THE WILD PARTY Auditions

November 28, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Who?: Footlite Musicals announces open auditions for Andrew Lippa’s THE WILD PARTY.

What?: Andrew Lippa’s THE WILD PARTY follows vaudeville performers and lovers Queenie and Burrs when they decide to throw a party-to-end-all-parties in their 1920s Manhattan apartment. After the colorful arrival of a slew of guest living life on the edge, Queenie’s wandering eyes land on a striking man named Black. As the decadence is reaching a climax, so is Burss’s jealousy, which erupts and sends him into a violent rage. Gun in hand and inhibitions abandoned, Burrs turns on Queenie and Black. The gun gets fired, but who’s been shot?

Where: Footlite Musicals, 1847 North Alabama Street, Indianapolis, IN 46202

When: Sunday, November 28th at 6pm; Monday, November 29th at 7pm; Invite Only callbacks on Wednesday, December 1st

Details: THE WILD PARTY staff is looking for a racially diverse cast of actors, singers, and dancers. Please come prepared to sing 16-32 bars from a song that shows off your vocal talents, with sheet music in the appropriate key. A pianist will be provided. A cappella singing and recorded accompaniments will not be permitted. Everyone will be lead through a dance audition lead by our choreographer. Due to the subject matter and intimacy of the show, actors under 18 years of age will not be considered for this production.
