Audition Notice for the Fall 2012 “Round One Cabaret of New Music for the Stage”

Announcing auditions for singers for Not Quite Opera Productions’ Round One Cabaret, 3rd Edition!

Round One Cabaret is an evening of new songs by local writers and composers of musical theater.  This “Round” will feature new songs by Paul Franz, Sandy Kasten, Michael Lunsford, Peter Master, Billie Cox, Allison Lovejoy and Peter Alexander Welsh.  It will be directed by Jon Rosen, with music direction by Ben Prince.

The show will run 2 consecutive Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm - November 9/10 and 16/17 – at The Alcove Theater, 414 Mason Street, Ste 502, San Francisco, CA 94102.

Auditions will be on Saturday, September 8, from 10 am to 5pm, at The Alcove Theater.

Please bring a headshot and resume. Prepare an up-tempo song and a ballad. Monologues are not required, but if you would like to perform one, please prepare a 1-minute comic monologue. We may ask you to perform a cold reading from the show’s introductory and connective monologue/dialogue material (or possibly from a previous version of Round One). You may bring a CD for background music, or you may bring sheet music and we will provide an accompanist. Most of the music for this Round will be in the contemporary Broadway style.

We will be casting 6 singers – 3 males, 3 females – a variety of ages and vocal ranges. All ethnic types will be considered.

These are non-AEA positions, and a stipend will be paid to all performers.

To schedule an appointment or for more information, please email inquiries@notquiteopera.org or call 415.992.8168 and leave a message.  If you do not schedule an appointment, you may still audition as a “drop-in” as long as you arrive at least one hour before auditions close (5 PM). Also, please understand that without an appointment you will have to wait until all people with appointments have been heard.
