Patient: age 30-50 an actor playing the role of a patient for the TV broadcast; overacting a bit, he often comes across as a hypochondriac.

Eddie: age 21-30 a young Production assistant, everything rolls down onto Eddie shoulders and he is carrying a great weight trying to get this production ready for broadcast

Burlesque Nurse: age 21-30 another character for the TV show; this character’s purpose is to be the object of lewd sexual jokes; she should be blonde and curvy.

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!!!!!

Play Summary

Ten strangers are summoned to a remote island. All that the guests have in common is a wicked past they’re unwilling to reveal and a secret that will seal their fate. For each has been marked for murder. As the weather turns and the group is cut off from the mainland, the bloodbath begins and one by one they are brutally murdered in accordance with the lines of a sinister nursery rhyme.

In writing the stage version of her most successful and darkest novels during the Second World War, Agatha Christie responded to the mood of the times by introducing a more positive ending. This production will be using the alternate version of the play’s ending (the “1939 ending”), drawn from the novel and using entirely Agatha Christie’s own words.


Vera Claythorne (Female presenting, mid 20’s) – A good-looking girl in her twenties. She is strong but occasionally succumbs to her nerves and is particularly affected by the poem about the “Ten Little Soldiers.” She is accused of causing the death of a boy she cared for as a nanny.

Philip Lombard (Male presenting, late 20’s to late 30’s) – A mysterious, confident, adventurer, Lombard is bolder and wittier than most of the other characters. He has a strong connection with Vera, as well, which harms and helps him at the end. He abandoned 21 men in the jungle to save his own life.

Blore (Male presenting, 45+) – A former police inspector, he comes to the island undercover but is quickly discovered, which harms his supposed innocence in the eyes of the others. He makes mistakes throughout the play and believes guilt of the wrong people. He gave misleading testimony in court causing an innocent man to die in prison.

Wargrave (Male presenting, 65+) – An acting leader of the group, he does what he can to organize a plan of attack and get as much info about the circumstances as he can. He has suspicions about who the murderer may be but refrains from revealing them when he can. He takes charge but struggles with his own dark past and tendencies. He gave a death penalty to a defendant who a trial jury believed to be innocent.

Dr. Armstrong (Male or Female presenting, late 40’s to late 50’s) – A target for suspicion right off the bat because of his extensive medical knowledge. He is a recovering alcoholic and somewhat timid. Although professionally successful, the doctor can be incredibly gullible. He operated on a patient while intoxicated, causing her death.

Emily Brent (Female presenting, 60+) – One of the few characters that feels no guilt about the crimes that she was accused of. She is unapologetically religious and believes the others will have to face judgment for their sins. She turned out a serving girl after finding out she was pregnant out of wedlock, and the girl committed suicide.

Rogers (Male presenting, late 30’s to early 50’s) – As the butler, Rogers serves the rest of the group and even continues his duties as long as he can. He is very concerned about his wife revealing information about their crime.

Mrs. Rogers (Female presenting, late 30’s to early 50’s) – Rogers’ wife. Ethel is a frightened woman, in much distress. She and her husband are accused of allowing a woman in their care to die unaided.

General MacKenzie (Male presenting, 65+) – An older guest, MacKenzie is one of the first guests that doesn’t become distraught when the deaths are out in the open. He gives in and resigns himself to death early on and speaks of joining his dead wife, who’s lover was died while under his command in WWI.

Anthony Marston (Male presenting, early to mid 20’s) – A rich and spoiled young man. Marston likes to drive recklessly and seems to lack a conscience. He killed two small children in a car accident caused by his speeding, but shows no remorse.

Fred Naracott (Male or female presenting, any age) – Island caretaker, brings food the the island, and transports the guests to and from the mainland.

PLUS:  Looking at casting up to 5 other actors who, along with the actor playing Naracott, will represent the dead victims. These roles may not have lines.

Peter and the Starcatcher Auditions

Sutter Street Theatre
Audition for Peter and the Starcatcher

Director: Michael Coleman
Where: Sutter Street Theatre Annex, 710 Figueroa Street, Folsom
When: Sunday, April 10 at 7:00pm
What to Bring: A headshot or photo and a resume if you have them

The play runs from June 3 through July 10 on Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00pm and Sundays at 4:30pm.
Rehearsals begin May 2 and are Mondays through Thursdays at 7:00pm.
Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script.
Please be prepared to tell a fairy tale bedtime story in under two minutes, if asked.
All ages will be considered.

Set in 1885 England, this thrilling coming-of-age adventure follows the journey of a young,
nameless orphan who grows from a friendless boy to a hero to the Boy Who Would Not Grow
up. With the help of a ambitious young girl who is assisting her father with a dangerous
mission and a couple of fellow ragamuffin orphans, he earns his name, fights off a gang of
thieving pirates and learns about love and friendship as well as greed and despair.
Presented using an ensemble of 12 performers, Peter and The Starcatcher is a vibrant,
ingenious play that comes to life using imagination and storytelling, as well as music, poetry,
pop-culture nods, and fart jokes.

