Audition: A Wicky Wedding, Plays by Bird

A WICKY WEDDING
Directed by Brian Bird
Performance dates: October (dates to be confirmed)

“Every family takes a bit of getting used to” – thinks Katelyn Peterson. That is, until she is introduced to her boyfriend Jack Wicky’s family for the first time. It is cousin Alison Wicky’s wedding, and Katelyn must meet her boyfriend Jack’s family members – from Jack’s snarky sister Sophie, his number-one-weather-man-on-the-planet cousin, Derek, a bickering aunt Bev and Ted, to beauty-queen cousin Claire. Throw in the freshly-fired ex-wedding singers Rachel and Jasmine, Claire’s new hunk of man, Pierre, and Derek’s Bronx-born weather assistant/TV star in training, Jenny, and you’ve got a mix for one family gathering you don’t want to miss!

Directed by Luke Brown
Music Direction by Anthony Bastianon
Choreography by Amanda Nagy

DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS:

Friday, September 26, 2014 – early submissions are encouraged.

Non-union, Non-paying

Those contacted for auditions will be seen the week of September 29, 2014. Only those contacted for an audition will be seen.

Performance run: January 16-31, 2015

Please send headshots and resumes to auditions@harthousetheatre.ca with “JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR” marked clearly in the subject line.

We strongly encourage actors of all ethnic backgrounds to audition.

AUDITION REQUIREMENTS:

Actors will be asked to prepare two contemporary pieces (16- 32 bars per piece) in the rock/pop vein. Please ensure that one piece is a ballad and the other an up-tempo piece. Artists are expected to bring sheet music for their song. If you do not bring sheet music we will not listen to your song. Acapella auditions are not welcome. It is strongly recommended that actors read the play and familiarize themselves with the characters.

ABOUT THE PLAY:

The greatest rock-opera ever created, Jesus Christ Superstar has enthralled audiences since its historic and contentious Broadway opening in 1971. Based on the gospel accounts of Jesus’ final days, it is the first musical of its kind to question the divine nature of Jesus Christ. Thrilling audiences as much as it ignites debate, Jesus Christ Superstar contains some of the most memorable music of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s career—energetic, bold rock ‘n’ roll with a vocal score that is as epic as the story it tells.

ABOUT THE THEATRE:

Established in 1919, Hart House Theatre is the University of Toronto’s Performing Arts Leader.  Since its inception, the theatre’s unique mix of young professionals, alumni and students has garnered the theatre a reputation as a cultural destination for not only the community of U of T but also the city of Toronto.
