SARATOGA SPRINGS — Home Made Theater will host open auditions for their December production of She Loves Me, book by Joe Masteroff, lyrics by Sheldon Harnick, and music by Jerry Bock. The production will be directed and choreographed by Johnny Martinez, with musical direction by Richard Cherry.
The auditions will be held on Tuesday, Oct. 11 and Wednesday, Oct. 12 starting at 6:30 at Home Made Theater’s headquarters at the Wilton Mall (near JC Penney).
The main cast consists of five men and two women ranging in ages from 20 to 65. There will also be an ensemble consisting of both men and women of various ages.
The original Broadway production opened in 1963 and there have been several revivals produced for the stage, as well as being the basis for the film You’ve Got Mail.
For the audition: prepare 16-32 bars of a song similar in style to the show that showcases your voice. Bring your own sheet music in your key; a pianist will be provided. No a cappella singing. Wear or bring comfortable clothes and shoes that allow for movement for a brief choreography audition. Bring a current photo (cannot be returned) and a resume. Be prepared to list all potential conflicts from the first rehearsal through closing (with the exception of Tech Week and performances, conflicts can be worked around if known about in advance).
Rehearsals start Oct. 23 and performances are in December. For more information, go to: www.homemadetheater.org.
