Audition dates for The King and I, the 2009-2010 season’s Civic Under the Stars production, have been announced. Director Rob Spaulding will be holding auditions for the general cast and singers on May 3, 4 and 5 from 7 p.m. – 10 p.m. at the old Teachers Delight space at Market Square on Elmwood Avenue.
Actors should come prepared with a short monologue if possible, and also plan on staying for some readings. Singers will audition with music from the show – “Getting to Know You,” “Whistle a Happy Tune” or “We Kiss in the Shadows” – as well as run through arpeggios to test vocal range.
Auditions for dancers will take place May 8 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Lafayette Ballet ballroom at 226 N. 6th Street, Suite 300.
Dancers are asked to wear close-fitting dance attire with their hair pulled away from the face. Please wear ballet shoes, jazz shoes or audition barefoot. No dance sneakers or street shoes are allowed. Dancers should be prepared to take a short warm-up class to learn a sequence of choreography and perform it at the audition. No prepared routines will be required.
The King and I will be performed at the Tippecanoe County Amphitheatre on July 10, 11, 17 and 18.
