Audition

It’s 1955, and into a square little town in a square little state rides a guitar-playing young man who changes everything and everyone he meets. Loosely based on Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night, this hip-swiveling, lip-curling musical fantasy will have you jumpin’ out of your blue suede shoes with such classics as “Heartbreak Hotel,” “Hound Dog,” “Jailhouse Rock,” and “Don’t Be Cruel.”

We will be holding auditions for our spring production of All Shook Up! On December 21st and 22nd at 7:00 pm.  The show runs March 17 – 26, 2023.  Rehearsals will begin in January. Auditions are open to everyone 16 and older.

Director: Jamie Bierchen

Musical Director: Nathan Daugherty

Choreographer: Stefanie Lehmann

Auditioners should bring sheet music for their musical audition, unless the song selection is from All Shook Up!.  Auditioners should also wear comfortable clothes and shoes, that are easy to move in.
