The Neil Simon Festival is looking for actors to perform roles in the following shows: Laughter on the 23rd Floor and The Star-Spangled Girl by Neil Simon; You’re A Good Man, Charlie Brown by Clark Gesner, Michael Mayer, and Andrew Lippa; and Greater Tuna by Joe Sears, Jaston Williams, Ed Howard. The roles of Max Prince in Laughter on the 23rd Floor and Schroeder in You’re A Good Man, Charlie Brown have already been cast.
No appointment is necessary. Actors should come to one of the audition locations prepared to perform a monologue from a Neil Simon script, and either a second contrasting monologue or sixteen bars of a song from a Broadway musical. There will not be an accompanist at the audition, so actors planning to sing should bring a music CD, a guitar to accompany themselves, or be prepared to sing a cappella. Actors should also bring their current head shot and resume. The auditions are open to members and non-members of Actors Equity, however Equity actors should notify the Neil Simon Festival in advance of their intention to audition.
Actors cast in the 2014 season are expected to be in residence at the Neil Simon Festival in Cedar City, Utah from June 16th until August 23rd. Most positions will be paid with housing provided if necessary, however some roles offered will be apprenticeships with only housing provided.
Stage managers and designers may also apply for the 2014 season by emailing their resume to firstname.lastname@example.org.
