A NOTE FROM SHELLY:
We need men! Isn't that the way it always goes? Unless you're doing Nunsense or Steel Magnolias...but we're not...we're doing Seven Brides for Seven Brothers. So we need 7 brothers and 6 suitors.
That's 13 men, if my math is right. We also need additional men for the fathers, a preacher & Mr. Bixby. So if you're a man and you're looking for a musical...look no further! This is your big chance!!! And ladies...we can't do the show without at least seven of you!
It is a large cast musical...we will be casting townspeople - men, women, teens & (very few) children.
For auditions, please bring sheet music and plan to sing 16 bars of a song from the musical or a song in a similar style. Please, no a cappella auditions. For dance auditions, please wear appropriate shoes (no flip flops, please).
You will also be asked to read from the script. Auditions are stressful for everyone...including the director...please relax and enjoy the experience as much as possible! Let go and just have fun. If you are interested in participating back stage (costumes, hair, make-up, props, lights, sound, spotlight), we'd love to talk to you...come to auditions and let us know your area of interest.
Putnam County Playhouse is a wonderful place to participate in live theater...a great place for families and a great place to make friends. We hope you'll come out and be a part of the opening show for the 2015 season at Putnam County
It's going to be an amazing season!
Twenty years ago, I played one of the brides in Seven Brides for Seven Brothers...and now I have the joy of directing this wonderful musical. It is my sincere hope that my cast will have every bit as much fun as I did 20 years ago...it's a great show with lots of good roles!
