Audition for "Sunday in the Park with George"

Christopher Ceccolini ’11 sends us word of auditons for “Sunday in the Park with George”

“One of the most acclaimed musicals of our time, this moving study of the enigmatic painter Georges Seurat with a score by Stephen Sondheim won a Pulitzer Prize for its deeply insightful and highly personal examination of life through art and the artist.

Act One follows the inarticulate Seurat as he fights a losing battle to maintain a relationship with his mistress Dot as he creates his painting ‘A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte’ amid the scorn of the artistic community. The second act takes place 100 years later, introducing us to his American descendant, also an artist, burned out and uncertain of the path he must take.”

All are welcome to try out! Bring ANY song to sing that will help us gauge your range (you may bring sheet music) and be ready to read some lines. Questions? Email Christopher Ceccolini ’11 (cceccolini at wes)

When: Thursday, January 29: 8-10; Saturday, January 31: 3-5; Sunday, February 1: 2-4
Where: Alpha Delta Phi

    Don’t want to act? Can’t sing? Be a special techie for the show! 1) Running crew that will be treated as actors and have blocking of their own. You will be dressed in black and have no lines, but you’ll have to attend the rehearsals we ask and won’t be a part of the normal tech work, such as stage building and costumes, etc. We need two or three people.2) Anyone who would like to help us paint the set [no, you won’t have to paint the famous paintings]. We don’t need you to be an artistic genius, you’ll be painting buildings and animals on cardboard, but we do need it to look well-drawn and professional.Neither tech will be super-serious and we’re willing to accommodate flexible schedules [actually, everyone except the leads will have pretty flexible schedules, since there are a lot of smaller parts whose scenes can be shuffled a bit before the show goes up at the end of April.]If you’re interested in either tech or have any questions [there are no stupid ones], feel free to email the stage manager at jacheng [at] wes. Please, only questions about these two tech positions. Normal tech will of concern later.Thanks, and I hope you enjoy the snow!
