Received directly from April Daniels at Playhouse Smithville:
Auditions on January 8 for
A Cole Porter Valentine
at Playhouse Smithville
Playhouse Smithville sends out an audition call for the next show, A Cole Porter Valentine. This show will be the first musical revue and the first dinner theatre at the Playhouse. The cast size of the show is yet to be determined, as john daniels, jr. (sic) the Artistic Director and playwright will be fashioning the show around Cole Porter’s timeless music and the singers, dancers, actors, and first time performers chosen for the cast. No experience is necessary. The Playhouse is looking for performers 14 years old and up. Bring energy, excitement and charm to the auditions, because Cole Porter’s music has energy, excitement and charm.
Cole Porter was an enormously prolific American composer and songwriter spanning five decades from 1916 to 1958. Porter wrote one thousand songs, twenty-six Broadway Musicals and songs for eleven films. The list of his songs includes, “Night and Day,” “Delovely,” “Begin the Beguine,” “Let’s Misbehave,” and “I’ve Got You Under My Skin.” Two of Porter’s musicals, Anything Goes and Kiss Me Kate, are still very popular and are frequently produced today.
A Cole Porter Valentine will feature more than twenty Cole Porter tunes as well as comedy, atmosphere and dinner. Smithville's own Comfort Café caters the affair to include a dessert to die for. It promises to be a great date.
Auditions for A Cole Porter Valentine will held at Playhouse Smithville, 110 Main St. Smithville, Texas on Saturday January 8 at 2:00 PM. For more information visit www.playhousesmithville.com or call (512) 360-7397.
