The Haywood Arts Regional Theatre will hold auditions for its July production of the hit Broadway musical “La Cage Aux Folles” at 6:30 p.m., May 7 and 8 at the HART Theater in Waynesville.
The production is being directed by Steve Lloyd and opens on July 6 for a four-week run. It features a large cast with acting, singing and dancing roles for men and women in leading roles and the chorus.
The show is based on a French film of the same name, which was later remade in America as “The Bird Cage” staring Robin Williams and Nathan Lane as a mature gay couple who run a nightclub. The son they have raised has become engaged to the daughter of a conservative politician and the comedy develops from there.
Actors auditioning as professionals should come with a headshot and resume, as well as a prepared audition piece, sheet music and a prepared song. Community theater actors should come with sheet music and a prepared song but that is not required. All actors will be given the opportunity to read from the script. Anyone interested in working backstage on the production is also encouraged to come by during auditions to sign up.
