Barry Champlain, Cleveland's controversial radio show host, is on the air doing what he does best: insulting the pathetic souls who call in the middle of the night to sound off. The most frightening thing? They love it. In fact, Barry's show is so popular it's about to go into national syndication, and his producer is afraid that Barry will say something that will offend the sponsors. This, of course, makes Barry even more outrageous. Disturbing, funny, moving, off-beat, and totally entrancing, TALK RADIO was adapted into a riveting film by director Oliver Stone and revived for Broadway audiences in 2007 - earning two Tony Award nominations.

Seeking: cast of 6 men, ages 18 to 60 and 3 women, ages 25-50.

Casting non-union actors for OFF THE REALNESS a new play by Nick Gandiello directed by Lucia A. Peters to be produced at the New School for Drama as part of the 2011 New Voices Festival. Addy, a rough white kid from the suburbs, has earned himself a spot in a rap concert with hip-hop star K-Raise. If he can reunite with his estranged brother Ty and reestablish their rap duo together, he has a shot at a record deal. But when Ty starts questioning the violence in Addy’s lyrics, truths about the brothers' past, identities, and hip-hop itself are explosively revealed, and Addy must decide how far he will go to prove that he is Real.

K-RAISE - Black. Late 20s. An up-and-coming rap star who intends to take over the hip-hop industry. Immense in physicality and behavior. Despite his wild bravado, deep wounds have made him discretely compassionate.

GRAY - Black, early 30s. K-Raise’s unofficial bodyguard and confidant. Big guy with jail time in his bones. He rarely sees the need to speak, and is confident and direct enough to secure the space around him with merely a look. Intensely loyal.

KWASI - Black. 18 or 19. Addy’s friend and DJ. A little guy with a big smile. Friendly, eager to please, and perhaps a little naive. He produces hip-hop for his love of the music, and makes no effort to be something he is not.

Run: 1/29/11 – 2/20/11 (Thur-Sun, 16 performances). Sunday, December 12: Callbacks – Time TBD. THE DROWSY CHAPERONE: It all begins when a die-hard musical theater fan plays his favorite cast album on his turntable, and the musical literally bursts to life in his living room, telling the rambunctious tale of a brazen Broadway starlet trying to find, and keep, her true love. The Drowsy Chaperone is a wildly entertaining tribute to jazz age musicals.

Man in Chair:
M.: 30s - 50s. Our narrator. Show tune aficionado and self-proclaimed expert. Perhaps a bit manic and slightly agoraphobic, he seeks to chase his blues away by listening to a recording of a fictional 1928 musical comedy: The Drowsy Chaperone. Underneath his occasionally tart exterior exists a lot of heart. Sings only briefly. Role originated by Drowsy co-author Bob Martin.

Janet Van de Graaff/Jane Roberts: F.: 20s to early 30s. The bride who is giving up her successful career as a follies girl to marry her sweetheart. A lovely-yet-quirky ingénue. A young talented triple threat. Must be a strong dancer and singer. Special skills anywhere from playing musical instruments, gymnastics, tumbling, juggling, baton twirling, etc. are helpful and strongly encouraged to be noted. Alto G3-Ab. Role originated by Sutton Foster.

The Chaperone/Beatrice Stockwell: F.: Late 30s to early 50s. Janet’s glamorous martini-loving confidante. A bit Vera Charles with the heart of Auntie Mame. A diva to end all divas. Cynical quips are her specialty. British. Must be an extremely strong comedienne, have great timing and be a fabulous singer (belters a must). Strong mover. Alto F3-D5. Role originated by Beth Leavel.

Robert Martin/Percy Hyman: M.: 20s to early 40s. The Groom. A dashingly debonair, handsome classic 1920s leading man. Slightly quirky, a bit dim and unassuming. Must be an extremely strong tapper. Roller skating skills a plus. Tenor C3-Ab4.

Aldolpho/Roman Bartelli: M.: 30s – 40s. Over-the-top stereotypical latin lothario-type. Vain and a bit buffoonish. Must have great comic timing. Strong Mover/dancer. Bass/Baritone with a great falsetto A#2-G4 (higher notes can be performed calla foce).

Mrs. Tottendale/Ukulele Lil: F.: 30s to 50s. A scatterbrained society hostess and dowager. Not dumb, but certainly ditsy. Think Billie Burke or Natalie Schafer. Bubbly and optimistic, she gathers guests to her estate to celebrate the nuptials at hand. Alto G3-Db5. Moves well. While not necessary, guitar/ukulele experience is a plus. Role originated by Georgia Engel.

Underling/Noel Fitzpatrick: M.: 30s to 50s. Mrs. Tottendale’s butler. Cynical, dry and comically dignified. So English, he makes Noel Coward look like he’s from Coney Island. Tenor Ab2-G4. Moves well.

