About the Show
Run Dates: October 5th - 20th, 2012, Victor Mitchell Theatre - Pumphouse Theatres


What a glorious feeling, I'm happy again!

You remember the story. You love the characters. You know “the song.” FRC is proud to present the stage adaptation of one of the most celebrated and beloved films of all time, Singin’ in the Rain!

Set in 1920’s Hollywood, this zany, light-hearted romantic comedy centres around the early days of sound film, when many a movie studio found itself scrambling to salvage the career of its chipmunk-voiced silent picture star. Much loved silent film actor Don Lockwood (Gene Kelly in the film) has to find a way to stay on top, so with the help of his friend Cosmo and love interest Kathy Seldon, Don turns his first talking picture into a musical.

With songs like "Make ‘Em Laugh”, “Good Morning” and, of course, “Singin’ in the Rain”, you’ll be tapping your toes all night long. Bring the kids, bring your friends, but don’t forget your umbrella – you never know when it might start raining!

Audition Location
Auditions are held at the FRC Studio, located at 2633 Hochwald Ave SW, Calgary AB (see www.frontrowcentre.ca/frcstudio for directions).

Audition Requirements
Auditioners are asked to prepare a classic musical theatre song in the style of the show that showcases their vocal abilities. Preferably, the audition piece will also showcase the auditioner's dance ability. A cappella song auditions will not be considered. Please bring the sheet music (an accompanist will be provided) or backing track for your song. Auditioners are asked to come in comfortable attire to move in. Auditioners may also be requested to learn and perform a short dance routine in the time slot allotted.

Auditioners for non-signing roles may prepare a short anecdote or monologue in lieu of a song, but will be required to do a cold read. It should be noted that although singing is not a requirement for these roles, should the auditioner be interested in being a chorus member, this would be considered. In this case, a song should be prepared.

Members of Equity and ACTRA please note that as FRC produces shows on a volunteer, recreational basis, we will not pay any professional association fees, such as the fees stipulated by Equity’s Amateur Guest Artist policy, under any circumstances whatsoever.

Rehearsals
Rehearsals will be held on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 7-10 PM and Sunday afternoons from 1-5 PM starting Sunday July 8. All rehearsals will be held at the new FRC rehearsal space in the Beddington Heights Community Centre, 375 Bermuda Drive NW.

Synopsis: Gypsy is based on the story of how Louise Hovick rises from behind her little sister's shadow, Dainty June, and becomes the 1930's burlesque queen, Gypsy Rose Lee. While the title suggests that this musical is about the famous stripper Gypsy Rose Lee, it is really more about her hard-driven and determined stage mother, Mama Rose. In the beginning, Rose concentrates on her talented younger daughter, June, whom makes it on vaudeville but soon tires of being cute, marries, and runs off. Rose, determined to fulfill her Broadway dreams, turns to her less obviously talented daughter, Louise. Louise eventually does become "Gypsy", and Rose is left by herself, her aspirations for her kids realized, but her own show-business aspirations still unrealized.

Roles:
Note: All main/support/chorus characters must be able to harmonize.

Mamma Rose - Lead (F), age range – 35-45 years, voice type - alto
The playwright describes this character as the 'musical theatre female equivalent of King Lear'. Rose is quintessential stage mother and a three time divorcee single mother of two. Mamma is charming, ambitious and ruthless. Need a strong actor/singer who can move and command the stage. Ability to demonstrate a huge emotional range is a must.

Baby June - Featured (F), age range - 7-10 years, voice type -belt
The All-American 'blond hair, blue eyed' girl. Baby June is a combination of Shirley Temple cuteness and talent and Rachel Barry stage presence. This little bundle of dynamite is Rose’s youngest daughter and is the star in Roses vaudeville act. Ability to do the splits, high kicks, cartwheels, tap/jazz dance and baton twirling is an asset. Baby June must be able to belt out a song.

Young Louise - Featured (F), age range - 9-12 years, voice type - ability to sing in tune.
This mousy, shy and meek little girl is Rose’s oldest daughter. She lives in the shadow of her prettier, talented and favoured sister, June. Young Louise lacks self esteem and self confidence. She finds solitude in books and poetry. She is constantly competing for her mother’s admiration and recognition. Basic Jazz dance ability required.

