Audition for "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying"

Kingston, PA, United States
ID: 265617Exp: 7/17/2024

The company is holding auditions for "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying" Show and looking for performers, please see the details below. About the project: Big business means big laughs in this delightfully clever lampoon of life on the corporate ladder. A tune-filled comic gem that took Broadway by storm, winning both the Tony Award for Best Musical and a Pulitzer Prize, How to Succeed in Business without Really Trying boasts an exhilarating score by Frank Loesser, including "I Believe in You," "Brotherhood of Man" and "The Company Way." A satire of big business and all it holds sacred, How to Succeed in Business without Really Trying follows the rise of J. Pierrepont Finch, who uses a little handbook called How to Succeed in Business without Really Trying to climb the corporate ladder from lowly window washer to high-powered executive, tackling such familiar but potent dangers as the aggressively compliant "company man," the office party, backstabbing coworkers, caffeine addiction and, of course, true love. Additional info: Performances are September 13-15, 20-22, and 27-29. Callbacks (if necessary) will be TBD. Each night will begin with a dance call (please wear appropriate footwear), continue with cold readings from the script, and then end with vocal selections. Anyone interested in auditioning should prepare a karaoke music selection ~32 measures long or a 1.5 minute cut. The song choice should be in a similar style to the show. Songs from the show ARE acceptable. There will be no acapella allowed or accompanist provided, so please have the track avaible on your phone. Please have all rehearsal conflicts ready to list on your audition form. Performance conflicts will not be accepted under any circumstances.
