SCC Center Stage Theatre to hold open auditions for ‘A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum’ May 21-23

April 30, 2013

St. Charles Community College’s Center Stage Theatre is holding open auditions for the upcoming production of “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum,” a musical by Stephen Sondheim.

Director Lynne Snyder will hold vocal and acting auditions at 7 p.m. Tuesday-Wednesday, May 21-22. Dance auditions will be held at 6 p.m. Thursday, May 23.

All auditions will be held in the theater of the Donald D. Shook Fine Arts Building on the SCC campus in Cottleville. Center Stage Theatre invites SCC students and community residents to audition.

There are parts for eight women and 10 men. Those auditioning must be prepared to sing 16 bars of a traditional Broadway-style show tune (no pop music). Sheet music is allowed. The auditions will also consist of readings from the script, which is on reserve in the SCC library. Monologues are encouraged, but not required. 

Set in ancient Rome, this comedy reigns supreme when a thoroughly disarming slave named Pseudolous schemes to gain his freedom by helping his master’s son get the girl he desires. What ensues is a riot of mistaken identities, plot twists, coincidences and slapstick comic routines, which blend classic Roman comedy with the energy of classic vaudeville.

The performances will be held in the theater of the Fine Arts Building Tuesday-Sunday, July 23-28.
