In the Heights Auditions

311 E Walnut St Springfield, Missouri 65806

Springfield Little Theatre will be holding AUDITIONS for In the Heights in the 4th Floor Rehearsal Studio at the Landers Theatre, 311 East Walnut October 16 and 17 at 7:00 p.m.  Interested performers will be led through a movement audition and will be asked to present a memorized vocal selection less than one-minute in length.  Callbacks, consisting of a dance audition, cold readings, and singing assigned content from the musical will be held Wednesday, October 18, beginning at 7:00 p.m.

In Collaboration with Mosaic Arts Collective, this 2008 Tony Award-winner for Best Musical features music and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda and centers on an ensemble of characters in the Washington Heights neighborhood of New York City.

Nina has just returned to her Washington Heights neighborhood from her freshman year at Stanford, unsure if she plans to go back; her parents struggle to keep their small business alive and Benny, their young employee, does his best to help the company stay afloat; Usnavi operates a tiny bodega, and his love interest, Vanessa, only dreams of finding a studio apartment in the coveted West Village. When the winning lottery ticket, a power outage, and romantic tension all hit the ‘hood, the long-time friends and neighbors make discoveries about each other, about themselves, and about the place they all call home.
