La Cage Aux Folles auditions announced

Imagine will transform Wall Street Night Club into La Cage Aux Folles in February for our first full production of 2014. You may know the story from the 1996 movie The Birdcage with Robin Williams and Nathan Lane. So that means, we have the perfect venue to showcase a cast of hot high-kicking drag queens.  We are excited to announce Audrey Rush as director after her recent appearance as Maria in 9 to 5. Audrey has worked with Actors’ Theatre and Mad Lab locally after completing her degree in Theatre from The Ohio State University. The production team includes Tim Valentine, musical director; Dana Anderson, stage manager; Zoe Lathan, choreographer; Jackie Farbeann, costumer; and Rob Philpott, set/lighting designer.

The cast will include:

13-15 men: Albin, Georges, Jean-Michel, Anne, Edouard Dindon/Mr. Renaud, Jacob, Francis, Les Cagelles (6-8)

3 women: Anne, Jacqueline, Marie Dindon/Mme. Renaud

Actors should prepare a brief vocal selection and be ready to learn a dance combination. An accompanist will be provided. Auditions will be on Saturday, December 14 starting at 1:00pm at Stonewall Columbus in the Short North. Call-backs will take place on Sunday, December 15.
