NADMCS – 9 TO 5 THE MUSICAL – parts and rehearsal information
Well, what an afternoon of auditions. We were very pleased with the high standard, and particularly as so many of you had learnt your audition pieces so well. We were delighted that we could cast every role and the cast list is at the bottom of this e-mail. I know that some people who did very good auditions might be disappointed but we can only cast one person in each role, and we have to take into account suitability of people for roles etc etc and I know that we have an excellent cast right down to the cameo roles. However some other information first :
REHEARSALS FOR THE ENTIRE COMPANY – These will start this Wednesday June 7th at 7.30 sharp. EVERYONE who wishes to be in the show should attend. There will then be a 2 week pause while John deals with the Toads musical. We will then revert to our usual MONDAY nights for music and there will be a rehearsal on MONDAY JUNE 26TH for entire company music . During that week John will also call a principals only music rehearsal – day to be advised.
During the two weeks commencing July 3rd I will block the dialogue (as John is on holiday) and I will issue the schedule in next week or so. Following on from this we will fall into normal rehearsals but John will need to carry on music on Monday nights until he has taught this for the company. I will aim to issue the full schedule for the entire period to the show in a few weeks time. I am aiming to keep it less intensive as last year for everyone.
I am anxious that we have enough men for this show as there are some good company numbers. I need to formulate the list of people in the ensemble asap, so please attend on Wednesday and if you cannot come on that night please let me know you wish to be involved in this fun show. Please do your best to round up every interested person. If you know of any men who are new to us , let me know as they can always do a new members audition and we can hook them in !!!
