Black Swamp Players To Hold Auditions For The Music Man

Sunday, November 18 and Monday, November 19. Audition times for both dates will run from 6:30 until 9 PM. …………

(Bowling Green)—The Black Swamp Players will hold auditions for the second production of its fifty-first season, The Music Man, during the week of November 18.

Open auditions for the production will be held on the following dates: Sunday, November 18 and Monday, November 19. Audition times for both dates will run from 6:30 until 9 PM.

The script calls for a large cast of both children and adults of various ages. All auditions will be held at the First United Methodist Church on East Wooster Street in Bowling Green. Those who want to audition should prepare 16 bars of a Broadway showtune, and should bring copies of their music to the audition.

Additionally, individuals who audition will be asked to cold read from the script and learn some dance/movement sequences.

All who are interested in auditioning should dress comfortably for the audition.

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. Hill’s 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.

Written by Meredith Willson and Franklin Lacey, The Music Man has been entertaining audiences since 1957, when it premiered on Broadway. The musical earned eight Tony-award nominations in 1958 and went on to win six Tonys, including nods for Best Musical, Best Performance by a Leading Actor, and Best Performance by a Leading Actress.

The Black Swamp Players production of The Music Man will be directed by Amy Spaulding-Heuring.

The Music Man will open on Friday, February 15 at 7:30 PM. Additional performance dates include: Saturday, February 16 at 7:30 PM; Sunday, February 17 at 2:00 PM; Friday, February 22 at 7:30 PM; Saturday, February 23 at 7:30 PM; and Sunday, February 24 at 2:00 PM. All performances will take place at the First United Methodist Church, Bowling Green.

Tickets for all performances are $15/adults, $12/seniors and students. All tickets can be purchased on the organization’s website and at the door on the day of the performance.

The Music Man is the second of three productions to be mounted by The Black Swamp Players for its 2018-2019 season. The Players will close their 51st season with the world premiere of an original play by local F. Scott Regan, titled Peanuts and Crackerjacks. Regan’s play will be performed in April/May 2019.

Founded in 1968, Black Swamp Players has been providing community theatre to the Bowling Green and surrounding areas for the past fifty years.

The show has 216 possible endings.

The production will be directed by Melissa Shaffer.

Clue: The Musical will open on Friday, November 9 at 7:30 PM. Additional performance dates include: Saturday, November 10 at 7:30 PM; Friday, November 16 at 7:30 PM; Saturday, November 17 at 7:30 PM; Sunday, November 11 and 18 at 2:00 PM.
