Rehearsals starting September 27, 2017. Sundays start mid October.
How to Audition
Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 647-292-0210. We are booking the 27th for more auditions slots and sing-thru / dance.
Jaybird normally offers a streamlined rehearsal period and short run for busy professional/business people. This schedule may alter as we move forward to accommodate additional Monday nights. Shows will be added as we can during the weekend but we are unable to extend the run at this time.
Most of the male roles are available after our initial round of auditions. Also, we are really looking for sex positive dancers and chorus.
Clifford Bradshaw An American writer arrives in Berlin looking for who knows what? He is swept up into the world of the Kabaret, the song, the drugs, the sex, the experimentation. Cliff is a great role for a baritone. Must be comfortable with kissing another man.
Herr Schultz A mature gentleman roomer at Schneider’s boarding house, Schultz owns a fruit shop in Berlin who loves Fraulein Schneider. Tenor. Light dance – waltz. German accent.
Ernst Ludwig Ernest is an opportunist and man of his times. He invites Cliff into the world of the Kit Kat Club. He takes English lessons from Cliff. He smuggles money for the Nazi party and… he needs a tame American to do a few runs for him. Vocally, the part is flexible as Ernst mostly sings in the chorus. Age is flexible but he comes off as a man just before his prime, emerging into his ultimate role. Stage movement. German Accent.
Kit Kat Club Dancers (casting 4-6) Women and men who perform the stage show back ups and stage show numbers at the club. Serious dancers, these performers need to embrace their inner burlesque, be comfortable with fluid and frank sexuality, be comfortable with uncomfortable politics and satire. All singing ranges. Features like Two Ladies, My Eyes, will be drawn from this group.
Kit Kat Club Waiters, and Patrons (casting maximum 10) These are the waiters and patrons at the Kit Kat Club and sing in the chorus. Features characters like Bobby and Victor, and features for songs like Tomorrow Belongs To Me will be cast from this group. All vocal ranges. Movers (as opposed to dancers). Need to be comfortable embracing the seedier side of life…burlesque, sexuality, political commentary and satire (look, I just called myself seedy).
