"Ragtime" Musical Looking for Teenagers

San Antonio, TX, United StatesID: 533808Exp: 12/13/2022
Category:Singing
Description:

"Ragtime" Musical is looking for ages 16+. Please see the details below. About the project: Based on the novel by E.L. Doctorow, Ragtime is a compelling epic capturing the American experience at the turn of the 20th century. Tracking three diverse families in pursuit of the American dream in the volatile “melting pot” of turn-of-the-century New York, Ragtime confronts the dialectic contradictions inherent in American reality: experiences of wealth and poverty, freedom and prejudice, hope and despair. Over the course of the show, the worlds of a wealthy white couple, a Jewish immigrant father and his motherless daughter, and an African American ragtime musician intertwine. Together, they discover the surprising interconnections of the human heart, the limitations of justice, and the unsettling consequences when dreams are permanently deferred. This musical sweeps across the diversity of the American experience to create a stirring epic that captures the beats of the American experience: the marches, the cakewalks, and - of course, the ragtime. Additional info: Please wear clothing and shoes that are appropriate for movement. Performers need to prepare one song in the style of the show, 32 bars or a verse and chorus. Please bring sheet music; an accompanist will be provided. No tracked music or acapella singing will be allowed. Please bring a headshot and resume if you have one. Individuals of all ethnic and cultural backgrounds are encouraged to audition. Callbacks will be by invitation only on 12/19. Performances: March 3rd - 26th at Woodlawn Theatre Showing: Weekends (Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 pm and Sundays at 3 pm). Rehearsals: Start 01/16/23 and are usually Sundays through Thursdays in the evenings. If you are interested, please apply.
