We are gearing up for our annual musical and would very much like to invite you to come along to the initial reading of the script and listen to highlights of the music. This will be on Tuesday, 10th June from 8 pm in The Carpenders Park Community Centre. We'd be delighted to see you and any friends who might be interested. Refreshments will be provided.
On Thursday 12th our musical director will be running through the short audition pieces and if you fancy being involved you'll have a chance to audition for the show the following week, on Tuesday 17th and Thursday 19th. We keep things as informal as possible and give you every chance to shine.
The Musical of Musicals - The Musical is a Broadway and off-Broadway hit that has since been staged around the world. The way it's written means that it can be performed by just four actors or a cast of forty. The main principal roles are split equally between men and women and can include up to 20 principals or fewer if we double up. There is also plenty of chorus involvement.
As our handbill states:
Sometimes One Musical Just Isn't Enough
The show is an affectionate parody using the styles of some Broadway's finest. The plot is that hoary old tale of the wicked landlord and the young girl who can’t pay her rent.
The twist is that the tale is retold in the style of:
Rodgers & Hammerstein (Oklahoma, Carousel, South Pacific, The King and I, The Sound of Music)
Stephen Sondheim (Sweeney Todd, Follies, A Little Night Music, West Side Story, Gypsy, Company)
Jerry Herman (Hello Dolly, Mame. La Cage Aux Folles)
Andrew Lloyd Webber (Jesus Christ Superstar, Evita, Phantom of The Opera, Sunset Boulevard)
Kander & Ebb (Cabaret, Chicago, Zorba, The Scottsboro Boys).
