Here’s a little about….THE SENSATIONAL SIXTIES
Written and Directed by Deanna Maio
Rehearsals begin on Feb. 27th
Performances are April 27 – May 20, 2018
After a successful out of town launch during our 2016-2017 season, THE SENSATIONAL SIXTIES comes to Portland. Featuring songs from Broadway’s biggest hits of the 1960s there’s a little something for everyone in this revue.
Set in the theater after their performance ended, a cast of singers passionately debate what was their favorite musical and show tunes of the 60s. As each cast member puts their candidate forward, the entire group breaks into song to celebrate the hits from their favorite show. The revue brings together over 35 Broadway hits from Hello Dolly, A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum, Cabaret, Sweet Charity, Man of La Mancha, Hair, Oliver, Bye Bye Birdie, Fiddler on the Roof, and more.
We are auditioning to fill 1 baritone principle role. All roles are ensemble roles with some solo opportunities. All roles have some dialogue and some movement/dance.
