The Sound of Music 

G2K version 

Music by Richard Rodgers
Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein

April 9 – 11

Uniquely adapted musicals specifically for youth performers. The final collaboration between Rodgers & Hammerstein was destined to become the world’s most beloved musical. When a postulate proves too high-spirited for the religious life, she is dispatched to serve as governess for the seven children of a widowed naval Captain. Her growing rapport with the youngsters, coupled with her generosity of spirit, gradually captures the heart of the stern Captain, and they marry. Upon returning from their honeymoon they discover that Austria has been invaded by the Nazis, who demand the Captain’s immediate service in their navy. The family’s narrow escape over the mountains to Switzerland on the eve of World War II provides one of the most thrilling and inspirational finales ever presented in the theatre. The motion picture version remains the most popular movie musical of all time. In this adaptation for pre-high school students, the content has been edited to better suit younger attention spans, but all the elements that make this show a classic are still in place. You and your students will be enchanted by the timeless story and the dazzling score, while at the same time learning about theater and its production.

Breakfast at Tiffany’s

Tuesday, January 27 NEW NEW DATE
7:00 pm – Rehearsal Studio

Civic Theatre of Allentown is proud to announce auditions for Richard Greenberg’s adaptation of Truman Capote’s infamous novella Breakfast at Tiffany’s.
This adaptation has previously played London’s West End as well as a brief run on Broadway last season. New York during World War II is the kaleidoscopic background for the story of Holly Golightly told by “Fred” embodied by a core ensemble of actors that will serve as the people and pulse of New York as experienced and enjoyed by Holly. Utilizing elements of choreography and devised theatre movement we are looking for a cast of 20 to 30 actors. Actors are asked to arrive on time with a photograph and resume and will be asked to read from the script as well as participate in theatre games and movement pieces during the audition. Comfortable clothing and footwear should be worn. Artistic Director William Sanders directs.
