Auditions set for The Wedding Singer

The Brass Rail Players at Lindenwood is going reverse to the big-haired '80s with the fresh, amusing romantic musical comedy The Wedding Singer.

Open auditions will get place at 6 p.m. Monday, May 24, and Tuesday, May 25, at the Lindenwood University Belleville hall, Premier Center for the Arts,2600 W. Main St., Belleville.

It is the St. Louis area community theater premiere of the 2006 Tony candidate for Best Musical, which is base on the hit 1998 Adam Sandler-Drew Barrymore movie.

Principal roles comprise rock star wannabe Robbie Hart, his bandmates Sammy and George, his fiance Linda, pal Julia, her boyfriend Glen, her cousin Holly, and Robbie's rappin Grandma Rosie. A chorus is also required for the ensemble, and there are seven celebrity mimic cameos available: Mr. T, Tina Turner, Billy Idol, Cyndi Lauper, Nancy and Ronald Reagan, and Imelda Marcos.

Auditions are open to anyone in the region and the Brass Rail Players give confidence diversity in casting. The ages being sought for this exacting show range from high school to senior citizens.

For auditions, you will be asked to read scenes from the script with others on phase, sing at least 16 bars of a song (you can bring your own accompanist or one will be provided), and depending on the position, learn a few dance steps in a group (so wear shoes appropriate for dancing or bring dance shoes). If you can bring a photo to fasten to the audition form, it will be returned provided you also bring a stamped self-addressed cover.
