New Stage Theatreworks holds auditions for "In The Heights" May 21-22




New Stage Theatreworks will be holding auditions on May 21 & 22 at 7:00pm for “In the Heights”, music and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda, and book by Quiara Alegría Hudes. We are seeking talented individuals from our culturally-diverse community to join us for this musical’s Tallahassee premiere – running July 7-16.

IN THE HEIGHTS tells the universal story of a vibrant community in New York’s Washington Heights neighborhood – a place where the coffee from the corner bodega is light and sweet, the windows are always open and the breeze carries the rhythm of three generations of music. It’s a community on the brink of change, full of hopes, dreams and pressures, where the biggest struggles can be deciding which traditions you take with you, and which ones you leave behind. IN THE HEIGHTS is the winner of the 2008 Tony Awards for Best Musical.

This production is directed by Krystof Kage, with musical direction by Andy Lagrimas and choreography by Ashlee Benson.
Audition Specifics:
For auditions, please prepare 16 bars of a song and bring/wear clothes that are comfortable for a dance audition. Piano accompaniment will be provided. Songs from the show are discouraged. There may be a cold-reading portion with script sides to be provided at the audition.

For those wishing to be considered for Usnavi, Sonny, Benny or Graffiti Pete: Please prepare an original rap, to be performed a capella, that lasts no more than 30 seconds. We are looking for skills – diction, inflection, speed and movement should be highlighted.

Should they be necessary, callbacks will be held by invitation only on May 23 at 7:00pm at a different location.
