Seeking Accompanist/Pianist ACTOR

Centerstage Theatre

About the project and the company

Centerstage is working on a socially distanced and safe-for-artists version of A 1940’s Radio Christmas Carol.

We are seeking a skilled pianist who is also an actor. This character has no specified age range, race, or gender.

During the rehearsal period, you would be present as an actor and also as a Music Director, although we have modified the role for safety and efficacy. The MD will provide quick tracks to the actors, who will be primarily responsible for their own material and expected to come to rehearsals completely prepared. There will be no group music rehearsals.

One the show opens, the artist will be onstage, playing and performing the lines of the character. There are no other instrumentalists in the show, so pit direction is not necessary.

Show dates Nov 27 – Dec 20, subject to change. 


Character description:

Toots Navarre – Musical Director, composer, pianist. Provides all the music needs for WOV Radio shows. Married.

Location of Audition

Virtual only.

Other details

Centerstage Theatre creates equitable opportunities on stage and off. Diversity is the way forward, and we hire artists of all races, ethnicities, disabilities, identities, orientations, ages, and physicalities. You are welcome here.

Audition requirements

Virtual auditions will include a cold reading and a cut of a piano piece (artist's choice). A small bit of piano improv may be involved.

Character breakdown / Project needs
Comedic timing a plus. While there aren't many lines to memorize, the actor IS onstage the entire show and interacts with what's happening.
Must be a skilled pianist.
Light Music Direction
Should be able to make sure vocalists are on track with their pieces.
