TheatreWorks New Milford Holds Casting Call for Stephen Sondheim's 'Merrily We Roll Along' May 14 and May 21
NEW MILFORD, CONN. (May 4, 2017) - TheatreWorks New Milford is seeking a cast of seven female, seven male and one child actors/singers this classic Stephen Sondheim musical on Sunday May 14 and Sunday May 21 from 7 pm to 9 pm. The director is Brad Blake and the music director is Charles Smith.
Merrily We Roll Along begins in the present and moves backwards, tracing the lives of wealthy, jaded composer Franklin Shepard and his two estranged friends through each milestone of their personal and professional lives (good and bad). The show ends with a touch of rueful irony, as the three best friends at the start of their careers face a bright future: young, talented and enthusiastic about the worlds waiting to be conquered. Merrily We Roll Along is a modest-sized show that crackles with the wit, humor and intensity that embody the spirit of New York City. With a brilliant "Broadway-style" score and that deep insight one expects from any Sondheim endeavor, Merrily We Roll Along is a spirited and moving cautionary tale for anyone who has ever pursued a dream.
All roles are available and both professionals and amateurs are welcome. TheatreWorks offers a stipend to all performers, technicians, and directors. AUDITION REQUIREMENTS CAN BE FOUND ON OUR WEBSITE http://theatreworks.us/actors/index.php
Rehearsals begin in July with performances running weekends September 22 to October 21.
