The Bluffdale Arts Advisory Board announces auditions for the Broadway musical “Guys And Dolls.” Audition dates are Friday, April 24 from 6-9 p.m. and Saturday, April 25 9 a.m. to noon at the home of the director, Laura Garner, located at 1967 West 13930 South in Bluffdale. Auditions are for ages 14 to young adult.
Considered by many to be the perfect musical comedy, “Guys and Dolls” ran for 1,200 performances after it opened on Broadway in 1950. It received nearly unanimous positive reviews from critics and won a bevy of awards, including Tony Awards, Drama Desks, and Oliviers. Specific characters include: Arvide Abernathy, Benny Southstree, Big Jule, Harry The Horse, Lt. Brannigan, Miss Adelaide, Nathan Detroit, Nicely-Nicely Johnson, Sarah Brown, Sky Masterson and numerous singers and dancers—those who tap and those who don’t. Come prepared to sing and show your best tap dance moves. An accompanist will be provided, and all who audition will be cast.
Performance dates will be August 6,7 and 8, 2015. For additional information, please call 801-254-7728. This project is supported by Bluffdale City, Rocky Mountain Power and ZAP (Zoo, Arts and Parks funding).
