From the Director, Kip McCharen:
Cellar in Blue will be created as a partnership between myself and performers to tell stories about the music and artists who created those sounds in the early 20th century. In Act 1 of the show, we will sing pre-WWII blues and gospel songs to teach the audience something about the composers and performers who created that sound. Act 2 will consist of modern musical theater songs mashed up with the Act 1 songs to highlight the rhythmic, chordal, and format origins of modern music. Each performer will need to research the origins of their songs and conjure a story to tell about the artists who created it and how that sound evolved into modern music. These stories will be told to introduce each song.
Auditions are open to all singers ages 17 and up. Performers of color and those with singing voices not typical of musical theater are especially encouraged to audition (musical theater performers are, of course, also encouraged to audition!).
Auditionees are asked to prepare the following:
(1) A modern musical theater song with blues elements, to be sung with as much soul and heart as possible. Examples: “All I’ve Ever Known” from Hadestown, “Washington On Your Side” from Hamilton, “Superboy and the Invisible Girl” from Next to Normal, “Take Me Or Leave Me” from Rent, “Give Them What They Want” from Dirty Rotten Scoundrels…
(2) A 1 – 2 minute story about why your audition song is important to you and what it represents — storytelling is a big part of Cellar in Blue, so Kip would like to understand your comfort and experience with that element.
To audition, please RSVP to Gary at firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know which night you plan to attend.
