‘Oklahoma’ auditions will be Dec. 26-27 in Abrams

Abrams Spotlight Productions Inc. (ASPI) will hold auditions Dec. 26-27 for its spring musical, “Oklahoma!” to be presented March 14-17 and 21-24.

The Rodgers and Hammerstein musical tells the love story of Curly, a handsome cowboy, and Laurey, a beautiful farm girl. This musical, directed by Ali Carlson, calls for a cast of 20 actors, age 12 and older. No stage experience is necessary to try out.

Individuals will have two opportunities to audition: 6-8:30 p.m. Dec. 26 or Dec. 27 at the Nancy Byng Community Theater, 5852 Maple St., Abrams.

Individuals who audition should be prepared to sing one minute of a song, preferably from a musical. They can sing a capella or play music on their phone.

The auditions will also include a reading from the script and a group choreography number, so comfortable clothing and shoes are recommended. Dance experience is a plus.

To save time and skip the line, individuals can complete the audition paperwork online at Abramstheater.com prior to arrival. If an in-person audition isn’t feasible, contact ASPI at 920-826-5852 or theater.aspi@gmail.com regarding an alternate time or a video audition.

Rehearsals start Jan. 2 and will mainly be held on Sunday, Tuesday, and Thursday evenings.
