JRT announces audition dates second musical of the 2017-2018 season

Jonesborough Repertory Theatre has announced the audition dates for the second production of their 2017-2018 season.  As you already know, JRT will be kicking off their new season in a classic style with the wildly popular, Beauty and the Beast on stage in September.  In a major change of pace, they will usher in Halloween by presenting the ‘electrifying’ stage adaptation of Mel Brooks’ hilarious film, Young Frankenstein.

The stage version has all of the familiar characters, Frederick Frankenstein (grandson to Victor), hunchback sidekick Igor, and lab assistant Inga along with the songs you cannot forget even if you try including “He Vas My Boyfriend” and “Puttin’ on the Ritz”, just to name a few.

The cast consists of 8 featured roles and a host of ensemble members.  JRT advises that auditions will be limited to persons 18 and older.

It’s alive! It’s energetic, hilarious, and thrilling! It’s the Mel Brooks Musical, Young Frankenstein! Join us for auditions on June 11th and 12th at 7:00pm at the Jonesborough Repertory Theatre.

Auditions are for ages 18 and older and will consist of a group dance, group singing, and cold readings. If auditioning for a lead role, please come prepared with a music solo piece of less than one minute.

Production dates are Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays, October 20th – November 5th. For more information, contact the director, Karen Elb, at kelb27@gmail.com.

Additional information can always be found on the JRT website and you can also view the event on Facebook.
