head over heels AUDITIONS

 


 

New Conservatory Theatre Center is pleased to announce casting for our production of Head Over Heels, Songs by The Go-Go’s, Based on The Arcadia by Sir Philip Sydney, Concieved and original book by Jeff Whitty, Adapted by James Magruder. Directed by Ed Decker and Music Direction by Mark Dietrich.

 

About the show:  Fall in love with a bold new musical set to the soundtrack of the most successful female rock band of all time, The Go-Go’s. Head Over Heels is a modern fairy tale that features Billboard-topping hits like “We Got The Beat”, “Our Lips Are Sealed”, and “Vacation” that defined the sound of a generation. Set in a faraway land where once-upon-a-time is right now, it follows the adventures of a royal family as they journey to save their kingdom from extinction and end up finding love in unexpected places.

 

Casting the following roles (NON-AEA ONLY):

All gender identities and ethnicities encouraged to submit.

 

BASILIUS - King of Arcadia. A sexy, good ol' boy. A hothead, but not a despot. Blindly thinks Arcadia is doing great under his masculine rule, which will be sorely tested during the course of the show.

GYNECIA - Queen of Arcadia. Sexy, wise, beautiful. Like any longstanding spouse, knows how to get her way with her husband when push comes to shove.

PAMELA - Basilius and Gynecia's older daughter. Confident and obsessed with her appearance regardless of what others think. True to herself.

PHILOCLEA - Basilius and Gynecia's younger daughter. Shy and a "good girl", she yearns to follow her heart rather than obey her father's orders.

MOPSA - Handmaiden to Pamela. Warm, skeptical. Growing up without a mother has made her wise beyond her years about everyone and everything, which is why she is the (sometimes) narrator to the show.

MUSIDORUS - A young shepherd who courts after Philoclea.

PYTHIO - The Oracle; powerful, mysterious. Demanding. Great sense of humor--can see through everyone--they are the Oracle of Delphi, after all. Performer isn't limited to gender identity or ethnicity.

The cake AUDITIONS

 


 

New Conservatory Theatre Center is pleased to announce casting for our Regional Premiere of The Cake by Bekah Brunstetter, directed by Tracy Ward.

 

About the show:  Della makes cakes, not judgment calls – those she leaves to her husband, Tim. But when the girl she helped raise comes back home to North Carolina to get married, and the fiancé is actually a fiancée, Della’s life gets turned upside down. She can’t really make a cake for such a wedding, can she? For the first time in her life, Della has to think for herself.

 

Casting the following roles (NON-AEA ONLY):

All gender identities and ethnicities encouraged to submit.

 

DELLA - 50s. A bakery owner with lofty ambitions. Warm-hearted and loyal, Della has rarely had an opportunity to question the beliefs that she’s been fed.

TIM - 50s, Della’s husband. A blue-collar worker who moves through life with certainty and conviction, though he may surprise even himself.

JEN - early 30s. Wide-eyed and energetic, readying herself for the most important day of her life, her wedding. Having trouble rectifying the adult life she’s created with the past she was formed from.

MACY - early 30s, African American. Jen’s fiancée. Didn’t always dream of a wedding, but always dreamt of Jen. She is candid and able to back up her words with action.
