The Theatre Group at SBCC will hold open auditions for the summer musical, HIGH SOCIETY Music and Lyrics by Cole Porter, Book by Arthur Kopit, Tuesday, May 2 by appointment in the Garvin Theatre.
Imagine that Philip Barry had written “The Philadelphia Story,” his classic 1939 romantic comedy, not as a play but a musical, with Cole Porter as his collaborator, and you have … HIGH SOCIETY! It’s not only the show’s title but the show’s first song, in which the Lord Family’s amazing staff sets the scene (the Lord family lives on a waterfront estate in Oyster Bay now, not Philadelphia). Come join the Lords for a weekend of fun and games!
Directed by R. Michael Gros, with musical direction by David Potter, HIGH SOCIETY will run July 12-29, 2017 in the Garvin Theatre. Roles are available for 4 women, including one young teen, and 5 men, with a lively dancing chorus of 8 house staff.
May 2 will be the general singing auditions from 6-10pm, callbacks will May 9. Rehearsals begin May 22. Call Christina at 805-965-0581 ext. 2376 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for appointments and information. www.theatregroupsbcc.com
