The Little Theatre of Tuscarawas County will hold auditions for the musical comedy, Promises, Promises, on Sunday and Monday, December 4th and 5th at the Little Theatre of Tuscarawas County.
Promises, Promises is based on the 1960 Oscar-winning film The Apartment, and was nominated for four Tony awards. It is a very funny comedy featuring a book by Broadway legend Neil Simon with songs by Burt Bacharach and Hal David, including such hits as I’ll Never Fall in Love Again, I Say a Little Prayer and A House is not a Home. Infused with the swinging energy of early 1960s Manhattan, the show tells the story of a lovelorn junior executive at an insurance company who seeks to climb the corporate ladder by allowing his apartment to be used by the executive staff.
The show is being directed and choreographed by Bart Herman with music direction by Zac Rusk. The assistant director for the production will be Jay Cochran. Herman will be looking to cast between 11 to 15 women and 15 to 17 men, ages 16 and up. All ethnicities are encouraged to audition. The show does deal with some mature situations.
Auditions will be held from 6pm-9:30pm on Sunday Dec. 4th and Monday Dec. 5th with a possible call back on Tuesday Dec. 6th. All auditioners must prepare 16 bars of a song in the style of the show. You may want to sing a 60’s style pop song. An accompanist will be provided or you may also bring accompaniment tracks. There are many dance numbers in this show, and if you are auditioning for an ensemble role come prepared to dance.
Rehearsals will begin in December and they will run until the show opens in February. Bring all scheduling conflicts with you to the auditions. Production dates are Feb 17-19, 24- 26, and March 3-5. If you have any questions,email director Bart Herman at email@example.com.
