Make yourselves known, men.

I know you’re out there: Male dancer/performers with technical chops, the ability to generate and develop material, and a hankering to be involved in one of the strongest, most inventive companies in town. Well quit it with the shyness and go introduce yourself already: Lucky Plush Productions needs men for their Tenth Anniversary project, Punk Yankees, which premieres at the Dance Center over two weekends this fall (October 22-24 and 29-31).

Extra-sweet is the fact that AD Julia Rhoads is willing to come right out and say it: Cattle calls are out—I’ve said my entire life that it’s an inherently flawed process that benefits no one, and I’m glad more and more directors are open to other methods of finding talent to fit their aims. Your chance instead will come in the form of a workshop with the company over two days—not only will you have an opportunity to be seen from multiple angles (literally and figuratively), you’ll also come out with a feel for Rhoads’ process and the experience of being in the company. All you need to do is toss a note over to julia (at) luckyplush (dot) com and take it from there.

Workshop auditions will be held in the North studio of the Drucker Center Saturday, May 9 and Sunday, May 10 from 11:30-3:30. Good luck!
