Spring 2016 Production

Auditions for the Kurt Vonnegut musical, God Bless You Mr Rosewater

CCCC's Performing Arts program will hold open auditions for Kurt Vonnegut's musical GOD BLESS YOU MR. ROSEWATER on Thursday, February 4, 6:30–8:30pm and Saturday, February 6, from 4:30–6:30pm in the Studio Theatre in the Tilden Arts Center. Call backs, if necessary, will be held on Sunday February 7.

Cover of the book: God Bless You Mr. Rosewater"With a book and lyrics by Howard Ashman, Dennis Green and music by Alan Menken, this hidden gem marks the first collaboration for the Ashman and Menken Oscar and TONY-winning team that brought us such hits as BEAUTY AND THE BEAST, THE LITTLE MERMAID and LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS," according to incoming Performing Arts Coordinator Ross MacDonald.

Kurt Vonnegut's GOD BLESS YOU MR. ROSEWATER is an outrageous and savagely funny fantasy about people, their pleasures, pains, and perversions, a penetrating satire on insanity – a millionaire's private lunacy. The result is Vonnegut's funniest satire, an etched-in-acid portrayal of the greed, hypocrisy, and follies of the flesh we are all heir to.

Director Vana Trudeau invites students, faculty, and community members to audition for the diverse and eclectic cast. With singing and speaking roles available, those auditioning for principal characters should prepare 16 bars of their favorite song and bring sheet music or appropriate accompaniment. Singing acapella is not advised. Performers should also be prepared for movement. Headshots and resumes are requested and prepared monologues are welcome, but not required.

Rehearsals will begin the week of February 7 and production dates will run from April 7–24 on the Tilden Arts Center Main Stage.
