The Sound of Music Will Challenge the Boundries of the Boman

BrickStreet Theater will be staging a production of The Sound of Music for its summer musical production. The show’s director, Lynnea Fredrickson-Smith is calling for a large cast.

This Rodgers and Hammerstein classic will be performed in the Boman Fine Arts Center on July 21-22 and July 26-28. Those who are interested in auditioning do not need to sign up. Actors should come prepared to sing about 30 seconds of a song that showcases their musical ability, preferably a selection not from The Sound of Music.

The show will cast both speaking and non-speaking roles.

The show offers an opportunity for families to enjoy participating in community theatre together whether onstage or as part of a production crew: set, props, paint, and more. Rehearsals are held on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday evenings then with more frequency as performances near.

The show itself will utilize the theater as a whole highlighting its capabilities in a way never seen before.

Auditions for The Sound of Music will be on three days: Saturday, May 18, from 9 a.m. to noon; Sunday, May 20, from 6 to 9 p.m.; and Tuesday, May 21, from 6 to 9 p.m. in BrickStreet on Clark located at 122 N. Clark Street, Forest City

The Sound of Music will be directed by Lynnea Fredrickson-Smith with musical direction by Nathaniel Hedin-Schmidt. Tickets are on sale now through www.brickstreettheatre.org and the Forest City Chamber.
