The Western Nevada Musical Theatre Company is distributing audition information for the Lerner and Loewe masterwork, My Fair Lady, to play in eight performances this November at the Carson City Community Center.
Auditions will be the second week of August. Specific times, location and information on what to prepare for auditions will be emailed to those who sign up for auditions.
My Fair Lady is often considered the pinnacle of the Golden Age of Musical Theatre. This extraordinary work, which follows phonetics professor Harold Higgins as he transforms a lowly flower girl into a glamorous high society woman, captured multiple Tony and Academy Awards. The score captivates with numbers ranging from comic (â€œWhy Canâ€™t a Woman Be More Like a Man?â€) to boisterous (â€œGet Me to the Church On Time,â€) to romantic (â€œI Could Have Danced All Nightâ€).
Casting calls for several featured performers, a part-singing ensemble and a dance troupe. A few children will be selected to be part of the dance troupe. Only a few highly-trained children, maybe four or five, will be selected.
The show will be produced and directed by Stephanie Arrigotti and choreographed by Gina Kaskie Davis. Kevin Murphy conducts the orchestra. Auditioners should email the director at Stephanie.Arrigotti@wnc.edu to be placed on the audition schedule and sent audition information.
