Music Circus auditions!

Please sir, be anti-child labor. And no, I don't mean labor that is opposed to children

Think you got what it takes to be a London fishmonger, a playactin’ cowpoke, or a hanger-on to a Knight of the Round Table? Well, your chance to find out may be coming! California Musical Theatre (one of our gracious sponsors) hosts auditions for the 2011 season of Music Circus, featuring such shows as Oliver!, Annie Get Your Gun, and Camelot.

Sacramento auditions for non-Equity singers and actors (ages 16 and above) will be held on Tuesday and Wednesday, March 1-2, beginning at 6:00 p.m. at the Wells Fargo Pavilion, 1419 H Street, Sacramento by appointment only. Appointments may be scheduled by calling the audition hotline at (916) 446-5880, ext. 137, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, Feb. 23-35, 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. Calls will only be accepted during these hours (no messages please).

In addition, there are separate dance auditions and auditions for members of Actors’ Equity, but if you’re in one of those groups you are not getting your audition notices from this blog.

Music Circus director nominated for Tony

Marcia Milgrom Dodge

Marcia Milgrom Dodge, who directed “Guys and Dolls” at Music Circus last summer, was nominated today for a Tony Award for her directing of the revival of “Ragtime” on Broadway. She is the first director involved with Music Circus to be nominated for a Tony.

Dodge will return to Music Circus this summer to direct “Oklahoma!” in the 60th anniversary season under the tent (do they still call it that?) The Tony Awards are blowin’ up your television set on June 13th and I predict that “Glee” will somehow win an award.
