Newport's Red Octopus Theatre Company, Director/Choreographer Darcy Hogan* and Music Director Brad Capshaw are currently casting for McNally & Yazbek's hit musical comedy, The Full Monty.
AUDITIONS will be held on Saturday, June 4 at 10am and on Monday, June 6 at 7pm at the Newport Performing Arts Center. Those interested can audition on either date - there is no need to attend both.
Auditioners will be asked to read from the script - there is no need to prepare a monologue. Those attending should prepare a short vocal selection - one verse and a chorus of a contemporary song of their choice. Your selection may be sung a capella, or you may bring accompaniment on CD. Please wear something comfortable as the audition will be followed by a brief dance audition (a short combination will be taught - nothing complex, just enough to see if you can "move").
Rehearsals begin in August. Performances begin on 11-11-11 and run for three weeks.

Please note: Not every character must sing or dance, and not every singing role requires a Pavarotti. Additionally, this show offers roles for people of just about any age or race, and the director is very interested in diversity in casting.
ALL AGES, RACES, SIZES AND ABILITIES ARE ENCOURAGED TO ATTEND!
* Director/Choreographer Darcy Hogan is a recent transplant from Southern California. She is 25-year veteran of the stage, a former acting company member of the Tony Award-winning Utah Shakespearean Festival, a critically-acclaimed director, award-winning playwright and former Burlesque dancer/choreographer. This will be her first production in Oregon.
