Casting & Creatives
The Seventh Annual Festival
of 10-Minute Musicals
April 22, 2020 at 7:00pm
at Kaufman Music Center
Writers are responsible for finding their Creative Team & Actors. As SOUND BITES is a festival for the betterment of writers and their work, unless a writer wrote their piece as a vehicle exclusively for themselves, we do not recommend a writer to perform or direct their own piece. We feel it’s important that the script be able to stand on its own, as they benefit participating solely as writers.
Director: We have a number of directors we know who have contacted us who are interested in directing pieces in the festival. We would probably be able to match a writing team up with someone if need be.
Music Director: A composer can/may choose to act as their show’s own Music Director or we can help you find one if needed. However, many of the composers choose to music direct their own pieces.
Actors: Actors can be Union, Non-Union, or a combination of both. We can help with casting through our files. Most actors, even some highly accomplished with Broadway credits, will usually be willing to work on a new piece. However, you will need to work around their schedules. (TEN ACTORS MAX)
Choreographer: This position is not required and is at your discretion if you choose to work with one.
Musicians: Each creative team is responsible for providing their own musicians at their discretion pending their show’s needs. (FOUR MUSICIANS MAX)
Stage Manager: For the first time in the festival, each musical will be provided a stage manager. A total of four stage managers will be provided by the producers for all shows. Each stage manager will be assigned two shows each, and work as crew or backstage during the performance.
Theatre Now New York can help you find artists to fill these roles, if necessary. We can put an ad in Playbill, Backstage, and/or Breakdown Services. We will provide you with the headshots & resumes we receive and we may suggest artists we know and/or have worked with previously.
