Casting Has Begun
The casting call has been put out and the headshots and resumes have been pouring in. The auditions are being set and the director anticipates seeing a total of 130 people to play the 9 parts in the show! The talent that has been submitting for the show is mind-blowing.
Here is the casting call that was put out:
Sonnet Repertory Theatre
Co-Artistic Directors: Todd Loyd and Tiffany Little Canfield
ONE is an original rock musical based both on the iconic novel Siddhartha and the uniquely personal story of its author, Herman Hesse. Employing eastern and western musical influences, ONE explores the timeless quest for human understanding, the lines that separate fact and fiction, and the singular responsibility an artist holds in service of their art.
SRT is only accepting submissions for ONE. Strong rock and pop voices with excellent harmony abilities are encouraged to submit. Experience with East Indian styles of music is a plus. We are looking for a rich multicultural cast. ONE will be presented under the AEA Showcase Code, approval pending.
Auditions for ONE will be held on June 27 and 28, by appointment only. Rehearsals begin on July 27 and will perform at 59E59 Theaters for one week beginning on Tuesday, August 24 through to Sunday, August 30.
Music & Lyrics: Wade McCollum
Book: Kristin Steele
Musical Director: Karl Mansfield
Director: Todd Loyd
