Albany, Ga. –Artistic Director Mark Costello has announced that Theatre Albany will conduct auditions for the musical “The All Night Strut” Monday and Tuesday, June 27 and 28 at 7 p.m. at the theatre located at 514 Pine Avenue.
A classy, sassy musical celebration of the 1930s and ’40s, “The All Night Strut!” struts its stuff in a two act bonanza of the way things were during the depression, World War II and the post war boom. From the funky jive of Harlem to the sophisticated elegance of El Morocco and the romance of the Stage Door Canteen, this is an evening filled with jazz, blues, bebop and classic songs. An international hit, “The All Night Strut!” has delighted audiences old and young with its sublime music and sheer energy. Famous songs include “Minnie the Moocher”, “In the Mood”, “Fascinating Rhythm”, “Hit That Jive, Jack” and “As Time Goes By”.
Director Mark Costello along with Kevin Blaise and Casey Perkins are looking to cast 2 men and 2 women who can sing four-part harmony, similar to the sound of the Manhattan Transfer. Persons interested in auditioning should prepare a song to sing; something that shows off the voice, and bring either the sheet music or a CD. An accompanist will be provided. Rehearsals are set to begin in July with performances scheduled for August 12 thru 28. For further information, call the theatre at (229) 439-7193.
