Leawood Stage Company to Hold Auditions for "A Little Night Music"
Leawood Stage Company will hold auditions for A Little Night Music on Saturday, June 28th and Sunday, June 29th from 1:00 – 3:00 pm each day in the Maple Room on the lower level of Leawood City Hall. Auditioners should enter through the north doors of the building.
Call backs will be held by invitation only on Saturday morning, July 12th in the same location.
Be prepared to sing 32 measures from any musical with live accompaniment. There will be an accompanist provided so all those who audition are requested to bring sheet music in your key. Bring a photo and resume if available. No appointment time is necessary.
LSC is pleased to welcome Tim Braselton in his directing debut. Tim has previously been involved with productions as music director and accompanist for show such as "Titanic: the Musical" and "Songs for a New World" as well as this summer's production of "Hello, Dolly".
A Little Night Music with music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim is full of hilariously witty and moving moments of adoration, regret and desire. This dramatic musical celebration of love is perfect to showcase highly-trained singers with its harmonically-advanced score and masterful orchestrations.
Set in 1900 Sweden, A Little Night Music explores the tangled web of affairs centered around actress Desirée Armfeldt and the men who love her. Both men, as well as their jealous wives, agree to join Desirée and her family for a weekend in the country at Desirée's mother's estate. With everyone in one place, infinite possibilities of new romances and second chances bring endless surprises.
