WINNI PLAYERS COMMUNITY THEATRE AUDITIONS
the Musical, By Sybille Pearson, Richard Maltby Jr, and David Shire
On Saturday February 14th at 2 pm and Sunday February 15th at 6:30 pm the Winni Players will be holding auditions for the Maltby/Shire musical BABY, directed by Bryan Halperin with
music direction by Judy Hayward and choreography by Jenna Rogato.
Is there anything more exciting, frightening and utterly transformational than impending
parenthood? BABY, the musical from acclaimed duo Richard Maltby, Jr. and David Shire
examines how three couples on a university campus at different stages of life deal with the
painful, rewarding and agonizingly funny consequences of the universal experience of pregnancy and upcoming parenthood.
Auditioners should prepare a musical theatre song of their choosing and bring sheet music to
auditions. All readings will be from the script. Auditions are open to actors ages 18+. For the 6 leads we are looking for dynamic performers equally comfortable with singing and dramatic acting as the believable relationships of the couples in their scenes are critical to the success of the production. The ensemble will consist of performers of all ages to play the various doctors, nurses, real estate agents, college professors, college students, etc that complete the cast of BABY. Actors of all levels of experience and ability are encouraged to attend.
No appointment is necessary – actors should arrive on time to fill out an audition form or
download in advance (coming soon) and attend a short meeting about the auditions and the show before auditions begin. Please be on time! Any questions, contact email@example.com.
Callbacks, if needed, will be Tuesday February 17th at 6:30 pm.
Rehearsals will begin March 3rd and will generally be Saturdays from 1:30-5:30 pm, Sundays
from 6:30-9 pm, and Tuesdays from 6:30-9pm. As of April 21 rehearsal schedule will change to Sundays 1:30-5:30pm, Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6:30-9pm. Performances will be May 7-10, 2015. Not all actors will be needed at all rehearsals.
