AUDITION NOTICE:  Forever Plaid

High school pals Sparky, Jinx, Smudge, and Francis -- the “Plaids” -- are talented “guy group” -- just four nice young men who love singing harmony. When the Plaids are killed in a car accident on the way to their first big gig -- at the Airport Hilton Cocktail Bar, on February 9, 1964 -- the young men linger in limbo, as unresolved as their final chord, until the conjunction of various “astro-technical” phenomena allows them to return to Earth, perform their final concert, and hopefully win a place in Heaven - -  and the deluxe plaid dinner jackets of their dreams. With a warm and clever book by Stuart Ross, Forever Plaid is a delightful, mischievous, and unashamedly heartwarming homage to the sweet and innocent sounds of the ‘50s and the ‘60s, and features harmonically spectacular orchestrations of popular hits such as Three Coins in the Fountain, 16 Tons, and Love Is a Many-Splendored Thing. Forever Plaid is a fun and quick-paced musical with challenging music. We are looking for four men who can look between the ages of 18 and 21. However, everyone who is interested is encouraged to audition. All cast members should be vocally strong, adept actors, and capable of singing in four part harmony. 

Join director Erin McKiernan, Vocal Director Michelle Abad, music director Patty Cummings and Choreographer Jeffrey Bassett for auditions from 6-9PM on Sunday, Feb. 19th  in the Robert B. Stewart Performance Hall; individual solo auditions will be from 6-8PM, with dance auditions from 8-9PM. If necessary, callbacks will be on Monday, Feb. 20th by invitation only.  Please prepare a 2 ˝ minute or less song in the “showtune” style or 1950’s style.  An accompanist and CD player will be available. Performances are May 12-21 in the Robert B. Stewart Performance Hall.  Questions?  Please email director Erin McKiernan at erin.k.mckiernan@gmail.com.
