WEST SIDE STORY AUDITIONS!

Open auditions for the award winning musical West Side Story will be held at the Evansville Civic Theatre on November 10 & 11 from 6-9 pm. Those auditioning need only attend one night. A mandatory callback session is scheduled for November 12 that will begin at 6 pm. Anyone wishing to have a "leading role" must attend the callbacks.

Actors auditioning should come prepared with a 16-bar cut of a song from any classic musical (a CD player and piano will be provided). Please bring your own accompanist if needed. Dress comfortably as you WILL be moving around and dancing!

Auditions are open to all area students ages 13-18. This musical opens the doors for performers of all genders, ethnicities and body types. Ad...ults interested in reading for the roles of Officer Krupke, Glad Hand, Doc, or Schrank need only attend one of the audition dates (call backs not necessary).

Rehearsals will begin the following week (Nov. 16). Like most after-school programs there will be a small participation fee for involvement ($40). This fee is essential for purchasing the rights, scripts, rehearsal tracks, and costumes needed for a production of this size.

West Side Story will be performed January 16-25 at the Evansville Civic Theatre located at 717 N. Fulton Ave.

About The Show:
Join some of Evansville’s finest young performers in this unforgettable musical production. The world's greatest love story takes to the streets in this landmark Broadway musical that is one of the theatre's finest accomplishments. Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet is transported to contemporary New York City, as two young idealistic lovers find themselves caught between warring street gangs, the "American" Jets and the Puerto Rican Sharks. Their struggle to survive in a world of hate, violence and prejudice is one of the most innovative, heart-wrenching and relevant musical dramas of our time. Previous NEXTWAVE director, Clay Prindle, returns to take on this ambitious musical!
