MIRACLE ON 34TH STREET AD

The Milwaukee Entertainment Group is looking for a skilled accompanist to play piano and provide live Foley sound effects for our upcoming production of Miracle on 34th Street The Live Musical Radio Show. The piano score is integral to the show, which includes 1940’s style radio jingles and jazzy reinterpretations of Christmas carols and underscoring throughout the script. We have a Vocal Director, who is teaching the music to the singers so though we’d love to meet with the accompanist a few times throughout the rehearsal process, my main concern is tech week and performances. Interested accompanists please take a look at the tech/performance schedule below and email Amanda at production@milwaukeeentertainmentgroup.com with your availability and any questions. It’s going to be a lot of fun and Christmas shows at the Beautiful Brumder Mansion are always memorable! We really need a talented pianist on our team and the casting process has been a difficult one so far. Thank you so much for your consideration.

Synopsis

An announcement in the local paper states the time and place of a murder to occur in Miss Blacklock’s Victorian house. The victim is not one of the home’s several occupants, but an unexpected and unknown visitor. What follows is a classic Christie puzzle of mixed motives, concealed identities, a second death, a determined Inspector grimly following the twists and turns, and Miss Marple on hand to provide the solution, at some risk to herself, in a dramatic confrontation just before the final curtain.

The 2019 Non-Equity Milwaukee General Auditions will take place on Monday, January 21st, 2019, from 8:45am to 6:00pm, at Milwaukee Repertory Theater.  This is a locals only audition – only adult-aged, Milwaukee-based, non-union professional actors who do not require assistance with travel and housing should attend.

THE SIGN-UP PROCESS

Due to the continued high demand for these audition slots, we will again implement the lottery system used last year:

  • The lottery will be conducted for this year’s audition and waiting list slots.   There is an in-person component to this process in order to maintain focus on local talent.
  • Actors who auditioned in the 2018 Milwaukee General Auditions will not be allowed to do so in 2019. Actors who auditioned in 2017 are eligible to do so again in 2019.
  • Actors enrolled in college or university and in their final semester of study before graduation at the time of the auditions will be eligible to attend.  All other student actors must wait until they meet this requirement.
  • Actors born after January 21st, 2001 are not eligible to audition.

On Saturday December 15th, 2018, interested actors will be able submit their respective Non-Equity Milwaukee General Auditions Lottery Entry Forms outside of Milwaukee Repertory Theater’s  Stackner Cabaret https://www.milwaukeerep.com/Plan-Your-Visit/Directions–Parking/ on the 2nd floor atrium of the Patty & Jay Baker Theater Complex, accessible via elevator or via the escalator near building security.

Lottery forms are available for download here in advance of these auditions so that interested actors may download, print, and complete them in advance of the lottery day.  Paper copies of the form will not be made available on the day of the lottery.  Lottery Entry Forms must be downloaded, printed, and completed in advance.  Interested actors must also present a valid form of photo identification (driver’s license or state-issued identification is recommended) in order to submit their lottery entry.  In addition, please note that an individual is eligible to submit one Lottery Entry only, and only for oneself-entries made for other individuals will not be accepted.

 

 

 

Here are the specifics of the sign-up process that will take place on December 15th, 2018:

  • From 8:30a to 9:30a, Lottery Entry Forms will be validated and accepted.
  • At 9:30a, the Lottery will take place. Participating actors must be present to accept a slot resulting from a Lottery Entry.  If your name is called and you are not present, your entry will be forfeited.
  • As Lottery Entries are drawn, that actor will have the opportunity to sign up for a remaining available Audition or Waiting List slot. Entries will be processed in the order in which they are drawn.

There will be 10 Waiting List slots available.  Sign-up for these slots will occur in the same manner as outlined above once all auditions slot have been filled.  Obtaining a Waiting List slot does not guarantee an audition, but preference for any slots that open (due to cancellation, for example, at a later date) will be given to those actors on the Waiting List. As we have streamlined this process over the last few years, we now recommend any interested actors on the Wait List come to the auditions in the very likely case we are running ahead of schedule and are able to offer a slot in the moment. Please note that this is not a guarantee of being seen.

PREPARING FOR THE AUDITIONS

Audition slots will be 4 minutes long, and will consist of any two of the following:

  • One contemporary monologue
  • One classical monologue (preferably Shakespeare)
  • One musical theater selection – 60 to 90 seconds in duration. An accompanist will be in attendance.

Please note that the actor’s introduction and any time necessary to communicate with the accompanist will count as part of the 4 minutes.  Please prepare and time your selections carefully, as actors who exceed the audition time of 4 minutes will be stopped.

Actors should plan to bring 35 headshots/resumes that must be neatly stapled back to back prior to the audition date. (Please no paperclips or loose paper.) Actors who choose to audition with a musical theater selection and desire accompaniment should come prepared with sheet music arranged in a way that will be easy for our accompanist to read.

All actors must check in 30 minutes prior to their scheduled audition times. This will allow the auditions to move forward with fewer interruptions.

Questions?  Please email Dylan K. Sladky, Artistic Administrator, at dsladky@milwaukeerep.com.  Due to the volume of questions, please allow two business days for a response.

All interested actors should visit this page regularly for information and updates.
