Back to Back Auditions:
BREAKING UP IS HARD TO DO
LOVE, SEX, AND THE I.R.S.
For the first two weekends in 2013, Surfside Players in Cocoa Beach will be holding AUDITIONS for the next two plays in our season!
Sunday, January 6th, 4:00pm: Breaking Up Is Hard To Do
This comic musical was built around 18 hits by 1960s pop star Neil Sedaka, including "Where the Boys Are", "Sweet Sixteen", "Calendar Girl", "Love Will Keep Us Together", and of course, the chart-topping title song. Marge and her stagestruck best friend Lois arrive at Esther's Paradise Resort in the Catskills in 1960, on a vacation that was intended to be Marge's honeymoon — until the groom left her at the altar. Lois attempts to console Marge by setting her up with the resort's handsome, self-obsessed singer Del Delmonaco. Gazing forlornly at Marge from the wings is geekish cabana boy and aspiring songwriter Gabe. Meanwhile, when he isn't entertaining guests with Borscht Belt shtick, house comic Harvey secretly carries a torch for widowed resort owner Esther.
We need strong singers with some dancing. There are 3 leading women, 3 leading men, and a male vocal quartet. All ages from teens to 70s. The audition will include dance, singing and cold reading from the script. Please wear appropriate attire for the dance portion. For the vocal portion we would like you to prepare sheet music for two contrasting 16 bar vocal pieces. There will be piano accompaniment. Production dates are February 8 - 24.
Music by Neil Sedaka. Book by Ben H. Winters and Erik Jackson. Lyrics by Howard Greenfield and Philip Cody. Directed by Nick Henn. Musical direction by Mario Davis. Choreography by Danielle Horak. Presented by special arrangement with Theatrical Rights Worldwide (www.theatricalrights.com).
Sun/Mon, January 13th and 14th, 7:00pm: Love, Sex, and the IRS
Tax season is upon us, and if you're looking for ways to score a refund, here's an example of what NOT to do. Jon Trachtman and Leslie Arthur are out of work musicians who room together in New York City. To save money, Jon has been filing tax returns listing the pair as a married. The day of reckoning comes when the Internal Revenue Service informs the "couple" they're going to be investigated by a Mr. Spinner. Leslie masquerades as a housewife, aided by Jon's fiancee, Kate. Complicating matters further Leslie and Kate are having an affair behind Jon's back, Jon's mother drops in unexpectedly to meet her son's fiancee, and Leslie's ex-girlfriend shows up demanding to know why Leslie has changed and won't see her anymore…
We need 5 men and 3 women of all ages. Production dates are March 8 – 24. By Billy Van Zandt and Jane Millmore. Directed by Troy Jones. Presented by special arrangement with Samuel French (www.samuelfrench.com).
