Sierra Stages to hold open auditions for ‘Cabaret’

Submitted to Prospector

Sierra Stages is pleased to announce open auditions for its summer 2019 production of “Cabaret” playing from July 11 through Aug. 3, 2019 at the historic Nevada Theatre in Nevada City. The director is Scott Gilbert, choreographer is Brian Arsenault, and music director is Ken Getz.

In a Berlin nightclub, as the 1920’s draw to a close, a garish Master of Ceremonies welcomes the audience and assures them they will forget all their troubles at the Cabaret. With the Emcee’s bawdy songs as wry commentary, “Cabaret” explores the dark, heady and tumultuous life of Berlin’s natives and expatriates as Germany slowly yields to the emerging Third Reich. Cliff, a young American writer newly arrived in Berlin, is immediately taken by English singer Sally Bowles. Meanwhile, Fräulein Schneider, proprietor of Cliff and Sally’s boarding house, tentatively begins a romance with Herr Schultz, a mild-mannered fruit seller who happens to be Jewish. Musical numbers include “Willkommen,” “Cabaret,” “Don’t Tell Mama” and “Two Ladies.”

There are two opportunities to audition: Saturday, Jan. 12 and Sunday, Jan. 13 from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on each date. Auditions are at the Sierra Stages Rehearsal Studio, 828 West Main Street in Grass Valley. (Directions are on the Sierra Stages website.) All roles are open. All roles are unpaid.
