Home > Current Buzz > Auditions for 'Fame' Jan. 22-23 at UW-Sheboygan

January 4, 2007

University Theatre will hold auditions for "Fame the Musical" at 7 p.m.on Jan. 22 and 23, in the University of Wisconsin-Sheboygan's Fine Arts Building. The production will kick off the second half of University Theatre's 2006-07 "Season of Musicals."

Set in New York's legendary High School for the Performing Arts, "Fame the Musical" follows an eager group of talented students from their first audition to graduation and the roller coaster of ambition, excitement and hard work that follows. Inspired by the Academy Award-winning movie and TV series, "Fame the Musical" follows the students as they fall in love, face their fears and risk it all in their quest for fame

Since its launch in 1995, "Fame the Musical" has established itself as one of the country's most successful theatrical productions. The show recently celebrated its 10th anniversary, marking a decade during which four million people have enjoyed the inspiring story of the kids from New York's School for the Performing Arts.

Roles for more than 20 "students" are available, while additional actors are needed who play musical instruments (piano, violin, drums, trumpet or sax). Some of "Fame's" characters specialize in dance, while others focus on singing and acting. Four roles also are available for "teachers" at the high school.

Auditions are open to community residents as a wide range of performers are needed. All those auditioning are asked to prepare a one-minute song and bring sheet music.

Rehearsals begin on Wednesday, Jan. 24, and will be held Monday through Friday, 6:30 to 10:30 p.m., up to the start of the show. One or two conflicts are permitted during the rehearsal period. Those auditioning should bring a complete list of conflicts. Performances of "Fame the Musical" will be held March 2-4 and 8-11 in the Fine Arts Theatre.

Charles Krebs, UW-Sheboygan communication and theater arts assistant professor, will direct the production. Jessica Mueller of Jessica's School of Dance in Sheboygan will serve as choreographer, while David Brady of Noteworthy Productions in Milwaukee will be music director.
