Phils to Hold Auditions for The Music Man on Jan. 19-20
Auditions for the Jesuit Philelectic Society’s spring musical, The Music Man, will be held Monday, Jan. 19 and Tuesday, Jan. 20, 5:30 – 8:30 p.m. in the Auditorium.
The Music Man is a musical with book, music, and lyrics by Meredith Willson, based on a story by Willson and Franklin Lacey. Mrs. Kate Arthurs-Goldberg will direct.
The show features a large ensemble cast with many feature roles. Open to students in eighth grade and up. (Younger students/”future Phils” should not attend this audition. Parents, please email the director for further information.)
Everyone must be prepared to sing and dance.
- Singers should prepare a full song, preferably from the show (but not required). We plan to have an accompanist, but all should be prepared to sing a cappella. Auditioners interested only in chorus may sing with a group.
- Wear clothing you can move in and bring dance shoes.
For further information please contact Mrs. Arthurs-Goldberg in the Phil’s office or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
