RED BANK, NJ - Phoenix Productions, the Red Bank-based community theatre organization, has announced that it will hold open auditions for its November production of Spamalot on September 13, 15, and 16 at the Phoenix Rehearsal Center.
All roles are open for this revival of the award-winning Broadway musical which will open at the Count Basie Theatre in Red Bank in mid-November. The show will be directed by Gary Shaffer with musical direction by Bob Sammond and choreography by James Steele.
Spamalot is an irreverently hysterical musical comedy "lovingly ripped off from" the 1975 film Monty Python and the Holy Grail, with many roles for men from 30 to 50 years of age. The director is looking for people with excellent comic timing who can move well, with the ability to do accents a plus. Most of the roles are character voices and the ability to be funny supersedes vocal and dance skills.
Those auditioning are asked to prepare 16 to 32 bars of an uptempo song, preferably a comic number. Bring your own sheet music. An accompanist will be provided.
Those auditioning should also be prepared for a dance audition which will range from light movement exercise to strong tap, depending on role. Gymnastic ability is a plus.
All auditions and rehearsals will be held at the Phoenix Rehearsal Center, 111 Monmouth Street at the corner of Pearl Street and right next door to the Count Basie Theatre.
