The Thompson Brothers Concert

Category: Non-Equity Audition
Pay: $300 Stipend

HJ ENTERPRISES is looking for 5 black male singers who can act and or are comfortable getting into character. For this specific project we prefer singers who have a church background or feels comfortable with doing gospel vocals. Also each character has a very distinctive look so the actor will have to feel comfortable with heavy makeup and costume.

The project is a musical/ concert/ comedy show. It is revolving around a fictional gospel quartet group called the Thompson Brothers. They are a group of six brothers who are trying to be the next big group in the gospel industry, so they have a concert to present all of their songs to the public. This will be a concert with 10 songs that will sound good, be very churchy and also make the crowd laugh. We will perform live in front of an audience of 30 people (unless guidelines change and we can invite more or less) and it will be available virtually.

Actors Ages: 18 - 60

Character Breakdown:
Dennis Thompson- "The Cool Soprano" 60 years old and the second oldest brother. Doesn't talk much, he's the peace maker of the family and sings very high.

Harry Thompson- "The Suave Alto" 53 years old and the third oldest brother. Loves attention, loves fashion and doesn't mind showing his chest or wearing fitted pants. He used to be a background singer for prince and loves women. This actor can be a lighter skinned man or mixed race.
