Renton Civic Theatre
Dates: 9/26-27/2022, 7-10 PM
This six-cast member show is an energetic fun and funny romp through the music, dance and comedy of the movies of the 1930’s. The cast is required to sing, dance (including tap) and act in the style of the movies of those years, with scenes often found online for reference. Act II is a stage version of a Marx Brothers film that would feature Groucho, Chico, Harpo, Madam Dumont, and a lovely ingénue couple.
The auditions will take place at Renton Civic Theatre, 507 S Third Street, Renton, on Monday and Tuesday, September 26 and 27, from 7-10 PM both days. Callbacks (on Wednesday, September 28, 7-10 PM) will require those who audition to read from the script in imitation of these six characters. You will also be asked to sing particular songs and participate in a dance audition.
A stipend of $125 is paid to all actors
