AUDITIONS for CHORUS for “The Most Happy Fella”

Produced by Skylark Opera Theatre - Directed by Bob Neu

 

We will be auditioning to fill chorus roles for this masterpiece by Frank (“Guys and Dolls”) Loesser. Written in 1956, the piece enjoyed a successful Broadway run of 676 performances and has since been revived in 1959, 1979 and 1992, and was produced by New York City Opera in 2006. Most recently, it received a production in 2014 on the New York Encore Series starring Laura Benanti and Cheyenne Jackson.

 

Rehearsals begin September 13.

Performances Oct. 11-13 and 18-20.

Chorus will be called on weekday evenings; and weekend mornings, afternoons and evenings.

 

All are welcome (age 18 and older) (non-Equity).

The vocal requirements are extensive; the dancing (movement) requirements are modest. All chorus members will be playing multiple roles.

Accompanist provided.
