Announcing our next show: Ordinary Days

facebook_event AUDITION (1)

We are pleased to announce our next show, ORDINARY DAYS.

“From one of musical theatre’s most exciting new composers comes ORDINARY DAYS, a refreshingly honest and funny musical about making real connections in the city that never sleeps (but probably should at some point.) ORDINARY DAYS tells the story of four young New Yorkers whose lives intersect as they search for fulfillment, happiness, love and cabs. Through a score of vibrant and memorable songs, their experiences ring startlingly true to life. ORDINARY DAYS is an original musical for anyone who’s ever struggled to appreciate the simple things in a complex place. With equal doses of humor and poignancy, it celebrates how 8.3 million individual stories combine in unexpected ways to make New York City such a unique and extraordinary home.”
– Rodgers and Hammerstein show description

Performances will at In Tandem Theatre on March 25-26 and March 30-April 2 at 7:30 P.M., with 4:00 P.M. matinees on March 27 and April 3.

CHARACTER DESCRIPTIONS (From Wikipedia)

Claire

Claire is in her 30’s and is embarking on a new stage of her life with boyfriend Jason. The decision to share an apartment is the catalyst for Claire to face her past. Her cathartic “I’ll Be Here” provides the audience the final clue to her arc.

Required vocal range: Soprano

Jason

Jason is in his 30’s and is the boyfriend of Claire. A romantic at heart, he spends the bulk of the musical attempting to further his relationship, at first by moving in (“The Spaces Between”) and then by proposing. Claire consistently resists his attempts leading to the central conflict of their story arc (“Fine”).

Required vocal range: Tenor

Deb

In her mid twenties, Deb is a cynical and defensive grad student who is struggling to find focus in her life. She meets struggling artist Warren when he finds her thesis notes in the street.

Required vocal range: Mezzo

Warren

The cheerful and sometimes annoyingly optimistic Warren sees beauty in the simple things in life, delivering the musical’s message and final number (“Beautiful”).

Required vocal range: Tenor

New year, new website!

As we march forward into 2015, we at All In Productions are focused on taking the next steps forward as a theater company as well. We recently wrapped up our first ever show, The Last Five Years, and can’t wait to get started on our next one: Little Shop of Horrors. 

Part of expanding our presence in the Milwaukee theater community is enhancing our presence online as well. To that end, we’ve put together a brand new website that will be a great hub for information for interested auditionees and audience members alike.
