Auditions for 'Honk!' February 11-12 at SU

SALISBURY, MD---Salisbury University is looking for a few good geese… along with ducks, felines and even a few wetlands creatures as the Bobbi Biron Theatre Program prepares to present the musical Honk! April 19-22 and 26-29 in the Black Box Theatre of Fulton Hall.

Cast auditions for the performance are 6:30-8:30 p.m. Sunday, February 11, in Fulton Hall Room 130, and Monday, February 12, in Fulton Hall Room 112. Callbacks are 6:30-8:30 p.m. Tuesday, February 13, in Fulton Hall Room 130. Auditions are open to SU students and community members.

Directed by Steven Drapalski, SU Theatre senior, Honk! is a comedic musical retelling of the Hans Christian Andersen story “The Ugly Duckling.” Scored by British songwriting duo George Stiles and Anthony Drewe, the play opened to a standing ovation at the Stephen Joseph Theatre in Scarborough, England, in 1997.

Those auditioning must prepare one minute of a song from the traditional musical theatre repertoire. Pianist Sunny Kim provides accompaniment. All auditioning must bring sheet music in the correct key, as well as any potential rehearsal conflicts. Auditions also consist of a dance portion, choreographed by SU Dance Company member Erica Jablecki. A total 16 performers will be cast, including several playing multiple roles. Rehearsals will be five-six days each week.
