Auditions open for Rodgers and Hammerstein's 'A Grand Night for Singing'

King’s Players recently announced auditions for children between eight and 20 years of age to be held Monday, July 6, at Christ the King Lutheran Church in Fallbrook.

The singing auditions will be held from 6-8 p.m. at 1620 S. Stage Coach Lane. Singers need to be prepared with a one-minute song.

The show, “A Grand Night for Singing,” is a musical revue penned by Rodgers and Hammerstein. It will be a full-youth production with only a few featured adult soloists.

Director Mary Fry said she liked this format “since it allows more cast members to participate in the great songs from shows like ‘Carousel,’ ‘Oklahoma,’ ‘Sound of Music’ and ‘The King and I’ along with others from the Rodgers & Hammerstein songbook.”

“A Grand Night for Singing” will be directed and produced by Fry with Erika Torrescano at her side. Becky Brooks will be the musical director for this production.

Performances are Friday, Aug. 21, at 7:30 p.m.; Saturday, Aug. 22, at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.; Friday, Aug. 28, at 7:30 p.m. and Saturday, Aug. 29, at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. All shows will be performed at Christ the King Church, 1620 S. Stage Coach Road, in Fallbrook.

In lieu of a casting fee, each cast member will be asked to sell 10 or more tickets during the run, Fry said. Social distancing guidelines will be adhered to at rehearsals and performances, due to coronavirus pandemic. According to Fry, “there still could be a bit of post-quarantine fun.”

For audition questions, additional information or advance ticket sales, contact Fry at 760-468-6302.