George/Cyril Devlin: M.: 20s to 40s. Robert’s anxious best man in charge of all the last minute details of the wedding. A strong character-type. The ultimate sidekick. Must be an extremely strong tapper. Tenor F3- Bb4.

Victor Feldzieg/Jack Adler: M.: Late 30s – 60s. A harried Broadway producer of a Ziegfeld Follies-type of revue. He is very unhappy that his leading lady is giving up the stage for love and will stop at nothing to end the nuptial plans. Bari-tenor Db3-Db4. Moves well.

Kitty/Sadie Adler F.: 20s – 30s. A dimwitted 1920s chorine and Feldzieg’s companion. There is really not a whole lot going on upstairs, but would give anything to be the star of Feldzieg’s Follies. Part Gracie Allen, part Jean Harlow. Good dancer. Soprano Bb3-F5. Gangster #1 and Gangster #2/The Tall Brothers: M.: 20s – 30s. A classic vaudeville duo with a strong sense of physical comedy (think 2 out of the Three Stooges). They pose as pastry chefs to put the pressure on Feldzieg to end the wedding. All heights, physical types and ethnicities strongly encouraged. Must be strong movers/dancers. Tenors Db3-Gb4.

Trix the Aviatrix/Gwendoline Hall F.: Late 20s to late 30s. The somewhat “butch” 1920s autopilot that saves the day and flies the company off to Rio. Think Amelia Earhart as played by Ethel Waters, but not necessarily African American. Ab3-Eb5 Belter.

Ensemble: M & F: 20s to 30s. Seeking two men and two women to play members of Mrs. Tottendale’s household staff, reporters and aviators. All must be excellent singers and extremely strong dancers. NOTE: One of these gentlemen will play the role of the Superintendent.

Directions: Take the R to 9th St. or the F to 4th Ave. in Brooklyn. The R can be accessed at the Pacific/Atlantic station in Brooklyn which is served by the 2,3,4,5,N,B,D and Q trains from Manhattan.

(NEW) Glengarry Glen Ross, open call
Auditions will be held on Sunday, December 5 at 6:30pm and Monday, December 6 at 7pm. Both auditions will be held at The Chatham Playhouse, 23 North Passaic Ave., Chatham. Director Chase Newhart asks that actors be familiar with the script. Sides will be provided at the audition.

The Chatham Players have an open call casting policy. ALL roles are open, none are pre-cast, and everyone is encouraged to audition. Any questions please call Kristin Furlong at (732) 208-4184 or email her at For directions or additional information, please visit Synopsis: It’s the early 1980’s in Chicago where all cons, like magic acts, begin with subtle manipulation, but then slide into sleight of hand when the mark becomes distracted. In a world where talking can be idle and irrelevant, but also meaningful and foreshadowing, the tone of the “talking” is the defining qualifier. Life in this crucible is represented by a constantly present chalkboard: Top man gets a Cadillac – Bottom man gets “erased”. Success leads to opportunity for greater rewards – Failure becomes an inescapable trap, spiraling inevitably down – a theme in a minor key.

Ricky Roma
(Salesman, 40s) Suave, successful, devious and out for himself.

Shelly Levine (Salesman, 50s/60s) Sinking desperately in tragic quicksand, his boastfulness will lead to humiliation.

John Williamson (Manager, 30s/40s) Without real sales experience, apparently a company man – but nevertheless willing to scam in his own interest.

Dave Moss (Salesman, 50s) Tough, crude, and too bitter to play well the hand he’s been dealt.

George Aronow (Salesman, 50s) Frustrated and meek, depressed but accepting, he is needy – but still has common sense.

James Lingk (married, 30s/40s) We meet him drinking alone. Sensitive, malleable to others and deeply flawed.

Detective Baylen (Police Officer, 40s) Experienced, no-nonsense cop. Strong – will use force when needed.

Actors should be fearless (but NO NUDITY REQUIRED), interested in extreme humor/horror, and be interested in working with stage combat. Previous experience in any stage combat or movement work a plus but not required. The festival dates are as follows: SATURDAY, DEC 4 5:00. THURSDAY, DEC 9 8:00. SATURDAY, DEC 11 8:00. TUESDAY, DEC 14 8:00. SUNDAY, DEC 19 8:00. Unfortunately no pay but we promise manageable rehearsals and a fun experience on a unique script.

ROLES FOR FEMALES. Lucy, 20+. An attractive, sweet member of the family.

ROLES FOR MEN. Three roles for men, ages 20+. Deranged colorful roles of various sizes. FIGHT EXPERIENCE a strong plus. One role includes very little spoken word but significant combat.

One male role is a strong feral child. Wild physical movement a plus.

