'Miscast 2015' is coming to the Town Hall Arts Center

Last year an annual, silly tradition called Miscast returned as a benefit for the new Denver Actors Fund, and Littleton Town Hall Arts has announced it will host “Miscast 2015.”

“Miscast” is an opportunity for some of the local theatre community’s top performers to sing songs and act out scenes they would never … ever! … get cast to perform on a legitimate stage. This popular tradition returns for one night only on Monday, Sept. 14, again as a benefit for the Denver Actors Fund. The director will again be Robert Michael Sanders, with an assist from Ronni Gallup.

Performers are now invited to apply for the 12 available slots. An invited panel of local luminaries will choose the dozen most creative, intriguing or outrageous performance proposals. The deadline to apply is Aug. 14. The final line-up will be announced shortly thereafter. 

Think gender-bending, race-bending and age-bending. Last year featured a Girl Scout singing “My Unfortunate Erection,” and members of the handicapped theatre company PHAMALY doing a “Full Monty” strip-tease. For starters.

It may be all wrong … but it feels so right.

Your returning co-hosts are Mark Pergola and Damon Guerrasio. The director is Robert Michael Sanders.
