Runway Theatre Company is looking to cast all Principals, Chorus and Dancers for their next production, the classic American musical THE MUSIC MAN. By turns wicked, funny, warm, romantic and touching, THE MUSIC MAN. is family entertainment at its very best. Meredith Willson’s six-time, Tony Award winning musical comedy has been entertaining audiences since 1957 and is a family-friendly story to be shared with every generation.
The show will take place at Eastwood Park Theatre, Giffnock, from Tuesday 13 - Saturday 18 May 2019, evenings at 7.30pm with a Saturday Matinee at 2.30pm. We are looking for male and female adult cast of all ages from 16 years and over to be part of this exciting venture. If interested please attend an Information Session and Company Audition on Thursday 24 January at 7.30pm (Registration from 7pm).
At the Information Session details will be given about the audition process, including all principal roles, membership, ticket arrangements and rehearsal dates. After the break we will hold our Company Auditions for those who want to go forward to become part of the show. There is no need to prepare anything for the Company Audition as a short singing and movement piece will be taught. It will be a fun evening, so even if you are not sure, or have never performed in a show before, come along and find out more. Runway has a reputation of being a very friendly Club who produce high quality shows and pantomimes, and is always open to welcome new members.
As Director of THE MUSIC MAN, I look forward to working with the full cast on this show, which has not been seen in the Glasgow area for many years. I am delighted to have David Dunlop on board as our experienced Musical Director, and the talented Greg Robertson as our Choreographer. There are great, tuneful songs and dances in THE MUSIC MAN and plenty of work to keep everyone busy.
We are also looking for a limited number of children aged 6-15 years to to take part in THE MUSIC MAN. Children’s Auditions will take place on Saturday 2 February from 12 -2pm.
Children and their parents only need to attend this session but their parents are more than welcome to come to the session on Thursday 24th January. There is nothing to prepare in advance and the audition process is very informal. Please note this is an amateur club and there is no fee paid to any performers including children.
Please note that we are only looking for a very limited number of children - mostly boys as the story is about setting up a boys band.
All Auditions will take place at Clincarthill Parish Church Hall, 1220 Cathcart Road, Glasgow G42 9EU (enter by Cathcart Road door).
No fees are payable for our auditions, and you are always guaranteed a welcome cup of tea/coffee at the break. Please wear comfortable clothes for some fun movement.
Tickets for THE MUSIC MAN are now available from our Booking Manager Susan B Russell on 07801 048527, via our website runwaytheatre.co.uk and from Eastwood Park Theatre.
Full information will be given on the day, but if you have a particular query please message us at firstname.lastname@example.org .
Hope to see you there!
