Community members needed for musical

William Conte, director for the Casper College summer musical production of “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying” is in need of a “mixed bag” of community participants to audition for the musical.

Auditions will take place from 1 to 2 p.m. Callbacks will also take place from 2 to 5 p.m.

Six men, ages 18 to 70, four women, ages 20 to 60, and ensemble members of both sexes and ages are needed to audition for the 20- to 25-member cast, according to Conte. Those auditioning should prepare the standard eight bars of whatever best shows their vocal range, bring their own music for the accompanist and be prepared to read provided excerpts from the script, Conte said.

Those auditioning are also asked to wear comfortable clothing and “if they have jazz shoes and/or character shoes that have not been outside as well as tap shoes if they have them, to bring them. They will need to be ready to move,” said Jodi Youmans-Jones, choreographer.

Rehearsals will begin on May 30, and the Fourth of July will be observed.

The Casper College Theatre and Dance Department will perform “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying,” on July 13-15 and 21-22 at 7:30 p.m. and July 16 and 23 at 2 p.m. To sign up for an audition time, call the theater at 268-2365.
