DEAR EVAN HANSEN Will Hold Open Casting Call in Chicago
Dear Evan Hansen will hold an open casting call in Chicago! It will be held Thursday, March 7 at AEA Audition Center, 557 West Randolph Street, Chicago, IL 60661.
Sign in is from 9:00am - 12:00pm, and the call will be held from 10:00am - 5:00pm.
The call is seeking actors age 17 and up for the following roles:
Evan Hansen: Vocal: Pop Tenor G2-B4 (Bottom G to top B) 17 years old. Smart, sincere and excruciatingly self-conscious, Evan prefers to hover in the background, a supporting player in his own life, too afraid to step forward into the spotlight and risk ridicule or, what might be worse, no one noticing him at all.
Connor Murphy: Vocal: Pop Bari/Tenor G2-G4 (Bottom G to Top G) 17 years old. An angry, disaffected loner, Connor has been a troubled kid for as long as anyone can remember, an enigma and a source of endless consternation to his long-suffering parents.
Zoe Murphy: Vocal: Pop Soprano F3-E5 (Bottom F to E two above middle C) 16 years old. Sensitive and sophisticated, with a sharp sense of humor, Zoe could care less about the status games and popularity rites of high school. She feels a terrible ambivalence over her brother's death.
Jared Kleinman: Vocal: Pop Tenor A2-B4 (Bottom A to top B) 17 years old. Droll and sarcastic, Jared covers his own insecurities with a well-practiced swagger and a know-it-all arrogance.
Alana Beck: Vocal: Pop Soprano F3-E5 (Bottom F to E two above middle C) 17 years old. Earnest to a fault, prone to melodrama, Alana hides a deeper loneliness beneath an ever-present smile and an almost aggressive friendliness.
If you are interested in attending, prepare 6 bars of a pop/rock or contemporary musical theatre song, and bring a picture and résumé. Accompanist will be provided.
