|Recurring Event (See all)
An event every day that lasts 0 day(s) and 0 hour(s), the last of which will begin on March 20, 2017

Auditions for the musical “Cabaret” (the 1998 revival version) will be held Sunday and Monday, March 19 and 20 at 7 p.m., with callbacks on Wednesday, March 22.
Please prepare 16 bars of a Broadway theater song (an accompanist will be provided) and be prepared for a dance audition if you’re interested in the roles of the Emcee or Sally or the Ensemble. Leads will also read briefly from the script. You may sing from the score, but not the title song.
Rehearsals will be held Mondays-Thursdays till opening, with perhaps a couple of Sunday evenings if needed. (We will not rehearse Mother’s Day.) Performances are May 18-June 4. No performance conflicts, please.
Director: Manning Dandridge. Music Director: George Moravek. Choreographer: Chelsea Chizever.
Email questions to the director at manningdand@outlook.com.
Roles available:
Emcee: Male 23+. Host of the play and the Kit Kat Klub. Thinking of a suave, Dracula-type approach, but we are open to a more traditional, impish portrayal.
Sally Bowles: Female. Should be able to play early 20’s+. The key to Sally is that she is very insecure but tries to hide it with false bravado. Must be able to project vulnerability and need not be a powerhouse singer. We are looking for Sally Bowles, not Liza Minnelli. English accent a plus.
Cliff Bradshaw: Male. Should look late 20’s-late 30’s. A confused bisexual American writer who becomes Sally’s lover. Minimal singing.
Fraulein Schneider: Female. 50+. World-weary but still with a zest for life, she runs a local boarding house where most of the characters reside. Ability to ACT her songs is more important than being a good singer. Slight German accent.
Herr Schultz: Late 40s+. Shy but lovable Jewish grocer who is linked romantically to Schneider. Slight German accent. Must be able to carry a tune.
Ernst Ludwig: late 20s+. Nazi smuggler and sympathizer, somewhat the villain of the play. Must be able to sing “Tomorrow Belongs to Me” forcefully.
Fraulein Kost: Female. 30+. Prostitute who lives in the boarding house. Earthy and funny. Minimal singing.
Ensemble will consist of several men and women, age negotiable. Must be decent dancers and look reasonably attractive in skimpy, sexy clothing.
Young Boy 9-14 to sing “Tomorrow Belongs to Me.” This is a 2-3 minute scene, with no additional stage time.
