Auditions for

Singin' In The Rain

Directed by Megan Worthen Nelson

Synopsis:
It’s 1927 when the transition is made from silent films to “talkies”, but everyone is having trouble adapting. Don Lockwood and Lina Lamont may have been cast repeatedly as the romantic couple of the silver screen, but behind the scenes, things aren’t always as they appear on the big screen. With their latest film being made into a musical, Lamont’s squeaky voice might be the end of her career without the help of a talented young actress to do the talking and singing for her.

Performance Dates:
The show runs from Friday, August 19th through Saturday, September 10th.

Auditions:
Tuesday, May 17th from 6 PM - 9 PM Wednesday, May 18th from 6 PM - 9 PM

Callbacks:
Callbacks will be by invitation only on Saturday, May 21st, 2022 starting at 9:00 AM.

In casting your show, an inclusive approach is suggested.

There is no such suggestion with regard to any of the other characters, regardless of how those characters have been cast in other productions. The gender of the characters, however, must remain as written in the script.
