Auditions for Summer Theatre Productions

Open auditions for the Southwestern College Summer Theatre Festival productions of “Tarzan” and “I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change” are coming soon to Southwestern College.

Auditions for the two shows will be on Friday, May 31, 6:30-8:30 p.m., and Saturday, June 1, 10 a.m.-noon and 1-4 p.m., in Messenger Recital Hall in the Darbeth Fine Arts Building on the campus of Southwestern College.

According to Allyson Moon, auditions are open to individuals of all ages and especially those that are ages nine and older.

“Tarzan” will be performed July 11-13.

Based on Edgar Rice Burrough's “Tarzan of the Apes” and the hit 1999 Disney animated film, “Tarzan” tells the story of an infant boy orphaned on the shores of West Africa. Taken in and raised by a tribe of gorillas, the young boy strives for acceptance by his ape father while grappling with his uniqueness. When a human expedition enters their territory, Tarzan - now a man - encounters strangers like himself for the first time. 
“Tarzan” features music and lyrics by pop icon Phil Collins, including the Grammy- and Oscar-winning song "You'll Be in My Heart,” and book by Tony Award-winning playwright, David Henry Hwang

“I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change” is a musical comedy by Joe DiPietro and Jimmy Roberts.  The show depicts the trials and tribulations of being single, dating, marriage, loss, and heartbreak.

“I Love you, You’re Perfect, Now Change” will be performed July 25-28.
