CAP UCLA, in partnership with LACO, welcomes back NYC’s SITI Company with an all-new production of Kurt Weill’s Lost in the Stars directed by Anne Bogart with music direction by Jeffrey Kahane. For his final Broadway score, Weill gave passionate voice to this powerful, uncompromising social indictment of apartheid South Africa. This production will also include the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, the chorus, and the principal singers (who include Lauren Michelle and Justin Hopkins).

ALEX – a young Zulu boy (so the role requires a boy of color) to sing a big number, The Big Mole, to be able to act a bit, and to join the chorus. Alex is approx. 13 – 16 years old.

Actor would need to be available for all of the Tutti rehearsals, and some of the rehearsals marked “SITI” for the acting parts, understanding that we can work with our stage manager to accommodate him on the SITI rehearsals as some of them conflict with school time. He would be required to be at the dress rehearsals and performances, of course.

We have a small budget for their compensation – $2,500 – plus parking passes at UCLA for whomever would drive him. All parts would need to be fully memorized, ideally, by the first rehearsal on Jan. 9. We understand that this rehearsal period may need to be altered due to the lateness of the inquiry. There are two performances in LA at Royce Hall, UCLA campus on January 28 and 29.

Those interested should download and prepare the following sides and song. Please send auditions to gregg@gleasnermusic.com by the end of the week.
