Actors singing actresses’ showstoppers, young women filling old men’s roles and seniors playing ingénues. You don't want to miss your chance to be part of this evening of madcap musical magic. Join us for a hilarious mix-up of performers singing songs from roles in which they would NEVER be cast.
MISCAST CABARET will be performed, one night only, at King Avenue UMC on Saturday, May 11.
Sunday, March 24 at 6:30pm
Monday, March 25 at 6:30pm
at King Avenue UMC
Individuals and groups are encouraged to audition. Those auditioning will be asked to perform the song they would like to sing in the MISCAST CABARET. Songs should be from any Broadway musical. An accompanist will be provided.
Those cast in the MISCAST CABARET may be asked to learn and participate in a group number. They may also be asked to learn individual solos and/or duets. While music will be reviewed in rehearsal, participants are responsible for learning their own music.
Rehearsals will be 6:30-9pm (unless otherwise noted) at King Ave UMC on the following days:
Monday, April 15 – Group number(s)
Tuesday, April 16 – Group numbers(s)
Monday, April 22 – Group number(s) for half of rehearsal

Sunday, April 28 – HOLD (if add’l rehearsal is needed)

Monday, May 6 – in sanctuary
Friday, May 10 – Dress rehearsal, time TBD
It is likely that participants won't have to be at every rehearsal for the entire time. After auditions a detailed rehearsal schedule will be distributed.
This is non-equity and unpaid.
MISCAST CABARET will be directed by Lisa Minken and Barb Shoulders. The show will be choreographed by Lauren Heberling. For any questions about auditions, please contact Lisa Minken at firstname.lastname@example.org.
