Des Moines Playhouse Auditions: Singin’ in the Rain
January 24, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Cast Needs: TBD
Performance Dates: March 25 – April 10, 2022
All auditions are open to the public; no one is pre-cast. The Playhouse encourages performers of any race, ethnicity, gender, age, or other personal differentiations to auditions for its plays. Where specific casting demands are not indicated by the playwright, any performer is encouraged to audition for any role. Those auditioning must bring a prepared solo; an accompanist will be provided as well as the ability to play an accompaniment track from an iPhone or similar device.
Description: Silent movies are out. “Talkies” are in! Unfortunately for famed movie star Don Lockwood, his leading lady’s comically harsh and squeaky voice is ill-suited for the switch. When their next film is converted into a talking picture, the studio must bring in aspiring actress Kathy Selden to voice all of its female star’s speaking and singing parts. Sparks fly between Kathy and Don in this charming love story that will give everyone the same glorious feeling they get when singing in the rain.
