WHAT TO PREP FOR AUDITION: Please prepare 16-32 bars of a musical theatre song in the same style as the show. Bring your own sheet music for our accompanist or be prepared to play a karaoke track from your phone as you sing. At your audition you may be asked to do a ‘cold-read’ from the script, run scenes with others, learn a short group dance combination, etc. Please wear comfortable, close-toed shoes that you can move in.

VIRTUAL AUDITION OPTION: If you are unable to make it to the auditions, you can video record yourself singing your audition song and send it via email to: charlie@yadkinarts.org before 10pm on August 7th.

AUDITION PACKET: An audition packet with more details will be linked to this page soon!

*** REHEARSAL SCHEDULE *** : This show will have an adaptive rehearsal schedule that works better for adults. We will rehearse on select Saturdays from August to October, then begin regular weeknight rehearsals in November. Our goal is to only have a month’s worth of regular nightly rehearsals during the work week, especially since a lot of our actors will be involved with other events around the holidays.

QUESTIONS?: Send them to charlie@yadkinarts.org

SHOW DESCRIPTION: 

An intimate and touching show, featuring music by Jerry Bock and Sheldon Harnick (Fiddler on the Roof) and book by Joe Masteroff (Cabaret), She Loves Me was nominated for five Tony Awards in 1964. The 1993 Broadway revival won the Olivier Award for Best Musical Revival, the Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Revival of a Musical and the 1994 Critics Circle Award for Best Musical, while the 2016 Broadway Revival snagged the Tony Award for Best Scenic Design (beating Hamilton!). Considered by many to be the most charming musical ever written, She Loves Me is a warm romantic comedy with an endearing innocence and a touch of old-world elegance. The Mikos Lazlos play Parfuemerie, on which it is based, has inspired many adaptations, including the beloved film You’ve Got Mail starring Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks.

CONT.
Set in a 1930s European perfumery, we meet shop clerks Amalia and Georg, who, more often than not, don’t see eye to eye. After both respond to a “lonely hearts advertisement” in the newspaper, they now live for the love letters that they exchange, but the identity of their admirers remains unknown. Join Amalia and Georg to discover the identity of their true loves… and all the twists and turns along the way!
