GENERAL AUDITION INFO

No appointments are needed.

Just show up and you will be seen in the order you arrive. Of course, if you're asked to stay to read and/or dance, you may be around a while.

If auditioning for a musical, prepare a brief song in the style of the show and have sheet music in the proper key. Also, bring proper footwear to dance in if needed.

For non-musicals, you will be given pre-selected sides from the script.

CALLBACKS: We often don't need to see people at a callback. Sometimes we see all we need to at the initial auditions. Not being called back does not mean you are not being considered for the production.

CASTING: We do our best to be respectful to all who audition by reaching out to those who have not been cast. We ALWAYS ask those cast to keep that information to themselves until we have reached everyone who was not cast - unfortunately, that doesn't always happens and our best efforts at sparing hard feelings are thwarted.

Generally, our rehearsals run Monday thru Thursday evenings from 7pm to 10pm.

FOLLIES

MUSIC & LYRICS BY STEPHEN SONDHEIM
BOOK BY JAMES GOLDMAN

Directed by Karen Randazzo
Music Direction by Greg Chrzczon

The story concerns a reunion in a crumbling Broadway theatre scheduled for demolition, of the past performers of the "Weismann's Follies," a musical revue (based on the Ziegfield Follies), that played in that theatre between the World Wars. It focuses on two couples, Buddy and Sally Durant Plummer and Benjamin and Phyllis Rogers Stone, who are attending the reunion. Sally and Phyllis were showgirls in the Follies. Both couples are deeply unhappy with their marriages. Buddy, a traveling salesman, is having an affair with a girl on the road; Sally is still as much in love with Ben as she was years ago; and Ben is so self-absorbed that Phyllis feels emotionally abandoned. Several of the former showgirls perform their old numbers, sometimes accompanied by the ghosts of their former selves.
