RCF announces auditions for the first show of our 9th season, "Avenue Q," with music and lyrics by Jeff Marx and Robert Lopez (co-composer for "Book of Mormon"), and book by Jeff Whitty. Directed by Scott Randall, with music direction by Eric Bischoff. Winner of the Tony "Triple Crown" for Best Musical, Best Score and Best Book, Avenue Q is part flesh, part felt and packed with heart.
Auditions, rehearsals, and performances will be at The Red Curtain Arts Center at 9315 State Ave, suite J in Marysville, WA. Performances are Sept 7-23, 2018, with 8pm shows on Fridays and Saturdays, 2pm on Sundays.
The laugh-out-loud musical tells the timeless story of a recent college grad named Princeton, who moves into a shabby New York apartment all the way out on Avenue Q. He soon discovers that, although the residents seem nice, it's clear that this is not your ordinary neighborhood. Together, Princeton and his new-found friends struggle to find jobs, dates and their ever-elusive purpose in life.
Filled with gut-busting humor and a delightfully catchy score, not to mention puppets, Avenue Q is a truly unique show that has quickly become a favorite for audiences everywhere. Although the show addresses humorous adult issues, it is similar to a beloved children's show; a place where puppets are friends, Monsters are good and life lessons are learned.
Auditions are by appointment on Tuesday and Wednesday night, June 26 and 27, from 7-9pm. Callbacks will be announced as needed. Actors should have a 2-minute comedic monologue and up to 32 bars from a contemporary musical. The song should be performed in a character voice. You may use a vocal track or bring sheet music.
To reserve a time slot, email your headshot and resume to email@example.com. Please include your preferred date and time. This show is definitely not kid-friendly.
All roles are open, and no pupetteering experience is required, but it is preferred. RCF is open to gender-neutral and color-conscious casting, where allowed by the publishing company. There is no pay.
