STAGEright Theater is holding auditions for their 23rd Production: "The Toxic Avenger".

Based on Lloyd Kaufman's cult film, The Toxic Avenger, and winner of the Outer Critics Circle Award for Best Off-Broadway Musical, The Toxic Avenger is a charming love story and laugh-out-loud musical that has it all — an unlikely hero, his beautiful girlfriend, a corrupt New Jersey mayor and two guys who play... well, everyone else ... bullies, mobsters, old ladies, and stiletto-wearing back-up singers. With book and lyrics by Joe DiPietro and music and lyrics by David Bryan, the show also features the most memorable and unbelievable duet you'll ever see on any stage.

Melvin Ferd the Third wants to clean up Tromaville, the most polluted town in New Jersey (just off Exit 13B on the Turnpike). Foiled by the mayor's bullies, Melvin is dumped into a vat of radioactive toxic waste, only to reemerge as The Toxic Avenger, New Jersey's first superhero. Affectionately known as Toxie, our new hero is a seven-foot mutant freak with superhuman strength and a heart as big as Newark. He's out to save New Jersey, end global warming, and woo the blind librarian in town.

Audition Requirements:

  • Hard copy of headshot/résumé
  • 1-minute contemporary comedic monologue.
  • 32 bars of contemporary song in the style of the show
  • Prepare 32 bars of a second contemporary song that may or may not be requested

An accompanist will be provided. Please bring your music in a binder or taped pages with the cuts clearly marked. Please do not bring paperback songbooks. Please dress comfortably and be prepared for some simple movement.
