The View upstairs AUDITIONS

 


 

 

New Conservatory Theatre Center is pleased to announce casting for the Bay Area Premiere of The View UpStairs by Max Vernon, orchestrations by James Dobinson. Directed by Ed Decker and Musical Direction by Kelly Crandell.

 

About the show:  When Wes, a young fashion designer from 2017, buys an abandoned building in the French Quarter of New Orleans, he finds himself transported to the UpStairs Lounge, a vibrant seventies gay bar. As this forgotten community comes to life, Wes embarks on an exhilarating journey of self-exploration that spans two generations of queer history.

 

Casting the following roles (NON-AEA only):

 

INEZ/REALTOR (late 40's-60's, Latinx) Freddy's mother and also occasionally a mother to the other men in the UpStairs Lounge. Born in Puerto Rico, she moved her family to America when Freddy was still young. Lovable, warm, and supportive, Inez assists with her son's drag performances. As realtor, she is smarmy, fake, smiles too much, etc. Soprano, highest note is an E must be able to sing with a little authentic Latin flair.
