Event Details

We are excited to meet everyone from all over the East Valley signed up to audition for our upcoming production of 42nd Street!!

Below are some of the rules and expectations of this group, as it is run a little different than our other JR and Kid “non-audition” productions. NOTE: Since we only rehearse once a week on Saturdays (sectional rehearsal Tuesday evening, if necessary), all rehearsals are MANDATORY and we do not accept any conflict schedules. However, we do have some flexibility for Tuesday evenings’ sectionals, if needed.

AUDITIONS 5-minute slot. (By appt. only)
Monday, January 8th 6:00pm-9:00pm
Tuesday, January 9th 6:00pm-9:00pm
Wednesday, January 10th 6:00pm-9:00pm

MANDATORY CALLBACKS: 
Thursday, January 11th 6:00pm-8:00pm Note: An email will be sent to those who receive a callback late Wednesday evening, January 10th after all auditions are completed. Just because you don’t receive a callback does not mean you are not cast in the show! All Call Backs will be taught a choreographed routine and perform a cold reading.

Tuesdays 6-8:30pm sectionals, if necessary

Saturday, January 13th Please be prepared to read through the entire show and/or sing your songs the best that you can during this time.

 

CAST OF CHARACTERS:

MAGGIE JONES is a co-author of Pretty Lady. She is a smart, confident businesswoman and has no problem standing up to the great Julian Marsh. Maggie is friends with all the Chorus Girls and takes Peggy under her wing. Cast a great actress who can sing and easily handle Maggie’s poise and self-assurance.

 

BERT BARRY is a co-author of Pretty Lady along with Maggie Jones, though Maggie is definitely in charge. Bert has every confidence in Julian’s ability to direct the show, although he tends to panic immediately whenever problems arise. Bert often sings duets with Maggie, so cast an actor who pairs well with her and has a good sense of comedy.

 

ANDY LEE is the dance director. He is extremely professional and wants the best work out of everyone, especially if it impresses Julian. Andy occasionally sings in a group with other characters, but it is more important that he be a good dancer and actor.

 

GLADYSWINNIEPHYLLISANNIE, and LORRAINE are cast members in Pretty Lady. They befriend Peggy and encourage her to audition for the show. Gladys, Winnie, and Phyllis are sweet girls who want to make sure the show happens no matter what. They do not have solos but are featured in songs with the other girls, so they should be good singers and great dancers. Annie is spunky, upbeat, and teaches Peggy the first tap combination. She should be a great singer, since she has a few featured solos. Lorraine is the sassy and straightforward one in the group. She is featured in songs with the other Chorus Girls and should be a good singer and dancer with great comic timing.

 

MAC is the no-nonsense stage manager for Pretty Lady. Mac doesn’t have to sing or dance, but he should be a good actor who embodies down-to-earth professionalism.

 

PEGGY SAWYER is a young Broadway hopeful determined to get into the chorus of Pretty Lady. Peggy has tons of talent but no professional experience and finds herself in a number of awkward situations as the story progresses. Cast a fantastic dancer and singer who can portray a starry-eyed dreamer with a heart of gold.

 

BILLY LAWLOR is one of Broadway’s best juveniles and Pretty Lady’s leading man. Cast a confident performer full of charm who can sing, dance, act, and deliver hilarious one-liners. Billy should pair well with Peggy.

 

JULIAN MARSH is a veteran Broadway director determined to take Pretty Lady to the Great White Way. He is secure in his reputation as the best director on Broadway and isn’t intimidated by anyone—including his famous leading lady, Dorothy Brock. Cast a strong actor and singer who easily commands the stage.

 

DOROTHY BROCK is an older Broadway star. Onstage, she is every inch the high-powered diva, but offstage, she feels trapped by wealthy patron Abner Dillon and pines for a life with her longtime secret love, Pat Denning. Cast an excellent singer and a great actress who can ooze confidence onstage but show just as much vulnerability about Dorothy’s personal life. Dorothy does not need to be a dancer.

 

ABNER DILLON, an automobile tycoon, is Dorothy Brock’s wealthy patron and the main financial backer behind Pretty Lady. Abner is devoted to Dorothy, but he is not the sharpest tool in the shed. He is a powerful man accustomed to getting what he wants and won’t take no for an answer. Cast a performer who is comfortable making bold choices onstage.

 

PAT DENNING is Dorothy’s former vaudeville partner. Though he has kept their love secret for years, he is committed to Dorothy and willing to do anything in order to make their relationship work. He’s kind, levelheaded, practical, and a bit of an “opposites attract” love interest for Dorothy. Pat doesn’t sing or dance in the show, but he should be a good actor and pair well with Dorothy.

 

The ensemble CHORUS GIRLS , FRANKIE, the WAITERFIRST THUGSECOND THUGYOUNG WOMANBOYANOTHER BOYA GIRLANOTHER GIRL, and the MONEY and the DOCTOR.

Please note: This is definitely not for beginners or individuals with no experience, however we do have non-audition musicals at www.BakerPerformingArts.com

Thank you!
Mr. Baker, Producing Artistic Director
