Guys and Dolls is an adaptation of the show considered by many to be the perfect musical comedy. Its namesake ran for 1,200 performances when it opened on Broadway in 1950 and won numerous Tony Awards, including Best Musical. Frank Loesser's brassy, immortal score and witty book makes Guys and Dolls a perennial crowd pleaser.

Set in Damon Runyon's New York City, Guys and Dolls  follows gambler, Nathan Detroit, as he tries to find the cash to set up the biggest crap game in town while the authorities breathe down his neck; meanwhile, his girlfriend and nightclub performer, Adelaide, laments that they've been engaged for fourteen years without ever getting married. Nathan turns to fellow gambler, Sky Masterson, for the dough, but Sky ends up chasing the straight-laced missionary, Sarah Brown. Guys and Dolls JR. takes us from the heart of Times Square to the cafes of Havana, but everyone eventually ends up right where they belong.

Suessical - (Homeschool Theatre for Young Audiences)

This class will be made up of our advanced homeschool kids.  Seussical will involve multiople performances as we will be bringing in students throughout the semester from the school districts.  

Now one of the most performed shows in America, Seussical TYA is a fantastical, magical, musical extravaganza! Tony-winners, Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty (Lucky Stiff, My Favorite Year, Once on This Island, Ragtime) have lovingly brought to life all of our favorite Dr. Seuss characters, including Horton the Elephant, The Cat in the Hat, Gertrude McFuzz, lazy Mayzie and a little boy with a big imagination – Jojo. The colorful characters transport us from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus to the invisible world of the Whos.

The Cat in the Hat tells the story of Horton, an elephant who discovers a speck of dust containing Whos, including Jojo, a Who child sent off to military school for thinking too many "thinks." Horton faces a double challenge – not only must he protect the Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers, but he must guard an abandoned egg, left to his care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird. Although Horton faces ridicule, danger, kidnapping and a trial, the intrepid Gertrude McFuzz never loses faith in him. Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family and community are challenged and emerge triumphant.

Tuition:  $250 (Can be broken up into monthly installments)

The winner of many national awards, this uproarious play about life, death, power and first boyfriends was adapted by the author from her popular book, Good-bye, Best Friend (Harper Paperbacks, 1993). Hollywood-wannabe Star, the ultimate Beatles fan, has her path stymied by cystic fibrosis, an inherited disease that assures a young death. She spends most of her time in the hospital, where she confronts fate with imagination by surrounding herself with MTV-inspired bodyguard Flunkies and 'morphing' her dreaded therapy nurse into a pro-wrestler. Then, Star gets a new roommate, Courtney, who is Star's opposite—a pretty cheerleader and apparently not very sick. Neither girl knows much about the other's world, but eventually they come to understand each other, and ultimately, themselves.

What to Wear:

Please dress appropriately to make a good impression. Take a few extra minutes to fix your hair and select a nice outfit.

What to Prepare:  

For audition please prepare a 16-32 bar cut of a musical theatre song and a one minute monologue to showcase acting ability. Please bring your own accompaniment for song on either a CD, MP3 player, or phone. We will provide a stereo and auxiliary cable to play accompaniment tracks. *A PIANIST WILL NOT BE PROVIDED AND ACAPELLA AUDITIONS ARE NOT DESIRED.

*Select a song from a published musical. Several instrumental tracks can be found for FREE on youtube or on websites like www.hamienet.com . The advantage to being able to audition with your own instrumental track is that you get to practice with the music the exact way it will be played in audition room!

*Select a monologue from a published play. Public Libraries usually have sections devoted to plays and dramatic works and are an excellent source when looking for new material. Another good source (albeit overused and limited) is websites like http://stageagent.com/monologues.

What to Bring to Auditions:

Headshot - Bring a headshot and resume. If you do not have resume please staple audition form to back of headshot. If you do not have a professional headshot, any recent picture is acceptable.

Conflicts - All conflicts for rehearsals must be submitted at the time of audition. Conflicts are taken into consideration when casting. We can usually accommodate a few conflicts if given in advance. However, any additional conflicts that arise after rehearsals begin may result in roles being recast.

Audition Tips:

*Make sure you "slate" properly. A slate is an introduction that states your name, age, and the titles of the pieces you will be performing for your audition. Example:
Hello, my name is Sam Singer.
I am 16 years old.
I will be doing a monologue from the play "You're Gonna Love This" by "Pete Playwright" and I'll be singing "Song" from the musical "Musical".

*Nerves are normal. Just try to remember that the people on the audition panel want you to succeed and do an incredible job!

If you have any questions or qualms about the audition process, please let us help you!  Call 281-516-8382.  Do not let the audition deter you from an amazing experience!