Herbie - Lead (M), age range - young 35+, voice type - baritone
Herbie is a single ex-talent agent turned candy salesman. He is a true gentleman with a heart of gold and a soft spot for children. He is charismatic, caring, compassionate and genuine. Herbie avoids confrontation and therefore internalizes his real emotions. He often hides his angst by smoking cigarettes. This character requires a solid actor with a good emotional range and basic dance ability.

Dainty June - Support (F), age range - 16-25 years, voice type - alto
Abilities as per Baby June (please read above). The character now loathes her Shirley Temple cuteness and has developed the determination of Rachel Barry. Trapped in the perpetual Baby June 'act', June longs to actually be the young woman she has become. Ability to belt out a song and master a dance routine required. Actor needs to demonstrate emotional aspects of the character’s rebellion and resentment.

Louise/Gypsy Rose Lee- Support (F), age range - 18-25 years, voice type – mezzo-soprano
Character requires ability to emote and physically transform from mousy and meek Young Louise, into the burlesque 'Queen of the Striptease', Miss Gypsy Rose Lee. Actress must demonstrate ability to belt and whisper her song, have strong jazz dance ability, musicality, a sense of humour, be able to ad-lib dialogue, command the stage and control the audience. Louise is seductive and witty. Be prepared to show your figure.

Tulsa (plus Pastey/Phil) Featured Support (M), age range-18-25 years, voice type - Tenor
This talented 'triple threat' character exudes charisma and charm. Tulsa is a dreamer who wears his heart on his sleeve and supports his friends emotionally. While he falls for Dainty June, Louise is falling for him. Ability to demonstrate emotional nuances and mime is an asset.

Tessie Tura (plus stage mother) Featured (F), age range - 40 +, voice type - belt
Tessie is an aged burlesque stripper who dances with finesse. With her Texas twang, this former ballerina displays a less than finesse persona. Tessie takes Louise under her wing and helps navigate Louise through her burlesque debut. Comedic timing, an annoying spoken voice, basic dance and ballet (to a mild extent) required. Be prepared to show your figure.

Mazeppa (plus stage mother) Featured (F), age range - 40+, voice type -alto
Mazeppa is a big, bold and brassy bugle-playing burlesque stripper. She is the Nemesis of Tessie. She has a threatening “hard as nails” exterior and a voice made of gravel. Mazeppa has a bugle and she's not afraid to use it! Must play the bugle and have basic dance skills. Be prepared to show your figure.

Electra (plus Miss Cratchitt) Featured (F), age range - 35+, voice type - belt
She is a light-headed, whimsical burlesque stripper. Forever in an inebriated state, Electra literally has her “lights on” but nobodies home. Be prepared to show your figure.

Uncle Jocko/Mr.Kringelein/Bourgeron-Cochon(plus other small roles) Featured (M), age range - 35+
Uncle Jocko is the vaudeville master of ceremonies. Mr.Kringelein is Hotel Manager in Akron. Bourgeron-Cochon is the photographer from Vogue magazine. A talented character actor required to perform these important and pivotal roles.

Pop/Weber/Mr.Goldstone/Cigar(plus other small roles) Featured (M) , age range – 50+
Pop is a retired, bible reading, crusty old man. He is Rose’s father. Mr. Goldstone is the pleasant booking agent for the Orpheum Circuit. Cigar is the stressed out and loud theatre manager in Wichita. A talented character actor required to perform these important and pivotal roles.

Older chorus boys/ LA, Yonkers and Angie (and other smaller roles), age range - 18-25 years, voice type – Tenor & Bass
Several males required for these roles. Require strong vocal and jazz dance ability. Tap dancing an asset but not essential.

Older chorus girls/Toreadorables/Hollywood Blondes (plus other smaller roles), age range-18-25 years, voice type – Soprano & Alto
Several females required for these roles. Vocal and jazz dance ability required. These girls need to be able to demonstrate their talents in order to show that they have none.

Young chorus cast (Newsboys/Kiddie show auditionees (male and female) – Featured, age range - 7-10 years, voice type - ability to sing in tune.
Ability to play the clarinet is an asset for young chorus males. Dance ability/movement coordination is a must.

