New York, NY Casting Calls: “Last Dance” Open Auditions

Casting Call Details:
Project: “Last Dance”
Category: Musical
Location: New York, NY

Rehearsals will work around Broadway/Off-Broadway show schedules. Performances will coincide with show schedules so actors would need to take days off for performance dates in September.

SEEKING:

STAND-UP/PAUL/CD
Male
Characters are 30s – 40s
Seeking actor/singer/who moves well and has major comedic skills as the stand-up. A must for the role.
He is the MC of the show – our link between the past and right now. The actor has to possess the skills to perform stand up comedy and improvise with the audience throughout the show. As PAUL – he is Joel’s gay best friend who gives him pick-up tips and relationship advice. Funny, dry, unsentimental. Paul Jabara from the 70’s. As CD – An outrageously hedonistic record producer. Funny, charming and completely ruthless, he manipulates where he can’t persuade, bullies where he can’t manipulate. Sexually incontinent and with an
Olympic-sized appetite for pharmaceuticals of every kind, he is an amoral force of nature who blows in and out of his clients’ lives like a hurricane.

DEE
Female
Character is 30s to 40s
Seeking singer/actress/who dances or moves very well. Dee is bright and feisty. An all or nothing kind of woman. Strong willed and a down to earth. Sense of humor and fun but grounded. She’s determined to stand on her own two feet and raise a daughter as a single mother. She also plays the role of Honey – Joel’s fling for one evening. A giddy blond wanna be star type.
Great pop/disco singer.

JOEL
Male
Character is 30s to 40s
Seeking singer/actor/moves well or dances. Joel’s hot, cool and funny. He loves life but doesn’t always know where to draw the line. He’s a romantic, passionate, sensitive song writer. He’s a genuinely nice guy whose not always in control of his emotions. He needs someone to ground him or he becomes a lost soul.
Great pop/disco singer.

SUZE
Female
Character is late teens – early 20s
Seeking singer/actress/moves well or dances. Suze is the daughter of Joel and Dee. She is cut from her mother’s cloth- strong willed and bull headed. She speaks her mind a little to quickly and too easily which gets her into trouble. She’s never known her father and his absence has had its effect…she doesn’t trust easily.
Great singer.

GAYNOR
Female
Character is an African American woman, 20s – 40s
Seeking singer/actress/moves well. Huge voice. Gaynor and Dee are singing partners. She is the ultimate 70’s disco singer. She is destined to be a diva. She is greedy for life and all it has to offer. She is funny, loyal and good hearted until she or her one of her friends is crossed and then she is a raging fire storm. She has a spiky exterior and above all else is out to be a star…whatever it takes.
