Please be prepared with 16 bars of a song from a Broadway show (but not from the show you are auditioning for), and come dressed for movement.

Leiber and Stoller, as much as anyone, virtually invented rock 'n' roll, and now their songs provide the basis for an electrifying entertainment that illuminates a golden age of American culture. In an idealized '50's setting, the classic themes of love won, lost and imagined blend with hilarious set-pieces and slice-of-life emotions. Featuring nearly 40 of the greatest songs ever recorded, Smokey Joe's Cafe isn't just great pop music - it's compelling musical theatre.
The songs include "Neighborhood," "Young Blood," "Falling," "Ruby Baby," "Dance With Me," "Keep On Rollin'," "Searchin'," "Kansas City," "Trouble," "Love Me," "Don't," "Fools Fall In Love," "Poison Ivy," "Don Juan," "Shoppin' For Clothes," "I Keep Forgettin'," "On Broadway," "D.W. Washburn," "Saved, Baby," "That Is Rock & Roll," "Yakety Yak," "Charlie Brown," "Stay A While," "Pearl's A Singer," "Teach Me How To Shimmy," "You're The Boss," "Smokey Joe's Cafe," "Loving You," "Treat Me Nice," "Hound Dog," "Little Egypt," "I'm A Woman," "There Goes My Baby," "Love Potion #9," "Some Cats Know," "Jailhouse Rock," "Spanish Harlem," "I (Who Have Nothing)," "Stand By Me."
The orginal Broadway production opened in 1995 and ran for 2036 performances.

This musical features some of the greatest music written by Cole Porter, including "You're the Top", "I Get a Kick Out of You", and of course, "Anything Goes"!

ARTISTIC DIFFERENCES SEEKS STUDENT IMPROV ACTORS

Attention junior high school, high school, and college-age students who have an interest in performing.  Help us.

Artistic Differences is helping out the Sacramento SPCA by putting together entertainment for their annual fundraiser.  They have asked us to stage a large-scale 'Improv Everywhere' style event, and we need performers!  If you could please print this flyer out and post it anywhere that students can see it, or pass on the electronic version to teachers in your school or institution, we would so greatly appreciate it!  The event will be completely PG, and lots of fun.  If you're a teacher, you could even offer extra credit for participating - it really will be a neat event.  And all for a great cause.

If you have any questions, please contact Maggie Hollinbeck by email, or by phone at 916.804.1371.  And please pass on the word.  We, and the animals, thank you!
