An open casting call for the role of Sarah in the Broadway-aimed musical Sousatzka (formerly listed as Madame Sousatzka) has been scheduled for 1 PM November 10 in New York City.
According to a posting on the Actors’ Equity website, the production is seeking “female dancers who sing, age 18-plus to play 16 for the role of Sarah: female, 16, caucasian. An extraordinary dancer (MUST BE ABLE TO DANCE WELL—Ballet/Lyrical, as well as Contemporary Dance).” The audition will take place at Chelsea Studios, 151 West 26th Street, 6th floor, in Manhattan. Produced by Garth Drabinsky, Sousatzka is scheduled to try out in Toronto starting March 1, 2017, and open on Broadway in fall 2017. Rehearsals begin November 28, 2016. Tony winner Victoria Clark is scheduled to star in the title role.
The posting further advises, “Please be warmed up and ready to dance at the start time [1 PM]. Bring jazz shoes. You may be asked to stay and sing after all have danced. Please prepare 16 bars of something Pop/Belty/UpTempo, as well as a second alternative choice, that shows off your voice and range. Bring sheet music in the correct key; accompanist is provided, but may not transpose. Please bring a picture & resume, stapled back-to-back.” The posting requires that actors be “in good American Actors Equity Standing” and that the person who gets the role will be required to join Canadian Equity.
