OPERA/CHORUS/VOCAL GROUPS:

TROUBLE In TAHITI – NOTICE EXPIRES MAR. 11 - Columbia University MFA Theatre is seeking opera singers for a Columbia University MFA production of Leonard Bernstein's Trouble in Tahiti directed by second-year Rebecca Miller Kratzer. Using an intimate space, this production will question cycles of repression and erosion in relationships. While embracing the whimsical, playfulness of the music, we will dig into questions of human connection and why we so often deny ourselves that which we most need. Sung in English, piano/vocal accompaniment. This production is part of the graduation requirements for MFA Directing candidates. This production will be under the supervision of Anne Bogart (SITI Company) and Brian Kulick (CSC). Synopsis: Considered a light-hearted but pointed satire of 1950s suburban sophistication and marital discontent, the work concerns the "path to divorce" followed by a housewife and her commuting husband. Dinah and Sam, both in their thirties, shatter the opening trio's mood of romantic bliss with their domestic quarreling. They have grown apart after ten years of marriage. Sam gets the escape and understanding he needs from his office and gym while Dinah's trips to the psychiatrist and her spending sprees do the same for her. The lack of communication between the two reaches a climax when they both go see a terrible movie, Trouble in Tahiti, a film which Dinah doesn't admit to having seen earlier that day. The Greek chorus (the trio), in the style of radio commercials of the time, extolls the virtues of suburban life. (Synopsis from Opera America https://www.operaamerica.org/applications/nawd/newworks/details.aspx?id=609) Rebecca is the former Artistic Director of the NEMPAC Opera Project in Boston, MA and a current second-year MFA theatre directing student at Columbia. This summer, she will serve as a Directing Fellow at Opera Saratoga. Her work aims to bring the scale and gravitas of opera to theatre, and the intimacy and moment-to-moment truth of theatre to opera, rendering both forms awe-inspiring, relevant, and accessible. Rehearsals begin April 3 (weekday evenings and weekends). Performances are May 8-9 in at Columbia's Studio, Schapiro on W 115th St./Broadway, NYC. Unpaid production under Equity Showcase Code; AEA members will receive transportation reimbursement.

Actors perform a mixture of pre-scripted material and spontaneous improvisation. We do both public and private shows, so an audience could be anywhere from eight people to eight hundred, and can be performed almost anywhere. We travel to do shows frequently but do reimburse for gas when traveling. Most shows are on weekends, but we do get opportunities during the week. The beauty is that you pick which shows you want to do. As few or as many as you want." Runs TBD dates in the Baltimore MD area. Actor pay ranges from $65–150 per show (depending upon cast roles). Production states: "Additionally, you can earn show tips, free meals, and travel reimbursement, which means no out of pocket expenses." Seeking—Actor: 18+. How to prepare: submit a two to three-minute video of yourself characterizing one of our show archetypes, as listed below. Slate yourself at the beginning of the audition video and provide your name and your selected archetype. During your video tell us why you'd like to be a part of American Immersion Theater and a fun fact about yourself while characterizing your selected archetype. Archetype portrayals are expected to be believable and hyper-realistic as our shows bring characters to life for customers to interact with. They are not intended to be "silly" or "slap-stick." As we perform within inches of customers, avoid all "stage makeup" designed for 4th-wall performances. When preparing for your video take consideration of details such as backdrops, costuming, and era/theme appropriate terminology. These details will be graded along with your archetype characterization. Apply via backstage.com or visit https://ait.careers/casting-calls/baltimore/
