Cedar Rapids – Theatre Cedar Rapids will hold auditions for its summer musical Guys and Dolls Sunday and Monday, May 15 and 16, at 7 p.m. each night.
Auditions will be held in TCR’s home in the Iowa Theater, 102 Third St. SE. Auditioners will be asked to sing, dance and read from the script. Casey Prince is directing the show, with music direction by Damon Cole and choreography by Michael Harrington.
Performing July 8-30, Guys and Dolls is a classic Broadway musical about gamblers and the women who love them. Performers ages 16 and over are encouraged to audition for the wide variety of roles. Though “Guys and Dolls” is a musical, there are many opportunities for unique character actors regardless of singing and dance ability. Dancers with tap experience are preferred for the Hot Box Girls.
For specific information on available roles or general audition requirements, call (319) 366-8591 or visit www.theatrecr.org. Scripts are available for three-day checkout on a first-come, first-serve basis from the Theatre Cedar Rapids box office, 102 Third St. SE.
Performers who’d like the chance to ask questions and brush up on their dance skills can attend a special workshop with the choreographer of Guys and Dolls, Michael Harrington, at 3 p.m. for women and 4:30 p.m. for men. Attendance is free, but by reservation only and is limited to the first 20 for each workshop. To reserve a space, email Erica Hoye at Erica@theatrecr.org.
