WHAT: Moresby Arts Theatre – Auditions for “ROCK OF AGES” – A face-melting 80’s rock musical extravaganza
WHERE: Port Moresby International School Music Room, Bava St., East Boroko
WHEN: 7pm-10pm on both Monday, 5th September and Tuesday 6th September, 2011
YEAAAAAHH!! What’s goin’ down, Email reader???!! Welcome to Rock of Ages – set in Los Angeles on the famous Sunset Strip in the mid-to-late eighties. That’s right – the Reagan era!
The music that ignited a generation is going to heat up Port Moresby this November. The classic rock love story of the decade is going to erupt into Moresby’s best party, all to the sounds of such feel-good, sing-out-loud songs as Every Rose Has Its Thorn, I Wanna Know What Love Is, Here I Go Again, Don’t Stop Believin’ and much, much, more. This hilarious musical is nothin’ but a good time.
The same creative talent that brought you Mamma Mia (2008), Wicked (2009), and We Will Rock You (2010) returns for the biggest and brightest event of this generation. We need your super-talented selves to get out and audition to be a part of this special event. The show will be performed on the 2nd – 5th and the 9th – 12th November, 2011.
If you’ve ever held your hairbrush like a microphone to sing classic 80’s tracks in the bathroom, we want you. Come be a rock star on Moresby’s biggest stage…
AUDITION REQUIREMENTS: You will be expected to sing a specific song from the musical as listed below, but please be aware that you are able to sing any of these songs if you would prefer:
- CHORUS/ANYONE: ‘Don’t Stop Believing’ by Journey (surprising, I know – Glee didn’t write that song)
- CHORUS/ANYONE: ‘Here I Go Again’ by Whitesnake (classic – always a karaoke favourite)
- FEMALE LEADS: ‘More Than Words’ by Extreme (instantly recognisable by those first few chords)
- MALE LEADS: ‘Dead or Alive’ by Bon Jovi (‘cause I’m wanted (WAAANTEEEDD!) Dead or Alive…)
- CHORUS/ANYONE: ‘The Final Countdown’ by Europe (that keyboard riff… Bonus points for singing this version)
You will also have to read an excerpt from the “ROCK OF AGES” script, which will be provided on the night.
And our biggest request is… please be on time!!!
