Performers - (posted 10/20/21 by Palace Theater in the Dells)

Palace Theater in the Wisconsin Dells is accepting performer submissions for GUYS ON ICE THE MUSICAL
CAST BREAKDOWN – Marvin has been cast, but looking to cast Lloyd & Ernie roles.
LLOYD . . . . . . A married ice fisherman
MARVIN . . . . . A bachelor ice fisherman - CAST
ERNIE . . . . . . . A moocher
SETTING: Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin
TIME: The Present
MARVIN and LLOYD are working-class Guys from northern Wisconsin. They may
seem a little slow on the uptake, but there is a native intelligence and wry good humor
that suggests active thought life. There is a casual pace to life in Door County, especially
in the winter. No locals are in a hurry to get anywhere. Snow days and sick days are
common. Beer drinking can start very early in the day. Marvin and Lloyd should be close
in age, anywhere from 30 to 55. Nothing slick. No expensive haircuts. Many guys up
here are large. Large is interesting but not essential.
ERNIE is the kind of guy who always says the wrong thing, maybe on purpose, maybe
not. In other cultures, he would be a coyote or trickster. Up here he’s just a pain in the
ass. GUYS ON ICE needs to be played with an honest heart

Standardized Participant Actors - (posted 8/17/21 by Standardized Patient Program at The School of Nursing)

We are currently recruiting Standardized Participants (SPs) for the School of Nursing at Madison College.

As we continue to battle the inequities that exist in health care in all areas of the nursing program, diversity is an essential criterion of the SP ensemble.

Currently we are seeking an ensemble that is:
• Multi-lingual
• Multi-cultural and diverse in ethnicity and religious philosophies
• Diverse in gender (binary and nonbinary)
• Diverse in sexuality
• Diverse in age
• Diverse in physicality (size and ability)

OVERVIEW
The Standardized Patient Program of Madison College provides nursing students further opportunities to develop their interpersonal and empathetic communication skills and their critical thinking skills in a controlled and interactive setting.

Standardized Participants are trained individuals who can reliably portray patients, caregivers, guardians, or hospital staff that the nursing students will work with throughout their careers. The SP must be able to be consistent in their delivery. The repeatable nature of this work is of the upmost importance as it will help with standardizing the assessment process and aid in post clinical simulation discussion.

SPs are contractors and will be paid a stipend of 15.00 per hour of simulation and training.

Please send a resume, cover-letter, and headshot to ashiley@madisoncollege.edu with the subject line: "SP-actor recruitment."

PAT/THE BABYSITTER
20 to 25 years old, female. Studious, stylish, somewhere between a girl and woman. Unrelenting precociousness, youthful angst, innocent, slightly naive but intelligent. Pat is just trying to get through this babysitting job and get ready to ace her mid-term with some cash in hand. Soon she’ll learn life isn’t easy way when she finds herself stranded in the middle of nowhere on a farm with no connection to the city she’s trying to get back to.

LAWRENCE/LAURIE
7 to 11 years old, male or female. slightly athletic, not clumsy at all. Average, but can handle farm work/chores. Could be an old soul, but this kid is very much youthful, feisty, bossy like a typical kid that age, and unpredictable. Everything he or she knows about life and the world was passed on from late Grandfather, from tending to the remaining livestock to keeping dinner on the table. Despite being wise beyond his or her years, worldview does not exceed beyond the farm’s property line. An avid fan of western serialized radio shows, Lawrence/Laurie tends to hide his/her inner sadness by dressing up as the “sheriff of this here farm.”
