Paris Junior College will audition for “1776: The Musical” on Tuesdays and Wednesdays at 6pm at the Ray E. Currer Theater.
Directed by PJC Drama Instructor Will Walker, the musical “Raise Your Voice!” Will be the second production. Season of PJC Drama Department. Performances will be on December 2-4 at 7:30 pm and December 5 at 2:30 pm.
People of all experimental levels, genders, races and physical types over the age of 18 are encouraged to try out 27 actors as needed. Participants do not need to attend PC classes to participate.
In addition to performances, actors should be available for technical and dress rehearsals from November 28 to December 1.
“Get ready to read the script scenes, learn a short movement / dance combo and sing from the musical,” Walker said. “It’s a funny, insightful and great drama with a great score and a great book.”
Although many parts, including all the main characters, require some singing, almost as many parts are just spoken words.
The musical, which covers an important event in American history, illuminates the bright life in these highly unconventional Broadway hits. “1776” puts the human face on the pages of history as we see men behind national icons: pride, fear, uncertainty, irritability, charm, often small and ultimately great personalities, right for a fleeing nation. Are committed to work
Auditions will take place on the Dwayne Allen Stage at the Ray E. Carrer Theater in the Administration Building at the Junior College, 2400 Clarksville St. in Paris.
