Fountain Hills Theater announces auditions for the musical 4 on the Floor.

Four auto mechanics in 1969 want to become a rock and roll band, but all they know is cars, chrome and chicks!  They say sing what you know!  While the boys spend their days repairing and singing about cars and dreaming about their calendar girls, this high energy tribute musical features some of the best rock and roll car songs of all time including 409, Hey, Little Cobra, Hot Rod Lincoln, Little Old Lady from Pasadena and many, many more.  

4 on the Floor is directed by Peter J. Hill, choreographed by Noel Irick and musically directed by Jennifer Adams.   

4 on the Floor will play Nov 8 – 22, 2020.

This will be the first indoor production at the Fountain Hills Theater since the pandemic closed its doors in March.  The theater will practice social distancing seating.  If indoor seating is still difficult or prohibited, the show will move to the outdoor stage and will be presented as part of our drive-in live theater programming.

Please send a video audition to theaterguy1@cox.net.  Please present a song in the style of the show that best features your voice and range. Include your resume. If you play a rock and roll instrument, please include that as well.  Video auditions must be presented by Sunday, Sept. 20.  Socially responsible rehearsals will begin Sept. 26.

Casting for:  
ED:  (Age 50+)  Ed is the gruff, weathered owner of the garage where the boys work.  He is Jack’s father and also acts as a stern surrogate father to the other boys.  Funny in a crotchety way.

JACK  (Age 18-30)  Jack is the all-American boy.  The de facto leader of the band.  He is a friendly peacemaker who keeps the boys in line.

SAL:  (Age 18-30)  Sal is the Italian would be gangster.  He can be a trouble-maker, but he’s loyal and fun-loving.

FREDDIE  (16-25)  Freddie is the youngest and most naïve of the boys.  Loyal like a puppy, Freddie is often over enthusiastic.

CLIFTON:  (18-30)  African-American.  Clifton is the quiet, strong presence with a subtle sense of humor.  His quiet, no nonsense demeanor comes from living as a black man in 1969.

THE CALENDAR GIRLS:  (18-30)  The boys dreams girls who appear often - sometimes as the pages of the mechanic’s calendars come to life, sometimes as back up singers and sometimes as mechanics and strong women themselves.
