Songs for a new world

Songs for a New World presented by The Fleetwood Project Inc.

We are looking to cast a diverse, inclusive group of talented artists. All volunteer, non-equity roles. Dancers AND Singers. We encourage people to audition as both a singer and dancer if desired. 

SINGERS:

While this show is traditionally produced with 4 roles, we are looking to expand to up to 9 roles depending on auditions. 

Vocals for male presenting roles are in the baritone and tenor range.

Vocals for female presenting roles are in the soprano and mezzo-soprano range.

Every role will have ensemble responsibilities and perform as a featured soloist.

Strong acting skills are required to truly connect the stories within these songs to our audience.

DANCERS:

While this show is traditionally presented with just vocalists, we want to expand the show into a song and dance spectacular. Therefore we are looking to cast up to 8 dancers to perform as an ensemble throughout the show.

We are looking for dancers with a background in a variety of styles including contemporary, hip hop, and theatre jazz. You DO NOT have to sing as we are looking for a dance only ensemble.

The Show...

 It’s about one moment. It’s about hitting the wall and having to make a choice… or take a stand… or turn around and go back. These are the stories and characters of today, the Songs for a New World. The first musical from Tony Award winner, Jason Robert Brown (Parade, Bridges of Madison County), this moving collection of powerful songs examines life, love and the choices that we make.
