Auditions for THE MUSICAL OF MUSICALS (THE MUSICAL!)

Corn Stock Theatre is proud to announce AUDITIONS for our Summer Showcase production of
The Musical of Musicals (The Musical!) •
Directed by Greg & Sarah Blume

 

• • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • •

Show Dates are: August 19 – 22, August 26 – 29, and September 2 – 5

This year the format is different than past years. Shows will open on Thursday and run thru Sunday with Mondays, Tuesday and Wednesdays off.

Show Synopsis:
The Musical of Musicals (The Musical!) is a musical about musicals! In this hilarious satire of musical theatre, one story becomes five delightful musicals, each written in the distinctive style of a different master of the form, from Rodgers & Hammerstein to Stephen Sondheim. The basic plot: June is an ingenue who can’t pay rent and is threatened by her evil landlord. Will the handsome leading man come to the rescue? The variations are: a Rodgers & Hammerstein version, set in Kansas in August, complete with a dream ballet; a Sondheim version, featuring the landlord as a tortured artistic genius who slashes the throats of his tenants in revenge for not appreciating his work; a Jerry Herman version, as a splashy star vehicle; an Andrew Lloyd Webber version, a rock musical with themes borrowed from Puccini; and a Kander & Ebb version, set in a speakeasy in Chicago. This comic valentine to musical theatre was the longest-running show in the York Theatre Company’s 35-year history before moving off-Broadway.
