CPCC Theatre Auditions for I Love a Paino

  

CPCC Theatre will hold auditions on December 7th  and 8th at 7:00pm in the Rehearsal Hall Overcash 300 on the college’s Central Campus. We are looking for 3 men and 3 women.

I Love a Piano is the celebration of the music and lyrics of one of America’s most prolific songwriters Irving Berlin. Containing over sixty of Irving Berlin’s most beloved songs, the show includes such classics as “Blue Skies”, “There’s No Business Like Show Business”, “Puttin’ on the Ritz”, “White Christmas”, “God Bless American” and of course “I Love a Piano”. Alternating heartbreaking and hilarious, rousing and reflective, I Love a Piano is a fitting tribute to the man Jerome Kern said had “no place in American music- he is American music”.

There are roles for 3 men and 3 women.  All ages are encouraged to audition. 2 characters must tap.

Each auditionee should have a prepared song of at least 16 bars and sheet music in appropriate key. Be dressed to move. An accompanist will be provided. Rehearsal will begin on January 4th.
