Project: How Will Find the Courage Music Video

Jason who is a young man trying to find the right way to finally tell his father that he is gay in 2016, while back in 1969 Johnny who is a macho Italian mobster tries to figure out if despite what he is told to believe, he loves a Puerto Rican drag queen. While the two never face to face in the story, they both go through a moment of reflection before having a very difficult conversation that will change the way others see them. Separate locations will be used to shoot the two different characters. Both parts would need to be able to showcase their dramatic acting range as well as singing.

We are looking for passionate, dedicated, and flexible actor/singers for a musical-theater-style video production. Prepare a video submission with a ballad to sing (8 bar cut) and 1 minute monologue. Audition video should be no longer than 3 minutes.

Submit your profile for consideration

Callbacks and filming to take place in and around Ann Arbor, MI Thursday, October 3rd - Monday, October 7th

Please add your schedule availability in your submission notes to ensure the success of this project.

This is part of a larger piece, Stonewall The Musical, still in the works. How Will I Find The Courage is a song from that, meant to be a teaser trailer.

Project: LIL & LOUIS a play with music

NOW CASTING for LIL & LOUIS, a play with music

WHAT: Non-Equity, paid production of LIL & LOUIS, a full-length play with songs, about Lil Hardin Armstrong and her husband Louis Armstrong.  
WHEN: Rehearsals start December 16; performances: January 21-25, 2020; 5 performances. 
WHERE: Submit your profile for location information.

  • 6 AFRICAN-AMERICAN ACTORS (4M, 2F); STRONG SINGERS WHO MOVE WELL.

 

‚ÄčPRINCIPAL ROLES:
LIL HARDIN ARMSTRONG… Age range 18-73. Preferred actor age about 30-55. Slender, small. Feisty, vivacious. Laughs easily and often. Memphis native with light Southern accent, always drops the final “g,” resulting in a lilting speech pattern. Strong singer, pop style.  
LOUIS ARMSTRONG…  Age range 22 -70. Preferred actor age about 30-55.Short, stocky, dark-skinned.  New Orleans accent (similar to Brooklyn). No need to play trumpet. Must sing and otherwise convincingly portray Louis.
SWING/ENSEMBLE: 3 M, 2 F. (UPDATE: 1 F.) Each will portray at least one character plus multiple ensemble roles.

  • M, mature. 45+.
  • M, light-skinned to play Creole roles. 25-40.

It’s the Roaring ’20s and “Hot Miss Lil” is a star! Barely 20, she’s already a bandleader, arranger, composer, singer—and usually the only woman in Chicago’s hottest bands. As pianist with King Oliver’s Creole Jazz Band she’s unimpressed when “Little Louis” Armstrong, a pudgy bumpkin with a cornet, arrives from New Orleans, but shy “Satchelmouth” wins her over. Lil becomes his friend, mentor, co-composer, arranger, manager and wife—the second of four. LIL & LOUIS is a unique love story about “the First Couple of Jazz.” 

 

Watch jazz and theater history come alive—and celebrate Women’s History Month—as this new play unfolds in its final step (script in hand) before a full production. Enter the world of LIL & LOUIS, presented in an intimate setting with talented performers from Westcoast Black Theatre Troupe and authentic songs (live and recorded) and dances of the era.

Project: Moving On

 Everyone has been in a dark place at one point or another in their lives. We often call it the darkness, our nightmare. What I went through was the darkest time of my life. Often times we can compare it to being pushed down a dark hole and we're falling deeper and deeper into the darkness. We reach our hand out to the light above us but it keeps getting further and further away. From my experience and writing my script, I was able to get through the darkness and see the light again. The light for me was my happiness. There is a quote that read " in order for one to be reborn, their water must break." What this means is whatever pain you're going through, whatever darkness you're going through, whatever nightmare you're going through, sometimes we have to break and by break I mean with our emotions. The message I want my viewers to feel is that there is always a light at the end of the tunnel. If I can get through my darkness so can they. I've moved on.

Melanie Parker is an openly gay female who decided to give one last guy a chance after not dating one for many years. He is manipulative, possessive, and is anti-lbgt. She goes through what she called 'her nightmare' when it came to getting away from her ex. She meets a trans female and the two form a romantic companionship.

Project: Hero

Young Bobby idolizes his neighbor, Mr. Speelman, and is convinced he is the real life version of his favorite comic book hero, Supersonic. Intent to prove his suspicions correct, he follows his neighbor one night in the hopes of catching him in some heroic act of goodwill. But instead, what Bobby sees that night shatters his adoration of Mr. Speelman – crushing his heart. By confessing his weakness, can Mr. Speelman regain Bobby's admiration?

Bobby is stuck on superheroes being pure and good – as portrayed in his comic books. But after his neighbor confesses to his transgression, Bobby learns that the real heroes are not ones that wear capes and fight bad guys, but those who are brave enough to bare their sins and acknowledge their need for help.
