The Windham Theatre Guild holds open auditions for a November performance of the musical “Always, Patsy Cline,” on Wednesday, Sept. 5 at 7 p.m. at Windham Middle School, Quarry Street, Willimantic.
The show revolves around two main characters – famous country/pop star Patsy Cline and her biggest fan Louise Seger.
Auditions will include vocal, acting and improvisational sequences. Prepare a musical number for the vocal audition. Piano accompaniment will be provided. Readings from the script will be provided that evening.
We are filling the following roles:
- Patsy Cline – This role is vocally demanding, singing lead on more than 20 songs. The ideal candidate sounds like Patsy Cline;
- Louise Seger – This is a large acting role with lots of monologues. We are looking for a great actress;
- Back-up singers – Four back-up singers needed, two male and two female.
Director is Victor Funderburk. Musical director is Ken Clark.
Performance dates are Nov. 2, 3, 9, 10, 11, 15, 16 and 17 at the Burton Leavitt Theatre at 779 Main Street in Willimantic, with a special benefit performance on Nov. 4.
