The Encore Musical Theatre Company announces auditions for the second show of their 10th season: Anything Goes, directed by Thalia V. Schramm, music directed by Tyler Driskill, and choreographed by Rachel Costantino.
With a magical score by Cole Porter, Anything Goes concerns the madcap antics aboard an ocean liner bound from New York to London. Billy Crocker is a stowaway in love with heiress Hope Harcourt, who is engaged to Lord Evelyn Oakleigh. Nightclub singer Reno Sweeney and Public Enemy #13 Moonface Martin aid Billy in his quest to win Hope. The musical introduced such songs as “Anything Goes”, “You’re the Top”, and “I Get a Kick Out of You.”
For the audition, please prepare two 32-bar cute of contrasting Cole Porter songs. Bring your sheet music clearly printed, double sided in a binder for the music director.
Auditions for this production will take place Sunday, July 23rd from 7pm-10pm, and Monday, July 24th from 7pm-10pm. Please email Casting Director, Thalia Schramm to schedule an audition.
