The hills are alive with the sound of auditions
WHATEVER you do, don’t sing Do-Re-Mi. That’s the advice from Judi Williams of the Coffs Harbour Musical Comedy Company.
At the auditions for the upcoming local production of the Sound of Music, this director is pleading that you pick any other song.
“I cast this show a few years back and had to hear Do Re Mi more than 70 times so I’ve banned it from auditions,” Judi Williams said with a smile.
“I’m expecting a big turn out for the auditions, the Sound of Music is classical theatre and always popular with performers and audiences.”
The show is predominately about singing and drama so you won’t have to polish your dance moves for this one.
“We will be needing a cast of about 50 as the roles for the children will be double cast.
“As always we are looking for men, you can never get enough men in the theatre and I will be on the look out for plenty of “penguins”, ladies who will be wearing the black and white habits of nuns for the ensemble.”
