Escape the hustle and stress and rekindle your Christmas spirit at Riverside Center with this glittering celebration of everything that makes this the most wonderful time of the year!; Grease: Here is Rydell High's senior class of 1959: duck-tailed, hot-rodding 'Burger Palace Boys' and their gum-snapping, hip-shaking 'Pink Ladies' in bobby sox and pedal pushers, evoking the look and sound of the 1950s in this rollicking musical. Head 'greaser' Danny Zuko and new (good) girl Sandy Dumbrowski try to relive the high school romance of their 'Summer Nights' as the rest of the gang sings and dances its way through such songs as 'Greased Lightnin', 'It's Raining on Prom Night,' 'Alone at the Drive-In Movie' recalling the music of Buddy Holly, Little Richard, and Elvis Presley that became the soundtrack of a generation. Bright Star: Inspired by a real event and featuring the bluegrass-tinged Grammy-nominated Steven Martin and Edie Brickell score, Broadway’s 'Bright Star' is a sweeping tale of love and redemption set against the rich backdrop of the American South in the 1920s and ’40s. When literary editor Alice Murphy meets a young soldier just home from World War II, he awakens her longing for the child she once lost. Haunted by their unique connection, Alice sets out on a journey to understand her past – and what she finds has the power to transform both of their lives. Propelled by an ensemble of onstage musicians and dancers, the story unfolds as a rich tapestry of deep emotion, beautiful melodies and powerfully moving performances.

Seeking—“Paige” (Lead): Female, 12-30, a middle school girl, and is not incredibly feminine; she is soft spoken and kind, and has an underlying crush on her best friend, Isabel; she is forward with her emotions, but that's it; she is very nervous, and frightens easily, but is always willing to follow Isabel; “Isabel” (Lead): Female, 12-30, a middle school girl who has an incredibly adventurous personality; She is moving away from her best friend, and rather than confronting the feelings she has on the matter she bottles them up and diverts from them completely; preferably with a voice that is a little bit lower than Paiges, she is quirky and adventurous and takes the lead in most situations. Seeking talent from Brooklyn NY. Have some examples of your voice acting/speaking! The roles are both rather similar because of the age range and gender.
