CALL TO AUDITION: PAINT YOUR WAGON

PaintYourWagon

PAINT YOUR WAGON
Director: Daniel Eilola
Music Director: Roger Blankenship
Choreographer: Katie Petronio

Synopsis:
In California in May 1853, Ben Rumson strikes gold and establishes a community in his own name. The show follows the progress of the town as hundreds of men come to dig for gold. But there’s a problem, the town has no women! That is soon remedied and the town competes for the affections of too few women. Filled with gorgeous standards such as “They Call the Wind Maria,” “I Talk to the Trees,” and “Wand’rin’ Star,” Paint Your Wagon is Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe’s sweepingly ambitious and surprisingly realistic take on freedom and family, in the Gold Rush-happy America of 1853.

Audition Dates:
November 6th & 7th, 7pm at the Lake Worth Playhouse

Possible callbacks on November 8th. No appointment necessary
Please prepare 16 bars of a song in the style of the show. Bring sheet music in your key; an accompanist will be provided. A CD with an accompaniment-only track is also acceptable, provided it is edited and cued correctly. No acappella auditions. Please also wear or bring comfortable attire, as all auditioners will be required to move.
