Portland Walking Tours is looking for fun and dynamic personalities to lead tours and other events. We are hiring over a dozen positions that are part-time and on-call. You must have leadership abilities, charisma, a sense of humor, great communication skills, and an obvious love of Portland. Since we run morning, afternoon, and evening events, you may work irregular hours with the the bulk done from April through November. We're an established company that's been around almost a decade and successful enough that during the regular tour season we run daily tours with over 40 events per week (not including dozens of private events). If you are interested in learning more about what we do, check out the Portland Walking Tours website or our sister companies Hometown Advantage and Run Brain Run.

Doing tours is a combination of thinking on your feet, advanced storytelling, and herding cats. We do all the training and get you up to speed on your missing knowledge of the city.

Casting Notice: COOL BLUES - New Federal Theatre

Woodie King, Jr.'s New Federal Theatre ( is accepting submissions for COOL BLUES (a Play in 4 Movements) by Bill Harris. Directed by Ed Smith. Equity showcase.

The show will run March 10 - April 3, 2011 at Henry Street Settlement's Abrons Arts Center/Recital Hall in lower Manhattan. Performance schedule: Wednesday-Friday @ 7:30pm, Saturday @ 3:00pm & 8:00pm, Sunday @ 3:00pm.

It is 1955. B is a black jazz musician so renowned and innovative that heonly needs a single initial to identifyhim. We join him as he shows up unannounced to spend a fateful weekend in the apartmentof Baroness Alexandra Isabella von Templeton (Xan), one of the world's richestwomen. His manner and his mood shifts are as mercurial as his music. His talentat deception and self defense as agile ashis ability to charm. Questions of loyalty, love, privilege, and friendship areprobed as the ghosts of B's past and present demand answers. Xan vows toprotect him at all costs, even if it means ignoring the advice of the doctorsummoned to attend to him. Does B want to be saved? Can he be? Has he come torecuperate from recent disastrous events in order to soar into the world again,or has the burden of being a cutting edge spirit in the war against conformity and racial prejudice taken itsultimate toll?


[B] Black male. 40-60 years old. Innovative jazz musician. Ravished by drugs. Awince of pain accompanied by a groan may be substituted for his cough.

[KIDWELPOOL] Black male, 30-35 years old. Jazz pianist. He has had electro shock treatments. We are never sure of Kid’s demeanor. Is it taciturn, cool, brooding, or some deeper psychosis? His silences are like monologues. After the 1st Movement he existsonly in B’s mind. Hisappearances/entrances & disappearances/ exits should reflect this.

[MOTHER] Black female. 60-70 years old. B’s Mother. Humbled,supportive and unpretentious, yet a bit smoothing. She is in B's memory and appears distinctly and less so at various times.

[CHIM] White female. Early 30s. Wife of B who he considers to be the hippest white woman that he has met. She is also in B's memory and appears the same as the Mother.

[XAN] White female. 40-55 years old. Born in wealth. Called Xan by B. Everybody else, out offear and respect, calls her "Baroness." (Baroness Alexandra Isabellavon Templeton.) British born fourthgeneration member of one of the richest banking families in the world. A Baroness by marriage. Her manner of dress is simple, expensive.

[DOCTOR] White male. 40-55 years old. The Baroness' private doctor. Affluent, yet apathetic and insensible at times. Resides in the same apartment building where Xan lives. Actor cast will also portray multiple roles, including PRODUCER / HOTEL MANAGER/ ANNOUNCER.
