Inspecting Carol

by Daniel J. Sullivan

Directed by David Morden

Almost bankrupt, the little Soapbox Theatre Company struggles to mount its annual cash cow, the Charles Dickens classic, A Christmas Carol. An inspector from the National Endowment for the Arts is due to show up any second, but when a new actor arrives to audition and is mistaken for the inspector, the acting troupe caters to his every whim to try to collect desperately needed funding. This play within a play contains gut-busting comedy and you will never be able to look at the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present or Future in the same way again – ever.

This show is rated PG, but children age 5 & under are NOT allowed into the theatre.

THE STANDBYS - inde doc about Broadway understudies and standbys - screenings

The following message is forwarded from the director of THE STANDBYS:

 

Dear Tucson Theatre Announcements,

 

THE STANDBYS - our independent documentary film about Broadway understudies and standbys that is being given a limited theatrical release in your area. The film follows the lives of three Broadway standbys who have to prepare themselves each night but never go on and whom Nathan Lane declared "stars in their own right." The challenges of these unsung heroes are put into perspective with interviews from various industry insiders and celebrities.

 

Having gone to university to study Directing for the theatre at Carnegie Mellon, I know how incredibly hard it is to have a career in the performing arts! I believe that the struggles and triumphs revealed in THE STANDBYS will connect with your students and inspire them in a very challenging industry.

 

I am writing you today to enlist your support. The film is scheduled for a limited theatrical release in your area Friday Nov. 9th through Thursday Nov. 15th. I would love to find the best way to enable everyone to see the film while it's in theaters. I can put you in touch with bulk discounts on tickets are available as well as a select number of free VIP passes. We will also be doing live Q&As in all the theaters so your students will have a chance to ask me and the featured performers questions.

 

And I am most proud of our very special "Pay it Forward" program in which students in need can receive ticket to go see THE STANDBYS from anonymous donors. If you believe you have students or classes who could not afford tickets and we will attempt to match them with donors.

 

Below are some of the films press clippings and you can see the TRAILER HERE. There's also more information on our website www.TheStandbys.com

 

I look forward to hearing back from you about how we can help you see THE STANDBYS! And If there's someone else I should be in touch with, please let me know. 

 

All the best,

Stephanie Riggs

Actors needed for a Western THIS WEEKEND!!!

 

Location: Pinnacle Peak

6541 East Tanque Verde Road, Tucson, AZ

 

Time: 12:30pm to 4pm for actors     12:30pm to 3pm for extras

 

I am shooting a Western Comedy short film no more than 5 mins in length. I am looking for extras for silent bits, and possibly two main actors.

 

For extras: Western Clothing from the wild west is all that is required. 

 

For main actors, head shots or body shots are recommended:

1/. Crane (The bad evil cool cowboy): A black cowboy costume, can be coat or shirt, I have the hat provided. A revolver on belt is a plus!

2/. George (The circus guy): Energetic, happy, wear something that is western.

 

Shooting is Saturday Oct 27th. Extras are needed from 12:30pm to approximately 2pm or 3pm. Actors will need from 12:30pm to approximately 4pm. 

 

There will be no compensation, but if he/she lives too far away I can pay for gas. The actors and extras however will get a certain percentage of whatever the film may earn. If it wins grand prize, it can be anywhere around $40 - $200.
