PARIS — “Crazy For You,” with music and lyrics by George Gershwin and Ira Gershwin, will be presented in late March as the next Oxford Hills school/community Broadway musical.

The play tells the story of Bobby Childs, a well-off playboy who only wants to sing and dance through such numbers as “I Got Rhythm,” “They Can’t Take That Away from Me” and “Embraceable You.” This is, of course, to the chagrin of his mother and fiancée. Hilarity ensues courtesy of mistaken identities, jealous rivalries and big show production numbers.

“Crazy For You,” the production group’s 19th show, will be staged March 26-28.

Auditions will be held from 6:30 to 9 p.m. on Monday and Tuesday, Jan. 4-5, at the OHCHS auditorium. The cast includes 11 principal characters and a 30-member chorus of showgirls and cowboys. The show’s director is Jane Whitney Riseman; Dennis Boyd Jr. is music director.

People auditioning should be prepared to sing a song from the show and to learn part of a dance number. Bring music or prepared accompaniment for the musical audition or your own prepared dance piece. Music may be picked up in the music department at OHCHS.

Proceeds from the show will go to a scholarship fund for a senior working in or with the show who will pursue post-high school education in the arts, music, dance or theater. In addition, a junior actively involved with the show will receive a scholarship next year at graduation.
