Saint Martin's to have theater auditions for April musical
Oct. 17, 2005
Lacey – The Saint Martin’s University department of
theatre arts will have open auditions and interviews for a production of
Stephen Sondheim’s musical, “A Little Night Music,” which will be staged
April 5-8. Rehearsals will begin in Late January or early February.
The public is encouraged to audition for parts.
Women 15 and older and men 18 and older are needed. Auditions begin at 6
p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 2, at the university’s Kreielsheimer Arts Education
Building, 5300 Pacific Ave. SE.
Actors should be prepared to sing a song of their
own choosing and should bring piano sheet music along for an
accompanist, who will be provided. The audition also will include a
dance portion, so actors should come dressed in clothing they can move
freely in. The production also will need a variety of backstage helpers:
lighting, set, costume and props designers, technicians, stage managers,
carpenters and electricians.
The show is set in turn of the century in Sweden,
where a middle-age lawyer, Frederik Egerman, is involved in an
unconsummated marriage with his 18-year-old wife, who has caught the
heart of his 19-year-old son. Plotting to capture Frederick’s attentions
is a well-known actress who’s current lover, a count, and his
long-suffering wife, are invited for a weekend at the actress’ family
estate. So are the Egermans, leading to lots of romantic complications.
Among the show’s music is the famed “Send in the Clowns.”
The show will be under the direction of university
theatre arts chair David Hlavsa, with musical direction from the
Assistant Prof. Darrell Born, who heads the university’s music
department. For more information, please contact Hlavsa at 360-438-4345;
