Published on: August 13, 2008Open auditions are being held for LSC-Kingwood's production of "Drood" on Wednesday, August 26 and Thursday, August 27 from 6-9 p.m. in the SFA Performing Arts Theatre.
This Rupert Holmes' interactive musical comedy, "The Mystery of Edwin Drood" is based on Charles Dickens' unfinished mystery novel of the same name. The show tells the story of upstanding young Drood, who mysteriously disappears - but whodunit?
This highly-energetic production calls for 16 speaking/singing roles and an additional chorus - literally a "cast of thousands". Ages of characters range from young adult (high school) through senior citizens.
"We are excited to be offering this Tony-award winning musical to the Kingwood community," said LSC-Kingwood Director of Theatre Eric Skiles. "Scenic designs and costumes are already being planned, the "Orchestra" is ready, and we are turning the theatre into an English Music Hall from the 1890's. We want all those talented Kingwood actors/singers out there to join in on the fun!"
Those interested need to prepare a vocal selection of their choice - please bring sheet music of your selection to the audition. Readings from the script will also occur at the audition.
Performance dates are Oct. 2-4 at 7:30 p.m.; Oct. 5 at 2 p.m.; and Oct. 9-11 at 7:30 p.m. All performances will be held in the SFA Performing Arts Theatre. Ticket prices are $15 for general admission, $12 for seniors (55+), and $5 for students. For more information or to purchase a ticket, call 281-312-1532.
