Lincoln Community Playhouse will hold auditions for Something Rotten, a musical comedy, on July 11th and 12th, beginning at 7:00 p.m. at the Playhouse. Roles are available for eight male-identifying actors, two female-identifying actors, and an ensemble. Actors, ages 16 and above, should sign up for a one-hour audition slot at lincolnplayhouse.com and bring a prepared, 32-measure solo (not from Something Rotten, an accompanist is provided). Actors will also be asked to learn a short dance routine. Callbacks will be held July 13th.
Actors involved in Pinewood Bowl’s production of Newsies or Nebraska Communities Playhouse’s production of Matilda may submit video auditions to firstname.lastname@example.org. Rehearsals will begin on July 18th with performances September 16-18 and 23-25.
Something Rotten, by Karey Kirkpatrick, John O’Farrell, and Wayne Kirkpatrick, is the hysterical story of Nick and Nigel Bottom, two brothers, who are desperate to write a hit play but are stuck in the shadow of rockstar playwright, Shakespeare. When a local soothsayer foretells that the future of theatre involves singing, dancing, and acting at the same time, Nick and Nigel set out to write the world’s first musical!
Something Rotten will be directed by Morrie Enders with Gretchen Foley as music director, Ted Blessing as choreographer, and Barb Armstead as stage manager.
