Auditions for Ardmore Little Theatre's summer musical “Crazy for You” will be Monday and Tuesday, June 4 & 5, 2018 at 7:00pm. Please enter by the stage door on the North side of the building. Due to the large size of the scripts, we will not be handing out copies before auditions. Volunteers are always welcome to work on sets, costumes, props, box office and other backstage areas.  Everyone is encouraged to participate.  You do not have to be a member of ALT to be involved in the production.


Audition Process:

Vocal Audition:  For the vocal auditions see the YouTube link below and the time references by character for what you should learn for auditions. You do not have to memorize the parts, but you should practice so you are familiar with them.


          For Polly:  Be prepared to sing “Someone to Watch Over Me” at the 40:55 point in the video,

                              and “Embraceable You” at 1:01:05.


          For Bobby: Be prepared to sing “They Can't Take That Away From Me” at the 1:56:30 point in the video.


         All other Parts: Anyone trying out for other parts or chorus can sing any Broadway tune, but it is preferred that you bring music to sing with the pianist rather than CD or digital music.





















Choreography Audition: Everyone should be prepared to learn a short bit of choreography at auditions. Those auditioning for dancers/Follies Girls should bring jazz and tap shoes, preferably taps with heels or character shoes.  Wear clothes that you can move freely in but still allow the choreographer to see lines. Be prepared to do time steps.


          Dell McLain will be directing this musical for Ardmore Little Theatre. Dell has previously directed for ALT “Les Miserables” and “Oklahoma!”.  Dr. David Hobbs will be the vocal/orchestra director for this show. Dr. Hobbs has been on stage and vocal director for many shows for ALT. Most recently, he has done “Oklahoma!”, “Little Shop of Horrors” and “Fiddler on the Roof”. Shannon Crites will be choreographer for this show.   Shannon has previously choreographed “West Side Story”, “Grease” and “Chicago”   Performances for “Crazy for You” will be July 19-22 and 26-28, 2018 at the Goddard Center. All performances are at 7:00pm, except for the Sunday matinee at 2:30pm. Set strike will be Sunday, July 29th and attendance is mandatory for all actors.


SYNOPSIS:  A zany rich-boy-meets-hometown-girl romantic comedy, CRAZY FOR YOU® tells the story of young New York banker Bobby Child, who is sent to Deadrock, Nevada, to foreclose on a rundown theatre. In Deadrock, Bobby falls for spunky Polly Baker, the theater owner's daughter. But Polly takes an instant dislike to the city slicker, so Bobby vows – through cunning, razzmatazz, and a hilarious case of mistaken identity – to win Polly's heart and save the theatre. Memorable Gershwin tunes from the score include “I Got Rhythm,” “Naughty Baby,” “They Can't Take That Away from Me,” “Embraceable You,” “But Not for Me,” “Nice Work if You Can Get It,” and “Someone to Watch Over Me.”  No other show better conjures up the timeless glamour and romance of Broadway in its heyday than this outrageously entertaining musical with hilarious dialogue (liberally splashed with slapstick and farce) along with high-energy, colorful song and dance numbers to provide a truly uplifting night out for audiences of all ages.
