Public Auditions for the Classic Musical West Side Story

Michigan Tech’s “Tech Theatre Company” will hold public auditions for the classic musical West Side Story, next week, on Monday, January 16 – Wednesday, January 18. West Side Story changed the very nature of American Musical Theatre. With music by Leonard Bernstein and lyrics by a young Stephen Sondheim, the play was grounded in a distinctively “modern” sound.   Arthur Laurents’ book is inspired by Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, where two young lovers cross the boundaries of an urban battlefield, questioning the cultural isolation that will allow them to live happily in a special place.   A place where everyone can grow beyond the confines of hate, poverty, and violence. Parts are available for singers and dancers, and a small number of non-singing roles.  The first night, Monday, auditions will be from 7:00 – 10:00 pm  (SINGING/DANCING/CHORUS ROLES); on Tuesday, January 17, 7:00 – 10:00 pm (NON-SINGING ROLE AUDITIONS ONLY); and on Wednesday, January 18, 7:00 – 10:00 pm(SINGING/DANCING/CHORUS ROLES).  Auditions will be held the Rozsa Center, in room 120 (Choir Room). To register, please visit the WEBSITE to fill out the AUDITION REGISTRATION FORM.

To be assigned an audition slot, you must fill out a registration form!  Fill out the Audition Form immediately.  Slots are limited so please help us by registering in advance.

What you may or may not know is that we consider Michigan Tech and Finlandia University part of our community and we do assist you in your time of need if you become a victim of a fire or an accident victim. We need your support by way of buying a ticket to the game and coming out to the event. There are many excellent prizes that we are raffling off, such as a $1000.00, $750.00 and a $500.o0 cash prizes as well as a  sky box at the game which will be raffled off a week prior to the game with food and beverages included. A rifle and shotgun will also be raffled off along with other great prizes.

Help us make this a success and have some fun before Winter Carnival. Hope to see you there.
