Performances at Cafe Caffeine, 909 West Mary Street, Austin, starting April 9. Need two talented females with strong and versatile singing voices who have simple acoustic folk guitar skills (at least) and can play ages 20-40, adept at both comedy and drama. Also need one male (playing ages 40-60), very strong stage presence, good singer; does not need to play an instrument. Actors must be able to learn songs in many different genres. “Chanteuse” is the compelling and moving story of two young folk singers and their relationship to their art, their agent, each other, fame, and being true to one’s self set against the backdrop of the rise of folk music, the onset of the Civil Rights movement, and the political landscape of the United States from 1959-1982. Auditions are by appointment, January 10 and 11, 2010, at Cafe Caffeine. Please come prepared to sing one folk song and one Broadway-type song. The script and MP3s of all the songs in “Chanteuse” can be found at Performers are invited and encouraged to learn songs from “Chanteuse” instead of bringing unrelated songs to the audition.
