NMI is casting for twelve musicals

New Musicals Inc is presenting twelve (count ’em 12!) musicals at this year’s Hollywood Fringe Festival.  We have lots of roles to fill, of every age and ethnicity and vocal range.  Come and audition for us on Sunday, March 5 from 2pm to 6pm at New Musicals Inc.   We’re also casting for upcoming readings and workshops; for our biennial STAGES Festival; and for projects and demo recordings with our writer members.

The auditions will be attended by the NMI producers, directors, and staff, as well as writer members of the Academy for New Musical Theatre who may be looking for performers for their writer-produced readings, workshops, productions, or demos.

Have questions about what it means for union and non-union performers to get involved with NMI?  


GENERAL AUDITIONS: Sun, Mar 5 from 2:00 pm to 6:00 pm

Prior to your audition, make sure you update your resume information by clicking the UPDATE YOUR PROFILE INFO button on your NMI Account Home Page, and then scrolling down to the PERFORMER INFO section of the profile page.  You can choose to make your resume info public by signing up for the Talent Bank, but you do NOT need to do to take part in an NMI General Audition.  However, you should definitely fill out your profile info for our records, whether you are signing up for the Talent Bank or not.

At the audition, you will be asked to present 16 bars from two contrasting songs, and one 1 minute contemporary monologue.

Please bring at least one picture and resume for the staff to review - but also know that all of the participants will have access to your resume information on line. NOTE that no one will have access to your personal contact information, but they will be able to contact you through your NMI account.
