You are cordially invited to open auditions for RiverStage’s upcoming production of “Side by Side by Sondheim,” This is a Tony-Award winning musical revue that features some of Sondheim’s best-known early songs, woven together with colorful narration.
Stephen Sondheim has been the leading composer of musical theatre for the past fifty years. His work is timeless. From the streets of ancient Rome, through nineteenth-century Japan and turn-of-the-century Sweden, to the high-rise apartments of 1970 Manhattan, his songs represent a definitive time and place, and yet move beyond their particular settings to speak to us all. Now, with this award-winning revue of his earlier work, some of the most lush, unforgettable songs from this musical theatre master are presented in one magical evening. Featuring music from Company, Follies, A Little Night Music, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, Anyone Can Whistle and Pacific Overtures, not to mention the classics written with musical theatre giants, Leonard Bernstein, Jule Styne and Richard Rodgers, this dazzling array of some of Sondheim’s best-known songs demonstrates his masterful craft and astounding creativity.

We are seeking singers of all genders to perform the 30+ songs in the show and portray the Narrator. (While the original production used only 4 cast members, we are expecting to expand that number greatly.) Persons of color, persons with disabilities, and performers of all ages and experience levels are encouraged to audition.
Auditions will be held for two nights, September 20 & 21, from 7:00-9:00pm at Greenspace Center auditorium at 815 Market Street, Lewisburg. Auditioners do not need to attend both sessions, but should prepare a short section of a musical theatre song (e.g., one verse and chorus) to sing, either a-cappella or with an accompaniment track. You may or may not also be asked to read selections from the script. Auditioners should also be sure to bring a calendar to indicate scheduling availability through November 6.
