After entering World War II, two female aviator units were formed and more than 1,000 women participated as civilians attached to the U.S. Army Air Forces. In August 1943, they merged into a single group, forming the Women Airforce Service Pilots program. One year later, the WASPs were disbanded due to political pressures and the increasing availability of male pilots. (U.S. Air Force courtesy photo)

“President Roosevelt speaks of every American’s rendezvous with destiny… he was not thinking only of American men but the women who serve – and those women are you.”

Synopsis

During World War II, an elite group of female pilots became pioneers, heroes, and role models. They were the Women Air Force Service Pilots; the first American women to fly military aircraft.

Their biggest battles were fought on the ground; the women struggled daily with sexual harassment, discrimination, and sabotage. Based on real incidents, the play tells the story of four of these young women, and the cost of their commitment and patriotism.

The performance run time is approximately 120 minutes.

Wednesday, 1:00 and 7:30

Thursday, 7:30

Friday, 7:30

Saturday, 4:00

Sunday, 2:00

Hello!
We just put out this notice and we want as many people in the Milwaukee Theater Community to see this as possible.  We wanted to give a chance (albeit a small one) for those that did not make it into the Milwaukee generals to audition for us at the BTC:

The Broadway Theatre Center is holding a general call for auditions for local actors on July 22nd from 12-5pm.

Milwaukee Chamber Theatre, Renaissance Theaterworks, and Skylight Music Theatre will be represented.

**If we saw you at the Milwaukee Generals please do NOT sign up!**

Each auditionee will be allotted 3 minutes. If you would like to sing, you will be allotted an additional 30 seconds to perform a selection of your choice, a cappella. 

All auditionees should come prepared with two contrasting monologues and five copies of your headshot/resume.

Auditionees MUST sign up for a slot through our online system. A link will be going live on the Renaissance Theaterworks Facebook page Wednesday 7/9 at 7:00 AM.  There are 57 slots available.

The 2013 Non-Union Milwaukee General Auditions will take place on Monday, February 25th, 2013, from 9:30am to 6:30pm, at Milwaukee Repertory Theater.  This is a Locals Only audition – only Non-Union actors that do not require assistance with travel and housing should attend.

We will be implementing an in-person sign-up process for this year’s auditions.  On Saturday, January 26, 2013, from 9:00am to 12:00 Noon, interested actors will be able to sign up in person for the 2013 Non-Union Milwaukee General Auditions outside of Milwaukee Rep’s Stackner Cabaret Theater – www.milwaukeerep.com/planvisit/directions.htm – on the 2nd floor of the Patty & Jay Baker Theater Complex, accessible via elevator or via the escalator near building security.

Slots will be available on a first-come-first-served basis – attendance on January 26 will not guarantee an audition slot.  Interested actors must present a valid form of photo identification (driver’s license or state-issued identification is recommended) in order to obtain a slot.  In addition, please note that an individual is eligible to request one slot only – we will not honor requests made for other individuals.

There will also be 25 Waiting List slots available.  Sign-up for these slots will occur in the same manner as outlined above.  Obtaining a Waiting List slot does not guarantee an audition, but preference for any slots that open at a later date will be given to those actors on the Waiting List.

Should there be audition or waiting lists slots available after this sign-up period, they will be made available via an additional in-person sign-up at The Rep’s administrative offices.  Additional details will be announced at www.milwaukeerep.com/about/actingauditions.html should any slots remain.

Slots for this Non-Equity day will fill quickly. Please plan accordingly.

PREPARATION

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

  1. One contemporary monologue
  2. One classical monologue (preferably Shakespeare)
  3. 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.

Non-Equity actors should plan to bring 25 headshots/resumes.  Actors who choose to audition with a musical theater selection and desire accompaniment should come prepared with sheet music.

Questions?  Please visit the website below for additional information.  For additional information, please email Michael Kroeker, Artistic Associate, at mkroeker@milwaukeerep.com. Due to the volume of questions, please allow 2 business days for a response.

It is highly recommended that all interested actors visit the following website regularly for information & updates:

Hi Jim,

Please help spread the word from RTW to all the artists in your network: there’s a show tonight and tomorrow and 2 the next day and another after that and another…..you know how it goes—-through Nov. 11th!  This is a show that deserves a great audience every night!  Artist tickets are $10 day of show.

Please come see ENFRASCADA (a jarring comedy of hoodoo proportions) by Tanya Saracho, an all Latina theater production.  Now showing at the Studio Theatre at the Broadway Theatre Center.

Artist tickets are a pretty good deal to support some really funny and beautiful actors, Rana Roman and Karen Estrada and the Director, Michelle Lopez-Rios, are all locals.  Great designers for this production as well, some local and some from Chicago.  RTW really appreciates you spreading the word to get them an audience to perform for!

Best,
Ali
