Isadoora Theatre Company is proud to announce auditions for their winter musical,
Striking 12, music by Valerie Vigoda and Brendan Milburn (of the band GrooveLily), book
by Rachel Sheinkin (Tony award-winner for The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling
Bee), and directed by Janet Anderson. The company, known for producing musicals
such as Chicago (2007) and She Loves Me (2009), returns to the genre after a three-year
hiatus. Striking 12 will play February 9-12 & 16-19, 2012 in Juniper Hall at Birch Creek
Music Performance Center in Egg Harbor. Thursday through Saturday performances are
at 7:30pm with Sunday matinees at 2:00pm.
Isadoora seeks men and women actors, singers, and musicians of any experience
level to play in Striking 12. Even if you’ve never tried out for a play or musical before,
Isadoora would love to hear you. Those wishing to audition should prepare part of a
song (one minute or less), preferably in a pop-style. An accompanist will be provided if
needed (please bring sheet music). Auditions will include cold readings from the script;
prepared monologues will also be considered upon actor’s request.
Auditions are on Saturday, November 19 from 1:00pm to 3:30pm at Hope Church,
located at 141 S. 12th Ave in Sturgeon Bay, and on Sunday, November 20 from 6:00pm
to 8:30pm at Lawrence University’s Björklunden, at 7590 Boynton Ln, off of Hwy 57 just
south of Baileys Harbor. You can drop in for either session and plan to be there for up
to 30 minutes. If you would like to audition but cannot attend one of the auditions,
please call Isadoora at 920.493.DOOR (3667).
Striking 12 is the story of a Grumpy Guy who resolves to avoid the hectic, loveless world
on New Year's Eve, until he's visited by an incandescent salesgirl with the promise
to chase away his winter doldrums. Combining pop-rock, musical comedy and old-fashioned uplift with a healthy dose of 21st-century skepticism, this festive tale will
ignite the holiday spirit and illuminate the season with intelligent, original songs and no
shortage of wit. Striking 12 connects lush musical textures and soaring vocals to make a
new music that's all its own.
Isadoora, now in its tenth season, is proud to be Door County’s top-quality community
theater in the quiet season, providing thought-provoking works of intellectual
integrity for the enjoyment of our community. Learn more at www.isadoora.com and
