4th Wall Theatre, a non-union NJ theatre company, will hold open auditions for all roles in the special holiday kickoff production of its 2018-19 season, SONDHEIM ON SONDHEIM, to be presented at the Burgdorff Center for the Performing Arts in Maplewood.

Rehearsals will begin in late September, and three performances are scheduled for November 30-December 2.

SONDHEIM ON SONDHEIM is an intimate portrait of the famed songwriter in his own words and music. Through the use of exclusive interview footage, audiences get an inside look at the personal life and artistic process of famed composer, Stephen Sondheim—his story, his inspiration and his genius.

4th Wall is seeking an ethnically diverse adult cast of at least 8 adults, ages 18-88.

  • All singers must be able to act and sing Sondheim’s complex material as well as handle tricky tight harmonies.
  • Prepare two contrasting 32-bar selections from songs by Stephen Sondheim.
  • Bring sheet music in your key.
  • An accompanist will be provided.
  • Also, bring a headshot and resume stapled together, and be prepared to provide all potential conflicts for weekday evening and weekend daytime rehearsals beginning October 15th.
  • Non-union; no pay.

NOTE: As an organization, 4th Wall is committed to diverse and inclusive casting; casting decisions, as much as possible based on the show, are made regardless of disability, race, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, size or shape.
