We are one month away from auditions for the final show of Renegade Theater Company’s 2012 season, and this one is a doozy. “Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson” was nominated for a handful of Drama Desk, Outer Critics Circle and Tony Awards. But what’s it about? Well, imagine if the writing staff of The Daily Show wrote a rock musical about America’s first political maverick, Andrew Jackson. Doesn’t that sound like a kick-ass time? Yeah. It is. And YOU can be a part of it!
We are looking for comic actors who can sing a little rock and roll, and who can do a little dancing. Let’s make that even more clear. We are looking for ACTORS who can sing and dance, not dancers or singers who can act. No need to be intimidated by a bunch of fluffy ballet leaps or ear-shattering high notes in this show. We want bold, funny actors who can pull their own belting out some rough-and-tumble rock and roll while moving to the beat.
We need men and women of all ages and types, ALL ROLES ARE OPEN.
The show opens on Halloween and closes the week before Thanksgiving. It’s going to be a fast and fun rehearsal process and a hell of a way to close out our 2012 season. So come audition for us, won’t you? The audition details are below, along with a little sneak peek of what the show is like:
Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson
Book by Alex Timbers
Music and Lyrics by Michael Friedman
Directed by Katy Helbacka
Music Direction by Adam Sippola
Choreography by Amber Burns
Conducted by Patrick Colvin
Come hear the true story of America’s first political maverick, but leave the textbooks and bring some black eyeliner. A.J. kicked British butt, shafted the Indians and smacked down the Spaniards all in the name of these United States – who cares if he didn’t have permission? An exhilarating and white-knuckled look at one of our nation’s founding rock stars, this hysterical musical recreates and reinvents the life of “Old Hickory,” from his humble beginnings on the Tennessee frontier to his days as Commander-in-Chief. It also asks the question; Is wanting to have a beer with someone reason enough to elect him? What if he’s really, really hot?
