyfriend once knocked Georgeanne up. Trisha: (31) One of Tracy's former friends with a supposed bad reputation. She's been with a lot of guys, but not any that measure up. She is, however, a mainstream beauty. Frances: (21) The very naive and religious cousin of the bride. Mindy McClure: (37) The groom's clumsy, outspoken lesbian sister. Tripp Davenport (Griffen Lyle Davenport the third): (28) An usher who falls for Trisha. The only male in the show. THE STORY: During an ostentatious wedding reception at a Knoxville, Tennessee, estate, five reluctant, identically clad bridesmaids hide out in an upstairs bedroom, each with her own reason to avoid the proceedings below. They are Frances, a painfully sweet but sheltered fundamentalist; Mindy, the cheerful, wise-cracking lesbian sister of the groom; Georgeanne, whose heartbreak over her own failed marriage triggers outrageous behavior; Meredith, the bride's younger sister whose precocious rebelliousness masks a dark secret; and Trisha, a jaded beauty whose die-hard cynicism about men is called into question when she meets Tripp, a charming bad-boy usher to whom there is more than meets the eye. As the afternoon wears on, these five very different women joyously discover a common bond in this wickedly funny, irreverent and touching celebration of the women's spirit. An irreverent and funny look at the intricacies of friendship and the power of similar dressing. "…[a] wonderfully entertaining play…" —NY Post. "FIVE WOMEN WEARING THE SAME DRESS is a fresh-as-a-daisy comedy, funny as can be…" —NY Daily News. "Ball has the comic writer's requisite talent for dialogue that ricochets snappily around the stage." —TheaterWeek.

SUSPICION: AN INVESTIGATION OF MONOLOGUES is an original collection of 10-minute monologues by 12 area writers. Actors will be paid a stipend for their work. Character List: Cat Lady: Woman in her 50s or 60s Orchard Walker: Man in his 60s or 70s Birth Mother: Woman in her 20s Mayble Keyes: Woman in her 60s Driving Instructor: Man in his 40s or 50s Mistress: Woman in her 30s or 40s Woodcarver: Man in his 50s or 60s Mechanic: Man in his 40s Postmistriess: Woman in her 50s Medium: Woman in her late 20s or 30s Pyromaniac: Man in his late 20s or 30s Photographer: Man or Woman, late 20s Synopsis: The play is made up of 12 monologues by a range of characters from the small town of Bentlee. In ways both subtle and blatant, each monologue is related to an incident that occurred in the town years ago when an infant disappeared from her crib. The town was heatedly divided over whether the parents were somehow responsible for the child's disappearance. The baby was never found. The parents left Bentlee and were never heard from again. Sixteen years later, the church where the infant’s father was once a pastor burned to the ground. Mayble Keyes, an elderly deaconess sorting clothes for a charity event, died in the fire. On a partially burned wall investigators find scrawled in red paint a passage from Luke 12: ‘For there is nothing covered that shall not be revealed; neither hid that shall not be known.’ The case remains unsolved, but some in town have speculated that the fire and the disappearance of the baby may somehow be connected. The truth will likely never be known. Audition: • Actors should come prepared with a 1-minute monologue OR • May read selections from monologues; request sides by emailing bcox1001@gmail.com • Auditions will be held at 212 Arts Center at 216 W. Michigan Ave., Saline In association with Two Twelve Arts Center, From Around Here Productions fosters the work of Michigan playwrights.

Froggy (a demolition expert working for the U.S. Army) brings his painfully shy friend Charlie along on a trip to the American south.

FOREVER PLAID, July 31 – September 7 Directed by Steve DeBruyne, musical direction by George Cullinan and choreography by Cara Manor. Rehearsals June 28 through July 30. 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. SEEKING: JINX - 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.

Christine must decide how to put an end to this bad streak. Bad Girls is a short film produced by members of the University of Michigan's Screen Art's and Culture's (SAC) 423 class. SAC 423 is the highest level production class at the University in which students from the School of Art and Design, School of Music, Ross Business School, and Literature Science and Arts collaborate to produce a 20-30 minute short film.

