New York, NY
Dear STSANY Members,
Several events are being planned which may interest you:
1) SHOWCASE - during the last two weeks of June in a public space: To perform on the showcase, you must attend several meetups beginning this month, so that we may hear and see you perform your songs and monologues/scenes. (Details later). We will help you choose appropriate material, and provide coaching at the meetups and rehearsals. We are including solos, duos, trios, monologues and scenes which could include you, other STSANY members, and possibly non-member friends and colleagues. Please send me an email with your bio and suggestions for your musical/dramatic pieces;
2) A COMIC MUSICAL FOR ALL AGES: MONSTERS: THE BEAST THINGS IN LIFE. This is slated for Fall performances during the Halloween holiday in theaters and other venues. A partially-staged reading will be given in the summer, following auditions to begin in May (TBA). STSANY will be collaborating with Felt Theater in this production. Attendance at several meetups and rehearsals is required.
We are looking for both trained legit singers and actors with some stage experience, as well as others with minimal experience. If interested in participating, please email me a short bio of your previous experience, training and voice type, and tell us which character you think you are suited to play. We also need a stage manager and other people to work on production, i.e., costumes, make-up, etc.
MONSTERS is both a hilarious, zany and poignant musical play about our favorite monsters, in a competition, who discover the importance of friendship, loyalty, self-realization and self-esteem. It features the following characters:
Dracula (a Romanian count of no account)
Dracula's Bride, Sangria (a Latin American bombshell)
Mummy (shy, but determined to "find herself")
Frankenstein (a big, clumsy lug, afraid of his own shadow)
Werewolf (a hairy, hip, but ridiculous rock singer)
Chorus of Ghosts
Other characters (TBA)
3) OTHER EVENTS: STSANY would like your suggestions and notices about performances around town that we could attend together, socially, as a meetup event. Please let us know when you or your friends are performing and we will schedule a meetup. Or suggest other things we could do together.
4) FIND A NAME FOR OUR LOGO LADY: Suggestions are welcome!
SEE YOU ON TUESDAY, APRIL 19TH!
Wishing you all a happy holiday,

I'm possibly interested in the Showcase. When will you schedule the meetups to screen/prepare for the showcase?
