Announcing auditions: The Honky Tonk Angels Holiday Spectacular

Director Bob Mindrum has announced open auditions for The Honky Tonk Angels Holiday Spectacular, the holiday show in the 2011-2012 season at Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette.

Auditions will be held Sunday, Oct. 2 and Monday, Oct. 3 from 7-9 p.m. at the Civic Theatre office, 313 N. 5th Street in downtown Lafayette.

Those auditioning should prepare a song, not from the show. An accompanist will be provided. They also will be asked to read from the script. Copies can be checked out of the Civic Theatre office. A brief dance routine may also be included at the audition, but no preparation is necessary.

The director is seeking four women, including an African-American woman, ranging in age from their 20s to mid-40s. All four must sing both solo and ensemble formats.

Gail Deagan, music director, is seeking musicians for the show, especially guitar, bass and fiddle. Contact Gail directly at 765-426-2905 if interested.

This holiday sequel to The Honky Tonk Angels continues the comic escapades of three good ole country gals as they reunite for a Christmas show like none other at "The Hillbilly Heaven Club" in Nashville. There are many surprising twists and turns in this musical comedy revue, including a gospel soul sister who also happens to be a psychic manicurist. Songs include a Motown Christmas medley, country classics like "Coat of Many Colors" by Dolly Parton and comedy hits such as "Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer."

For more information about the show, call Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette at 765-423-7529 or visit its website.
