Hedwig and the Angry Inch Yitzhak Auditions

January 18, 2014 @ 6:00 pm
Aggie Central Station, 1115 Moro Street, Manhattan, KS, 66502, United States

The local production team for Hedwig and the Angry Inch at Aggie Central Station is looking for a Yitzhak for their upcoming April production of Hedwig!

Hedwig and the Angry Inch is a rock musical about a fictional rock and roll band fronted by an East German transgender singer. The text is by John Cameron Mitchell, and the music and lyrics are by Stephen Trask. The musical premiered in 1998 and has been performed throughout the world in hundreds of stage productions.

The story draws on Mitchell’s life as the son of a U.S. Army Major General who once commanded the U.S. sector of occupied West Berlin. The character of Hedwig was originally inspired by a German divorced U.S. Army wife who was a Mitchell family babysitter and moonlighted as a prostitute at her Junction City, Kansas trailer park home. The music is steeped in the androgynous 1970s glam rock era of David Bowie (who co-produced the Los Angeles production of the show), as well as the work of John Lennon and early punk godfathers Lou Reed and Iggy Pop.

Performance dates are April 10-12th and 17-19th with four weeks of rehearsals preceding on Sunday-Tuesday afternoon/early evenings.

Yitzhak: (Lead) Hedwig’s Croatian male husband and roadie/back-up singer; Hedwig’s vocal sparring partner- theirs is an emotional and at times abusive relationship; actress/actor playing Yitzhak should be believable as a butch male but one that chafes at the bonds of traditional masculinity and longs to explore his feminine, creative side; very strong singer with rock and roll vibe; wide vocal range a must (High belt to a G); must have a convincing Eastern European accent.

We are auditioning both males and females for this part.

A 1min prepared monologue is suggested, but not required. Come ready to sing as a group and with our Hedwig. :)

For score and libretto access or any other relevant questions, please email jimbo@aggiecentralstation.com.

We will be having an additional audition/callback period on Saturday, on Saturday, January 18th from 6-8pm.
