STEPPING OUT Auditions at Playhouse February 11 & 12
Auditions for STEPPNG OUT will be held at Lincoln Community Playhouse on February 11 and 12 beginning at 7:00 p.m. each night. Callbacks will be held February 13 beginning at 7:00 p.m. Roles are available for 9 women and 1 man.* Actors should come at 7:00 p.m. and bring tap shoes if possible. Auditions will consist of reading from the script and learning a tap combination. Previous tap experience is not essential, but helpful since there are two dance numbers in this show. Performances are April 4-6 and 9-13.
STEPPING OUT by Richard Harris is a comedy about an adult tap dance class filled with lovable misfit students who range from hopeless to inept. When their teacher announces they will be performing in a charity talent show, the pressure’s on. With varying degrees of talent and determination, each class member copes with the challenge of balancing life’s issues with the need to get the next time step learned.
Morrie Enders will direct with Cristy Kula as choreographer, Kathleen Lorenzen as scenic and lighting designer, Karen Statham as costume designer, Mary Stine as stage manager and Nick Turner as technical director.
STEPPING OUT is sponsored by Lincoln Community Playhouse Guild. Season sponsor is Russ's Market and media sponsor is KFOR 1240AM.