I am looking for an ensemble of performers who work well as a group. All characters play
narrator storytellers and must be comfortable with some audience interaction.
The info in parenthesis indicates first the gender of the character and secondly the preferred gender of the actor.


Molly Aster (F character, F only) – A true leader at a time when girls are mostly followers.
Curious, intelligent, and willing to risk everything for the sake of what is right at the ripe old
age of thirteen, she will be a great woman as an adult.

Black Stache (M character, Any Gender) – Famous for his fabulous face foliage, he terrorizes
the seven seas in search of a hero worthy of his villainy. As flamboyant as he is heartless, as charming as he is ruthless, he is poetical, theatrical, and given to a ferocity that no good can ever spring.

Lord Aster (M character, M preferred) – The very model of a Victorian English Gentleman. Loyal, proper, devoted, and faithful. As a Starcatcher, he is dedicated to protecting the Earth from the power and sway of starstuff.

Captain Scott (M character, Any Gender) – A fictional version of Royal Navy Captain Robert Falcon Scott and (in our show) Captain of The Wasp. Stalwart and properly heroic. In real life he leads an expedition to the Antarctic, where he freezes to death in 1912.

Ted (M character, Any Gender) – Orphan boy who is obsessed with food: the eating of, the fighting over, the dreaming about. A natural actor with an easy wit.

Prentiss (M character, Any Gender) – Orphan boy who yearns to be a leader, even though he knows he will never truly be one. Ambitious, hyper-articulate, logical, and a bit of a blowhard with the teeny-tiniest touch of cowardice.
Mrs. Bumbrake/Teacher (F characters, F preferred) – Molly’s nanny. British to the bone, but with a girlish charm. Stiff in the lip, loose in the hip, fun on a ship. / Formally a salmon, now an ancient, knowledgeable mermaid.

Alf (M character, Any Gender) – An old sea dog. Something about him appeals to the feminine sensibility. Could be his bowlegs, his saucy gait, or his kind heart.

Smee (M character, Any Gender) – First mate to Black Stache. Single-mindedly dedicated to his captain’s every whim. His motto: “Tis good to be busy.”

Bill Slank/Hawking Clam (M characters, Any Gender) – Captain of The Neverland. Vicious, without the skill of quality to lead anyone but himself. Greedy. / Son of Fighting Prawn and Sweet ‘n’ Sour Shrimp. One day he will ascend the Clam throne as head of the Royal Clam Clam.

Grempkin/Mack/Sanchez/Fighting Prawn (M characters, Any Gender) – Mean and malodorous schoolmaster of St. Norbert’s Orphanage for Lost Boys. Likes to keep the
orphans in the dark, as sunlight is known to feed rebellion. / A very bad sailor who wants to be anywhere but under the thumb of Bill Slank. / A hardworking Spanish pirate with an identity crisis. / King of the Mollusks. Kidnapped by British sailors, he served as sous-chef in Derbyshire. Since returning to his kingdom, he has vowed to murder any English who land on his Mollusk Isle domain.

Godspell opened off-Broadway on May 17, 1971, and has played in various touring companies and revivals since, including the 2011-2012 Broadway revival, the version of the show we will be producing. The musical is based on the Gospels in the Christian Bible, primarily the book of Matthew. It tells the story of Jesus mostly through parables interspersed with modern music and lyrics primarily taken from traditional hymns. The first act is driven by Jesus’ parables and songs from multiple cast members, as the eclectic group following Jesus begins to form a cohesive community of love, based around Jesus’ teachings. Act two follows the story of Jesus’ betrayal and crucifixion, ending with his followers going out into the world to continue his’ message of love and justice.

In the script, other than the characters of Jesus and John the Baptist/Judas, the characters are called by the first names of the original cast members.

While the original cast was broken down into 5 male and 5 female actors, the production will be open to casting differently than those gendered roles. The descriptions below provide an idea of the differences between the personalities and arcs of each character, much of each character’s personality is developed by the actor and director and are based around the song each character sings.

The roles of Lindsay and Anna Maria have been pre-cast. All other roles are available and are open to any age, ethnicity, or gender


Character Breakdown:

Anna Maria (Alto): A bit of a tomboy, but basically open and sweet. Perhaps the youngest of the group. She is the first of the group to commit to following Jesus in the song “Day by Day.”

Celisse (Mezzo-Soprano): The female equivalent of the class clown. Goofy and a cut-up. In the 2012 Broadway revival, she played several instruments, including conga, ukulele and guitar. She sings “Learn Your Lessons Well.”

