HADESTOWN Runs April 18-30

Broadway in Cincinnati
April 18-30
Aronoff Center Procter & Gamble Hall [Downtown]

HADESTOWN intertwines two mythic tales — that of young dreamers Orpheus and Eurydice, and that of King Hades and his wife Persephone — as it invites you on a hell-raising journey to the underworld and back. Mitchell’s beguiling melodies and Chavkin’s poetic imagination pit industry against nature, doubt against faith, and fear against love. Performed by a vibrant ensemble of actors, dancers and singers, HADESTOWN is a haunting and hopeful theatrical experience that grabs you and never lets go.

Auditions Announced for SILENCE the Musical at CenterStage Players

CSP_logoCenterStage Players presents SILENCE! the Musical (the unauthorized parody of The Silence of the Lambs)

*R-rated. STRONG language*
In the beloved and still frightening classic movie, rookie FBI agent Clarice Starling matches wits with the brilliant but insane cannibal, Dr. Hannibal Lecter, to catch the serial killer known only as Buffalo Bill. The infamous and hair-raising thriller has kept countless millions on the edges of their seats for decades! And now, at last, this delicate symphony of suspense has been turned on its ear and retold in the only way it can be – as a musical! A singing chorus of adorable yet frightening floppy-eared lambs narrates the action; Buffalo Bill gleefully dances a hoedown while kidnapping the hapless Catherine Martin; and even Dr. Lecter, scary as ever, sings about the life he’d like to lead someday outside the prison walls. Deliriously tasty, the original lewd, lyrical and laugh-your-butt-off horror musical kills!

*Extreme comedic ability is needed. Super camp*

Clarice Starling (alto) – *MUST perform with lisp*
A student at the FBI Academy. She hopes to work at the Behavioral Science Unit, tracking down serial killers and ultimately apprehending them. Her mentor, Jack Crawford, sends her to interview Dr. Hannibal Lecter. The character is commonly portrayed as having a lisp.

Dr. Hannibal Lecter (bari-tenor) – A brilliant psychiatrist and cannibalistic serial killer who helps Clarice out in her investigation and eventually escapes prison in a bloody massacre.

Catherine Baker Martin (soprano) – Daughter of Senator Ruth Martin, kidnapped and imprisoned by “Buffalo Bill”.

Jack Crawford (bass-baritone) – The Agent-in-Charge of the Behavioral Science Unit of the FBI in Quantico, Virginia.

Ardelia Mapp (mezzo-soprano) – Roommate of Clarice Starling and also a student at the FBI Academy who helps her out in the investigation. African American actress.

Dr. Frederick Chilton (high baritone) – The pompous, incompetent director of the Chesapeake State Hospital for the Criminally Insane and later Baltimore Hospital for the Criminally Insane. There, he is the jailer of Hannibal Lecter.

Papa Starling (baritone) – Clarice’s deceased father who appears to her in visions to encourage her in carrying out the investigation. A Virginia sheriff who was killed during a robbery.

Senator Ruth Martin (soprano) – National senator and mother of Catherine, who pleads for Buffalo Bill to release her daughter on national television and arranges for Lecter to be transferred to a lighter security prison in Baltimore in exchange for information on the killer. Normally plays Catherine as well but might split the roles for this production.

Chorus – Every character except Clarice plays multiple roles in the show. The chorus is on stage for every number. Strong comedic ability needed.

***It is strongly recommended to listen to the cast album for the show with the link below in order to get the feel and comedic style. The role of Clarice MUST have the lisp and accent displayed on the cast recording***


Auditions will be held on April 16th beginning at 5pm.
Callbacks will be held April 17th beginning at 7.

Anyone who cannot make April 16th can contact director Sean Walker-Mize to schedule a time on April 17th before callbacks. Video submissions will also be accepted.

Cast Announced for ESCANABA IN DA MOONLIGHT at Mason Community Players

MCP_sm logoDirector Ray Lebowski, Producer Laureen Catlin and Asst. Producer Mary Stan Fizer are excited to welcome six talented performers to the cast of ESCANABA IN DA MOONLIGHT.

The cast includes:

  • Mark Culp as Albert Soady
  • Stephen Catlin as Reuben Soady
  • Justin Hanks as Remnar Soady
  • Matt Lovell as Jimmer Negamanee
  • Jim Cronin and Ranger Tom T. Treado
  • Jessie Faye as Moon Dance Soady

Dana Davis will serve as Stage Manager for the show.

Escanaba is a snapshot into the lives of the Soady men. Retreating to their “home away from home” in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan they can spend time together doing their two favorite things … drinking and bagging bucks. At 35, though, Reuben Soady is in danger of being the oldest family member in history without a buck to call his own. Laughs abound as you get a glimpse into this traditional male rite of passage as lived out in the unique “Yooper” way.

ESCANABA IN DA MOONLIGHT will be performed September 8, 9, 14, 15, 16 at 8:00 PM and September 10 at 2:00 PM in the Mason Community Playhouse.
