Avon Players Community Theatre announces open auditions for its first production of the 2012-2013 season, Bye Bye Birdie.
This family musical is the story of rock and roll singer
Conrad Birdie, an Elvis Presley type, who, before joining the army, will bid one lucky teenage girl good-bye with an all-American kiss on national television. The lucky girl: Kim MacAfee of Sweet Apple, Ohio. Everyone in town is turned upside down including Hugo who has recently gotten “pinned” to Kim. There are great roles available for teens and adults.
Auditions will be held on July 9th and 10th at 7:00 PM at the Avon Players Theatre. Registration begins at 6:30. Actors should come prepared to sing and read dialogue. Some actors may be called upon to work with the choreographer. Come dressed in loose-fitting clothing. Audition songs will
