30th Anniversary Audition Information

Phoenix Productions is thrilled to announce auditions for Show Much MorePhoenix’s 30th Anniversary Gala with a performance to be held at the Count Basie Theater on Saturday, February 24th, 2018 at 8pm.  Produced by Brian LaRue, Written and Directed by James Grausam, and Conducted by Joe Wajda, this special anniversary celebration will feature two acts of Broadway’s favorite songs, scenes, and dances.

Act One celebrates Phoenix history with 30 songs from 30 shows from the last 30 years.  A series of fast-paced medleys will highlight 30 years of telling stories on stage from Superstar (the premiere 1988 Phoenix production) to Seussical (our latest hit).

Act Two features 30 more songs as a musical mash-up of shows Phoenix has yet to produce from classics to current Broadway smashes.

We’ve assembled a spectacular creative team with music direction by Phoenix favorites Beth Moore, Andrew Mackirowski, Amy Fredericks, and Bob Sammond.  Our choreography team is slated to include Kelly Gemellaro, Rachel Wasser, Alex Acevedo, Tara Eccles, Jessica O’Brien, and Nicole Ceballos.  Don’t miss out on an opportunity to be a part of this amazing one-night event with such a talented production team!

Open auditions for anyone who has ever participated in a previous Phoenix production will be held at the Phoenix Performing Arts Center on Saturday, January 6th from 11am-4pm.  The production team has asked that each auditionee prepare 32 bars of a Broadway-style song that best showcases performance skills.  Callbacks will be held Thursday, January 11th from 8pm-10pm and Saturday, January 13th from 11am-4pmRehearsals begin Saturday, January 20th and run for 4 weeks.

The production team wants to include as many Phoenix alumnae of all ages in as many numbers as possible based on rehearsal availability. Casting will be based on “Show Much More” than audition skills – so those who are enthusiastic and motivated with lots of free time will be considered for more numbers, and those with limited availability can lend their time and talents to just one or two numbers.  Details will be available during the audition open house.
