Pays:$250/ProjectCategory:Singing
Description:

The company is holding auditions for "SINGIN’ IN THE RAIN" and looking for actors, please see the details below ONLY LOCAL TALENT WILL BE CONSIDERED. About the project: Singin’ in the Rain has all the makings of a Tinseltown tabloid headline – the starlet, the leading man and a love affair that could change lives and make or break careers. In silent movies, Don Lockwood and Lina Lamont are a hot item but, behind the scenes, things aren’t always as they appear on the big screen. Meanwhile, Lina’s squeaky voice might be the end of her career in “talking pictures” without the help of a talented young actress to do the talking and singing for her. Rate: All cast are volunteers with a performance per diem equal to $250 max. Additional info: Audition Information Please prepare 32 bars of a song in the style of the show with sheet music in the correct key. No recordings as an accompanist will be provided. Bring a headshot, resume, conflict calendar, clothes and shoes comfortable to dance in. Optional: Tap Shoes. All will be expected to attend the dance call. Key Dates: First Rehearsal: (tentative) March 19, 2023 Load-in: April 23, 2023 Opening Night: May 13, 2023 Closing Performance & Strike: June 3, 2023 Rehearsals are held Mon-Thurs 7:30-10:30 pm, and Sundays from 2-10 pm. Starting April 24, rehearsal schedules change to M/T/Th/F 7-10:30 pm, and weekends TBD for tech. Please apply if interested
