Aberdeen Community Theatre is holding auditions for its summer musical, Chicago, April 17-18 at the Capitol Theatre, 415 S. Main St.
Singing and reading auditions are at 6 p.m. April 17. Dancing auditions are at 7 p.m. April 18. Anyone interested in spoken roles need only attend the April 17 auditions.
In Chicago, set in the 1930s, Roxie Hart is sent to prison for killing the man who tried walking out on her. In prison she meets up with Velma Kelly, a big-time vaudeville star with twice as much blood on her hands. The show follows the two as they attempt to get away free - and with as much fame as they can muster.
A cast of nine women, 11 men and a chorus is needed. Roles designated as spoken will not involve singing or dancing; all other roles will require it. For the complete list of roles go to aberdeencommunitytheatre.com.
Everyone auditioning should be familiar with the music from the show and, if possible, prepare a song from the score.
Scripts/scores will be available for reading in the ACT office, 417 S. Main St., from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. No prior experience is necessary to audition.
Tentative production dates are mid-June.
If you are interested in working behind the scenes, attend one audition session to sign up.
Those interested in auditioning but who cannot make auditions should contact ACT's office at 605-225-2228 or firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange an alternate time.
