AUDITIONS ANNOUNCED FOR THOROUGHLY MODERN MILLIE, JR.

Director Maye Hart will be holding auditions for the 2018 Kid’s Theater Workshop production of Thoroughly Modern Millie, Jr. on Sunday and Monday, December 17 and 18, at 4 pm each day. The Kid’s Theater Workshop is open to kids ages 8 to 18, and the kids learn about all phases of stage production including acting, singing, some dancing, set design and painting, costumes, and lighting. Not all the kids are on stage, some work behind the scenes in the technical aspects of the show. The show will run the week of February 19 to 24, with two matinee performances on Tuesday and Wednesday for local schools and three evening performances on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Set strike and cast party is on Sunday of that week.

Auditioners for the show will be taught a song from the show and will be asked to sing in a group and solo. Individuals may prepare a brief solo to sing from the show or another source, but that is not required. They will also be taught some basic dance steps and asked to read from the script. Anyone who just wants to participate in the technical side should also show up at auditions and check in with the director.

Filled with fun flappers, dashing leading men and a villainess audiences will love to hate, Thoroughly Modern Millie Jr. is a clever adaptation of the six-time-Tony-Award-winning Best Musical and the Academy Award-winning film. Thoroughly Modern Millie JR., is the high-spirited musical romp that has all of New York dancing the Charleston!

It’s 1922 in New York City, and a young Millie Dillmount has just moved to the Big Apple in search of a new life.  Her grand plan is to find a job as a secretary for a wealthy man and then marry him. However, her plan goes completely awry. Millie’s wealthy boss is slow in proposing marriage, and the man she actually falls in love with doesn't have a dime to his name – or so he tells her.  What’s a small town girl to do?

With 12 featured roles and a great ensemble cast and irresistible songs, this show is bound to be a hit with audiences. The Kid’s Theater Workshop is a program by kids, for kids, providing participants with the basics of stage performing and production.

ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO’S NEST TO AUDITION IN JANUARY

As part of our 50th Anniversary Season, the Players’ will present One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest in March, and director Meggin Dail will be reprising her director’s role. Meggin will hold auditions for the show at The Scenic Theatre on Sunday, January 7 and Monday, January 8 at 7 pm both nights. The cast consists of thirteen men and 4 women, and the show will run at The Scenic on March 9, 10, 16 and 17.

One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest tells the story of a charming rogue, Randall McMurray, who contrives to serve a short sentence in an airy mental institution rather than in a prison. This, he learns, was a mistake. He clashes with the head nurse, Nurse Ratchett, a fierce martinet. But he quickly takes over the yard and accomplishes what the medical profession has been unable to do for twelve years, making a presumed deaf and dumb patient talk and leading others out of introversion, staging a revolt so that they can see the World Series on television, and arranging a rollicking midnight party with liquor and chippies. But Nurse Ratchett has other plans for him.

With meaty roles for actors, Cuckoo’s Nest is at times funny, at times tragic, and the audience becomes the cheerleaders for the hero and his cohorts. If you have any questions about the auditions, contact Meggin Dail at meggin@pittsfieldplayers.com.
