Here’s an audition announcement from the Bay Street Players in Eustis:
AUDITIONS – Thoroughly Modern Millie
April 18 & 19, 2011 at 7:30 PM
Bay Street Players will hold auditions for the Tony Award-winning musical Thoroughly Modern Millie on April 18th & 19th at 7:30 PM at 109 N. Bay Street, Eustis.
Artistic Director David Clevinger and Musical Director Beau Mahurin are looking to fill a cast of 20-30 with men and women ages 17-50. Must be able to move well and some tap is required. The lead character, Millie, must be a strong tap dancer. Two Asian males are also needed to complete the cast. Newcomers are welcome. Appointments are not required.
Those auditioning are requested, but not required, to prepare a musical selection, preferably in the style of the production, and to bring sheet music in their key. An accompanist will be provided. In addition, some may be asked to read selections from the script.
Anyone not interested in performing onstage is invited to join our team of volunteers and to learn of backstage opportunities needed for this production. The dates of the production are July 8-31, 2011 with a total of 17 performances.
Taking place in New York City in 1922, Thoroughly Modern Millie tells the story of young Millie Dillmount, who has just moved to the city in search of a new life for herself. It’s a New York full of intrigue and jazz – a time when women were entering the workforce and the rules of love and social behavior were changing forever. Filled with frisky flappers, dashing leading men and a dragon-lady of a villainess audiences will love to hate, Thoroughly Modern Millie is a perfectly constructed evening of madcap merriment.
Thoroughly Modern Millie is generously sponsored in part by the Eveland Family Foundation, United Arts of Central Florida, and the City of Eustis. Please contact the theatre at 352-357-7777 or visit the web site at www.baystreetplayers.org for directions or for further information.
Bay Street Players is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit community theatre celebrating 36 seasons of live theatre in the historic 1922 State Theatre in downtown Eustis.
