SAVANNAH — Savannah’s Cultural Arts Theatre will be holding auditions for it’s spring production, “Pippin,” March 9-10 at 6:30 p.m. in the Black Box at S.P.A.C.E., located at 9 W. Henry St.
Based on a book by Roger O. Hirson, with music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz, the musical follows Pippin, the son of Charlemagne, the fabled King of France. The young prince longs to discover the secret of true happiness and find himself. A chorus of medieval masquers leads him through his quest to find fulfillment in war, pleasure and power, until finally he must chose between an ordinary life or an extraordinary death.
Originally staged on Broadway in 1972, this show features an energetic musical score, with pop songs and ballads that became so popular they were later recorded by such prominent artists as the Supremes and Michael Jackson.
Directed by Bridget Tunstall, the script calls for a flexible cast of males and females ages 14-70. Those auditioning will be asked to sing 16 bars and perform a 1-minute comedic monologue. The script also calls for one boy age 11-13. Young men reading for this roll do not need to perform a monologue and are invited to audition from 6-6:30 p.m. Callbacks and dance auditions will be held March 11 at 6 p.m. Production volunteers are also needed and are encouraged to register at the auditions.
The show will be performed in the Black Box at S.P.A.C.E. May 1-3, 8-10 and 15-17.
