Auditions: December 14, 2021
In celebration of the American musical and one its vanguards, Gaslight Theatre Company will present FINISHING THE HAT: An American Musical Retrospective. This musical revue honors Stephen Sondheim, his influences—such as Rodgers and Hammerstein—and those he influenced—such as Jonathan Larson and Jason Robert Brown.
Auditions will be held on Tuesday, December 14 from 7-9 p.m. at the George P. Maffei Theatre at King’s College (see directions below). Those interested in auditioning should prepare 32 bars of the song of your choice that fits the theme. Solos, duets, and small ensembles up to four singers are welcome. Please provide sheet music for the accompanist or have a canned track available. If you have a conflict for in-person auditions, please email email@example.com for more information on submitting a video audition.
Two to three rehearsals will be scheduled the week of January 4 at King’s Theatre. Pieces will be divided and rehearsed according to singer conflicts, so it is critical to provide your full schedule at the time of auditions. Two technical rehearsals will be held January 12-13; all performers will be required to attend. Performances will be held January 14-16.
New Episodes every friday!
When the pandemic forces theatre closed, you get creative! Gaslight presents BYE PAL, created and written by one of our favorite regional playwrights and Gaslight alums, Emily Halbing.
Meet Phoebe and Jillian: two gal pal roomies and lifelong BFFs living it up in the big city! That is, until the year 2020 when the world is suddenly a trash can engulfed in flames, and Phoebe, like so many others, flees for the reprieve of suburbia. The sudden separation leaves them both lonesome and clingy, but they have a super fun solution: mandatory scheduled weekly phone calls. Will this replace Taco Tuesdays? Falafel Fridays?? Salami Saturdays??? Probably not. But they spend too much time together anyway. Some roommates aren’t even friends.
