Utah Premiere of SIDE SHOW Sets Auditions for 10/20

Utah Musical Theatre Company has announced auditions for the Utah premiere of the inspirational musical SIDE SHOW.

“The Utah premiere of SIDE SHOW will be an exciting event of this year’s theater season because its message of love and acceptance is a universal theme that Utah audiences can relate to, along with beautiful contemporary music, a great band, colorful costumes, a top-notch set, and powerful choreography,” said Johnny Hebda, Utah Musical Theatre Company producer and director of SIDE SHOW.

Auditions will be held Saturday, Oct. 20 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Echo Theatre, 145 University Ave., Provo, Utah.

SIDE SHOW created much Broadway buzz at its 1997 opening when it earned positive critical recognition and hugely devoted fans. The show earned four high-profile Tony Award nominations during a highly competitive Broadway season.

“SIDE SHOW is based on the true story of conjoined twins Daisy and Violet Hilton, their journey from tawdry side shows to stardom, and their search for love and acceptance in spite of their physical condition,” Hebda explained. “We have assembled a very talented production team and are confident that we will put together an all-star cast. The regional premiere of this Broadway musical is not to be missed!”

SIDE SHOW will be produced and directed by Johnny Hebda, with choreography by William Cooper Howell, production design by Kevin Dudley and assistant directed by Adam Cannon.

Rehearsals will be in Lehi, Utah, during November and December, and then at the Echo Theatre in Provo, Utah, beginning in January. While a community theater production, a small stipend may be available for principals, especially those that are commuting. 

There are roles for 23 actors of all ages, ethnicities and appearance, open to ages 14 and older. All roles are open, with the exception of Jake.

Auditioners should prepare 32 measures of a contemporary musical theater selection in the style of the show and bring sheet music. No appointment is necessary.

The performance run is Jan. 18-Feb. 2 on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Monday evenings, with matinees on Jan. 19 and Feb. 2.

He found it to be great fun to live in New Canaan, Connecticut, with easy access to the Great White Way. But now, Blair lives in Salt Lake City (a long, not interesting story). The much-lamented move has allowed him to be more active in regional theater. He now covers theater and the arts for the Deseret News, Utah's oldest, continuously-published metro daily newspaper, and has written for various theater-related national magazines and websites.
