Audition Information For

Directed by  James Barry

Musical Director – Carl Haan

Choreographer – Ashley Burger

Working 2012is based on Studs Terkel’s best-selling book of interviews with American workers, Working paints a vivid portrait of the men and women that the world so often takes for granted: the schoolteacher, the phone operator, the waitress, the millworker, the mason and the housewife, just to name a few. Nominated for six Tony Awards, this classic has been updated for a modern age, featuring new songs by Tony Award-winning Lin-Manuel Miranda, as well as favorites by Stephen Schwartz, Craig Carnelia and James Taylor.

For initial auditions:

Please prepare 16 – 32 bars of a modern American pop/rock/folk song from the past 50 years with a strong sense of perspective.

 If you play guitar proficiently, please indicate this on your audition form when you check in and be prepared to showcase your skills on your own instrument at callbacks.”

Director – Mickey Tennenbaum

EVERYBODY, a finalist for the 2018 Pulitzer Prize, is a modern adaptation of the 15th century morality play “Everyman.” It requires a cast of 8 performers of varying gender and ethnic identities. Improvisational skills are a plus; memorization skills are a plus plus.

Characters:

USHER, GOD, UNDERSTANDING – played by the same actor

DEATH – self-explanatory, but funny (not scary)

LOVE – played by an audience member (or so it seems)

SOMEBODIES

Here’s where it gets interesting. These 5 actors assume a variety of roles in the play (Friendship, Strength, Kinship, Beauty, Cousin, Mind, Stuff, Senses, and, of course, the main character, EVERYBODY).

These roles are determined by lottery at every performance. Therefore, these actors are required to memorize ALL of the above roles, since they won’t know who they’re playing until the actual performance. 

For the audition, please prepare a short, contemporary monologue (comic or dramatic).

Any questions, contact the director (michael.tennenbaum@wagner.edu).
