Auditions by appointment will be held on Thursday, December 29th, beginning at 7:00 pm at Montclair Operetta Club, 494 Valley Road, Montclair, NJ.

TAKE ONE is the story of the disastrous, hilarious first versions of three great things we are all familiar with. It’s a history-spanning musical comedy that explores the struggles that come with the act of creation, even for the gods.
ROLES TO BE CAST:
Act One: “The Ballad of God”
ADAM – as depicted in the Book of Genesis and classical art
Act Two: “The Ludovico Technique”
MICHELANGELO – 28-year-old paint-spattered mad genius (tenor) – think Georges Seurat
LUDOVICO – 17-year-old man-of-all-work hired by Pope Julius – a boy toy
PAPAL SECRETARY-CHAMBERLAIN – Vatican herald
LEONARDO DA VINCI – Eminent Renaissance man
RAPHAEL – Young, absurdly handsome Court painter
SAVONAROLA – Tonsured Dominican friar; inquisitorial
Act Three: “Intervention!”
RICHARD RODGERS (“DICK”) – 41-year-old neurotic composer
OSCAR HAMMERSTEIN – 48-year-old lyricist, “cockeyed optimist” and family man
ROUBEN MAMOULIAN – Middle-aged director-producer; Russian accent
HOWARD DA SILVA – 34-year-old character actor and “heavy” (bass-baritone a la Jud Fry)
LORENZ HART (“LARRY”) – Diminutive, balding 48-year-old alcoholic. But lovely.
4th Wall is seeking a strong adult cast (17 and over) of at least 7 terrific actors/singers/movers to double and triple the various roles in the three acts (see character list below).
