SYNOPSIS: 

Puffs! (not a musical) is an adult parody spanning 7 years (in 90ish minutes) at a certain school that teaches magic.

The New York Times proclaims PUFFS, “A FAST-PACED ROMP through the ‘Seven Increasingly Eventful Years at a Certain School of Magic and Magic.’ For POTTERphiliacs who grew up alongside Potter and are eager to revisit that world, ‘PUFFS’ exudes a jovial, winking fondness for all things Harry!” This clever and inventive play “never goes more than a minute without a laugh” (Nerdist) giving you a new look at a familiar adventure from the perspective of three potential heroes just trying to make it through a magic school that proves to be very dangerous for children. Alongside them are the Puffs, a group of well-meaning, loyal outsiders with a thing for badgers “who are so lovable and relatable, you’ll leave the theater wishing they were in the stories all along” (Hollywood Life). Their “hilariously heartfelt!” (Metro) and epic journey takes the classic story to new places and reimagines what a boy wizard hero can be.

SEEKING: We are looking for 11 versatile actors in their late teens to 40s to play multiple roles. (5M/5W 1 either M/F) All roles are large roles – it is truly an ensemble cast.

It’s 1930s Paris and the stage is set for the concert of the century — as long as producer Henry Saunders can keep the amorous Italian superstar and his hot-blooded wife from causing runaway chaos. Prepare for an uproarious ride, full of mistaken identities, blissful romance and madcap delight.

SEEKING: male and female non-equity actors.

Performers of all ethnicity are encouraged to attend.

This is a non-musical but there will be lip-syncing of some numbers.

 

CHARACTER BREAKDOWN:

 

Henry Saunders.

Male, mid-late 50’s, any ethnicity.

The Producer. A self-made man. From Akron Ohio.

Hard-working, brash and fast-talking, Saunders has had to fight his way up to become a major showbusiness producer. Although he is pragmatic and even capable of charm, sometimes it all gets too much for his poor nerves… This concert is his biggest production to date and if it fails, he stands to lose not all his money but with it, his reputation, forever… His former assistant, Max, is now an operatic tenor, and is singing in the concert Saunders is producing. Saunders’ daughter Maggie is married to Max and is pregnant with their first child.

 

Max

Male, 30s, any ethnicity.

Rising American opera singer and former assistant to Saunders. Smart, level-headed and quick with a joke. Considerate, attentive, earnest, capable, intelligent, conciliatory; but also talented, and persistent with his own aims. He was Saunders’ assistant for many years, but is actually a fine singer, and has a potential for an international career. He married Saunders’ daughter Maggie, but he is trying to shake off the yoke of being an assistant, and step into his destiny as a singer…

 

Tito Merelli / Beppo

Tito Merelli:

Male, 50s, Italian.

Tito is one of Italy’s most famous opera singers. Regal in appearance, fiery in nature. Diva complex, insanely jealous. Although hugely talented and charismatic, Tito can be provocative, egocentric, spoilt, and even cruel in his wit… Utterly dependent on Maria, his wife, who he looks at alternately as: the love of his life, his mother, his biggest fan, his maid, etc…

The same actor plays:

Beppo:

A hotel bellhop – joyous, full of life, and down to earth. An unpolished jewel of a tenor. Has a fling with Racón the Russian soprano.

Italian accent.

Must have chemistry with Maria and with Racón.

 

Maria Merelli

Female, 40’s to early 50s, Italian.

Stunning wife to one of Italy’s most famous opera singers. Larger than life, in her personality, in her physique, in her explosive temper. Fiercely loyal, spontaneous and natural, she is also acutely sensitive to slights (especially from Tito) and stubborn as a mule. Jumps to conclusions very fast. Her relationship to Tito swings between romance, savage rows, deadly boring routine, mothering a spoiled child, admiring a great man, managing an idiotic lustful goat… Behind it all, she harbors the romantic heart of an Italian teenage girl at the movie theatre.

Italian accent.

 

Mimi Merelli

Tito & Maria Merelli’s daughter. 25 years old, educated in the US. American accent, (preferably educated East Coast.)

Incurably romantic, wide-eyed modern girl who hopes to make it in showbiz as an actress. She has found the love of her life: she’s in a relationship with Carlo Nucci, the famous young tenor whom she adores and admires, and expects a lot of…

Mimi & Carlo chemistry essential.

 

Carlo Nucci

Male, late 20s, Italian-American from Brooklyn, with accent accordingly.

Strong stage presence, likes center stage, a peacock who has taken on the airs of an artist, awed by Tito… In love with Mimi.

 

Tatiana Racón

Female, late 50’s, Russian – Famous Russian opera singer, former lover to Tito, a very intense and passionate woman.

Russian accent

REHEARSALS: Starting August 12, Mondays through Thursdays at 7:00 pm

PERFORMANCE DATES: September 7th – September 29th Saturdays and Sundays at 1:00 pm.  You MUST be available for all performance dates.

WHAT TO BRING: Prepare a short song.  We strongly suggest that you bring sheet music but if that is not possible a CD or phone will be accepted.  An accompanist will be provided.  Also bring a headshot and resume if you have them.

