The Milford Performing Arts Center is pleased to announce open auditions for actors aged 8 to 22 for its upcoming production of Bye, Bye Birdie, the popular musical that brought rock 'n roll to Broadway! Set in the 1950′s, American teenagers are crazy for rock star Conrad Birdie. When he is drafted, a publicity stunt is staged in which Conrad is to kiss a lucky fan live on national TV before he leaves for the Army. Kim from Ohio is the lucky girl, much to the chagrin of her boyfriend Hugo. Things turn out alright as this musical becomes the tops in imagination and good old-fashioned fun. Auditions will be held at the MPAC studio at 150 Main Street (MA Route 16E), Milford as follows: Sunday, March 16 from 12:30 PM to 3:30 PM for ages 8-10 years; Sunday, March 16 from 5:00 PM to 8:00 PM for ages 11- 13 years; and Monday, March 17 from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM for ages 14-22 years. Auditioners should prepare a song and bring in sheet music if possible. They will learn a very short dance along with their audition group and will also be asked to perform an improv exercise. Bye, Bye Birdie will be performed June 20, 21, and 22, 2014 at Milford High School. For more information email MPAC at [email protected] or call 508 473 1684.