George (Tenor): The comedian, the class clown. The guy who can do a hundred voices and imitations. He sings “Light of the World.”

Jesus (Tenor): Must be the most charismatic individual in the cast. High energy, charming, funny, gentle but with strength. He is the sort of person others instinctively follow.

John the Baptist/Judas (Baritone): He has attributes of both Biblical figures: He is both Jesus’ lieutenant and most ardent disciple and the doubter who begins to question and rebel. Like Jesus, he is also charismatic, but in more of an overt revolutionary way. Usually played by someone handsome and masculine, with an undertone of sexuality. He is the most “serious” and intellectual of the group, though as with all the actors, he must still possess a good sense of physical comedy. He sings “Prepare Ye,” “All For the Best,” and “On the Willows.”

Lindsay (Soprano): The confident one, the show-off. The first one to volunteer, sometimes she jumps in before she really understands what’s going on. She sings “Bless the Lord.”

Morgan (Alto): Sassy and slightly cynical, the most urban of the group. Also the “sexy” one, but her sexiness contains a large element of put-on, in the manner of Mae West or Madonna. She sings “Turn Back, O Man.”

Nick (Tenor): Very high energy. Impish and playful. In the original, he played several musical instruments, including concertina, recorder and guitar. He sings “We Beseech Thee.”

Telly (Tenor): Not the brightest in the bunch, he is a little slow on the uptake. But there is a great sweetness and innocence about him. Because he sings “All Good Gifts” he must be a very good singer.

Uzo (Alto): The shy one. Sometimes a little slow to get things, but when she does, she commits all the way. Has an “earth mother” kind of warmth to her. She sings “By My Side.”
Ensemble roles may be added at director’s discretion.

Anne of Green Gables Audition

Audition Notice – “Anne of Green Gables”

Based on the book by I. M. Montgomery
Adapted by Joseph Robinette
Directed by Allen Schmeltz


Audition: Sunday, August 14 at 7:00pm
Location: Sutter Street Theatre Annex, 710 Figueroa Street, Folsom

Show run: October 8 – October 30
Rehearsals: Begin September 6 and are usually on Monday through Thursday evenings.


The audition will consist of cold readings from the script. Please bring a headshot and resume if you have them.


Please check with the theatre or our website for current Covid requirements.


Synopsis: This dramatization captures the charm and excitement of L.M. Montgomery’s enduring classic about an orphan girl, Anne Shirley, from her first encounter with her austere guardian to her thrilling graduation from Queen’s Academy. The play faithfully recreates the memorable events and characters from the brilliant novel. All the tragedies and triumphs that mark Anne’s growth from adolescence to early adulthood are here: her friendship with Diana, her feuds with Gilbert, her adoration of Matthew, the mistaken wine bottle, the cake disaster, the broken leg, the scholastic achievements, and the saving of Green Gables. Whether the playgoer is an “old friend” of Anne’s or meeting her for the first time, this play will solidify a lasting friendship between the audience and one of literature’s most unforgettable characters.


Cast Requirements:


IMPORTANT NOTE: The suggested ages are not necessarily your real age but the age that you should be able to look as the character.  Depending on who auditions the ages of the children cast may be slightly older.  When “young adult” is mentioned, you should look old enough to have an 11-13 year old child.


ANNE SHIRLEY – (Should “look” 10-12 years old) An imaginative, talkative, red-headed orphan who comes to live with Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert, unmarried siblings. Being slightly on the thin side is a plus or the willingness to dye your hair: however, don’t fret, we will wig you if dying is not an option. This is a challenging role and I would prefer an experienced actress. Anne is on stage almost the entire show.


MARILLA CUTHBERT – (middle age to 60’s) An austere, repressed woman who tries in vain to repress Anne’s imaginative, unusual ways. Though she is rigidly conservative in her rules, she does love Anne and has the glimmerings of a sense of humor and a secret soft side.


MATTHEW CUTHBERT – The Role of Mathew has been precast.


DIANA BARRY – (Should “look” 10-12 years old) Anne’s bosom friend and kindred spirit. Anne and Diana become best friends from the moment they meet. She is the only girl of Anne’s age who lives close to Green Gables. Anne admires Diana for being pretty and for her merry, amiable disposition. Diana lacks Anne’s powerful imagination but is a loyal friend.


