Auditions for Rogers & Hammerstein’s Oklahoma!
January 15, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Spring is Coming and so are Auditions for the Spring Musical – Oklahoma!
Auditions for this classic musical will be held Tuesday, January 15 and Wednesday, January 16 from 6:30-9 PM at The Dorset Playhouse.
Suzi Dorgeloh, Director and Producer, Tom Salmon, Music Director, and Kelly Gaiotti, Choreographer will be looking for an ensemble cast including 3 principal women and 4 principal men, a large chorus, and 4-6 girls and boys, age 13 and up, all of whom will be singing and dancing throughout the show. You may bring sheet music or digital accompaniment of a song that showcases your voice, however, Tom will be happy to select a song from the show for you to sing. Please bring sneakers or comfortable shoes as Kelly will instruct small groups in some movement and choreography. You will also read selected scenes from the show.
The story is set in in a small community in the Western Indian Territory at the turn of the century. The high-spirited rivalry between local farmers and cowboys provides a colorful background against which Curly, a handsome cowboy, and Laurey, a winsome farm girl, play out their love story. Love’s journey is as bumpy as a surrey ride down a country road. That they will succeed in making a new life together we have no doubt, and that this new life will begin in a brand-new state provides the ultimate climax to the triumphant OKLAHOMA!
Oklahoma! is sponsored by The Wilburton Inn, RK Miles, Above All Vermont, Errol L. Hill Painting, JOY all things underthings, Spivey, Lemonik & Swenor, PC, The Barn Restaurant, and the Southern Vermont Medical Center.
