Tuesday, Jan. 11, for classic musical

Auditions Set For "Oklahoma!" on Stage

The Western Nevada Musical Theatre Company announces open auditions for Rodgers and Hammerstein's Oklahoma!, Tuesday, Jan. 11, 6 p.m., in Sarah Winnemucca Hall, Aspen Building, at Western Nevada College Carson City campus. The production will cast six principal roles, multiple additional speaking parts, a dance troupe and a chorus. Dance troupe auditions are scheduled for 7 p.m., Tuesday, Jan. 11. 

All auditioners should come prepared to sing a song that is less than one minute long. They should bring a taped accompaniment or provide the accompanist with a musical score - a capella auditions are not advised. Solo auditions are recommended. Callbacks for some performers will follow on the evening of Thursday, Jan. 13. 

Everyone accepted in the cast must register to participate in the productions. All credit students will receive a scholarship to defray half their fee for this course.

The story of a handsome cowboy winning the heart of a headstrong farm girl in Oklahoma territory at the turn of the 20th Century has entranced theatre-goers for generations. Rodgers and Hammerstein's award-winning score includes "I'm Just a Girl Who Cain't Say No," "People Will Say We're In Love," and "Oh, What a Beautiful Morning." The classic musical will play weekends at the Carson City Community Center May 6-15.

This is the last 2011 audition that will be open to the entire community. The audition for the fall Andrew Lloyd Webber mega-production is restricted by the licensing agency to continuing students only.
