Auditions for The Music Man! 

December 18th and 19th at 7:00PM

Southwest Playhouse announces auditions for The Music Man!

Auditions for Meredith Wilson's six-time, Tony Award-winning musical comedy "The Music Man" are coming soon! Auditions will be Monday and Tuesday, December 18th and 19th, 2017 at 7 p.m. at Southwest Playhouse in Clinton, Oklahoma located at 6th and Nowahy. Production dates are February 23, 24, 25 and March 1, 2, 3, 4, 2018.  

*This award-winning, critically acclaimed Broadway classic is an all-American institution, thanks to is quirky characters, charmingly predictable dramatic situations and one-of-a-kind, nostalgic score of rousing marches, barbershop quartets and sentimental ballads, which have become popular standards. The cast features a soaring soprano ingenue, parts for young performers and children, and one of the musical theatre's treasures, a tour de force leading role for a charismatic actor. The Music Man follows fast-talking traveling salesman, Harold Hill, as he cons the people of River City, Iowa, into buying instruments and uniforms for a boys' band that he vows to organize – this, despite the fact that he doesn't know a trombone from a treble clef. His plans to skip town with the cash are foiled when he falls for Marian, the librarian, who transforms him into a respectable citizen by curtain's fall. (*Check out for complete casting information.)

Julie K. Barnett, Director, asks that auditioners come prepared to learn and sing a song which will be sung individually. This portion of the audition will be led by Kim Duerksen, the show's Music Director. Instrumentalists and marching band members are welcome as well.. 

Cris Hart, Choreographer, will teach a dance segment. Cold reads will be conducted by Barnett. 

No prepared songs or monologues are needed. Actors are encouraged to bring their calendars to check conflicts with scheduled rehearsals. No children under the age of 5 are needed.

A large cast is sought, so please be sure and take this opportunity to audition for a classic masterpiece that is to be remembered for years to come!
