The Company will hold Auditions for an Ambitious Jazz Musical, "City of Angels".
About the Play:
"City of Angels" is the rarest of musical comedies: intricate lyrics filled with puns and crackling rhymes, sizzling music written in the contemporary jazz idiom, and a script that couples sidesplitting comedy with neo-noir intensity. Set in the glamorous, seductive Hollywood of the 40s, the world of film studios and flimsy negligees, the show chronicles the misadventures of Stine, a novelist attempting for the first time to adapt one of his texts to the screen at the behest of movie producer/director, Buddy Fidler. The "script" features Stine's hard-boiled hero, a private investigator named Stone. The show follows Stine's screenplay (the "reel" world where he manipulates projected versions of the various women in his life) as well as his "real" world adventures in love and business, culminating in a collision of two worlds. City of Angels features music by Cy Coleman, lyrics by David Zippel and book by Larry Gelbart.
The show will run October 12-21.
Rehearsals beginning the third week of July.
Casting calls for 6 females (all singing roles) and 10 males (7 singing roles), additional ensemble needed. (to see character description please download the file)
Auditioners will be asked to prepare about 32 bars of a Broadway or Big Band-era song in the "jazz standards" style. Songs from the show are acceptable.
