The PeaceMaker Project centers on the professional production of a “new” work for musical theater: PeaceMaker: The Dreams of Humanity’s Child. This musical, this opera, this performance piece, is designed to be entertaining and engaging while delivering a very powerful message: that we need to care for the EarthMother and all our relations, that each of us can be a peace maker. Therefore, the goal of the Peacemaker Project is to deliver that message to as wide and diverse and audience as possible.\ To accomplish this goal, we will recruit professional collaborators of like mind, body and spirit: musicians, actors, singers, dancers, directors, managers, designers, technicians. We will provide resources for collaborators to facilitate their success: musical scores, demo orchestrations, production notes, individual and group coaching, technical support. We will establish a “doable” schedule for busy professionals, a schedule that requires a minimum of people being in the same place, at the same time, doing the same thing. We will do this by rightly expecting that professionals, given proper resources and support, will come to a rehearsal situation fully prepared.
Thus, we believe that such a group can and will be able to bring the individual pieces together in a very short time…in fact, in four days for phase one of our project.
We will articulate a business plan appropriate to a “non-profit” model and, at the same time, designed to generate sufficient revenues to provide appropriate and “fair-market value” compensation for professional participants. In other words, we think pros should be paid for their work and we intend to our best to see that this happens. Simply put…we hope to generate enough revenues from the sale of tickets and other fund-raising activities to cover production expenses and still leave enough resources to compensate professional participants in a “fair-market value” way as well as support the larger goals of the Peaceful Educator Foundation. How exactly this will be determined has not been determined, yet…however, the spirit of our intention is fairness and the details will be clearly articulated and understood among and between participants before commitments are required.

The Exit 7 Players of Ludlow, MA are announcing auditions for A CHORUS LINE on Sunday, January 4 and Monday, January 5, 2015.
Show Dates: April 24, 25, May 1, 2, 8, & 9 @ 8pm and April 26 and May 3 @ 2pm
Directed by Janine Flood
Musically Directed by Daniel Monte
Choreographed by Amy Bouchard
Produced by Christina Climo and Chris McKenzie Willenbrock
A Chorus Line is a musical with music by Marvin Hamlisch, lyrics by Edward Kleban and a book by James Kirkwood, Jr. and Nicholas Dante. A CHORUS LINE is a stunning musical-verite about a chorus audition for a Broadway musical. It tells of the achingly poignant ambitions of professional Broadway gypsies to land a job in the show, and is a powerful metaphor for all human aspiration.
Memorable musical numbers include I Can Do That, At the Ballet, Dance: Ten; Looks: Three, The Music and the Mirror, What I Did for Love, One (Singular Sensation) and I Hope I Get It. It is a brilliantly complex fusion of dance, song and compellingly authentic drama.
While obviously being a show for dancers, we would like to encourage actor/singers who feel they have the ability to learn and perform choreography and convincingly portray a Broadway dancer. What is important to us is that you are comfortable up on stage and that you can perform with the talent, confidence, energy, and stamina required for the show.
Sunday January 4: 6pm
Monday January 5: 7pm
Please arrive with a headshot or recent photo and please be dressed to dance, preferably not in baggy clothing. This show features jazz, ballet, and tap dancing, so please bring any of the necessary dance shoes you may already have, otherwise, please wear shoes comfortable to dance in.

Immediately following your song, you will be asked to read a monologue from the show (See links below) Men will read the role of Adam and women will read the role of Eve. You do NOT need to memorize this in advance, in fact we discourage you from doing so. All we ask is that you take time in advance to familiarize yourself with what you are reading and make a strong character choice. These monologues were specifically chosen because they can be played any way you want.
