WNMTC to Audition Spring Shows

The Western Nevada Musical Theatre Company will audition both spring shows - "Annie Get Your Gun" and "Damn Yankees" - 6 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 13, in Sarah Winnemucca Hall at Western Nevada College's Carson City campus.

Peter Stone's revival version of Irving Berlin's "Annie Get Your Gun" will play at the Carson City Community Center Feb. 8-17. Rehearsals begin November 26, with a break for the holidays December 15 through January 2. The show, which tells the love story of Annie Oakley and Frank Butler, includes a huge opening production number of "There's No Business Like Show Business," as well as such well-loved classics as "Lost in His Arms," "Anything You Can Do, I Can Do Better," "The Sun In The Morning and The Moon At Night," and "They Say That Falling In Love Is Wonderful."

"Damn Yankees" will play at the Carson City Community Center May 9-18. Rehearsals begin Thursday, Feb. 21. This comedy tells of a disgruntled baseball fan who nearly sells his soul to join the Washington Senators and beat the Yankees, but leaves it all to reclaim what is important in his life. Featured songs include "You Gotta Have Heart," "Whatever Lola Wants," and "Shoeless Joe From Hannibal, Mo."
Both productions call for multiple featured leads, dance troupes and choruses.
Stephanie Arrigotti will produce and direct both shows, and Gina Kaskie-Davis will be choreographer. The Western Nevada Musical Theatre Company is a critically acclaimed regional theater company operated through the Performing Arts Program at WNC, drawing tour buses from all around Nevada and California. Shows play in a 700-seat theater and are accompanied by a live orchestra.

Everyone accepted in either cast must register to participate in the productions. All credit students will receive a scholarship to defray half their tuition. This course applies to an Associate of Arts degree with an emphasis in Musical Theatre at WNC.
