Theater looking for musical performers
River City Community Players will conduct auditions for the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical "Carousel."
Auditions will be at 7 p.m. Monday, Jan. 7, Tuesday, Jan. 8, and Wednesday, Jan. 9 at the Leavenworth Performing Arts Center at Fifth and Delaware streets. Callbacks will be at 8 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 9.
Those trying out should be prepared to sing a song of your choice - preferably from a Broadway musical and not from "Carousel." An accompanist will be provided. Singing with a tape, compact disc or a cappella is discouraged.
Prospects are reminded to dress comfortably as they also will spend time with a choreographer to learn a few dance steps. There will be cold readings from the script.
All roles are available, and RCCP is looking for the following:
¢ Principal roles: three women, three men, ages early 20s to mid-30s.
¢ Featured roles: two women, two men, ages 20s to 40s.
¢ Large singing/dancing ensemble, ages mid-teens to 60s.
¢ Several children ages 5 to 16.
Performances will be March 7 and 8, March 14-16 and March 21 and 22.
