WWCA is excited to announce auditions for our 2020 Summer Musical
Pump Boys and Dinettes
If you are interested in auditioning, please email an audition video or any further questions to the Director Laura Lingle at email@example.com
Seeking 6 multi-talented stage musicians for this 1982 Tony-nominated musical about friendship and family, love and loss, car repair and coffee. This show is highlighted by the fact that the cast is the band, the band is the cast. We strongly encourage you to read about the show and listen to the original Broadway cast recording.
Traditionally, the show consists of the 4 men who work at the garage, on rhythm guitar, lead guitar, piano, and bass (the Pump Boys), and 2 sisters who own and run the Double Cupp diner, on vocals, percussion, and tap dancing (the Dinettes). All parts are open to everyone.
Please prepare 1 to 2 minutes of audition material as follows:
Pump Boys, show your proficiency on one or more of the following while singing at the same time (it’s what you’ll be doing in the show):
Piano / Keyboard
Dinettes, after demonstrating your strong vocal abilities (a capella is okay), you will need to tap dance (or demonstrate aptitude to learn tap quickly), and be able to keep time with basic percussion, such as tambourine, sticks, or a spoon on a pot (provided, or feel free to bring your own).
Cold readings of short monologues from the script will follow the music audition.
Callbacks will be scheduled as needed.
You must be available for all 15 performances: Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays, August 7 through Sept 6, plus the preview performance, Thursday, August 6.
Rehearsals will begin in April, approximately 3 to 4 times a week, mostly Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays, and others depending on need, particularly as opening draws closer. Tech week (the week prior to opening) will mostly likely be every day.
Need an alternate audition time (before the audition date, please) or have any questions or concerns? Please contact the director, Laura Lingle (firstname.lastname@example.org). Thank you so much for your interest!
