The hills are still alive

May 19, 2009 - Cindy Votruba
The SMSU theater lobby was filled with the sound of children last night as I walked in around 6:50 p.m. Monday was the first night of audtions for Marshall Area Stage Company’s “The Sound of Music.” I was happy to see the number of kids, adults and even some of the kids’ parents trying out for the show. All in all, I believe 54 people tried out last night. Wow. I have to say that was the biggest audition I’ve seen for any of our MASC musicals. Probably bigger than “Fiddler on the Roof.”

More than half of the 54 were children vying for seven roles. A lot of the kids were between the ages of 7 and 14. It will be a tough decision for the director and musical director to select kids to fill the parts.

I counted 22 adults so far for the rest of the cast. But there’s definitely more room for party guests, postulants, Nazis and maybe a couple or three more nuns. Not everyone has a singing part in the show, so if you want to be on stage and don’t necessarily have the strongest singing voice, come on down tonight to the SMSU Mainstage theater. There’s room for you.
