We are very excited to be staging "THE WEDDING SINGER" this summer. Based on the wildly popular movie starring Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore, this musical tells the story of a struggling musician -- recently jilted -- and the growing feelings he has for a friend who is planning her own wedding. Set in the fashionable '80s, this musical promises to be pure entertainment.
The show opens in July, but for now, we want to concentrate on our auditions. They will be held on May 19 and 20 beginning at 6 p.m. Here is the breakdown:
6:00 -- 8:00 MONDAY, May 19 auditions for children ages 8 - 12. Children will be included in group scenes. This audition will be simple. This is the only time children may audition.
8:00 MONDAY, May 19 -- adults and teens 13 and up will audition. This will consist of singing a prepared song, a simple dance audition and readings at the director's discretion.
6:00 TUESDAY, May 20 -- adults and teens as above.
Audition callbacks will be at 7:00 PM WEDNESDAY, May 21.
"The Wedding Singer" features impersonators such as the Reagans, Imelda Marcos, Billy Idol, Mr. T and Cyndi Lauper. This will be a great time-travel back to shoulder pads and big hair!!!
The auditions will be held at West Allis Central Auditorium, 8516 West Lincoln Avenue in West Allis.
For specific questions, please email director Teresa Drews at Drews.firstname.lastname@example.org
Hope to see many talented actors and singers at our auditions!!!
