Audition Information for Flippin’ Broadway, II
What is it?: “Flippin’ Broadway, II” is a Broadway musical review with live accompaniment and singing where the participants sing songs that they would not normally have the opportunity to sing because they aren’t the right age, gender, ethnicity, etc. For example, Carol Channing would not normally be cast to play Dorothy in “The Wiz”, and might reasonably argue that she would never get the chance to sing “Home” in such a production. Thus, she may choose to audition with that song for “Flippin’ Broadway II”.
Auditions are open to soloists, duets, trios or other sized groups. All members of groups must audition at the same time.
When: Auditions: Thursday, June 29, 6-8:30 p.m. and Saturday, July 1, 1-4 p.m.
Where: DreamWrights Center for Community Arts
Who: Open to everyone.
Why: Benefit for DreamWrights Center for Community Arts
How: Anyone may audition for “Flippin’ Broadway II” on the above listed dates and times; first come, first served basis.
