Immediate Casting Needed for Nevermore

Due to vocal health one of our current actors is unfortunately unable to continue. Therefore we are immediately casting an actor/actress to join the TCS production currently in rehearsal – the New England Premiere of Nevermore: The Imaginary Life and Mysterious Death of Edgar Allan Poe by Jonathan Christenson.

Audition Details:
Sunday, September 15
Open Call – 6:00PM to 8:00PM
American Legion, 44 Taylor Street, Saugus
We will audition people in the order they arrive.

Role:
Player 1 is the narrator of the piece with additional company responsibilities. This is a large role with a lot of singing and dialogue set in iambic tetrameter. The director is looking for someone with great storytelling ability and physicality who is able to sing baritone to a tenor falsetto. This production will embrace the maniacal side-show of the macabre in its loosest term. Movement experience is helpful.

Actor/Actress must be available Mon, Tue, Wed evenings 7:00PM to 10:00PM.

Show Dates:
Fri-Sun, Oct 25-27 and Nov 1-3
Halloween Night Performance at 9:00PM
Tech Week begins October 20

Please prepare/bring the following:
* Two contrasting power-ballad music pieces (2 minutes maximum per song). Bring sheet music with you for your pieces. No a cappella please.
* One minute monologue, poem, or story. Please note that this material is specific storytelling, please select a piece with this in mind when auditioning.
* A headshot – it does not have to be professional – a current printed photo is great.
* You can pre-print the Audition Packet from here and bring it with you to the audition.

It’s Christmas in July!

Tickets for our Youth Theatre Workshop production of Elf The Musical JR. are now on sale for performances on Friday, July 26 and Saturday, July 27.

If you are not familiar with this newer holiday classic, Buddy, a young orphan, mistakenly crawls into Santa’s bag of gifts and is transported to the North Pole. The would-be elf is raised, unaware that he is actually a human, until his enormous size and poor toy-making abilities cause him to face the truth. With Santa’s permission, Buddy embarks on a journey to New York City to find his birth father and discover his true identity. Faced with the harsh reality that his father is on the naughty list and that his half-brother doesn’t even believe in Santa, Buddy is determined to win over his new family and help New York remember the true meaning of Christmas.

A great show for children of all ages, it will be performed by our Youth Theatre Workshop attendees who range from 1st to 8th grade. Some are new to our summer program and others have participated for years. They are ready to sing and dance and spread some holiday cheer.

Come support our fantastic youth actors and enjoy a holiday celebration mid-year!
