Vero Beach Theatre Guild is holding open auditions for Andrew Lloyd Webber’s “Cats." Directed by Michael Naffziger, “Cats” is scheduled to be performed July 10-28 at the Vero Beach Theatre Guild.
The Tony Award musical first performed in Broadway in 1981 is a sung-through musical based on T. S. Eliot’s “Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats.” The story involves a tribe of cats called the Jellicles who compete with music and dance to ascend to the Heaviside Layer to come back to a new life.
Casting needs include 20 Guest Spot/Lead roles and 6-8 person ensemble. Ages are between 16 and 80. Bring a resume and/or headshot. Prepare a 1-2 minute portion of a song of your choice. Also bring a device with an AUX port, or your own sheet music. Dress comfortably for basic choreography.
Auditions will be held: Friday May 3 at 7 pm; Saturday May 4 at 10 am; and Sunday May 5 at 2 pm. Auditions will take place at the Indian River Charter High School Black Box Theatre, 6055 College Lane, Vero Beach.
