Director : Jim Redding / Musical Director : Nic Palmeri / Stg. Mgr. : Karen Brucia.  Looking to cast approx 12 versatile, wildly multi talented actors to bring this high energy imaginative telling of the life of rock and roll legend Buddy Holly to life.
Buddy Holly...Tall, lanky 20‘s, on stage for the entire show. Sings 20 songs. Funny, stubborn, driven , brash. Single minded in his drive to bring his songs to the world. In doing so, he changes the face of popular music for the next 50 years. ( not required, BUT if the actor could play quitar, even a little, that would be a bonus. The music is going to be performed on stage by the actors playing his band The Crickets)
(All the other actors will double and triple parts. As with Buddy it is not required, but if you play a rock or country music style instrument, guitar, bass, drums, banjo, fiddle, sax, piano, that is certainly a bonus.)
Hip Pockets Duncan...30s ,laid back Texas Dj. Hollys first supporter, acts as narrator of the story.
Maria Elena…20s, Holly's wife. Mexican American. Strong independent
Norman Petty…40's, Record producer used to being Top Dog. He meets his match when he meets Buddy.
Vi Petty…40s, Norman's wife and business partner, feisty, strong willed, not afraid to speak her mind ( a bonus if she can play piano)
Big Bopper...30s, Hello Baaaaaaayyyybeee! Larger than life in every way. Life of the Party.
Apollo MC…30s, African American, introduces the Crickets to Harlem. Great comic timing.
Four Girls…20's, They play a variety of young women in the story, jingle singers, teeny boppers, back up singers, beauty queens. (again it would be terrific if you can play instruments but totally not required).
Murray…40s- 50s.. Record producer not thrilled with Buddy and his sound.
The cast will play these parts and nearly 20 more. A wonderful challenge.
Have a song prepared; preferably a rock and roll, country, rock a billy song, appropriate to the era. Be available for ALL shows.

THINKBIG! THEATER ARTS SEEKS DIRECTOR FOR NYC FESTIVAL PREMIERE OF ORIGINAL TYA MUSICAL COMEDY - ThinkBIG! Theater Arts seeks a creative, experienced director to lead cast and crew on its world premiere of Sue Ology and the (Possibly) Haunted House, a Theater for Young Audiences musical that mixes comedy and chills as well as science and the (possibly) supernatural.
BASICS: This production is part of the NY Children’s Theater Festival and will take place May 1-3, over 4 matinee performances at The Player’s Theater (an Off-B'way venue). Subsequent booking already secured, with more bookings very likely. Reimbursements for NYC travel expenses, along with small stipend. Excellent opportunity to build resume and to possibly join the SDC.

Experience with puppetry and creative on-stage effects valued but not required. Director must be able to work alongside playwright and lyricist/composer in developing this world premiere.
ABOUT US: ThinkBIG! Theater Arts has already performed the original play “Mythos” as part of the 2014 NYCTF and has taken that production to the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Later this year, ThinkBIG! will be working in studio to perform before a live audience as well as in classrooms across the nation via live-streaming as part of the Virtual Arts TV Educational Festival. In short, the creative team behind ThinkBIG! intends to grow the company and the resumes of all who join the team. We have every intention of promoting “Sue Ology” and look forward to seeing where this new adventure will take us.
If you’re as excited about Theater for Young Audiences as we are, contact Producer Heather Van Velsor at heather@thinkbigtheaterarts.org. To learn more about us, visit www.thinkbigtheaterarts.org. No phone calls. You will be contacted to set up an interview.
