'YOU AIN’T HEARD NOTHING YET' – NOTICE EXPIRES NOV. 6 - You Ain't Heard Nothing Yet is casting for a virtual reading of You Ain't Heard Nothing Yet, a new musical about Al Jolson. Production states: "Actors will be asked to download musical tracks and record and e-mail the vocal before the reading, so the song can be mixed in advance. The reading itself will be the dialogue, and we will play the songs that have been pre-mixed." Rehearses Nov. 16-17 (7pm) over Zoom. Stipend $125. Pay TBD upon completion of the one rehearsal (Zoom) and the one performance on Zoom. Seeking—Augie/Ernie (Lead): Male, 20-70, Augie: A performer who disavows minstrelsy, confronts Jolson to do the same, and eventually becomes a successful member of the Harlem Renaissance performance community. In Act I, Augie (an amalgam of the African American friends and performers who influenced Jolson from an early age throughout his career) mentors the young teen Jolson in street performance. As Jolson continues in the streets, their paths diverge as Augie joins a travelling African-American theater troupe. In Act II, years later, their paths converge unexpectedly. Augie, forced to compromise himself by suddenly joining a travelling minstrel show to avoid arrest after defending himself from racial assault, discovers that Jolson is the show’s star blackface minstrel. Augie repudiates minstrelsy and confronts Jolson to do the same. By the end of Act II, Augie and Jolson once again meet by chance. Both are successful. Augie is a member of the Harlem Renaissance performance community, and Jolson, a major Broadway star. Their reminiscing surfaces the irony that Jolson, in the decades he stepped away from blackface, was one of the most visible and powerful advocates for opening Broadway to African American writers, producers and performers. Augie's bond with Jolson’s better self has endured. Seeking talent from Trumbull CT; Boston MA; New York NY. Production states: "We need a video of you singing a Jolson-style song, as well as the usual headshot and resume. Samples of your acting skills (dialogue, preferable from sides attached) also help. Must have access to a reliable computer and internet for the virtual rehearsal and performance, and ability to learn the songs from a rehearsal track and sheet music."

ONLINE ACTING WORKSHOP: AUDITION TECHNIQUE And ACTING For SELF-TAPED And IN-PERSON AUDITIONS Via ZOOM – NOTICE EXPIRES DEC. 6 - Workshops and Coaching for Actors is seeking participants for a three-hour-long online workshop with Casting Director, Alison McBryde. Company states: "This workshop will help actors improve their audition technique and acting for self-taped and in-person auditions. Work on stronger, more professional, and creative auditions and performances. Actors with the Full Participation option will prepare a mock self-taped audition piece for review and critique. During the Workshop, they will go over the critique and notes and then have the opportunity to apply adjustments and perform for the group. As the self-taped audition has become a more common method of auditioning, I have noticed that actors are often making technical and creative decisions that can hurt them in the casting process. In casting sessions, I see talented actors who, because of weak choices, nervous habits, lack of direction, etc., do not get the callback or role. We will address those things that may prevent you from getting the role, the callback, and even the chance to have your audition seen from both the technical and creative perspective. This workshop is open to actors of all levels from novice to experienced professional, 16-years-old and older. Actors between 12- and 15-years-old may attend as auditors only, with parental permission.
