A Taffeta Christmas will be performed November 30 thru December 15. The Taffetas is a 1950’s era female quartet that pays tribute to the sounds of The McGuire Sisters, The Fontane Sisters and The Chordettes. This delightful Christmas edition of the show includes holiday favorites, as well as, hit songs from previous Taffetas productions. Those auditioning should prepare a song to sing and bring sheet music in the proper key. The revue will be directed by Linda Abbott.
The Philadelphia Story by Philip Barry follows the turn of events as a wealthy Philadelphia family prepares for the second nuptials of their daughter, Tracy Lord. Whether the wedding will go off without a hitch depends on many things, not the least of which is the bride’s own ill-timed journey of self-discovery. The production will be performed October 5 – 24 and features roles for 7 men, 20 – 75 years in age and 5 woman, 20 – 65 years in age. Auditions will consist of readings from the script. The play will be directed by Dennis Murphy.
The Glenmore Playhouse’s doors will open 30 minutes before each audition time. Those auditioning are encouraged to bring a photo and a resume.
Additionally, The Drama Workshop will hold auditions for Love, Loss and What I Wore at 7 p.m. on August 19 and 20. Love, Loss and What I Wore was written by Nora and Delia Ephron and is based on a book of the same name by IIene Beckerman. The play is a series of monologues that uses a women’s wardrobe as a time capsule of her life. Director Rose Vanden Eynden is seeking an all-female ranging in age from 20–75.
