Auditions for 45 Seconds From Broadway
AUDITIONS: January 21st at 7 pm at Slidell Little Theatre.
From America’s master of Contemporary Broadway Comedy,Neil Simon, here is another revealing comedy behind the scenes in the entertainment world, this time near the heart of the theatre district. 45 Seconds from Broadway takes place in the legendary “Polish Tea Room” on New York’s 47th Street. Here Broadway theatre personalities washed-up and on-the-rise, gather to schmooz even as they lose. This touching valentine to New York offers great acting roles as Neil Simon continues his exploration of the foibles and funny in the human comedy.
Auditions at Slidell Little Theatre on January 21st at 7 p.m. Auditions will be a cold read. Those auditioning for Mickey need to tell a joke. The Show will run March 9 – 25th.

Creepy, kooky, and a little bit spooky, The Addams Family brings to life every father’s nightmare. Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, has grown up and fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family – a man her parents have never met. And if that weren’t upsetting enough, Wednesday confides in her father and begs him not to tell her mother. Now, Gomez Addams must do something he’s never done before – keep a secret from his beloved wife, Morticia. Everything will change for the whole family on the fateful night they host a dinner for Wednesday’s ‘normal’ boyfriend and his parents.
For all roles you will need prepare a 32 bar cut of the sheet music provided in the link below. Please prepare the sheet music associated with the character you are auditioning for.

|MALE ROLESGomez Addams (18+; tenor – Bb to G#)
Gomez takes great pride in his family and revels in all it means to be an “Addams.” He struggles with having to keep his daughter’s secret from his wife, whom he adores more than death. Smart, comedic actor with tenor vocals. Husband to Morticia, if indeed they are married at all… a crafty schemer, but also a jolly man in his own way… though sometimes misguided… sentimental and often puckish – optimistic, he has full enthusiasm for his dreadful plots… is sometimes seen in a rather formal dressing gown.
