Brant is casting UNNECESSARY FARCE (on Stage September 11th thru 20th) – ( which needs seven very fit and energetic characters to romp through a new zany farce of a police-sting/ 3 – men / 4 women/’20s to 40); and then TERMS OF ENDEARMENT (on Stage January 22nd through 31st) Stage Adaptation of film needing 3 women and 3 men, acting out roles of entanglement over a period of 30 years.

Kevin Frakes will hold an open audition for the fall drama, THE MIRACLE WORKER (PLAYING October 23RD THRU NOV 1st) on Saturday, August 22nd at 10 am. The classic story of stage and screen of Helen Keller and her teacher, calls for five females and 3 males, and a small ensemble of young females attending the school for the blind. Frakes will do some sensory-based relationship exercises with those wishing to audition for ” Annie Sullivan” or ” Helen” – and also some cold readings from the script. * Note – this production is slated for competition on the state and perhaps regional level and MAY require a commitment for re-staging through June of 2021
Kevin Frakes will hold auditions for the December Musical SISTER ACT (PLAYING December 11TH THRU 20TH) on Saturday, September 26th at 10 am and Sunday, September 27th at 2 pm –the mad-cap comedic gem of a show based on the 1992 film of the same name calls for at least a dozen “sisters” of the habit and another ten roles (at least) for actors who can dance, sing, and handle multiple roles, including some big-time-low-life gangster types! Those auditioning are asked to bring a prepared song (their own accompaniment) and be ready to learn an easy dance routine.
The ALT Showplace is located at 2450 North Henry Street in Alton, Illinois –it’s worth the drive to come and play!
