Wreck The Halls - A Musical Slay Ride
Audition will be held on Saturday, September 7th from 6:30 to 9 pm at the theatre.
Nothing is sacred in this SLAY ride of adult humor that rips the shiny bows and pretty wrapping off the holiday season. The show features two acts of music-filled satire and burlesque that turns the last quarter of the calendar belly up. But audiences should be warned - they'll never look at Kris Kringle the same way again. Note: Due to adult situations and language, it is not recommended for the younger elves.
Needed: Tenor with great comic ability. Age range 30-60. Some movement. No heavy dancing.
WRECK THE HALLS is an original holiday revue by area composer Bradford Blake. It is sub-titled A MUSICAL SLAY RIDE. Two acts of irreverent parody and naughty humor.
The other five roles in the six-member ensemble are cast. The tenor role (Man 1) has two solos: BLACK FRIDAY (about his wife going overboard with her Black Friday spending) and THE COLORS OF CHRISTMAS (Suddenly single at Christmas has left him with nothing but blue Christmas balls). In addition to the solos, Man 1 has 1 duet, 2 trios, 2 quartets and 5 group numbers with the entire cast. Top note: Ab above middle C.
Rehearsals to begin early October.

Please come prepared with a ballad and uptempo that show your range. Selections leading toward the comic side welcomed. Be sure to bring sheet music IN YOUR KEY.
All auditionees must sing with piano accompaniment. No a cappella and no recorded tracks will be permitted.
No charts or fake books, no notes on napkins, no music on phones or tablets. Music selection of 32 bars should be clearly marked. Music should be in a binder or on no more than two loose separate sheets across (no stapled music.) so that it's possible to set it on a standard music stand. If it's in a book, it needs to stay open when on a music stand.
