Theater Musicals: Casting ”A Midsummer Night’s Psychedelic Rock Fantasy,” a musical with NextStage.Production states: “A modern opera that fuses the characters and settings from Shakespeares A Midsummer Nights Dream with a fantastical indie/pop score and flower-power imagery. We are seeking actor/singers fluent in pop/rock styles to take part in self-tapes that will lead to the two night live broadcast of this new show. Performers must be able to read sheet music. Actors must have a professional recording mic and video from either a high quality mobile device or digital camcorder/DSLR. We will use some Green Screen technology, but NextStage can provide green screens. The casting and composition process of this piece is different from that of a normal musical — even in the workshop phase. The score, by award-winning BMI composer Curtis Hart, has been sketched out, but songs will be arranged and completed based on the vocalists we cast. Performers should be prepared to work on the vocal development of songs between late Jan and late March when the show runs. The score will be recorded by critically-acclaimed instrumentalists from all over the globe.” Casting 1 role
