CASTING SINGERS for a Cole Porter revue in San Francisco!
Director and Producer John Bisceglie seeks 35 non-union men and women (ages 18+) to appear in “Classic Cole Porter”. Seeking diverse performers with strong vocal abilities and a dynamic personality to perform a variety of classic Cole Porter songs. Cast members will appear in multiple solo, duet, group and ensemble numbers accompanied by a grand piano. The concert will be performed at the beautiful Marine’s Memorial Theater on Sunday, April 7th.
Celebrate gifted composer and lyricist, Cole Porter and his legendary contribution to the American songbook. The show features a hit parade of songs from the 1920’s 30’s and 40’s including Begin the Beguine, From This Moment On, Anything Goes, It’s De-Lovely, You’re The Top, Just One of Those Things, and My Heart Belongs to Daddy. Cole Porter set new standards for popular songwriting, and his lyrics and melodies are as bright and sophisticated today as when they first dazzled audiences decades ago.
This is a fun, non-paid community theater production with a talented cast, high production value and small time commitment (one day a week), allowing those with busy schedules and family commitments the ability to perform in a dynamic production.
