The Theatre Company at Fort Lee in association with the Lee Playhouse is seeking 20-25 women and men ages 17-65 for a variety of principal, secondary, and ensemble roles for the upcoming Production of ALL SHOOK UP. ALL SHOOK UP is the story of Natalie, a small town girl with big dreams, from somewhere in the middle of a square state, and Chad, the motorcycle-riding, guitar-strumming ex convict who turns the town upside down and takes us for a fun-filled, rollicking ride. Loosely based on Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night, this entertaining and inventive American Jukebox Musical features songs from the Elvis Presley Songbook including “Jailhouse Rock,” “ Can’t Help Falling in Love,” “Hound Dog,” and “Blue Suede Shoes.”
Auditions for Director, Frank Foster; Musical Director, Alisa Erway; and Choreographer, Kate Belleman will take place on Sunday, February 18, from 4-6 PM at the Virginia War Memorial (621 S Belvidere St, Richmond, VA) and at 7 PM Monday and Tuesday, February 19-20, at the Lee Playhouse (4300 Mahone Ave, Fort Lee, VA 23801). Those auditioning should prepare a song, bring sheet music in the correct key (accompanist provided), and be prepared for movement. Readings will be from the script.
No performers paid. Rehearsal start date is to be announced for a May 4-27 run. For additional information, check the Theater Company at Fort Lee’s Facebook page or call the box office at 804-734-6629.
