PHOENIX PRODUCTIONS TO HOLD AUDITIONS FOR “GYPSY”

Extra! Extra!

Auditions are coming up THIS WEEK for Phoenix's revival of Gypsy, coming to the Count Basie Theatre in September!

Producer: Lindsay Wood
Director: Tom Martini
Musical Director: Bob Sammond
Choreographer: Elise Klinger

WHEN: Saturday, July 16th, 1pm - 2pm for ages 7 to 13; 2pm - 4pm for everyone else. Monday & Wednesday, July 18th & 20th, 6:30pm - 7pm for ages 7 to 13; 7pm - 9pm for everyone else
WHERE:
Phoenix Performing Arts Center, 59 Chestnut Street in Red Bank.

Set in the 1920s (when the Basie was built), Gypsy is based on a true story that follows the life of a shy young child performer in vaudeville (with a domineering stage mother) who grows up to become the most famous burlesque star of all time, Gypsy Rose Lee.

All auditioners are asked to prepare 16 bars of a ballad or an up-tempo selection in the style of the show that demonstrates both their vocal and storytelling abilities. There will be a dance audition for those being considered for a role that requires movement.

The show will play at the Count Basie Theatre September 16, 17, 18, 23, 24 and 25.
