AUBURN — Auditions for Community Little Theatre’s third production of its 75th season, “9 to 5, the Musical” written by Dolly Parton (book by Patricia Resnick), will be held at 1 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 4, and at 7 p.m. Monday, Jan. 5.
Auditions will be held at CLT’s home at Great Falls Performing Arts Center, 30 Academy Street. Show dates are over two weekends, March 13-22.
The musical is based on the seminal 1980 hit movie. Set in the late 1970s, this hilarious story of friendship and revenge in the Rolodex era is outrageous, thought-provoking, and even a little romantic. It will be directed by Paul G. Caron. Rebecca Caron is the musical director, and Adam P. Blais is the choreographer
Pushed to the boiling point, three female co-workers concoct a plan to get even with the sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot they call their boss. In a hilarious turn of events, Violet, Judy and Doralee live out their wildest fantasy — giving their boss the boot. While Hart remains “otherwise engaged,” the women give their workplace a dream makeover, taking control of the company that had always kept them down.
A choice of a musical selection from “9 to 5” is preferable for the audition. Music from the show will be available at the audition or select and prepare a song from another Broadway show. Sheet music must be provided to the musical director during your audition. There will be no a capella singing for this audition.
For the dance audition, participants are asked to wear appropriate clothing and footwear (women should wear heels). “We need to see what everyone looks like — so no baggy clothing,” said Caron.
