How do we beat the winter blues? We put on a big musical comedy; a show with a lot of acting parts, some dancing for those who like that sort of thing and plenty of singing for everyone. We try to pick a show with a big cast that offers something for everyone - from the seasoned performer looking for a challenging lead role to the novice who just wants to experience the thrill of live theatre with a small ensemble part. The rehearsals are a lot of fun, and it always results in a crowd-pleasing show for RCCT audiences to enjoy.
The 2015 season is no exception. RCCT is pleased to have acquired the rights to perform a new musical, "The Singin' Cowboy." This fresh approach to an old tale offers foot-stompin', shoot-em-up saloon and trail songs as well as tender ballads. "The Singin' Cowboy" follows the adventures of the Singin' Cowboy as he tames the fierce Tumbleweed Tammy and converts her gang of outlaws to the ways of goodness. Hilarity ensues along with some simple hoe-down style dancing. We want you to be a part of it!
Auditions take place at the Rogers City Theater Tuesday and Wednesday, December 16 and 17 at 7 p.m. Rehearsals start January 3, 2015 and will be held every Saturday from 1 to 4 p.m. and every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 7 to 10 p.m. Performace dates are March 13 through 22; Friday and Saturday nights at 7:30 p.m., and Sunday matinees at 2 p.m.
Everyone who wants to be in this show will have a part. And remember, there are roles beside those on stage that are important. RCCT always needs people to help with lights, sound, set building, props, costumes, and all the other things that are essential to put on the quality shows RCCT's audiences have come to expect.
So, come to auditions and your name on the list of happy volunteers. Call director, Karl W. Heidemann at 989-734-7368 for more details, or just show up. Expect to read from the script. We'll teach you a song snippet and a basic "dance." If it is wet outside, please bring dry closed toed shoes to wear on the stage.
We invite you to beat the doldrums this winter: audition!
