Audition Announcements

The Grand Marais Playhouse will hold auditions for The Marvelous Wonderettes: Dream on

March 19 at 6:30 PM a the Arrowhead center for the Arts

Characters:
Betty Jean
is the class clown and tomboy of the group, best friends with Cindy Lou. Always quick with a comeback, red-headed Betty Jean has a loving heart that is easy to break. She finally leaves her philandering husband, and discovers the inner strength to survive on her own. (Alto with strong low range.)

Cindy Lou was always the prettiest girl at Springfield High. While her hopes were previously shattered, this raven-haired beauty takes one final chance to make her childhood dreams of stardom come true. Sassy, wicked, with a heart of gold. (Mezzo Soprano with belt–sings lead on many songs.) 

Missy is the over-achiever of the group, keeping control of everything in her path as the group’s organizing force. With her new husband Mr. Lee watching from the front row, this mousy-haired type-A personality reveals that she has a baby on the way, and all bets are off as she prepares for the adventure of a lifetime. (Soprano with wide range and very high vocals.) 

Suzy is giddy, happy-go-lucky, slightly ditzy, and best friends with Missy. Forever in love with her childhood sweetheart (now husband), this fearless blonde worries that her marriage might be on the rocks as the Matchbox plant in town closes and husband Ritchie is forced to look for work out of town. (Mezzo Alto with a sweet, soulful sound and big belts.)

Rehearsal schedule will be determined by cast and directors.
