SCCP Announce Auditions For ‘The Wild Party’

Seneca Community Players is throwing a “wild, wild party” this summer and you’re invited.Adapted from a book-length poem written in and about the Roaring Twenties, Andrew Lippa’s “The Wild Party” tells the story of one wild evening in the Manhattan apartment shared by Queenie and Burrs, a vaudeville dancer and a vaudeville clown. In a relationship marked by vicious behavior and recklessness (mirroring the time in which they live), they decide to throw a party to end all parties.An award-winning score provides excitement and drive for this tale of passions out of control. Capturing the sound of a bygone era with a nod to the present one, Lippa makes us realize that moral decadence is not only limited to our past.Starting at 7:00 p.m., “Wild Party” auditions will be held at the Smith Opera House on May 22 and 24. Interested individuals should come ready to act, sing and dance but should not prepare a song – music from the show will be provided. Participants should also bring a list of potential rehearsal conflict dates. Parts are available for 9 women and 11 men.Pam Rapoza (“Footloose,” “Forever Plaid”) directs and choreographs this misbehaving musical at the Delavan Theatre on the New York Chiropractic College campus in Seneca Falls, August 11, 12, 13, 18, 19 and 20, 2006. Annie Bachman is the musical director.The Smith Opera House is located at 82 Seneca Street in Geneva.
