02-19-12 – Indianapolis, IN>Chicago, IL –
ABOUT THE SHOW Musical Chairs is the story of a writer (Joe Preston) who has written a new play opening off Broadway. The characters of the musical are Joe, his still friendly former wife Valerie (a now famous west coast actress), the show producer Matty, and 12 audience members who come to see the play. Each of the “character audience members” has their own story and background which is revealed and explored in dialogue and songs. For the vast majority of the show, most characters are “seated” facing the actual audience. They “step forward” for various musical numbers and for some entrances and exits. The “audience characters” sit in chairs looking at the actual audience, as if the play they are watching is over the heads of the real audience.
All these audience characters stay on stage for most of both acts and have lines throughout both acts. This means that the full cast will be needed for most rehearsals involving dialog or staging. Much in the style of Putnam County Spelling Bee, or A Chorus Line, as each of these characters sings, the other members of the cast act as backup singers for some of the songs. Thus, each cast member has the potential to sing a solo, duet or in a trio, AND in other numbers. — Submit Yourself To This Role Now: Live Event
02-06-12 – Detroit, MI>Milwaukee, WI – Godspell Audition Information
Synopsis: Godspell was conceived and originally directed by John Michael Tebelak, and offers music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz. One of the biggest off-Broadway and Broadway successes of all time, Godspell is based primarily on the Gospel According to St. Matthew. As the cast of actors makes its way through “Prepare Ye The Way Of The Lord,” “Save The People,” “Learn Your Lessons Well,” “Bless the Lord,” “All For The Best,” “All Good Gifts,” “Turn Back, O Man” and “By My Side,” audience members get to see the parables of Jesus Christ come humanly and hearteningly to life. The show also touchingly presents the story of Jesus’ last moments beginning with the Last Supper.
The main story of Godspell is portrayed in the show’s subtext–in the way the players interact with their leader, coming together to create a loving community by sharing stories about living good lives and singing about love, joy, gratitude, judgment and redemption, the group of disparate individuals band together with a common purpose to face challenges and obstacles as they are tested along the way.
Audition Requirements: Please bring clothing and shoes suitable for movement. Be prepared to sing a song, and bring your music (there will also be music available on site for those that do not have their own). There will be a pianist available at auditions, and all songs must be sung with piano accompaniment. Please also be prepared to provide a list of potential conflicts that you would have for rehearsals. — Submit Yourself To This Role Now: Live Event

02-27-11 – Atlanta, GA>Birmingham, AL – The Ugly Duckling follows an awkward misfit duckling on his journey to acceptance and self discovery. This new adaptation of the classic Hans Christian Andersen story will be told through theatre and dance in a beautiful outdoor setting. This show is being created as a direct response to the bullying epidemic that we are experiencing on both a local and national level. We are going back to one of the oldest childhood tales of diversity with The Ugly Duckling but giving it a modern twist with a production that will move children and adults of all ages. We will be celebrating the differences in each of us and have audience members questioning those differences that seem to still be creating barriers, even in 2011. This will not be your typical Children’s Theatre Experience and will have a level of sophistication that will have parents on the edge of their seat as well with half human/half animal bird dancers and a set built out into a lake in Serenbe allowing dancers and actors to be in and out of water, just as these characters would be in their natural environment. This show will be a fusion of live music, fantastical costuming, witty writing, and modern choreography with performance on land and in water.
