Audition Dates Announced
Uptown Players announces auditions for its upcoming production of Jason Robert Brown’s Songs For a New World, which runs June 21 through July 7, 2013 at the Kalita Humphreys Theater. Songs For a New World, a musical exploration of life’s emotions: risk, fear, hope, dreams and love, is more a collection of songs that tell a series of stories, rather than a continual and developing plot running throughout. The cast performs 16 songs that sweep us away into the moments we stand our ground, break our silence, make a bargain or find our way home.
Uptown Players is seeking an ethnically diverse ensemble of 6-8, comprised of men and women ages 20-50. Each must be able to read music, have excellent musicianship and have the ability to play a variety of characters. The roles are open to both equity and non-equity actors. There are two SPT-3 principle equity contracts available for this production.
Please be aware that the character tracks normally associated with this show will not necessarily be followed by this production. This ensemble will consist of exceptional singers who act and move.
Auditions will be held by appointment on Saturday, March 2 from 2pm to 6pm at the Kalita Humphreys Theater, 3636 Turtle Creek Boulevard (@ Blackburn), Dallas TX 75219. For an audition appointment, call 214-219-2718. Callbacks will take place on Sunday, March 3 at 6pm. Two headshots and resumes are required at auditions, along with sheet music in the correct key. An accompanist will be provided. Please prepare 16 bars of two contrasting contemporary Broadway musical selections that show off vocal range, musicianship, and versatility. This show requires strong vocalists who are acquainted with the rigors required by this demanding score.
Rehearsals will begin the week of May 21. The production runs June 21 through July 7 at the Kalita Humphreys Theater. For additional information, visit www.uptownplayers.org<http://www.uptownplayers.org>
