Auditions set for La Cage aux Folles

Join the Lakewood Theatre Company to tryout


The Lakewood Theatre Company will hold open auditions Feb. 16 and 17 for the musical “La Cage aux Folles,” to be directed by Greg Tamblyn with musical direction by Alan D. Lytle.

Tamblyn seeks 11 men, ages 20 to 60, and eight women, ages 20 to 50. All ethnicities are encouraged to audition and all roles receive remuneration.

Those wishing to audition should reserve an audition slot by calling the box office at 503-635-3901 and prepare 32 bars of a song. Auditioners are requested to bring a resume and an 8-by-10-inch glossy photo. The auditions will take place at Lakewood Center for the Arts, 368 S. State St., Lake Oswego.

“La Cage aux Folles” opens May 3 and runs through June 9, with performances Thursday through Saturday at 7:30 p.m., occasional Sunday matinees at 2 p.m. and evenings at 7.

The musical features a gay night club owner and his temperamental partner and stage performer. The night club owner’s son wants his family to meet his fiancé’s parents but there’s a catch — her father is head of an anti-gay political party. A story of respect and understanding, parents and children, love and marriage unfolds.

The book for “La Cage aux Folles” is by Harvey Fierstein, music and lyrics are by Jerry Herman. The story is based on the 1973 play of the same name by Jean Poiret. Noted musical numbers include “The Best of Times” and “I Am What I Am.” The original 1983 Broadway production won six Tony Awards, including best musical, best score and best book.
