(in some semblance of chronological order followed by ongoing recruitment/undated calls & technical opportunities)
Looking for actors with daytime availability for a 2-week run of Happy as Clams: the Musical, an original children's musical to be presented by the Long Island Children's Museum mornings/afternoons 12/2-12/14. PAID POSITION. Rehearsals begin 11/9 and will primarily be evenings. Auditions Thurs, 10/30 at 7:30pm at the Long Island Children's Museum Theatre, 11 Davis Ave, Garden City. Contact Brian Smith, director, for more info at email@example.com. Also feel free to call 516-413-5462. Roles:
Clammy: (20s or 30s, female) A clam. Clammy’s journey of self worth carries us through the show. Above all, she should be a likeable character who wants to be human so badly that the audience roots for her. Although she says she is miserable, she has an overall happy demeanor. (Female) Her singing voice should be belty, perhaps with a touch of soul.
Grabby: (20s or 30s, male) A crab who is best friends with CLAMMY. Grabby should be able to sing even though he only has part of song (DIG DOWN). Above all, it is important that he should be a strong actor who can get kids laughing and participating in the show. He is a feisty fiddler crab who fancies himself as a cowboy. He learned all he knows about Country Westerns from a human who used to own him.
Stomach: (adult who can portray a young child, female) The STOMACH is the Sea Star’s stomach. She is attached to the Star via a tube/rope. She is the (dis)embodied voice of the Sea Star’s hunger pangs. Her one goal is to act like a loud, spoiled child until she gets what she wants: food. She needs a good voice, good volume for her part in “Everybody Wants to Be Me.” Most of all, she needs a big personality to convey her temper tantrums.
Fisherman: (20s and up) Fisherman and Grabby the Crabby’s former owner. He opens the show, inviting the audience to literally dive into the water; and later resolves the conflict revealing CLAMMY’s purpose. Vocally he needs to be able to sing softly in the lullaby-like “Shiny Fish.” And he needs to be a ham in Grabby the Crabby, leading the audience to shake off the crazy crab that is pinching him! Although he is a fisherman from Long Island, he has the personality of a cowboy. He loves fishing -- and respects the environment and the creatures in it.
BRIEF SYNOPSIS: This 45-minute children’s musical tells the story of Clammy and Grabby the Crabby and their journey through the sea to find what they want the most: happiness and… friendship. Along the way, they meet up with Fluke, Jelly, the Star of the Sea (and her stomach), and a Fisherman. It’s a buddy musical that allows the audience to interact with the show, on and offstage. The story weaves together 3 songs from our 2013 Parents’ Choice Award winning album, Happy as Clams, along with 4 new songs written for the original stage production, which took place at the Long Island Children’s Museum in Jan and July.

Playcrafters of Bellport
How would you like to be part of one of our productions? As theater is such a collaborative art, there are lots of critical tasks necessary to put on a successful show. You could be part of one of our productions.
Below is a list of the positions and a brief description of what they entail. If you are interested in becoming involved, even if you have no experience, give me a call. Let’s talk about it.
PRODUCER: If you are organized and are good at paying attention to details (and what mother or father isn't?), this is the title for you. The Producer coordinates all the other activities and keeps in touch with the director to make sure everything is proceeding smoothly.
COSTUMES: Do you have a sense of fashion and like to put clothes together? You would work with the Director to interpret each character’s role through what they are wearing. Being able to sew is a plus.
SET DESIGN & DECORATION: Do you like interior design and have a good sense of color? Are you an artist? By working with the Director, you would help decide what color the walls are, what kind of furniture is needed and generally create an environment.
SET CONSTRUCTION: Do you like to work with your hands and do "projects?" Do you like to work with wood or paint? We need you, whether you have tools or not.
LIGHTING: Do you want to learn something new? Lighting is the art of “painting” with light to create mood and texture for the play.
SOUND: You would be working with the Director to choose the music and sound effects needed to set the right mood for different parts of the play.
MAKE-UP: You would work with the actors to create the proper “look” they need for their characters.
PROPS: Are you the type of person who likes to go to yard sales or likes to search for odd pieces of “stuff?” You would help to find those perfect things that the actors use to make the play “real.”
STAGE MANAGER: Are you organized and like to work with people? The Stage Manager works closely with the Director and the actors to keep things flowing during rehearsals and the show.
If you are interested in any of these volunteer jobs, you don't have to have any experience. We will teach you by having you work with one of our experienced people. If you are not sure if this is for you, let’s talk. Call me. I can fill you in and answer questions. BOB KAPLAN, Member of the Board 631-929-3042 or firstname.lastname@example.org
