Flying Anvil Theatre is looking for a few outrageous and courageous actor/singers who can wrestle a song to the mat and make it holler uncle.

Auditions for The Great American Trailer Park Musical – a show the NY Sun called “South Park meets Desperate Housewives” will be 1-6 p.m. Saturday, June 3, and 1-5 p.m. Sunday, June 4, at Flying Anvil Theatre, 1300 Rocky Hill Rd.

“We’re looking for a diverse cast who aren’t afraid to have fun on stage and with the audience,” director Jayne Morgan says. “There are great roles available, including a thrillingly trashy trio of trailer park matrons who act as a kind of Greek chorus.”

The show features rock, pop, country, disco and rockabilly songs and requires five women and two men, ranging in ages from 17 to 55. It will be musical directed by Terry Silver Alford who was musical director for Violet, among others for Clarence Brown Theatre and choreographed by long-time local performer and director, Dana Wham.

Rehearsals start June 27 and the show opens a 5-week run on July 21. All roles are paid.
Auditioners should prepare 16 bars of an up-tempo contemporary song and a one-minute comic monologue. To sign up for an audition time, email Jayne Morgan at [email protected] or call the theatre at 357-1309.
