A Little Night Music
BoHo Theatre is seeking performers for our summer 2018 production of A Little Night Music. BoHo Theatre strongly promotes diversity in casting and encourages all ethnicities and sexual identities to audition.
Set in 1900 Sweden, A Little Night Music explores the tangled web of affairs centered around actress, Desirée Armfeldt, and the men who love her: a lawyer by the name of Fredrik Egerman and the Count Carl-Magnus Malcom. When the traveling actress performs in Fredrik's town, the estranged lovers' passion rekindles. This strikes a flurry of jealousy and suspicion between Desirée; Fredrik; Fredrick's wife, Anne; Desirée's current lover, the Count; and the Count's wife, Charlotte. Both men – as well as their jealous wives – agree to join Desirée and her family for a weekend in the country at Desirée's mother's estate. With everyone in one place, infinite possibilities of new romances and second chances bring endless surprises.
Please prepare one LEGIT 32 bar cut, and bring a second in case the artistic team needs to hear more. An accompanist will be provided. Bring music in your key and one copy of your headshot/resume.
If you play an instrument, please sign up for a time on January 14th, if possible, and bring your instrument to the audition. A piano will be provided for those who play the piano.
