BPA to hold auditions for ‘Fun Home’ musical

Bainbridge Performing Arts will host a two-day audition session for their upcoming production of “Fun Home” on Oct. 19 and 26.

Hailed as one of Broadway’s most original musicals, and the winner of five Tony Awards, “Fun Home” is a refreshingly honest, funny, and intimate musical about seeing one’s parents through grown-up eyes.

Run dates are March 13-15; March 20-22; and March 27-29. A pay-what-you-can preview is planned for March 12.

Rehearsals extend Jan. 13 through March 11, from 6:40 to 9:40 p.m.Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays, plus 11:30 a.m. to 5 p.m Saturdays.

Rehearsals will be held at both BPA and Theater Puget Sound in Seattle.

Cast members will be provided with walk-on ferry passes for rehearsals and performances.

The show includes roles for two adult men (ages 20s and 40s), four adult women (two college age and two in their 40s), one girl (age 8-12ish), and two boys (ages 6-13ish). View a complete list of characters online at www.bainbridgeperformingarts.org.

Roles listed are representative; BPA officials said they are open and excited to consider all actors for all roles, and encourage actors of all races and genders to audition.

All roles are open to audition, and those auditioning are requested to prepare a verse and chorus of a contemporary musical theatre song (no pop songs) and a 1- to 2-minute monologue.

An accompanist will be provided but you must bring sheet music — clearly marked and in a three-ring binder. No outside accompanists or acapella singing.
