Stage Left Productions is seeking Colorado based actors ages 15-25 for a virtual concert of "Carrie: the Musical". We are especially looking to cast actors of color, queer actors, disabled, and neurodivergent actors. All rehearsals will be taking place over Zoom to ensure the safety of all participants. The livestream of the final production video will go up on Friday, October 30th, 2020. All ticket proceeds will be donated to The Loveland Foundation, providing no-cost therapy for women and girls of color.
Rehearsals will be scheduled around music director, director, and actor's availability. Auditioners should either be able to read music, or learn music really well on their own, as most of the music will be learned/rehearsed on your own. The music director will have one set rehearsal with each individual performer in the cast in order for them to get to know their music better. Any additional rehearsals will need to be scheduled between the music director and that specific performer. Performers will be expected to record themselves singing their tracks and submit to the director by Friday, October 23rd. The videos will be edited together into the final product.
For your audition, please submit a video of yourself singing a 16-32 bar cut of a contemporary musical theatre song in the style of the show. If your video is too large to submit here, please send it directly to email@example.com. ALL AUDITIONS ARE DUE BY SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 27th AT 11:59 PM. No late videos will be accepted.

Carrie White, Mezzo-Soprano
A painfully shy outsider who, in spite of her best efforts to belong, has been the victim of her classmates’ cruel
jokes since childhood, as well as her mother’s strict, biblically-ordained control at home. She transforms from
ugly duckling into graceful – and then vengeful – swan. Vocally, she must be capable of lyrical sweetness as
well as fierce power.
Margaret White, Soprano
A woman of visceral extremes, she balances her fervent religious convictions with equally sincere true-believer
spirituality and tender, maternal love for Carrie. Like Carrie, with whom she shares several duets, her voice
must range from expressive and melodic to ferocious and frightening.
Sue Snell, Mezzo-Soprano
A straight-A student who’s been popular her entire life, she’s remarkably level headed for her age. Her
unthinking participation in a cruel act of bullying causes a crisis of conscience that leads her on a journey to try
to right things. Vocally, she has a pop ballad voice that delivers sweet sincerity and strength.
Chris Hargensen, Mezzo-Soprano
Rich, spoiled-rotten, and wickedly funny, Chris is a popular beauty whose arrogant self-assurance makes her
believe that the rules don’t apply to her. Loaded with sexual dynamite, she has serious daddy and anger management issues. Her voice is pop-rock percussive and powerful.
Tommy Ross, Tenor
Popular star athlete, valedictorian, and all around stand-out, he’s the boy that all the girls want to be with, and
all the boys want to be. Yet he also has unexpected, quirky sensitivity and is just starting to mine his personal
life and feelings – a budding poet. His voice should have an effortless pop quality.
Billy Nolan, Baritone
Now in his sixth year in high school, Billy’s a sexy, stupid-like-a-fox bad boy whose wise mouth troublemaking
has led him to spend more time in detention than in class. All these qualities make it easy for his girlfriend Chris
to manipulate him to do her bidding. His voice is that of a wailing rocker.
Sue’s brainy pal, she’s an easy-going, get-along follower and a tireless extracurricular committee volunteer.
Bitchy, gossipy, and a shameless suck-up to authority, Norma is second-in-command to Chris’ queen bee.
Giggly and easily shocked, her immaturity and need to belong make her the perfect example of the herd
Tommy’s jock wingman since childhood, George idolizes him. Perhaps a little too much…
A bit of a nerd, he’s happy to be included as one of Tommy’s posse.
The wise-cracking class clown and official yearbook photographer, he can’t believe any girl would ever give
him the time of day.
