Here’s an audition notice from Breakthrough Theatre:
Auditions: Closer Than Ever
Time: Sunday, March 13 · 6-8 pm
Location: Breakthrough Theatre of Winter Park
419A W. Fairbanks Avenue
Winter Park, FL
The Breakthrough Theatre will hold auditions for the Maltby and Shire musical Closer Than Ever on Sunday, March 13, 2011, from 6-8 p.m.
The musical will be directed by Jamaal Solomon.
Three of the roles are already cast, and will be played by Heath Boyer, Victoria Burns, and Wade Hair.
We are only looking for a PRINCIPAL SOPRANO and UNDERSTUDIES for all four roles.
Performers should be 30 and up.
Please prepare 16 bars of a song in the style of the show. Songs from the show are acceptable. A piano accompanist will be provided.
In this brilliant companion to their hit revue Starting Here, Starting Now, Richard Maltby, Jr. and David Shire follow up their earlier “songs of innocence” with twenty-four funny, wise and witty “songs of experience.”
As with their earlier revue, each song in Closer Than Ever is a story: an intimate, insightful tale about love, security, happiness-and holding onto them in a world that pulls you in a hundred directions at once. Maltby and Shire bring their celebrated craft and contemporary sensibility to songs about aging, mid-life crisis, second marriages, and role reversals with parents, as well as wicked satirical jabs at working couples and unrequited love. Included are several songs that were cut from the acclaimed Baby.
Show dates are April 29-May 16.
