If I only had my vocal range still...

We are currently looking for male singers for our productions Varekai and Quidam.

The shows:

Varekai
Parachuted into the shadows of a magical forest, a kaleidoscopic world populated by fantastical creatures, a young man sets off on an adventure both absurd and extraordinary. On this day, at the edge of time, in this place of all possibilities, begins an inspired incantation to a life rediscovered.

Quidam
Quidam highlights our frailties and our anguish in the face of the new millennium that lies before us. It also underlines differences, conveying positive feelings and resentment and confronting our dreams with our nightmares. Quidam is a more scripted show; it integrates performance and theatricality to a greater degree than previous productions, and draws on the emotional relationships between the performers in the troupe.

Requirements:

* Role: Principal singer (in duo with a female singer);
* Sex: male;
* Age: N/A;
* Register: from A1 (2 octaves below middle C) to A sharp (above middle C) in full voice; and to D4 (2 octaves above middle C) in head voice;
* Well-trained voice—must be able to handle a rhythm of at least 10 shows per week;
* Ability to sing with beat music and comfortable with ethnic appoggiaturas;
* Improvisational skills;
* Solid and diversified stage experience;
* Willing and able to work with an amplification system (in-ear);
* Ability to work in a team and to sing in a changing context and environment.

Conditions:

* Location: North American, Asia-Pacific and International Tour;
* Contract length is a minimum of two years, with good conditions and benefits.

More Moron Life news...

Thank you to EVERYONE who submitted audition recordings for the re-edit of the On Star commercial. All the submissions were fantastic. In the end, though, it was starflow's melodic voice that won the day.

You can hear her in the Newly Re-edited Version of the Commercial.

Now, those of you who didn't get picked, never fear! There will be more commercials coming up that I may need to tag folks for. We're looking at moving into more "funny spoof" filler segments for between sketches, so I'm going to be working on a bunch of other projects, just like the one I need pictures of your phones for.

Last post for today, I *SWEAR*

I'm taking myself to see Corteo for my birthday next year. They'll be in San Jose *ON* my birthday. So that makes sense!

I'm doing the full bore VIP tickets thing. Yes, the whole package. The tickets are NOT cheap.

Anyone else want in?

Pre-purchase of tickets ends tonight at midnight, so I have to know like... now.

Me and my bigboy pants

So I have generally cast myself as "the screw up" at the restaurant. As the new guy, that's my job. To be the least experienced, and make mistakes so people can help me.

Two recent events, though, have shown me that I'm not the screwup that I claim to be... apparently I just play one on TV.

Monday night there was a small party. 8 people. They were a catering party, which means special menu, courses and such. Apparently the lady who set the thing up demanded PHENOMENAL customer service.

I was the one assigned to the party. Not the assistant manager. Not the 14 year veteran.

Tonight, we had two big parties. A catering party of 35, and a reservation for 30. I was assigned the table of 30. Because it was a reservation, not a contract, that meant everything was from the regular menu, so "anything goes". Catering contracts are actually easier from the ordering perspective, because the menu is limited to certain items, or eliminated all together for a specific meal. So 25 of the 30 showed up, and I was their buddy for the night. $1700 when it was all said and done. Adobe likes to spend the monies. I made ONE mistake during the evening. Forgot to bring someone his soup. Of course, that was the guy paying the bill. :D

So all in all, I think that my MANAGER trusts me, despite my public facade as screw-up.

Would you like fries with that?


And hey, if you havn't done so yet (and only 5 of you have!!!) take my freakin poll!!!
