Note: Looking to cast this ethnically diverse, so all are encouraged to audition for all roles; we truly mean this. Do not type yourself out! Looking for actors who will help breathe fresh and exciting life into this show. Not looking to do what has been done time and time again. Looking for smart actors that can bring their own fresh takes to a role that is unique to them. Looking for people not afraid to break the mold here. This show has a love story as a basic through line, but is also about the building of America and the uniting of people with different backgrounds. Oklahoma sat on top of Mexico at the time it entered the union and with the railroad being built and everyone moving out west there was more of a diverse population than this musical has traditionally depicted. The stuff this show has at its core is actually very timely and we want to dig as far as we can into those layers and themes. Clogging/tapping, and any type of rodeo tricks are a plus for all.

Company states: "Deep inside each human a monster waits to be born—in claws, teeth and violence. Society represses the urge, terrified of any who succumb. Rebels embrace the edge of the rage, hoping to call forth its power while avoiding its burn. And in an instant of survival, one woman will be transformed by it, split into two pieces. And the battle for control of her body, mind and soul will begin. Vengeance, violence and victimization will all become fuel for a battle of epic proportions—and no one is safe from the slaughter to come. Nothing Bad is the World-Premiere musical with Book by Erik Blair and Score by Daniel Sugi (creator of the 2016 Hollywood Fringe Producers’ Encores Award Winning Broadway Noir). It’s a modern musical take on the classic werewolf story that blends the musical rock styles of the classic 1950’s and the glam 1980’s in a fast-paced, highly energized tale of the difference between who we appear to be on the surface and the darkness that dwells in the depths of our souls. Expect to be surprised at every turn, as this is not The Wolf Man. There is no Twilight to be found here.

'CANDY TOWN' – NOTICE EXPIRES APR. 4 - Candy Town is seeking singers for Candy Town, a clown-faced musical act, playing original material which draws stylistically from Kurt Weill, Tom Waits, and the Beatles. The presentation is very theatrical, with elements of vaudeville and burlesque. The act has been around for six years, playing various clubs, theaters, festivals and galleries, building a little following as it has progressed. Bandleader states: "As the band is theatrically oriented, I direct it like theatre, and although I like to showcase the particular strengths of the musicians I work with, I should note that I'm not looking for any songwriting collaborators. I have too much material of my own which I'm eager to unpack. We're looking for two female singers. Most important is experience with choral parts (in choral groups or musicals), as the harmonic lines can get complex in this material. A nimble, precise sense of rhythm is also important, as is theatrical experience, since the performances are highly stylized and usually choreographed. You get a pretty clear idea of our musical and presentational style from the NPR audition video we made, which is attached here to this casting call, so be sure to watch." Weekly rehearsals in Old Town, Chicago IL with eventual full-band rehearsals on Sunday nights. Everyone in the group takes home an equal split of whatever is made at the shows. Bandleader states: "Right now it isn't all that much. We're still climbing that ol' career ladder." Seeking—Singer (Lead): Female, 18-40. Seeking talent from Chicago IL. For submission, visit backstage.com or contact Candy Town.

The CHILDREN's THEATRE Of CINCINNATI's RESIDENT ARTIST COMPANY – MAR. 24 DEADLINE - The Children's Theatre of Cincinnati (TCT) is seeking submissions for TCT, the country’s oldest professional theatre for young audiences, for its very first Resident Artist Company. Synopsis: The nine-member troupe will receive a full-time salary with benefits. Each member of the Resident Artist Company will be guaranteed four to five performance projects each year and participate in touring, teaching, new works development and arts administration. “This is not a gig,” said Roderick Justice, Producing Artistic Director for The Children’s Theatre of Cincinnati. “Each recruit will be a full-fledged employee and part of the TCT family. This is the opportunity for nine extremely talented artists to be a part of something fresh, exciting, and rewarding. We are looking nationwide for a diverse and passionate troupe of artists, teachers, and versatile performers. The actors we will hire must be able to step into a variety of roles, yet be flexible enough to learn and cultivate new arts administrative skills.” The Children’s Theatre of Cincinnati is the only professional theater in the region that devotes its entire MainStage season to children. TCT brings more than 97,000 people downtown annually and reaches over 68,000 students through touring productions. The company’s TCT Academy offers arts training to children in a variety of disciplines. Since 1924, The Children’s Theatre of Cincinnati (TCT) has been educating, entertaining and engaging audiences of all ages through professional theatrical productions and arts education programming for schools and families throughout the region. “We are helping to create the future arts patrons for our city, while at the same time are filling a gap left by the reduction in arts education in schools,” said Kim Deaton, Managing Director and CEO of The Children’s Theatre of Cincinnati. TCT brings art to life for children and the young at heart through three key programs: TCT MainStage at the Taft, TCT on Tour (including WorkShops), and TCT Academy (performing arts instruction). Our TCT MainStage at the Taft series performed in downtown Cincinnati includes daytime performances for school audiences and weekend performances for the public. Four production runs are held each year, with individual shows formatted into one-hour, family friendly events. For each Broadway-quality production, we present seven performances for public audiences and ten performances for school students. TCT on Tour brings the magic of live theatre directly to those who would otherwise be unable to enjoy it. TCT tours five productions each season, serving children of all ages (kindergarten through high school) with titles taken from classic literature, fairy tales, history and other works studied in school curricula. The acting troupe travels with innovative sets, which are designed to be both portable and visually enticing. TCT on Tour prides itself on productions that are both educational and entertaining, as well as affordable for schools and other venues across the broad geographic spectrum of Ohio. TCT on Tour also includes the WorkShop division, which takes a teaching artist directly into individual classrooms or after school programs, for a more interactive arts integration experience with children from pre-K through 16 years of age. Many of the workshops we offer examine contemporary concerns through the introduction of historical figures, such as Harriet Tubman, Martin Luther King, Jr. and Langston Hughes; while other workshops bring social topics such as healthy eating, self-esteem and anti-bullying to life through theater, music, writing and role-playing. Both TCT MainStage and TCT on Tour school shows are followed by a question and answer session between the audience and the cast and/or TCT representative (often, the Director) and are accompanied by complementary study guides, with state and national standards in mind, available on our website. Our productions are intended to act as a bridge for local curricula, giving schools access to high quality arts education as well as serving as a catalyst for integrating the arts with other subjects. TCT Academy offers arts training to children in a variety of disciplines through our twelve-week, one hour/week class sessions, our one-week themed summer camps for introductory arts makers or our audition-based, two-week STAR Camp Red Bank program and one-month, audition-based STAR Intensive NKU summer program for children with demonstrated talent and interest in the performing arts. In addition to learning the arts, a primary objective for these arts integrated classes is to provide students with the necessary tools to become successful adults. Whether the students continue in an arts field or choose a different career path, the skills they develop in these programs can be leveraged and will last a life time. The TCT Showtime Series at Red Bank is a brand-new destination for theater education expanding TCT’s reach into the community. The Ralph and Patricia Corbett Showtime Stage is a small 152-seat performance space housed in our new facility on Red Bank Road. This new theater gives us the opportunity to program for new audiences, including preschoolers as well as middle and high school students. Thus, we begin the creation of future arts patrons in Cincinnati at an even earlier age, and extend their engagement through high school. The Showtime Series will allow us to program the new space with more than 64 performances. The two productions slated for the coming year are: Dr. Seuss’s The Cat in the Hat June 2-July 9, 2017; and the regional premiere of Polkadots: The Cool Kids Musical Feb. 23-Mar. 25, 2018.
