image00231.jpg

OK Broads, heres the opportunity you’ve been waiting for!!!!!

amphitheaterAuditions for Taffeta Memories, produced by the Village of Colonie, to be held March 28 and 29. This production will be performed outdoors at the beautiful Frank A. Leak Amphitheater for the Arts, June 15-18.

Directed by Michael Mensching.

Cast Needed: 4 Women who can act, sing harmony, and be able to move and do physical comedy well.

Four female singers age 50-65 (must have the ability todo/learn some simple dancing and movement, and hold harmony without difficulty). We are also looking for all ethnicities and body types. You must be comfortable with your body type as you will be compared to the way you looked 40-50 years ago and you may be doing physical comedy.

This is a musical comedy featuring The Taffetas– Kaye, Peggy, Cheryl, and Donna – four singing sisters from Muncie, Indiana who in the 1950’s were the talk of the town. Now almost 50 years later, they are putting on a reunion show. Take a walk down memory lane with them in this nostalgic musical.

Please bring sheet music for a song that you love to sing. A song from a musical comedy would be great, a song from the era of the music of the 50s or early 60s even better NOT from Taffeta Memories. Bring 2 or 3 possibilities. Please limit your selection to approx. 2-3 minutes (a partial song is fine).An accompanist will be provided. No a capella singing.

Please do not audition if you are not age appropriate. No offense but veteran actresses have spent the last 10 or 20 years losing parts to the ingenues. Its their turn now!!! Yours will come later for this one.