HARTFORD STAGE COMPANY is casting for Snow Falling On Cedars. HARTFORD, CT. Artistic Director: Michael Wilson. Director: Jeremy Cohen. Writer: David Gutterson. Adapted by: Kevin McKeon. Casting: Harriet Bass. Aud.: 10/28/10. Reh.: 12/13/10. Open: 1/21/11. Close: 2/12/11. SNOW FALLING ON CEDARS alternates between a powerful epic romance and a searing national examination of racial profiling, all resting on the fulcrum of a courtroom trial surrounding the death of respected local fisherman.

ISHMAEL CHAMBERS Early-Mid 30's, White. Editor of the town newspaper; cognizant of racial struggles but is conflicted, honest and always questioning. He loses his arm in WWII and clearly changed for the more shut-down after the war.

HATSUE (IMADA) MIYAMOTO Late 20's-Early 30's, Japanese-American. Graceful and smart, conflicted between the worlds of “American” and “Japanese” but, despite her young love of Ishmael, airs on the side of her family’s staunch beliefs of a more realistic life. She is the wife of KABUO, and daughter of FUJIKO and HISAO IMADA.

NELS GUDMUNDSSON/as Cast. Late 50's-60's, White. Experienced defense attorney, straight-forward and no nonsense but compassionate and sympathetic; as KABUO's lawyer, he doesn’t leave anything to question and intends to show that the trial is truly only about racial prejudice. Very Atticus Finch.

KABUO MIYAMOTO/30’s, Japanese-American. A fisherman who struggles to find his place in every aspect of the community. Strong and wellbuilt. A decorated US first lieutenant in WWII, he comes home to a world unchanged in respect to race and is accused of murdering CARL HEINE JR. He becomes the husband to HATSUE.

ALVIN HOOKS/FISHERMAN/CORONER/HARVEY/as Cast. 40's, White. ALVIN HOOKS is the prosecutor on the case; competent, quick, feeds into the racist vein of the island in order to enhance his case. Has a slickness to him. Like the others in the town, he has lived a very workman-like life, growing-up as a part of this small community.

CARL HEINE JR/FBI AGENT/JACKSON. Late 20’s-early 30’s, White. CARL HEINE -a big, well-built man, a fisherman, quiet with a “fastidious nature”, also fought in WWII and came back hardened and prejudiced. He is allegedly murdered by KABUO, his childhood friend; and is SUSAN’S husband, CARL SR. and ETTA’s son.

ABEL/CARL HEINE SR./GEORGE LEONARD. 40's- 50's, White. ABEL: the Deputy, an inexperienced investigator with a weak stomach. CARL HEINE SR: kindhearted, concerned with treating the Miyamoto’s with equality & dignity.

ETTA HEINE, MRS. CHAMBERS, DR. WHITMAN. Late 40's-50's, White. ETTA: opinionated housewife and deep protector of her family & its legacy...and to that end, doesn’t agree with her husband about equality in the community. MRS. CHAMBERS: outspoken, believes in tolerance and being honest, worried for ISHMAEL, tender in a strong way.

HISAO IMADA/ZENHICHI MIYAMOTO/MR. NITTA. Late 40's-50's, Japanese. ALL MEN are hard working and concerned with doing what is best for their families on an island where the line is blatantly obvious between the Anglo Americans and Japanese Americans.

(NEW) There is a Field, Staged Reading
To audition for this production, please email acting resume and high-quality headshot to with Subject line: There is a Field Casting. We will review all applications submitted and contact you.

Seeking Palestinian & Israeli actors for There is a Field, an original staged reading that explores the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. There is a Field, written by Jen Marlowe, tells the story of Asel Asleh, an inspiring young Palestinian citizen of Israel committed to peaceful dialogue and reconciliation. The Actors Theatre Workshop’s staged reading will be one of a number of productions that will take place in October around the world, with a goal of commemorating Asel’s life and highlighting some of the issues that Palestinian citizens of Israel face today. In October 2000, Asel Asleh and 11 other Palestinian citizens of Israel were shot and killed by Israeli security forces during demonstrations in Israel by Palestinians protesting the second Intifada in the West Bank and Gaza. This October marks the ten-year anniversary of what Palestinians inside Israel refer to as “Black October.” There is a Field tells the story of seventeen year-old Asel, who had spent the last three years of his life dedicated to peaceful dialogue and reconciliation through his participation and leadership in an international peace program called Seeds of Peace. The play also tells the story of Asel’s older sister Nardin and the evolution of her worldview after her brother’s death. On a larger level, the play casts a light on the struggles faced by Palestinians who live inside Israel — a minority in their own country whose issues are often overshadowed in the international discourse about Israel and Palestine, where the focus is on the West Bank. During the month of October 2010, theatre companies and theatre artists around the world will mount productions of "There is a Field" to commemorate Asel Asleh’s life to promote awareness and discussion of this important issue. There is a Field, will be produced by The Actors Theatre Workshop, an award-winning non-profit theatre and community center, and directed by its Artistic Director, Executive Producer and Founder, Thurman E. Scott, a highly-acclaimed actor, writer and director.