CHARACTER BREAKDOWN:

 

Little Red Riding Hood – Female – older child to teen

Grandmother, Witch 1, Witch 2 – Female – Would prefer an adult actor but will consider an older teen

The roles of the witches are comedic in nature.

It is possible the roles will be split among different actors.

Woodsman, Hansel, Prince, Knight – Male – Would prefer an actor in their 20’s or 30’s but will consider an older teen.

The actor should be able to handle multiple characters and bring an individual reality to each one.  It is also possible that the roles will be split among several actors.

Toby the Magic Dragon – Male – Child or Teen

Toby is a puppet that will be operated by the actor who will also speak Toby’s lines.  Ability to do different dialects is a plus.

Magic – Male or Female

This is a non-speaking role but an important part of establishing the magic of the show, hence the name.  The actor should be able to move well as there is some stylized movement of this character—not dance but a smooth, flowing aspect to the movements.

One friend is killed by a forest of evil trees. Two demons are killed by their boyfriends respectively, while one stays in the cellar trying to kill everything in sight. Like I said, pretty standard stuff.” – Ash   This hilarious live stage show takes all the elements of the cult classic horror films, Evil Dead 1, Evil Dead 2, and Army of Darkness then combines them to make one of the craziest theatrical experiences of all time. And did we say… Blood?!

– A headshot and resume.
– Plus a list of any conflicts you have during the rehearsal dates.  Remember, no conflicts during performances.

 

CHARACTER BREAKDOWN:

  • Ash (Male – Tenor/Baritone): The hero and iconic character of the musical. This devoted S-Mart housewares employee evolves over the course of the show from a cowardly college student to a wisecracking deadite slayer with his detachable hand chainsaw and 12 gauge “boomstick.”
  • Linda (Female – Mezzo-Soprano): The girl next door. Linda is sweet, thoughtful, and completely devoted to Ash, until she turns evil and tries to kill him. She laughs an annoyingly inordinate amount of time after transforming.
  • Cheryl (Female – Mezzo-Soprano): Ash’s sister and the odd woman out in the group. Looking to spend a week relaxing, she is the recipient of Scotty’s jokes and torment. The only one to sense the evil surrounding the cabin, she is the first to be possessed, turning her into an aggressive, foul-mouthed demon that speaks in very bad puns. Spends the majority of the show locked in the cellar.
  • Scotty (Male – Tenor/Baritone): Good looking, cocky, a prankster and Ash’s best friend. Thinks himself the brave one until he’s forced to kill, then his panic leads him to flee. He returns to warn Ash about the woods and attempts to help his friend even as he is knocking on death’s door.
  • Shelly (Female – Mezzo-Soprano): Beautiful, easy, and not too smart. She is Scotty’s latest fling and looking to party. Just because she becomes an evil demon doesn’t mean she can’t look good doing it!
  • Annie (Female – Mezzo-Soprano): Quite the overbearing explorer who finds missing pages to the Necronomicon and wants to reunite with her father to continue their research. Very bossy and drawn to Ash. Must be comfortable in a tear away semi-revealing costume.
  • Ed (Male – Tenor/Baritone): Annie’s coworker, boyfriend, and doormat. He travels with her to the cabin to proceed with their research of the book of the dead. After turning evil, his confidence may lack but this “Bit Part Demon” is ready to sing!
  • Jake (Male – Tenor/Baritone): Stereotypical Southerner and reliable enough to help Annie and Ed find the path to the cabin, but too stupid and stubborn to listen to reason that will keep him alive.

Ensemble Cast:

  • Evil Trees: These are the true comedians of the show. A nasty group of trees out to get the campers and will stop at nothing, be prepared to be gross!
  • Moose: A possessed, singing, Candarian Demon moose head! That enough makes it awesome, except once moose get going they never stop!

 

Note:  Must be 18 or older to audition

Audition Notice: Little Shop of Horrors

AUDITIONS FOR Little Shop of Horrors

Book by Howard Ashman

Music by Alan Menken

Lyrics by Howard Ashman

Based on the film by Roger Corman, screenplay by Charles Griffith

Directed by Rick Kleber

When: Sunday, June 30 at 7:00 pm

Callbacks Monday, July 1st at 7:00pm

Where: Sutter Street Theatre Annex, 710 Figueroa Street, Folsom

What to bring: A headshot and resume if you have them.

Prepare a short song and bring sheet music. (If necessary bring a CD or cell phone audio.)

 

SEYMOUR– Mid-twenties to mid-thirties. Insecure, naïve, put-upon, florists clerk hero. Above all, he’s a sweet and well-meaning guy. He is NOT a silly, prat-falling nerd and should not be slap-sticky

AUDREY-Twenties to late thirties. The bleached Blonde, secret love of his life. If you took Judy Holiday, Carol Channing, Marilyn Monroe, and Goldie Hawn, removed their education and feelings of self- worth, dressed them in spike heels, and a low cut black dress, and then shook them up in a test tube to extract what’s sweetest and most vulnerable- that’d be Audrey

Mr. MUSHNIK– Their boss. Thirties to sixties. A failure of an East Side Florist. His Accent is a cross between a typical New Yorker with a little Tevye from Fiddler on the Roof mixed in.