GILBERT BLYTHE – (Should “look” 10-12 years old) A handsome classmate who first tried to get Anne’s attention by pulling her hair and flirtatiously calling her “Carrots” (unaware of her sensitivity about her red hair). Furious, Anne broke her slate over his head and refused to have anything to do with him for the next few years. Even though Gilbert repeatedly apologized and displayed admiration for her throughout the book, Anne coldly rebuffed him. However, Gilbert never abandoned his quest for her friendship (and eventually, love). Anne finally forgave him at the end of the book when he gave up the Avonlea school for her so that she could live at Green Gables with Marilla. Mrs. Rachel


RACHEL LYNDE – (Can be middle age to older) A neighbor of Matthew and Marilla, and the nosiest person in town but generally understood to be unmalicious and well-intentioned. Although she did not take a liking to Anne in the beginning, she soon warms to the freckle-faced orphan. She is incredibly industrious and helpful, and loves doing work for the church. She is married and has raised ten children, but her husband,


THOMAS LYNDE is only mentioned on a few brief occasions, and never speaks. Mrs. Lynde gave Anne her first pretty dress via Matthew.


MISS SUSAN STACY – The Role of Miss Susan Stacy has been precast


PRISSY ANDREWS – (Should “look” 16 years old) A classmate of Anne’s. Prissy, sixteen years old when Anne begins her studies at Avonlea School, is considered grown up enough to court the teacher, Mr. Phillips.


JOSIE PYE – (Should “look” 10-12 years old) One of Anne’s classmates, who is generally disliked by the other girls (just like all other Pyes). Josie is vain, dishonest and jealous of Anne’s popularity. Anne tries not to feel “uncharitably” towards Josie but cannot bring herself to like her.


JANE ANDREWS – (Should “look” 10-12 years old 5) One of Anne’s friends from school, although Diana remains her closest friend. Jane is plain and sensible but does well enough in school, seeing as she joins Anne’s class at Queen’s.


RUBY GILLIS – (Should “look” 10-12 years old) Another one of Anne’s friends. Having several “grown up” sisters, Ruby loves to share her knowledge of beaus with her friends. Ruby is portrayed as traditionally beautiful with long, golden hair and loves talking about boys.


MOODY SPURGEON MACPHERSON – (Should “look” 10-12 years old) One of the boys in Anne’s class at the Avonlea school and a classmate of hers at Queen’s Academy.


REVEREND AND MRS. ALLAN – (Middle age to older) The minister and his wife, two friends for Anne. Mrs. Allan becomes one of Anne’s best friends. NOTE: The actor playing Rev. Allan also plays Stationmaster, Mr. Phillips, & Jerry Buote. The actress playing Mrs. Allen also plays other roles.


MINNIE MAY BARRY – (Age range 8-10) Diana’s baby sister, whose life is saved by Anne when she comes down with croup.


MRS. BARRY – (Young adult to middle age) Diana’s parents. Mr. Barry also farms and offers to rent some tracts near the end to help out Anne and Marilla. Mrs. Barry has a severe, stubborn personality, expecting her children to follow strict and sometimes unreasonable rules. After Anne accidentally gets Diana drunk, Mrs. Barry refuses to let Anne speak to Diana until Anne redeems herself by saving Minnie May.


MISS JOSEPHINE BARRY – (Young adult to middle age) Diana’s aunt. Initially a malevolent character, but is charmed by Anne’s imagination, and eventually invites her out to tea, and sends her a very expensive Christmas present. They meet in the first book, “Anne of Green Gables” when she was visiting the Barry’s.


PHILLIPS – (Middle age) Anne’s first teacher at Avonlea, whom she despises (he spelled Anne’s name without an ‘E’, among other things). She refuses to attend school for a long time, after Mr. Phillips humiliated her by punishing her and only her when a dozen pupils arrive late, and by making her sit with Gilbert Blythe. Mr. Philips is not a competent teacher, as Mrs. Lynde admits. He has no discipline, and is courting one of his pupils, Prissy Andrews. NOTE: The actor playing Mr. Phillips may also play other roles.


In addition, two actors are needed for multiple roles as follows:

Male to play Charlie Sloane & Mr. Saddler

Male to play Reverend Bentley, Jimmy Glover & The President of Queen’s Academy


Extra’s may also be needed to play school children, Sunday School children, graduates of Queen’s Academy and Mourners and Pallbearers. These for the most part will be non-speaking roles but are important to the reality of the entire production. Minimal rehearsal time will be needed for these roles.

Set in the early 1900’s, this play brings to life the charming, heartwarming story of a Kansas farmer, Jacob Witting, a widower with two children, Anna and Caleb, who places an ad in the newspapers seeking a wife.  He receives a letter from a Sarah Wheaton of Maine who says she will visit the family for a month to see how things work out: “I will come by train.  I will wear a yellow bonnet.  I am plain and tall.”  Narrated by Anna, the story unfolds in a fascinating flashback on that often exciting, sometimes tumultuous month when Sarah and the Wittings came to know each other and learned a few things about themselves as well.  The joys and challenges of everyday life are richly depicted in this classic which the New York Times called “an exquisite, sometimes painfully touching tale.”
