Ragtime - Open Auditions
Joe Jefferson Playhouse – The Joe Jefferson Players are holding open auditions for the musical, Ragtime. We are friendly folks and we want everyone to do well. So whether you’re an old pro, or a first time auditioner, know that you are welcome! Director: Dr. Patrick Jacobs Musical Director: Christopher Lovely Choreographer: Monica Henry Technical Director: Ed Kryger Assistant Director: Hannah Love Lighting Design: Adolfo Rodriquez Set Design: Kristina Swearingen Costume Design & Construction: Ann Sands Stage Manager: TBA Based on the book, Ragtime, by E.L. Doctrow Book by Terrence McNally Lyrics by Lynn Ahrens Music by Stephen Flaherty For the first time in Mobile, Ragtime is coming to the JJP stage! Ragtime is a compelling epic musical capturing the American experience at the turn of the 20th century. Tracking three diverse families in pursuit of the American dream in the volatile “melting pot” of turn-of-the-century New York, Ragtime confronts the dialectic contradictions inherent in American reality: experiences of wealth and poverty, freedom and prejudice, hope and despair. Over the course of the show, the worlds of a wealthy white couple, a Jewish immigrant father and his motherless daughter, and an African American ragtime musician intertwine. Together, they discover the surprising interconnections of the human heart, the limitations of justice and the unsettling consequences when dreams are permanently deferred. Audition Expectations: In-person auditions will be closed with the director, assistant director, musical director/pianist, choreographer and stage manager. After the singing audition, a group cold reading from the script will be conducted as well as group dance audition. Singing: Prepare at least 60 seconds of a traditional Broadway song for your vocal audition. No rock songs or a capella, please. Please provide your own sheet music. You may also be asked to sing scales. Songs from Ragtime are acceptable but not required. A piano accompanist will be provided. Reading: A group cold reading from the script may take place during the audition process. Dancing: Depending upon the role(s) for which you are auditioning, you may be expected to participate in the dance audition. Please wear appropriate dance attire and footwear.
