New Bern Civic Theatre is looking for actors, singers and dancers for:
La Cage Aux Folles(Musical)
Book by Harvey Fierstein, Music and Lyric by Jerry Herman
Based on the play by Jean Poiret
Directed by Don Elmore
Produced by Karen Pierson
Musical Direction by Brandon Banks
La Cage Aux Folles remains one of the all–time biggest hits, adding a new twist to theatrical comedy. After 20 years of unwedded bliss Georges and Albin, two men partnered for better or worse, get in a tight squeeze when George's son (fathered during a one–night fling) announces his impending marriage to the daughter of a bigoted, right–wing politician. Further complicating the situation is the "family business" — Albin and Georges run a drag nightclub in St. Tropez, where Albin is the "star" performer 'Zaza'. Georges reluctantly agrees to masquerade as "normal" when he meets the family of the bride-to-be. But you cannot hide from the truth and the results are hilarious.
The New Bern Civic Theatre is pleased to announce the auditions for the November 2014 production of La Cage Aux Folles
Directed by Don Elmore, Produced by Karen Pierson, Musical Direction by Brandon Banks and Choreography by Derek Jordan.
Wednesday, July 2nd at 7:00 p.m.
