Avengers Assemble!

Great job, everyone!  I could have cast this a dozen different ways, and it still would have been a great cast.  No matter the part, each one will have a fantastic performer in it.

 

This is in no real order.  Apologies for any misspellings!  If you have any questions, please contact me at charltonx@me.com

 

Emily Biggs — D’Artagnon’s Mother, Elise

Mary McGarr — Mother Superior

Genevieve Hendrix — Milady

Hayden Kesterson — Buckingham, Ravanche

Sara Sims Wilbanks — Sabine

Katherine Valliant — Adele, Sister at School

Lucy Keh — Abess

Katie Samples — Queen Anne

Maddie Freeman — Constance

Rick Cark — Richelieu

Terrance McBride — King Louis XIII

JB Crawford — Aramis

Chase Clayton — Porthos

Nathan Wolfenbarger — Athos

Chase Brown — D’Artagnon

Graham Rogers — Rochefort

Jackson Mullins — Basille, Fache

Will Lauver — Treville, Ruffian

Corey Spurling — D’Artagnon’s Father, DeBris

Jackson Mullins — Basille, Fache

Braxton McDonald — Stanley, Innkeeper

As for now, have a great holiday.  Rest.  Be safe.  If you want to watch a Musketeers film to get a feel for it all, the best is the Richard Lester THREE MUSKETEERS and FOUR MUSKETEERS, both of which make one, big movie.

Delay/Apologies

Due to an incredibly unforeseen circumstances, I may have to delay the posting of the cast list until tomorrow. Apologies.

Sincerely,
Patrick McCray

Cast list to be posted later

Check back here. I have to go through conflicts one last time. Thank you for your patience!

Sincerely,
Patrick McCray

If I have made a mistake, please correct me.

So far, I have audition forms from the following people:

Lucy Keh
Katherine Valliant
Maddie Freeman
Emily Biggs
Sara Sims Wilbanks
Mary McGarr
Terrance McBride
Corey Spurling
Braxton McDonald
JB Crawford
Chase Brown
Rick Carl
Will Lauver
Chase Clayton
Hayden Kesterson
Nathan Wolfenbarger
and Jackson Mullins

I am missing a few. There may have been a miscount on my part or my search on email might be lacking. Either that, or they have not been sent in.

If your name is not on that list, please send (or resend) your form by 9pm tonight. If there is a problem with that deadline, at the very least contact me.

Additionally, I was sent thoughts on characters (again, unless I miscounted) from:

Corey
Nathan
Chase B
Maddie
Emily

If your name is not on that list, and yet you sent them, please contact me.

I know this is exam week, so the latter are not mandatory. However, I appreciated the ones I got a great deal. You have exams, too, and it meant a lot to me that you found the time to reflect on the show, the characters, and their possibilities. Again, I appreciate it, and I will still be happy to accept them up through 9 PM tonight. If that time is not workable due to exams or outside commitments, please contact me. Thank you.

NYC Trip

If you are going to NYC in February and have paid, you will still go on that trip. That will not impact casting.

Fight Warnings — PLEASE READ

You did a great job today!  Just got out of a meeting with the main fight director.

This is about your safety and your happiness, so please read it carefully.

This may have an impact on whether or not you want to proceed.  If you read the below and realize that it does not mesh with your needs or the needs of your family, please let me know.  You have nothing invested yet.  There is no dishonor in looking at what’s below and deciding that it is not for you.  Your #1 job in life is not to be in a show.  It is to be safe, happy, and healthy.

Our fight directors (it is a play with so much combat that it requires two, with certification) have analyzed the script and determined that we will need to add Friday rehearsals.  Please prepare for that if you continue auditioning.  The first two weeks of rehearsal will be just fight class before fight choreography even begins.  This will be a very safe show if everyone respects the training that they need to have.  Even if you have had fight training, it was not under these directors and many of them speak their own “language.”

If you think you will miss even a day of this to anything other than serious, seasonal illness, please do not try out.  

I say that now, so there will be no sense of bait-and-switch.  One of the scenes involves around 13 combatants.

Also, actors will be expected to be close to off-book by the end of the second week of rehearsal.  I will schedule an off-book read through for that time.  Getting off-book is tough, but it can be done independently.  We are taking on a whale, and that is one place where you can be a real leader.

The good news is that the fighting could end up being show-stopping-legendary for Webb.  The people involved, if the directors prepare them properly, might pull off something of rock star status.  It will be worth the time.  Every practice matters.  I have yet to go through the conflicts people may have written down, but if you have ones on there and still wish to try out, come see me.  

Thanks!
