Showtimers is excited to announce auditions for our upcoming summer musical, Baby byRichard Maltby & David Shire (book by Sybille Pearson.) Originally produced in 1982 and updated in 2004, Baby tells the intertwining stories of 3 couples, all at different stages of life, who find the prospect of parenthood compelling them to re-examine their relationships. Through a mix of humorous, insightful, heartwarming and heart-breaking songs, the show explores such themes as the relevance of marriage, the importance of gender roles, and even whether love itself is really a “forever” emotion.
We will be casting 6 principal roles (see descriptions below) as well as an ensemble of 8-12. All body types, races, genders and abilities are enthusiastically welcomed. Must be age 16 or older. Please prepare 16-32 bars (approximately 60 seconds) of a song that showcases your voice. A song in a similar style to the show is recommended. If you are interested in a particular role, a selection that demonstrates the appropriate range required is also advantageous. PLEASE BRING SHEET MUSIC. An amazing accompanist will be provided. A cappella and self-accompanied auditions are strongly discouraged.
There will also be cold-readings from the script.
While the show does have some minor dance elements, there will not be a dance audition.
