Casting Call, red haired male actor age 17 to 26

-----Original Message-----
Sent: Thursday, May 26, 2016 7:55 PM

Call for actor:
Big Fat Cat Productions LLC is seeking a male actor ages 17 to 26. We need
a true red haired actor, dark or light red is okay. Straight or curly ok.
This would be for one scene for now which may have to be shot more than once
over a few months so it would be best if you either lived here or were in
Tucson often. There is no pay but food is provided. The reason it may have
to be shot more than once is that we would like to "four wall" it possibly
in LA if it is strong enough. Or it may become part of a short.

The scene is called The Sadness Jar (this is an upbeat and actually funny
scene)- and is lifted from a larger script called The Summer of Going to
God. The scene involves a worldly wise 20 something male who is also
world-weary. Both he and his female co-actor are living in a loose sort of
cult in Queens NY in the 70's. This is a purely interior scene in a room.
The young woman is about 16 (we have that actor already) and she has a ton
of sadness coming up because he is really showing her his heart and how he
feels about all sorts of things and not just towing the cult "line." She is
lost and he is not.

Auditions would be by appointment and most likely in a large rehearsal type
room in a library Central. If interested please send any headshot or phone
pic to with a resume and contact number.
Shooting may not occur until July or August. Some rehearsal would be
necessary. Thanks so much for considering.

The Santa Cruz Shoestring Players 2016-2017 Season

Announcing our 2016-2017 Season

The Santa Cruz Shoestring Players' Ninth Season...


Someone Who'll Watch Over Me

Play Frank McGuiness

November 4-5, 11-12 at 7:00 PM

November 13 at 3PM

Tickets: $20 in advance - $25 at door

*Contains Strong Language


This powerful and moving play, set in Beirut, Lebanon in the 1980s, is based on a true story. In the perma-darkness of a windowless room, with one ankle shackled, English academic Michael, Irish journalist Edward, and American doctor Adam wonder what they have done to deserve captivity and when, if ever, they might see their loved ones again. Having little contact with their unseen captors, and none whatsoever with the outside world, the men use dark humor and their vivid imaginations to forge their own reality within the walls of their cell. As victims of political action, powerless to initiate change, what can they do? How do they live and survive? Filled with humor and pathos, Someone Who'll Watch Over Me is ultimately a remarkable celebration of the human spirit. This play was first staged in July 1992 at the Hampstead Theater in London. It was later produced on Broadway at the Booth Theater and ran for almost 300 performances. This production is directed by Amanda Urbaniak.


Private Lives

By Noel Coward

January 20-21, 27-28 at 7:00 PM

January 22 and 29 at 3PM

Tickets: $20 in advance - $25 at door

Private Lives is one of the most sophisticated, entertaining plays ever written. Elyot and Amanda, once married and now honeymooning with new spouses at the same hotel, meet by chance, reignite the old spark and impulsively elope. After days of being reunited, they again find their fiery romance alternating between passions of love and anger. When discovered by their jilted lovers, all four individuals find themselves in the midst of the most compromising of situations.

Brilliant and witty, Noel Coward's comedy of manners is a delightful romp. Since its premiere at the Kings Theatre in Edinburgh in 1930, this uniquely humorous play boasts numerous successful Broadway runs with such as stars Coward himself, Laurence Olivier, Tallulah Bankhead, Gertrude Lawrence, Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor. This production is directed by Susan Voorhees. 



See How They Run

By Philip King


March 31-April 1, April 7-8 at 7:00 PM

April 2 and 9 at 3PM

Tickets: $20 in advance - $25 at door

See How They Run is an uproarious comedy set in the idyllic village of Merton-cum-Middlewick, England during the 1940s. It's World War II, and the village inhabitants are preparing themselves for the imminent threat of Nazi invasion. Meanwhile, resident spinster, Miss Skillon, becomes convinced that her beloved vicar's actress wife is having an affair and attempts to expose her. Add an escaped German prisoner of war, a Russian spy, a handsome actor, the visiting Bishop of Lax, a rotund locum priest and some meddling neighbors and hilarious confusion and mayhem result. This production is directed by Susan Ford. 


Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor® Dreamcoat

By Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber


June 16, 23-24 at 7:00 PM

June 17 and 25 at 3PM

Tickets: $20 in advance/$10 for youth – all tickets $25 at door

One of the most enduring shows of all time, Tim Rice & Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat is an irresistible family musical about the trials and triumphs of Joseph, a boy blessed with prophetic dreams. When he is sold into slavery by his jealous brothers and taken to Egypt, Joseph endures a series of adventures in which his spirit and humanity are continually challenged. This magical musical is full of unforgettable songs, including Go Go Go Joseph, Any Dream Will Do and Close Every Door. Set to an engaging cornucopia of musical styles, from country-western and calypso to bubble-gum pop and rock 'n' roll, this Old Testament tale emerges both timely and timeless. This production is directed by Marcy Miller with musical direction by Claire Phillips.

2016-17 Season:


JULIUS CAESAR by William Shakespeare

Adapted and Directed by Michael Fenlason


Production Run: October 20-November 5, 2016


William Shakespeare's Julius Caesar is a raw and timeless study of power, conspiracy, murder, and revenge.

Directed by Susan Arnold


Production Run: March 16-April 9, 2017


In this lyrical, bittersweet comedy, George, a linguist consumed with preserving the dying languages of far-flung cultures, is losing his chance to preserve another language when its last two speakers refuse to talk to each other. In his own life however, language is failing him. He has no words to express how he feels toward his wife and is entirely oblivious of his lab assistant and her deep feelings for him.

Please join us for our Spring Show, this Saturday May 28th at 4:00. It is going to be really fun and a great way to support the Circus Academy. Recitals are our only planned fundraisers throughout the year and I hope that everyone can come out, donate and enjoy the show. Every dollar helps us keep this amazing space running! All of our students have worked really hard, accomplished so much and have a great show in store for you!



Summer Camp will run June 6th-15th. If you can't catch our spring show, we will have camp recitals on June 18th and July 2nd as well as our Advanced Camp Show July 16th. This promises to be a great show put together by some very talented kids and I hope everyone can make it. All shows will be at 4:00. 


In addition to Summer Camp, we will have our Evening Summer Intensive beginning June 6th and running for 9 weeks. This is a great way for students (of all ages, but geared towards adults) to jump into circus training or focus on building their skills. It will be a really great way to keep training through the summer.


As always, I hope you reach out with any questions or comments and we see everyone at an event soon!!!
