Talent needed for original production

January 9, 2013
The Pearl Theater is seeking community actors and singers for an exciting musical theater production to be staged the first two weekends in March.

The original musical theater production, directed by Vicki Blake, will feature songs from Broadway shows and films around the theme of celebrating being alive on planet Earth. The songs by the chorus will be interlaced with scenes, vignettes and poetry presented by an acting company. Artwork and photography will enhance the production with images projected on the Pearl Theater’s fabulous big screen.

Adult singers, high school and up, are invited to join in the chorus, which will rehearse at the Pearl Theater, 7160 Ash Street, Bonners Ferry, on Mondays starting January 14 at 6:30 p.m. for women and at 7:30 p.m. for men.

Auditions are not required for the Bonners Ferry Community Choir, which will be the chorus for the show. Interested singers should just come to rehearsal on Monday, January 14. Songs will include a wide variety of styles from shows as diverse as "Oklahoma" and "Spring Awakening" to "Jungle Book," "Pippin" and "Carousel."

For the adult vocal soloists and actors, who do not need to sing, auditions will be held at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, January 17, also at the Pearl Theater.

Singers should bring a prepared piece to be sung a cappella, with recorded accompaniment on an ipod or CD, or with your own accompanist. Actors will be given material to read.

Prepared material for actors (up to 2-3 minutes total) is welcome but not required for the audition. Rehearsals for the actors chosen will be held on Thursday evenings. Vocal soloists chosen will schedule rehearsal times with director Victoria Blake Thompson and accompanist Barb Nelson. Chorus members are welcome to audition for acting or vocal solo roles as well.

If interested actors or singers cannot make the audition time or for more information please call the Children’s Choir director at (208) 304-0866.

A bass guitarist, Powerpoint presenter and scenery artists are also sought and should call (208) 304-0866 or email
