Auditions for Summer Theatre Festival Presentation of ‘Rock of Ages’ Scheduled for May 11 and 12

Open auditions for the Southwestern College Summer Theatre Festival production of “Rock of Ages” have been announced. 

Auditions will be Friday, May 11, from 5 to 9 p.m., and Saturday, May 12, from 9 a.m. to noon in the Richardson Performing Arts Center in the Christy Administration Building. The auditions are for ages 11 and up. Individuals auditioning can prepare a song or can sing a song from the show.  Director Allyson Moon says that men are to sing “Don’t Stop Believin’” and women should sing “We’re Not Going to Take It.” She adds that any rock song in their repertoire can be used.  Scenes from the show will be used for the acting portion of the audition and will be provided. 

“Rock of Ages” will be performed June 29-July 1. The show is a big, brash, and energetic tribute to classic rock, over-the-top ballads and fierce guitar, and the gritty glamour and rough energy of the Sunset Strip.  This jukebox musical features ’80s hits such as “We Built this City,” “I Wanna Rock,” and “Don’t Stop Believin’.”

Other productions for the summer include “Aladdin Jr.” June 8 and 9, and “Avenue Q” July 27-29.
