Guy & Dolls Audition Notice

Directed by Sean Duxbury ~ Musical Director Judith Holt

Audition Date – Sunday 18 March 2012 ~ 2:00 pm at the Theatre

Pre-Audition runthroughs: Tuesday 6th March. Thursday 8th March, Tuesday 13th March (7.30pm at the Theatre)

Production Dates: Friday 15 June – Saturday 23 June (not Sunday 17th), 7.30pm

All the hot gamblers are in town, and they're all depending on Nathan Detroit to set up this week's incarnation of "The Oldest Established Permanent Floating Crap Game in New York"; the only problem is, he needs $1000 to get the place. Throw in Sarah Brown, who's short on sinners at the mission she runs; Sky Masterson, who accepts Nathan's $1000 bet that he can't get Sarah Brown to go with him to Havana; Miss Adelaide, who wants Nathan to marry her; Police Lieutenant Brannigan, who always seems to appear at the wrong time; and the music/lyrics of Frank Loesser, and you've got quite a musical.

Includes the songs: "Luck Be a Lady", "Sit Down, You're Rocking the Boat”, “Guy & Dolls”.

We will be running a series of pre-audition rehearsals at the theatre starting on Tuesday 21 Feb starting at 7:30pm at the theatre so that people can familiarise themselves with the numbers and meet the production team to get some idea of what the musical (and our interpretation) is all about.

Please note you must be 16 years or older to take part in this production.
