TITLE

Open Call: Ragtime In Concert

DESCRIPTION

4th Wall Theatre, a non-union company in Bloomfeild, NJ, will hold open auditions on July 17 and 18 for all roles for the opening production of its 2017-18 season, RAGTIME In Concert, with music by Stephen Flaherty, lyrics by Lynn Ahrens, and book by Terrence McNally.

Director: Kate Swan. Music Director: Markus Grae-Hauck. PSM: Martha Thalheimer. Production Manager: Gwen Ricks-Spencer. Lighting Designer: Nik Marmo

The show will be presented at Westminster Arts Center on the campus of Bloomfield College, where the company is in residence.

Rehearsals will begin at the end of July, and three performances are scheduled for September 22, 23, and 24.

4th Wall’s “Off The Wall” Concert production will not be fully produced with sets and costumes, and the performers will carry scripts. The characters will be fully drawn, and the music and character arcs will be the focus of the production. There will be some staging and some choreography involved.

Auditions are scheduled for Monday and Tuesday, July 17 and 18, from 7:00-10:00 pm; auditioners only need to attend one of those days. Sign-up begins at 1/2 hour prior to the audition start time, and anyone auditioning must arrive no later than 8:00 pm each night. Auditions will be held at Westminster Arts Center, located at 449 Franklin Street in Bloomfield, New Jersey, easily accessible by train or bus from Manhattan. Callbacks will be Thursday, July 20, also at the theatre, beginning at 7:00 pm.

4th Wall is seeking an ethnically diverse adult cast of 20-30 terrific actor-singers and three featured children; see character breakdown for details. Prepare two contrasting 32-bar selections from classic musical theatre songs that show off your voice and acting ability; singing from the show is perfectly acceptable. Bring sheet music in your key. An accompanist will be provided. Also bring a headshot and resume stapled together, and be prepared to provide all potential conflicts for weekday evening and weekend daytime rehearsals beginning July 23rd.

Non-union; no pay.
