March 19, 2009
Rocky Mountain Repertory Theatre announces guest artist auditions for its 2009 season Sunday.
Each season there are a number of roles that can be filled with experienced residents ” both youths and adults. The company announces the opportunity for guest artists (based on auditions) in all three of its summer shows for its 41st season (youth positions open for “Brigadoon”). Plays are “Brigadoon,” “Pirates of Penzance” and “All Shook Up.”
“Brigadoon” is a classic American musical by Lerner and Loewe. The story tells of two American male tourists lost in the Scottish Highlands who come upon a mysterious village. One of them falls for a local but discovers the town re-awakens just one day every 100 years.
RMRT’s “Pirates of Penzance” is based on the 1980s Broadway revival of the opera. Music is by Arthur Sullivan with lyrics by W.S. Gilbert. It is an adaptation featuring sentimental pirates, bumbling policemen, young lovers, and an eccentric major-general.
RMRT will be the first regional theater company in Colorado to present “All Shook Up.” The new Broadway production is told through more than 24 of Elvis Presley’s most popular songs. Audiences follow “tall, dark, and handsome” into a quiet Midwestern town that boasts one diner, one bar, and one car shop. A little rock ‘n’ roll and the town bursts to life.
Auditions are scheduled March 22 in the Grand Lake Community House. Those interested are encouraged to call the RMRT administrative office to register for an appointment. Auditions for children will be at either 1 or 1:30 p.m. High school students and adults will be at either 2 or 3 p.m.
Guests artists must bring sheet music for a song of their choosing, (in a key that fits their voice), from musical theater repertoire. No pop, rock or classical art songs are to be admitted. An accompanist will be provided (no accompaniment tapes or CDs). Script samples may be viewed at the RMRT office in Grand Lake, or at a music retailer.
