El Dorado Musical Theatre will audition for the Encore production, Grease, Monday, November 16th at 3:30 p.m. Auditions will be held at EDMT’s rehearsal facility, located in the El Dorado Hills Business Park at 5011 Golden Foothill Parkway, Suite #4.
Grease is the all-American musical, based on the sub-cultures of high school life in the 1950’s. The year is 1959 and Rydell High School’s rebellious, happy, thrill-loving students start a new year. Sweet Sandy Dumbrowski transfers to Rydell High, where she quickly wins the affection of Danny Zuko. When Danny refuses to conform to Sandy’s wholesome good girl image, Sandy dons tight jeans, changes to a bouffant hairdo and is determined to win back her one true love.
The story, written by Jim Jacobs and Warren Casey, is the classic “boy meets/loses/regains” girl tale along with social conflict thrown in for interest. Come join Danny, Sandy, the Burger Palace Boys and the Pink Ladies as they take us back to a simpler time in life.
Featuring songs such as “Summer Nights,” “Greased Lightning” and “We Go Together,” this production will be filled with high energy, slicked back hair, and a dance contest that will test your hand jive. Performances are scheduled for February 5-21, 2010, at the Oak Ridge High School Theater in El Dorado Hills.
All who audition should dress to dance and be prepared to sing a song of up to one minute in length to either a background CD, a capella or with the piano accompanist.
