CGOA Stages Announces Auditions for The Fantasticks Musical
It seems like a very long time ago since CGOA held auditions, but it’s time to call all actors for an upcoming, video-only production of the musical “The Fantasticks”, under the direction of Corin Parker. Making its first Gorge appearance in over twenty years, “The Fantasticks” is loosely based on the 1894 play, The Romancers (les Romanesques) by Edmond Rostand. It is a lyrical, funny and romantic musical about a boy, a girl, and their two parents who trick their children into falling in love by pretending to feud. The narrator, El Gallo, asks the audience to use their imagination and follow him into a world of moonlight and magic.
Rehearsals will be held over Zoom and in person, following strict health and safety protocols. The Fantasticks calls for eight actors, ranging in age from 16 to older adults and there are several non-singing roles. Rehearsals will be in February and March, and the show will be recorded for release on YouTube in April. Auditions will be via submitted video.
For complete audition information, please go to gorgeorchestra.org/fantasticks or send an email to email@example.com. Deadline for audition video submissions is January 28, 2021.
