The Haywood Arts Regional Theatre will hold auditions for its July production of the Broadway Musical “Smash Gypsy” at 6:30 p.m. on Sunday and Monday, May 8 and 9, at the HART Theater in Waynesville.
“Gypsy” was created by the team that was responsible for “West Side Story” and is based on the life of famed burlesque stripper Gypsy Rose Lee. The musical chronicles the final glory days of vaudeville and the seedy and sometimes dazzling world of burlesque.
There are major roles for men and women of all ages — singing and non-singing — and roles for boys, girls and young people of various ages.
Actors interested in singing roles should come prepared to sing, preferably with sheet music. An accompanist will be provided. Anyone auditioning will be given scenes to read from the script. Those interested in working backstage on the production are also encouraged to come by during auditions to sign up.
