AUBURN — The first show of L/A Community Little Theatre’s 79th season is Meredith Willson’s classic hit musical “The Music Man.” There are great roles for men, women and children of all ages in this show, which opens at CLT on Friday, Oct. 19, and runs for two full weekends through Sunday, Oct. 28.

Open auditions for the show will be held at the Great Falls Performing Arts Center, 30 Academy St. (CLT’s home) on Sunday and Monday, Aug. 19 and 20 at 7 p.m. for anyone age 13 and older. Auditions for child roles (ages 8 to 12) will only be held on Sunday, Aug. 19, at 5 p.m.

The show is being directed by Nakesha “Kay” Warren. Musical director is Paul G. Caron and the show will be choreographed by Jake Boyce.

For vocal auditions, participants are asked to prepare two different audition pieces (16 to 20 bars each). Copies of the music will be available for anyone singing a song from the show. Those singing pieces from a different show are asked to provide sheet music for Dr. Caron to play. No a cappella auditions will be allowed.

Those who will be auditioning for the leading roles of Harold Hill or Marian must be familiar with “Ya Got Trouble” (Harold) and “Till There Was You” (Marian). For choreography auditions, bring comfortable clothes, dance shoes, sneakers, character shoes or jazz shoes to dance in. There will be an opportunity to change between vocal and choreography auditions.
