The Gem Players announce auditions for their upcoming spring production of The Marvelous Wonderettes on Feb. 24 and 25 at 6:30 p.m. at the Gem Theater in Etowah.

The cast includes four women, ages 20 and above. Participants should bring two musical selections of their choice with either CD or sheet music. There will be an accompanist for the auditions.The Gem Players are excited to bring this smash off-Broadway hit to the Gem Theater.

This high energy musical takes you to the 1958 Springfield High School prom where we meet the Wonderettes, four girls with hopes and dreams as big as their crinoline skirts and big hair! As we learn about their lives and loves, we are treated to the girls performing such classic 1950s and ’60s songs as “Lollipop,” “Dream Lover,” “Stupid Cupid,” “Lipstick on Your Collar,” “Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me,” “It’s My Party” and more than 20 other classic hits.

“The Marvelous Wonderettes is a very high energy musical production with nonstop singing and performing,” says veteran director LaMone Rose.

Auditions will also consist of readings from the script as acting performance is also important to the quality of the show.

“We encourage women 20 and above to audition for this rollicking blast from the musical past,” adds Rose.

Performance dates are April 24 through May 4 at the historic Gem Theater in Etowah. For more information, call the Gem office at 423-263-3270 or email gem_players@bellsouth.net.