Chowsie - Featured Animal actor
Chowsie is a small sized fluffy dog and Rose’s pride and joy. This dog must like being handled by people and have a good temperament. Animal must be kept in a caged kennel or similar while not on stage. Must be available for call time each show and taken home after each nightly show. Chowsie plays a very important part in the show. Please call 403-828-8568 if you think you have our Chowsie!

NO ROLES WILL BE DOUBLE CAST.

Please also note that there will be fog, strobe lights and animals used in the production.

December 7, 2011    Call for Proposals 2012-2013


CALL FOR PROPOSALS


2012-2013


Front Row Centre Players invites directors to make proposals for shows to be produced during our 2012/2013 season.

We encourage directors experienced in musical theatre to submit proposals (following the guidelines below) to Joey Sayer and Carl Bishop, Co-Artistic Directors.

FRC produces at least three musicals each year (The Rocky Horror Show, Assassins and Gypsy in our current season; Chess, The Producers, Putting it Together and Brigadoon in our previous season) and has produced musicals since 1987. A full list of shows produced by FRC can be found at our website at www.frontrowcentre.ca/archives/.

PLEASE NOTE:we are not currently able to confirm where our shows will be mounted during the 2012/2013 season. As a result, we are particularly interested in shows that are flexible as to the type of venue in which they could be produced.

We still plan to stage three major musicals, but we cannot guarantee the times of year that the shows will be produced. The shows may be produced any time between September, 2012 and June, 2013.

We are looking for medium-sized shows; we will not be seriously considering shows with very small or very large casts (i.e., shows with cast sizes less than 8-9 or more than 25).

For our upcoming season, we are looking for shows that will create an exciting and balanced roster; shows that have name recognition and popular appeal and shows which may be lesser-known but will entertain, inspire and deserve to be produced. All shows must have commercial viability and be able to recoup their costs. Shows proposed can be family-friendly shows or what we have called a "Hot!" show, which explores more mature themes. Please see below for examples of shows that can be proposed.

In our considerations, we are looking for a balance with older, classic shows, modern shows, family-friendly shows, “Hot!” shows, blockbusters and lesser-known shows. We look to balance male and female directors, as well as encouraging new directors who have never directed for Front Row Centre Players before. We also encourage mentorships (see below).

Please feel free to propose more than one show;given the unknowns in venue, we are looking for a diverse selection of shows from which to select.

  • Proposals must include the following information:
    • Name of Director
    • Experience of director, including musical theatre and other related experience
    • Name of Show
    • Director’s vision for the show, including special effect and technical considerations. Please be thorough; we will contact you if we need clarification or more information.
  • Proposals can be emailed as an attachment or contained in the body of an email to Joey Sayer and Carl Bishop, Artistic Directors of Front Row Centre Players, atartistic@frontrowcentre.ca
  • Proposals for multiple shows can be sent in a single email.
  • Any questions can also be sent to this email address.
  • Proposals must be received by midnight, December 31, 2011 to be considered.


The following shows are examples from recent seasons of the types of shows that we would like to see proposed, although these specific musicals are not ones we would be consider. As a general rule, FRC will not produce a show we have previously produced in the last ten years, or a show that has been produced in Calgary community theatre in the last five years. Further examples can be found by searching the FRC production archives on our website.
  • Examples of classic shows:
    • Gypsy
    • Brigadoon
    • Hello, Dolly
    • Fiddler on the Roof
    • The Wizard of Oz
    • Camelot
  • Example of modern or lesser known shows that deserve to be produced:
    • Assassins
    • The Producers
    • Chess
    • Nine
    • Leader of the Pack
    • A New Brain

MENTORSHIP:
FRC is committed to including and introducing new people into the theatre. Individuals with little or no experience in directing are encouraged to submit a personal proposal with a letter of intent, resume and any relevant theatre experience and may be considered for assistant director opportunities.

Participating in Front Row Centre shows is on a completely voluntary basis. There are no honoraria nor out-of-pocket expense reimbursements that are not directly related to the show and approved by the producer.

All proposals will be considered by the artistic directors, and recommendations will be put forth to the FRC Board to be made official.
Submitters whose proposals are approved by the board will be contacted to confirm interest, and FRC will work to secure rights and negotiate royalties. When all rights are secured, all submitters will be contacted to inform them that a decision as to the new season has been made, and that a season announcement will be forthcoming.

Thank you for your interest in Front Row Centre Players!
