Dancers, Singers Invited Tuesday, Aug. 10
The Western Nevada Musical Theatre Company invites auditions for the new stage adaptation of Irving Berlin's White Christmas, 6 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 10, in Sarah Winnemucca Hall at Western Nevada College Carson City.
The classic musical will play weekends at the Carson City Community Center November 6-21. The show is about a successful song and dance team that collaborates with a sister act to save the inn of their former commanding general. It is based on the 1954 movie starring Bing Crosby, Danny Kaye, Rosemary Clooney and Vera-Ellen.
The cast will include 11 principal and secondary roles, a dance troupe and a chorus. White Christmas is a significant dance show with choreography that requires experienced tap, jazz and musical theatre dancers. Dance troupe auditioners should bring both tap and jazz shoes to the audition at 7 p.m., Tuesday, Aug. 10.
All auditioners should come prepared to sing a song that is less than one minute long. They should bring a taped accompaniment or provide the accompanist with a musical score - a capella auditions are not advised. Solo auditions are recommended. Callbacks for some performers will follow on Thursday evening.
