FID 2 Tev & Frumah

Taking a trip to the 90’s when AMT did “Fiddler on the Roof”! Loren Jackson played the milkman Tevya. In one of his efforts to make his daughters happy, he spins a tale to his wife about how he was visited by the spirit Frumah Sarah (Played here by Ronnie Arn Brockett). I thought everyone would get a kick out of this one while they waited for audition results for our summer show “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying”! Enjoy!

Now, it’s the last night and we need more people to come out and audition for roles. Auditions begin at 6:30pm at  the Flickinger Center. You won’t want to miss out.

How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying is the story of window washer J. Pierpont Finch. After Finch happens upon a book entitled ‘How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying’, he decides to begin his rise up the corporate ladder. With the help of his handy book, Finch quickly gains promotions and outsmarts his rival, Bud Frump – who also happens to be the boss’s nephew. Along the way Finch gains the love of Rosemary, a secretary at the company. The story highlights the classic songs “Happy to Keep his Dinner Warm”, “I Believe in You” and “Brotherhood of Man”.

During the auditions, you are asked to sing a short selection (sixteen bars preferred) and read a short selection from the musical (provided by the casting committee).

nicubunu_Woman_Silhouette_2Auditions are a week away and we are featuring the last of the character bios of the cast of characters of “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying”.  Set in the 1960′s, we are looking for a mix of strong singers and dancers to play executives and secretaries, all with the style and swagger of the cast of Mad Men. This weeks biography features the very buxom Hedy La Rue. (mezzo 21-35)

Hedy is a voluptuous, sexually charged woman adored by all men who lay eyes on her. Ex-night-club cigarette girl who gets a job at the company because of Biggley’s personal interest in her. She may appear to be dim-witted, but she knows how to use her sexuality to get what she wants.

Auditions for the show are May 21st & 23rd at the Flickinger Center for the Performing Arts. If cast, actors must be available for all rehearsals and performance dates.  If you have any questions, please feel free to leave a comment. We will get back with you promptly!