ORIN-A tall, dark, handsome Dentist with a black leather jacket and sadistic tendencies. He is NOT a leftover from the movie version of Grease. Think instead of an egotistical pretty-boy, all got up like a greaser, but thinking like an Insurance Salesman and talking like a radio announcer. Depending on casting, there are traditionally other various parts that he plays, however, they may be split up between additional casting. This will be determined thru the audition process.

THE PLANT– The most important casting of the show. A strong, athletic, but nimble Puppeteer who will bring a series of four increasing puppets. The first time we see the plant, it is less than one foot tall, the last time we see the plant, it fills the entire Stage.

VOICE OF THE PLANT– Provided by an Actor on an offstage Microphone. The sound is a cross between Otis Redding, Barry White, and Wolfman Jack. Think of The Voice as that of a street-smart, funky, conniving villain. The Rhythm and Blues’ answer to Richard the Third

CRYSTAL, RONETTE, and CHIFFON– Three African American, female street urchins who function as participants in the action and a Greek Chorus outside it. They’re young, hip, street-smart, and the only people in the whole cast who REALLY know what’s on.

(Will consider other Ethnicities if the appropriate talent is not available)

VARIOUS FEMALE AND MALE NEW YORK CITY CHARACTERS– To play customers, wino’s, everyday NYC street traffic and in the final scene, PLANT ZOMBIES.

 

The show runs August 30 – September 29 on Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00 pm and Sundays at 4:00 pm. Special Performance September 8th at 7:30 pm.

 

Rehearsals start July 15 and are typically Mondays through Thursdays at 7:00 pm.

Seussical

June 7 – July 14

(No performances June 28, 29 or 30)

Book and Lyrics by Lynn Ahrens

Book and Music by Stephen Flaherty

 

Seussical is a fantastical, magical, musical extravaganza that brings to life all of your favorite Dr. Seuss characters, including Horton the Elephant, The Cat in the Hat, Gertrude McFuzz, lazy Mayzie and a little boy with a big imagination – Jojo. The colorful characters transport us from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus to the invisible world of the Whos.

The Cat in the Hat tells the story of Horton, an elephant who discovers a speck of dust that contains the Whos, including Jojo, a Who child sent off to military school for thinking too many “thinks.” Horton faces a double challenge: not only must he protect the Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers, but he must guard an abandoned egg, left in his care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird. Although Horton faces ridicule, danger, kidnapping and a trial, the intrepid Gertrude McFuzz never loses faith in him. Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family and community are challenged and emerge triumphant.

Seussical is fun for the whole family!

Book & Lyrics by George Reinblatt

Music by Frank Cipolla, Christopher Bond, Melissa Morris and George Reinblatt

 

Evil Dead The Musical takes all the elements of the cult classic films, The Evil DeadEvil Dead 2, and Army of Darkness and combines them for one of the craziest, funniest, and bloodiest theatrical experiences of all time.  Five college students go to an abandoned cabin in the woods, and accidentally unleash an evil force that turns them all into demons. It’s all up to Ash (a housewares employee, turned demon-killing hero), and his trusty chainsaw to save the day. Blood flies. Limbs are dismembered. Demons tell bad jokes… and all to music.  You don’t need to be a fan of Evil Dead to love this show. You don’t need to be a fan of horror to love this show. You don’t even need to be a fan of musicals to love this show. As long as you like having fun… this show is for you.  Plus it’s the only show with a “Splatter Zone” – a section of the audience that gets covered in fake blood.  And with this combination of blood, jokes, cheesy effects, and really awesome musical numbers, Evil Dead The Musical is unlike any live show you’ve ever seen.  JOIN US!!!!!

For mature audiences only.

Inspired by A.A. Milne’s Winnie-the-Pooh.

 

A very special Friend-and-Relation tells Christopher Robin a story of a Christmas Eve very long ago (about last year) when Eeyore, the old gray donkey who lives by himself in the thistle corner of Hundred-Acre Wood, was absolutely miserable. It seems that he lost his tail and Winnie-the-Pooh and Piglet got all of their friends and a search was organized. There is a great deal of fun and excitement, plus delightful songs, in the adventure that follows. Its theme, which concerns caring, sharing and the importance of cultivating friends, makes this a very special and enchanting musical suitable for any occasion.

Book by Dan Elish and Robert Horn

Geek. Poser. Jock. Beauty Queen. Wannabe. These are the labels that can last a lifetime. With an unforgettable rock score from Tony Award-winning composer, Jason Robert Brown, (ParadeThe Last Five YearsBridges of Madison County13 is a musical about fitting in – and standing out!

Evan Goldman is plucked from his fast-paced, preteen New York City life and plopped into a sleepy Indiana town following his parents divorce. Surrounded by an array of simpleminded middle school students, he needs to establish his place in the popularity pecking order. Can he situate himself on a comfortable link of the food chain… or will he dangle at the end with the outcasts?!?
