Seeking video submissions.

Writers and Producers searching for talent for a production of new musical, Shudder.

Please submit an MT cut or reel that shows off your vocal range. Please take the time to read this full casting notice and fill out the linked form. Upload your tape as an UNLISTED or PUBLIC video to YouTube; submit link in aforementioned form.

Shudder is a new horror-comedy musical based on a lesser-known Brothers Grimm fairytale, “The Boy Who Went Forth to Learn Fear”. It unfolds in a wild, thrilling, and chilling ride through a haunted castle, complete with priests, knights, peasants, and princesses singing in 5-part harmony. Shudder is a haunting musical comedy certain to make you laugh one moment and disturbed the next!

IGNATIUS – (he/him) Our “Villain” Protagonist. The Young Son who seems unaffected, and unable to experience fear. After being cast out by his father (which he doesn’t care about), he enters the castle contest to pursue his life goal of learning how to shudder. Probably has the signs of being a psychopath in the future. (Tenor 2)

ROLAND – (he/him) Contestant #1. A brave, burly knight who has slain many beasts and survived. Has extreme jock energy – not much brain power needed when you can win any fight. Looking to win the princess and the glory. (Low Baritone)

PHOENIX – (she/they) Contestant #2. A badass bounty hunter only interested in money and power. They will do whatever it takes. Because of festival rules she has disguised herself as a man to be allowed to participate. (Alto)

SILAS – (he/him) Contestant #3. A priest wanting to purge the castle of evil spirits to bring peace to the kingdom. Very knowledgeable and skilled, but finds he is in over his head. The “older and wiser” character. (Baritone)

DEBBIE – (she/her) Contestant #4? Not actually a contestant…she kinda just wandered into the castle with the group (probably following ROLAND), and now is stuck there. Always looking for a good time. Nowhere near the brightest bulb, though somehow she manages to survive. (Mezzo-Soprano)

LILITH – (she/her) The princess of the kingdom. She is…not your princess of fairytales. She actually conceived of the contest as a way to find a man worthy to live in the haunted castle with her. Has repressed gothy vibes (probably from her father). Think a young Morticia Addams looking for her Gomez. (Mezzo)

WÄTTSCHISFAÇ – (he/him) King who issues the challenge. Looking for a brave man to be the future king, and a good match for his odd daughter. (Baritenor)

TRENT – (he/him) Older brother to IGNATIUS. The golden child, loved by his father for being normal and competent. A jerk to his little brother. (Baritone)

BRAM – (he/him) Father to IGNATIUS and TRENT. Always disappointed in his younger son for being so weird and unfeeling. (Baritone)

THE SEXTON – (he/him) Father’s friend. Takes the young son under his wing in an attempt to teach him fear, which ends up with him horribly injured. (Bass)

ARABELLA – (she/her) an unsettling, beautiful and sassy cat. She is WAY too good at card games and swindling souls. Think a femme fatale take on Bonnie from Bonnie and Clyde. She has a silent and sly confidence about her, and a killer poker face. There are two things in this world that Arabella loves above all else: poker and her lover Benny. Signs: Sun – Scorpio, Moon – Pisces, Rising – Gemini (Mezzo)

BENNY – (he/him) a confident and charming cat. WAY too good at card games and swindling souls. Think Clyde from Bonnie and Clyde. Flies by the seat of his pants, loves to live in the moment, and is quite the adrenaline junky. He unapologetically lives for the highs in life, and has hardcore lucky cat syndrome. Arabella is the love of his life, and pretty much the only one in the world he wouldn’t hustle or swindle. (Tenor)

“COUSIN” – (any) A dead body that is assumed to be the cousin of IGNATIUS. Wakes up and tries to strangle him. (Tenor)

OLD BEARDED MAN – (he/him) The head spirit in the castle. Has an epic fight in the final night. (Spoken)

FREDERICK: – (he/him) Pianist for Lilith’s show.

ENSEMBLE to play various roles, including:

TOWNSFOLK: (any/all) The members of the town in which IGNATIUS and his fractured family live. They are generally aware of IGNATIUS and his antics, and find him to be quite a nuisance.

BLACK CATS AND DOGS: (any/all) Various creatures that appear on the first night in the castle. They are ultimately slaughtered/fought against by Ignatius and his woodcarving knife.

COFFIN CARRIERS: (any/all) Six silent, cloaked figures that deliver a coffin, then disappear.

SKELETONS: (any/all) The may seem intimidating at first, but turns out they love bowling!

COMPENSATION: The producers can not guarantee any compensation at this time, but are working to raise a budget that allows to compensate all artists involved.
