Want to know the secrets of Off Broadway casting?
I don’t have them.
But, I know some people that do.
And those secret-holders are gonna be featured on a panel this coming Sunday, June 1st, sponsored by our good ol’ friends at the Off Broadway Alliance.
Pssst . . . calling all actors, this one is for you.
For an hour and a half on Sunday starting at high noon, Casting Directors Cindi Rush (Under My Skin, Silence!, Urinetown), Michael Cassara (Forbidden Broadway, I Love Lucy Live on Stage, Fat Camp) and General Manager Scott Newsome (Handle With Care, Two Character Play, iLuminate, Triassic Parq) will be spilling their casting guts at The Snapple Theater Center. You will hear all the juicy details of how shows get cast Off Broadway, and how you can get a leg up on the competition.
And if you’re a producer, they may just talk about how to snag a star or two for your show.
If you wanna go, click here to RSVP. The panel is free, but the RSVP is a must because this event will “sell” out (We gotta come up with a term for selling out for a free event . . . because “free out” just doesn’t cut it).
Oh, and show up early because the doors open at 11:30 for a smooze and a schmear (free bagels and networking).
Enjoy the seminar and then come back here and let me know what you learn.
By the way, I lied. I do know a secret or two about casting both on and Off Broadway and I’ll be sharing a few at my audition workshop coming up on June 16th at 7 PM. Take it and I’ll get you more callbacks. Guaranteed. Register today.
