Theatre A La Carte, North Florida’s award-winning musical theatre company, is seeking applications from individuals interested in serving in a technical and artistic role for its 2014 production of Show Boat.
Theatre A La Carte is focused on creating high-quality award-winning musical theatre; cultivating an environment of artistic excellence and education for artists, audiences and the community; and advancing knowledge, skills and participation in the theatre arts. During its history, Theatre A La Carte has focused on contemporary musicals, cult classics, Broadway hits and family fare. As a result, most of the musicals we have produced during our tenure have been Tallahassee premieres.
Show Boat has only been performed twice in Tallahassee since the 1980s - once as a community theatre production by Entertainment Plus and once as part of the Civic Center’s Broadway Series. The production planned for 2014 is the 1994 Tony-award winning Broadway revival version that updated the show and re-integrated many of the social themes present during earlier productions. The 1994 production was revised by legendary director Harold Prince, Oscar Hammerstein’s eldest son William, and celebrated choreographer Susan Stroman.
The Board of Directors is seeking qualified applicants for its 2014 production of Show Boat. Specifically, the Board is recruiting for the positions of:
· Music Director/ Conductor
· Lighting Design and Operation
· Stage Manager
Auditions are tentatively planned for May 2, 3 and 9, 2014, with performances scheduled for July 18-20 and July 25-27, 2014. All performances are held at Theatre Tallahassee; rehearsals are held at another location.
