Super Storm Auditions
March 9-11, 2018
Chicago and Madison

In 2018-19, OFTY will perform Super Storm at 200 shows in elementary schools throughout the upper Midwest. (Music and stage direction by score & libretto collaborators Scott Gendel & Diane Garton Edie)

Set in a cave in a park on a VERY stormy day, this 45-minute opera will be triple cast.S, M, T, B – affected by the storm - turn into super heroes based on their vocal gifts. Cast includes three coach/accompanists.

Cast members drive the tour van, load and unload set pieces, and field audience questions. Additionally, they train student performers (“cats and dogs”). There are typically two shows per day/7-10 shows per week. Compensation is $55 - $60 per show plus $29 per diem and travel/lodging while on tour. In addition, each artist receives lodging and $375 for the rehearsal period which runs for a week in mid-October 2018. The tour runs October 2018 to mid-May 2019 with a two month holiday break. Due to each role being triple cast, artists generally are on tour 5-8 weeks.
