8  TPS Message Boards (requires ID & Password to post) / Employment / Music Director and Choreographer for OKLAHOMA! on: December 22, 2017, 03:08:40 PM
Wheatland Theatre Co. in Davenport WA seeks a music director and choreographer for our upcoming production of Oklahoma!

Key dates
May TBD: Ensemble dance rehearsals begin (1-2 days/wk)*
June 10: Full rehearsals begin (6 days/wk—evenings weekends)
July 17-23: Performances

*Because of the range of experience levels of our casts, we hope to give our local ensemble some advance rehearsals and are ideally looking for a Northwest-based choreographer who can travel to Davenport 1-2 days per week (with housing provided and travel expenses reimbursed), but this is flexible.

Competitive fee DOE, plus travel and housing as applicable.

About us
WTC is the only nonprofit arts organization in Lincoln County, WA—a county with 10,000 people in an area twice the size of Rhode Island. Lincoln County is the country’s #2 producer of wheat. It’s the least racially, religiously, and politically diverse county in the State of Washington—which is exactly why we think it’s important to do theatre there… and why we’re particularly interested in hiring artists of color or with other diverse backgrounds. Spokane is the closest city, about 45 minutes away.

WTC is a community theatre, and our casts are often made up of middle-aged farmers and teachers who have never been onstage before (yes, there will be real-life “farmers and cowmen” in this cast). Three years ago, we launched a guest artist program, which brings a small number of professional theatre artists from around the country to mentor and work alongside local volunteers on one production a year.

The show

Other guest artists for Oklahoma! include a director (Lee Mikeska-Gardner, artistic director of The Nora Theatre Company, a mid-sized Equity company in the Boston area), one designer, and two actors (at least one on an AEA Guest Artist contract).

While we are still developing the concept for this production, we hope to create a fresh, story-driven take on this classic story that will subvert expectations about what a community theatre production of Oklahoma! in a town of 1,700 people looks like. One aspect we are exploring is connecting the story to the local community. As part of this, we are interested in possibly developing an acoustic/bluegrass/Americana-inspired orchestration to this classic score.

To apply
Please email Managing Director Drew Kowalkowski at with a résumé and a note expressing your interest and relating your experience to this project.

“Michael's workshop is a delight to experience. His expertise, sense of humor, and just old-fashioned good sense does the impossible: It actually makes the actor comfortable with the audition process.”  —J. R. Orlando, San Jose
“The seminar with Michael Kostroff may have been the absolutely most important one of my career.”  —Edwin de Castro, D.C.

13  TPS Message Boards (requires ID & Password to post) / Project Promotion / Naomi Mercer Voice: New Free Closed Facebook Group on: July 18, 2017, 11:38:08 AM
Sponsor Message From Naomi Mercer:

Dearest fellow performers of the Puget Sound region,

Is this year flying by or WHAT?!  Between politics, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, and summer FINALLY coming to us after the most grueling winter ever, I feel like I've never had more distractions in my life.  Enjoying summer is a welcome distraction.  But the rest of it doesn't really make me any money or help me move forward with my goals.  So before another day escapes us, I want to get my closed Facebook group in the mix. 

You might ask, "What's so special about a closed Facebook group?"

Welp, for starters, it's FREEEEEE:)  It's also very interactive--people participate in discussions, give each other tips, and talk about what's going on right now in the industry.  You can get advice from either myself or another vo actor that might be a couple levels above you.  Or, if you're feeling generous, you can give advice to someone with less experience than you.  Calling it "closed" only means that not just anyone can join.  It's for two types of people - people who are serious about becoming a working voice over talent or people who are currently working regularly in the field.

Plus there are some very simple rules that keep things nuttin' but productive:)  Stuff like no self promotion except during designated times, or topics for the day - like Workin' Wednesday (Whatcha workin' on?) or Goal Digger Friday (What are your goals this week?) - so we can spark discussions that everyone can learn something from.

I've only recently learned how helpful closed groups are.  For my recording and editing, I use Adobe Audition and I joined the closed group for it, Inside Audition.  It's great for posting questions when I'm stumped with the software.  Sometimes I just read through all the posts because I learn so much!  Plus the developers are on there all the time and they chime in regularly. 

If you ask me a question on this new closed Facebook group, I can give you an answer that everyone can see and learn from.  It's going to be awesome!  Fellow voice over colleagues, I give you the Voice Over Talent Collective (you can call it the VOTC for short).

See you there!!
