From our friends at Theater Works and Durant Communications:
Audition notice for a few additional roles in Theater Works' upcoming production of Follies:
Compensation: Stipend Pay
Rehearsals Begin: 01/06/2015 Run Dates: 02/20/2015 – 03/15/2015
Synopsis On the surface, FOLLIES is about a reunion of retired performers, meeting up one last time in their old crumbling theater, the night before it is to be torn down. But on closer examination, Follies is a surreal, heart-wrenching examination of a life in the theater and “the road you didn’t take.” Our goal is to make this production a celebration of some of the great actors and actresses who have been lighting up valley stages for decades.
SANDRA Age 45-60 A former showgirl who has come back to the theater she used to perform in for the first time in 30 years. While this is a not a lead role, she is featured in several songs like Who’s That Woman and Beautiful Girls. The actress we cast will also understudy several of the larger roles.
TWO MALE ENSEMBLE SINGER/DANCERS Age 20-35 We are looking for two strong singer/dancers. One of the men we cast will also play the role of Kevin, the waiter Phyllis has a brief fling with in Act 2.
What To Prepare
Please prepare two contrasting songs (one up tempo and one ballad) from the classic Broadway repertoire. Please limit each selection to 32 bars.
