Acacia Theatre is looking to cast Helen Keller drama.

By Russ Bickerstaff
One of the single most inspiring figures in American history, Helen Keller is a figure so heroic that she was one of the first women to be mentioned by name in American History textbooks. The story of a blind and deaf woman who becomes an activist for socialism, worker’s rights and women’s suffrage is an inspiring one. William Gibson’s classic drama based on her life The Miracle Worker has...

Bay Players looking for cast of a popular farce.

By Russ Bickerstaff
A pleasant retro-farce, Ken Ludwig’s Leading Ladies is a fun trip to the theatre. It’s set in the ‘50’s. A pair of down-on-their-luck British actors pretend to be long-lost relatives of an old woman on her death bed. As you might imagine, the relatives in question turn out to be women, so there ends up being some cross dressing. Men in drag fall in love with women. Precisely the sort of z...

Two Different Companies looking to cast for two different shows

By Russ Bickerstaff
Mid way through this month there are a couple of shows looking to cast for the upcoming season. First off, Pink Banana Theatre has announced its show this November—they will be doing a production of Sarah Ruhl’s Dead Man’s Cell Phone. On the whole Ruhl’s stuff is pretty forgettable, but this play looks uncharacteristically promising. The idea is that a woman is in a quiet café when a s...

Racially diverse cast needed. African American and Arab American actors needed

By Russ Bickerstaff
Windfall Theatre is looking to cast for a dinner party. The party in question is called Omnium Gatherum. It was written several years ago by Theresa Rebeck and Alexandra Gersten-Vassilaros.

The Sunset Playhouse looking for talent for retro Broadway musical

By Russ Bickerstaff
The Drowsy Chaperone sounds very much like the title of a vintage Broadway musical. It’s not. It’s actually the title of a musical about a fan of a fictitious vintage Broadway musical named, oddly enough The Drowsy Chaperone. The fan plays the record and finds himself transported to the world of the fictitious 1928 musical. Inside 50 years, this is going to be a very strange artifact, as fut...