Open auditions for 3 men and 3 women will take place at 7:00 p.m. on Monday & Tuesday, February 10 & 11 at 7:00 PM at Liberty School, Room 21, 7265 Saline-Ann Arbor Rd., Saline. Callbacks, if needed, will be Wednesday, February 12. You may come to one or the other audition time. Rehearsals will take place Monday-Thursday evenings and begin February 13. The show will be performed at Stone Arch Arts and Events April 4-6. Auditioners should be prepared to do cold readings from the script. They should also bring a list of their conflicts between the above dates and will be asked to fill out an audition form. The director will be looking for effective use of facial expressions and body language to effectively convey character and mood, the ability to project and articulate, varied vocal inflection, the ability to react and respond to others and, overall, energy and stage presence. The play, written and directed by Marc Holland, tells the story of a young National Guardsman who is sent to the small town of Crickwater, Michigan to kick off a World Peace Day celebration, but finds the city's fathers and mothers ready for anything but peace! He quickly sees it will take more than just a banner and a sheet cake to end the conflict in this eccentric burg. The town's widowed volunteer librarian has had an adversarial relationship with her sister for so long she no longer knows how to do anything but fling sarcastic zingers at anyone who comes close to her. The mayor married the town's most eligible bachelorette, but after twenty years, signs of stress are showing, which emboldens the high school sweetheart who loved her first, and perhaps best. And what will become of the National Guardsman? He's something of a slacker, but with a good heart. If the denizens of Crickwater are going to find any peace, they better hurry up because plenty of reporters are gathering right outside city hall! Please visit the website: www.salineareaplayers.org for detailed audition information, the audition form, and character descriptions. Additional questions about auditions should be directed to the director, Marc Holland, at nickaddams@yahoo.com or 734-975-8904.

Best friends, Julia and Jane are happily married to Fred Sterroll & Willy Banbury, respectively. 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 and Willy 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, please audition. While the overall cast will need to be age-matched, the selected age range could be older or younger than the listed ages.

CastingInfo

Between Breaths is a dramatic webseries in 13 parts, each around 5 minutes. Each episode is centered around one of the primary characters. The first half of the series covers the rebels and their initial recruitment of the 20 year old protagonist Jason. The second half gives us a closer look at the “nefarious” council and why they are the way they are. In a post-apocalyptic city-state with limited resources and a deadly virus, the distribution of wealth and materials comes into question. The series is an exercise in perspective. Many, many characters available. Interesting characters for both men and women aged from late teens up to elderly available. We are looking for all ages and backgrounds! We also are looking for a young girl around 7 or 8 years old to play the younger version of the main cast. Information on each of the characters can be found in the contact information link. Filming will take place chiefly over the weekends of late January and February, possibly into March. Scheduling is fairly flexible, as not all characters will be in all episodes.

Rehearsals start this Friday, and continue Monday and Tuesday at 7p at the Mix Studio Theatre. Show opens Wednesday 22nd at 8p and continues Thursday-Saturday at 8p, with Matinees at 2p both Saturday and Sunday. Come out, read and let's play! 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 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

This spring we are producing a new translation and adaptation by Brass Tacks Member Isaac Ellis of "Life is a Dream" by Pedro Calderón de la Barca (April 17 - 20, May 4 - 7, and May 11 - 14). The production will focus on the dream-like state of the play and the themes of fate vs. freewill and dreams vs. reality, as well as incorporate aspects of storytelling. We are seeking four men, ages 20 - 65+, and two women, ages 20 - 40. There are also three non-gender specific roles for actors of any age. All roles are open. Please contact the Artistic Director, James Ingagiola, if you have any questions about the production, our process, or anything else.

CastingInfo

Characters •Judas (Rock Tenor, low D to high E): A tortured soul, angry, bitter, and wildly emotional. He is tortured by his role in this drama, disappointed in Jesus. Judas sings with a raw emotionally charged passion. This is a major singing role. •Jesus (Rock Tenor, low Bb to high E, optional high G): His righteous anger and acceptance of all His people are his main traits. The Jesus of this piece is a little less delicate and more rough-hewn character. He is strong willed, a rock and roll "wailer" and, of course, a Superstar. •Peter (Tenor/Baritone): The head apostle and Jesus' right hand man. He is loyal and loving and in awe of Jesus, yet conflicted as he does deny Him and criticizes Jesus for His relationship with Mary. •Mary Magdalene (Folk/R&B Mezzo/Alto, low G# to B, optional high A): Mary is the leading lady of the piece. She is very attached to Jesus and very much in love with him. She is His protector, caretaker and soother, quite nurturing and very grateful for His attention. •Pontius Pilate (Tenor/Baritone, low A to Bb): Pilate is given the case of Jesus and is eager to pass it on to someone else yet he is given the decision back. He is stern and puzzled at the same time. He plays his role but is reluctant to put Jesus to death himself. •Herod (Tenor/Baritone, low B to high B): The eccentric to whom Jesus is presented. Herod is unimpressed yet quite impressive in his own way. •Caiaphas (Bass, very low C to middle F): The officials who negotiate with Judas for information regarding Jesus whereabouts to aid in His arrest. These men are worried that Jesus presence will hurt their power. They are devious, covert, stern and slimy. •Simon Zealots (Alto/Tenor).

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.
