Auditions for "Grey Gardens" at the Morrisson Theatre
The Douglas Morrisson Theatre is happy to announce auditions for "Grey Gardens" by Doug Wright, Scott Frankel, and Michael Korie. This is the 2006 Broadway musical based on the 1975 documentary film of the same name by the Maysles brothers, which tells the story of the Beales—mother Edith (Big Edie) and daughter Edie (Little Edie)—who were aunt and cousin, respectively, to Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis.
The auditions will be on Saturday, May 5, 2012, from 12:00noon to 4:00pm, and on Sunday, May 6, 2012, from 6:00pm to 9:00pm.
The performance dates are September 6 thru September 30, 2012.
The auditions are by appointment only. Please schedule your audition by contacting director Michael Ryken at email@example.com.
Please prepare one Broadway song, not from the show, scored in your key. An accompanist will be provided. Actresses auditioning for Edith/Little Edie are recommended to prepare two songs. Callbacks will be held on Monday, May 14 at 7:00pm. All performers need to be strong solo singers as well as capable of maintaining complex harmonies in an ensemble.
