Pullman.vs.Paxton Productions General Auditions
About the project and the company
Calling all Misfits, Clowns, and Weirdos (and everyone in between!)
Hi. We’re PVP. We think a little differently. Are you a Veronica in a sea of Heathers? A Moritz in a room full of Anthonys? Maybe you just want to explore the musical theater landscape from a different angle? Dip your toe in modern reimaginings of the works that nourished your youth? Then we want to meet you!!! We are looking for actors, singers, and musicians to help us challenge the conventional notions of musical theater. Non-Traditional Casting Enthusiasts. Fellow appreciators of the intersection between low and high brow art. Worshipers at the altar of DIY and punk tradition.
Our 2023/2024 season is all about discovering “self” and includes an updated take on the classic musical Nine, a site specific staging of Carrie the Musical, and a third selection that is still TBD.
Pullman.vs.Paxton is a 501c3 non-profit group of musicians, actors, event producers, and artists. Our artistic mission is to draw upon our punk informed roots to create contemporary musical theatre that speaks to/reflects on modern day America. Our artistic selections speak to our vision of what the theater-going experience should be in 2023 – uninhibited and disruptive. Rule breaking.
As an extension of our artistic mission, we make sure to donate a large portion of our proceeds from each production to LGBTQ+ and LGBTQ+ ally non-profit agencies such as It Gets Better Project, Peace for the Streets by Kids from the Streets, Gay City Health Project, Freedom to Marry, and the Human Rights Campaign. Our most recent production of Heathers: The Musical in April 2018 had a sell out run and donated $3000 to It Gets Better Project.
Let’s get honest!! Let’s be rough around the edges!! Let’s get goofy!!
Goal of the Audition
Our goal is to experience YOU. Your personality, your particular flavor of sound, your musicality. When the magic comes out, we hope you give something that is very personal and free. We value authenticity over extreme preparedness. We are very lowkey and perfectionism isn’t a go-to in our vernacular. Don’t feel like you need to come in and nail it on the first try or have a super clean audition to be considered. We LOVE when you take risks. Our ideal audition situation is being able to see the human behind every performance. We want to know that our styles will be a good creative marriage and that we can meet each other with clear eyes and open hearts and minds.
