Seeking Teenagers for "Flight of the Lawnchair Man" Musical Show
Audition for "Flight of the Lawnchair Man" Show. Looking for boys & girls ages 17+. Please see the details below About the project: The title is not a metaphor. Jerry Gorman is a regular guy from New Jersey who just wants to fly. The neighbors think he’s nuts. His mother disapproves. Big Jack and Blaire scoff. But Gracie believes in him. When Jerry soars to 16,000 feet with nothing but a lawnchair and helium balloons, this funny tuneful musical reminds us that the air is free and dreams can come true if only you believe in yourself. Additional info: For ages 17+ a parent or legal guardian would need to have some involvement, and should accompany the minor at auditions. Prepare at least 32 measures of one musical theatre standard to sing fearlessly. An accompanist will be provided, or you can bring a track to play via Bluetooth. Acappella auditions are discouraged. In addition, everyone will be asked to read scenes. Sides will be made available online in early January. There may also be a short minimal dance audition. Please bring a resume and a list of all conflicts through April 7, 2024. Performance dates: March 22 – April 7, 2024; Friday – Sunday. Rehearsals will generally be Monday through Thursday evenings, subject to cast schedules. See the attachments for the video audition. If interested, please
