As a part of our 2024 – 2025 season, NCTC is proud to announce non-AEA auditions for: 

Ride the Cyclone

Book, Music, and Lyrics by Jacob Richmond & Brooke Maxwell

Directed by Stephanie Temple

Musical Direction by Ben Prince

In this hilarious and outlandish story, the lives of six teenagers from a Canadian chamber choir are cut short in a freak accident aboard a roller coaster. When they awake in limbo, a mechanical fortune teller invites each to tell a story to win a prize like no other — the chance to return to life. This popular musical is a funny, moving look at what makes a life well-lived!

Casting the role of

The Amazing KARNAK, gender diverse role age 30 – older (drag artists and any and all gender identities)

An ever-present mechanical fortune-telling machine with a steady, measured, calm inflection that exudes gravitas but it is never pushed to comedic extremes. This is a non-singing role with demanding memorization.
