I'm Choreographing a Musical, You Should Be In It!

Casting Call for Unnamed Broadway Musical: The Musical!

Did you fantasize about being in an orphan themed musical when you were a kid?
Volunteer Performers Wanted for Collaborative Musical Theater/Video Project. No experience necessary!

We are seeking volunteer performers for Unnamed Broadway Musical: The Musical! to participate in an unusual collaborative performance based on the experience of watching and/or listening to orphan themed musicals as a child.

The casting will be based more on the willingness and desire of the performers than on singing, dancing ability, or appearance. We hope to tap into a population who perhaps fantasized as children about being in a particular musical, but for whom it wasn’t a possibility perhaps because of gender, race, talent, or other circumstantial barriers.

We will create a new musical together under the direction of Sarah Cameron Sunde over the course of 5 weeks. Chris Berg will compose and direct the music and Pia Monique Murray will choreograph. The entire process will be recorded and edited into an experimental video by artist/organizer Kara Hearn.

Interested candidates should:

  • Be available for all rehearsal and performance times
  • Be 18 years or older
  • Have a personal history/relationship with an orphan themed musical

To Apply:

  • Please send an email to  with a brief description of your interest in the project
  • Deadline: April 7th  at midnight
  • We will select applicants for Interviews/Auditions to be held on Saturday, April 14th
