Big Fish Audition Information

*This show will be presented at the Mitch Park Amphitheatre*

Based on the celebrated novel by Daniel Wallace and the acclaimed film directed by Tim Burton, BIG FISH tells the story of Edward Bloom, a traveling salesman who lives life to its fullest…and then some! Edward’s incredible, larger-than-life stories thrill everyone around him—most of all, his devoted wife Sandra. But their son Will, about to have a child of his own, is determined to find the truth behind his father’s epic tales. Overflowing with heart and humor, BIG FISH is an extraordinary musical that reminds us why we love going to the theatre—for an experience that’s richer, funnier and bigger than life itself.

 

We are seeking to cast the following roles: 

Edward Bloom – originally play by Norbert Leo Butz, a loving husband and father who leads a complex imaginary life with many fantasy friends; requires a singer, dancer who ages from 18 to 60+; a huge heart, a great sense of humor and a vivid imagination (bari-tenor, G2 to G4).

Will Bloom – Edward’s son, a realist and a pragmatist; and the polar opposite of Edward. His journey of reconciliation with his father is the story of the musical. This is the second male lead and requires a strong actor who sings beautifully. (tenor, C#3 to G4)

Young Will Bloom – ages 10-13 years old, strong acting ability, must be able to sing. Although he loves his father, he is becoming weary of his father’s tales. (B3 to C5).
*THIS ROLE WILL BE DOUBLE CAST*

Sandra Bloom-This role has been cast. We are looking to cast an understudy! 

Josephine Bloom – Will’s wife, a lovely young woman who provides balance for Will’s pragmatism. With Sandra, she supports and helps guide Will’s journey toward reconciliation with his father. This supporting female role requires a strong actor-singer. (mix/belt to C#5)

Karl – a giant, one of Edward’s fantasy friends. This supporting role requires an actor who is preferably over 6 feet tall. Through Edward’s friendship, he grows from being a ‘beastly’ outcast to a highly successful businessman. This supporting role requires an actor who acts, sings, has an appreciation for comic irony, stilt walks, and dances. (bass, A3 to D4)

Amos Callaway – a werewolf, another of Edward’s fantasy friends. Masquerading as a ringmaster of a broken down circus, he begins as Edward’s tormentor but then, through Edward’s acceptance, he accepts himself and becomes highly successful. This supporting role requires an actor-comic who acts, sings, and moves well. (baritone, C3 to F5, touches a G5)

The Witch – the earliest and most fantastic of Edward’s “imaginary” acquaintances who shows him how he’ll die. This supporting role requires a strong, singer-dancer with commanding acting skills. (mezzo with high belt, useable F3 to F5)

Jenny Hill – the other woman, one of Edward’s early childhood friends who he forgets but then who later becomes the recipient of his kindness. This supporting role also requires a good actress, singer, and mover who ages from 18 to 60+. (mix/belt to E5)


Don Price – Edward’s childhood frenemy, an early buddy, bully and rival for Sandra’s hand. This is a supporting roles requires a strong actor with a comic sensibility, a good singer and has movement skills. (baritone, C3 to F#4)

Dr. Bennett – Edward’s physician, the experienced and wise country doctor, Edward’s contemporary.

Ensemble – A large ensemble full of singers and dancers is crucial for this production. Smaller parts with acting, singing, and dancing solos are available throughout the script. Actors capable of “circus tricks” and gymnastics is appreciated. We will be looking for tap dancers for specific numbers.

Children’s Ensemble: We will also be casting a small ensemble of children (ages 6-10) to appear in the show.


 

I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change (Revised Version)
Audition Information

*This show will be presented at the Upstage Theatre Blackbox*

The longest running off-Broadway revue in history has been revised for the 21st century! This celebration of the mating game takes on the truths and myths behind that contemporary conundrum known as 'the relationship.' Act I explores the journey from dating and waiting to love and marriage, while Act II reveals the agonies and triumphs of in-laws and newborns, trips in the family car and pick-up techniques of the geriatric set. This hilarious revue pays tribute to those who have loved and lost, to those who have fallen on their face at the portal of romance, to those who have dared to ask, 'Say, what are you doing Saturday night?' The 2018 version features two new songs, revised lyrics and dialogue throughout the show to reflect dating in modern times.
