Information: Please arrive to auditions at either of the dates mentioned as close to 7PM as possible. Please come with a prepared song—sheet music or karaoke CD (music only; no one singing on the CD).  Even if you are auditioning for a non-singing role, we would like for you to sing something; even “Happy Birthday”.  An accompanist will be provided and we will have a CD player on hand if needed.  No monologues necessary.  Those being considered for singing roles and non-singing roles will be asked to read from the script which will be given and assigned to you at the audition or callbacks.

CTG believes in non-traditional casting and encourages everyone to come out.  Please bring your calendar so you can list any and all conflicts during the rehearsal period.

Rehearsals begin approximately Monday, March 14

Additional information: GYPSY is the ultimate show biz story about the ultimate stage mother. Join Rose, June and Louise in their trip across the United States during the 1920′s, when vaudeville was dying and burlesque was born. Jule Styne’s music and Stephen Sondheim’s lyrics include one showstopper after the other including Let Me Entertain You, You’ll Never Get Away from Me, All I Need Is the Girl, Everything’s Coming Up Roses, You Gotta Get A Gimmick and Together Wherever We Go. Local celebrity Pauline Cobrda reprises her amazing portrayal as Momma Rose in one of Broadway’s greatest all-time musicals!
