Who's asking: Richard Bostwick, Hallowell, ME
Yesterday's auditions for "Lucky Stiff," Gaslight Theater's summer musical, went well -- but the gorgeous weather made for a very small turnout. We're casting at least five men and five women, ages 20-50, and yesterday only seven women and one man came to audition.
So if you're in central Maine and have been fantasizing about stardom, this could be your chance. "Lucky Stiff," by Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty, is a romantic comedy set mostly in Monte Carlo, featuring a shoe salesman, a protector of lost dogs, and someone's dead uncle in a wheelchair. Lots of singing, lots of laughs, not much dancing. Deb Howard is directing, Brad Howard is the musical director. Performances are the last two weekends in June (June 21-23 and June 28-30).
Auditions continue tonight and Thursday night at 6:30, at Hallowell City Hall. E-mail me if you need more information.
And yes, I know this is a lame post after taking the last couple of days off, but I'm producing this show, so it's theoretically up to me to get people to show up for auditions. Consider this post synergy... normal service will resume tomorrow.
