Auditions for Flint Community Players: Gypsy July 16 & 17
Auditions will be held Monday, July 16 and Tuesday, July 17 at 7:00pm at the theatre, The Tom and Bea Nobles Performance Hall, 2462 S. Ballenger Hwy, Flint, MI 48507 (behind the old K-Mart on Miller Road).
Director Nora-Lee Luttrell is looking for actors who can sing and dance. Gypsy has a very large cast of all ages. They especially need boys and girls, ages 8 to 18.
Regarded by many theater professionals as the greatest musical ever created, GYPSY is the ultimate tale of an ambitious stage mother fighting for her daughters’ success… while secretly yearning for her own. Set all across America in the 1920’s, when vaudeville was dying and burlesque was born, Arthur Laurents’ landmark show explores the world of two-bit show business with brass, humor, heart, and sophistication.
The celebrated score by Jule Styne and Stephen Sondheim boasts one glorious hit after another, including: “Let Me Entertain You,” “Some People,” “You’ll Never Get Away from Me,” “If Momma Was Married,” “All I Need Is the Girl,” “Everything’s Coming Up Roses,” “You Gotta Get A Gimmick,” “Small World,” and “Together Wherever We Go”.
Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script, a short dance routine, and a portion of a song, which will be taught at auditions. Be prepared to move and sing.
First Rehearsal and Company Meeting will be July 23, 2018 at 7:00pm
Production Dates are September 13 – 23, 2018
