Auditions

TWO exciting audition opportunities coming up!

1) AUDITIONS for
“I LOVE YOU, YOU’RE PERFECT, NOW CHANGE”

Book & lyrics by Joe DiPietro, Music by Jimmy Roberts
Directed by Jacqueline Engel
Greenspace Center, 815 Market St, Lewisburg
Sunday, July 29, 7:00-9:00 pm
Monday, July 30, 7:00-9:00 pm
Show to be performed Sept 21-30 at Greenspace Center!

This celebration of the “mating game” takes on the truths and myths behind love & relationships. Act I explores the journey from dating and waiting to love and marriage, while Act II reveals the agonies and triumphs of in-laws and newborns, trips in the family car and pick-up techniques of the geriatric set. This hilarious revue pays tribute to those who have loved and lost, to those who have fallen on their face at the portal of romance, and to those who have ever dared to ask, “Say, what are you doing Saturday night?”

The show is designed as a series of vignettes introducing new characters each time, so the casting is flexible with a minimum of two men and two women needed. Auditioners may attend either audition session, and they should bring a short section (approximately one verse) of a musical theatre song to sing (with sheet music, CD, or no accompaniment). Auditioners do not need to prepare a monologue but will be asked to do cold readings from the script, and should also bring calendars to indicate scheduling conflicts in August/September.

2) AUDITIONS for
“LEWISBURG VICTORIAN NUTCRACKER”
by P.I. Tchaikovsky
Directed by Trey & Amy Casimir
Strictly Ballet Studio
Greenspace Center, 815 Market St, Lewisburg (2nd Floor)
Saturday, August 25, 10:00am-2:00 pm

RiverStage and Strictly Ballet are proud to be joining forces to co-produce this inaugural Lewisburg Victorian Nutcracker, in the spirit of the former Lewisburg Victorian Christmas parade and in the tradition of “Community Nutcrackers” that have been performed in various towns and cities across the United States. “Community Nutcrackers tend to be a little looser, a little more varied in their staging, although the ballet portion is still performed with as much rigor and discipline as the dancers are capable of,” says director Amy Casimir. The show will be performed on December 15, 2018 (one performance only!).

Auditions for dancing and acting roles will be held on Saturday, August 25, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at the Strictly Ballet studio on the second floor of the Greenspace building (the old Lewisburg high school). Non-dancers, including boys, are also sought for various non-dancing roles. “We really hope that all interested local dancers and performers will participate, no matter their usual studio affiliation,” said Amy. “We’re not looking to steal dancers or step on anyone’s toes, we’re just hoping to create a new tradition that will provide some holiday joy to the community for years to come.  In years to come, we plan to eventually stage the entire ballet from start to finish, but for this inaugural production, we will almost certainly do no more than the first act, so rehearsal time should be pretty manageable.”
