Working 9 to 5 – You Can Sing in the Musical
Think you can replace these singers in “9 to 5, the Musical”? Well, Back Alley Musicals is looking for you. We heard from Julie Ellis that tryouts are next month. Here’s the schedule:Back Alley Musicals will hold tryouts for 9 to 5—The Musical on Sunday, Sept., 15 at 4 p.m. and Monday, Sept. 16, at 6:30 p.m. at The Crown, 107 East Second St.
9 to 5—The Musical, with music and lyrics by Dolly Parton and book by Patricia Resnick, is based on the 1980 hit movie Nine to Five.
Here’s where you come in if you match the following:
A cast of 14 to18 includes three female (ages 20-50) leads, who conspire against one of the firm’s chauvinist bosses (male lead aged 40-50), two love interests (male ages 25 – 40), the office snitch (female age 30 – 50) and four or five other males (ages 15 – 50) and three or four females (aged 30 to 50).
Julie says, “Those wishing to audition should be prepared to sing a song of choice that will show his or her vocal range. Those trying out will be asked to read from the script, learn a little of a song from the show, and learn a bit of choreography”.
You need to dress comfortably and wear shoes appropriate for dancing. Not all singers need to dance and not all dancers need to sing! There are small, non-singing roles and small singing roles as well as major singing-with-some-dancing roles.
9 to 5–The Musical will be performed Nov. 14-17, 2013 (Thursday-Sunday) Jody Berry Theatre at the RiverPark Center.
