Celebrating our 25th Anniversary this year, The Workshop Players are keeping busy. After all the open-air Shakespeare that we’ve been performing, all we wanted to do was get far away from the cold night air, so we’re happy to announce the staging of Lerner and Loewe’s Broadway classic, "My Fair Lady", in October (6th-15th) 2017. Now, wouldn’t that be loverly?
The production will be staged by special arrangement with Tams-Witmark, and is a timeless classic that will be brought to life in Colombo 60 years after it was first performed. Based on George Bernard Shaw's "Pygmalion", the production is considered one of the finest musicals ever created, and is often referred to as ‘the perfect musical’.
Auditions for the production will be held on Sunday, the 21st of May 2017, at the Lionel Wendt rehearsal room at 9.00 a.m. Registrations begin at 8.30 a.m.
The Workshop Players is one of Colombo’s foremost amateur theatre groups, enjoying unprecedented successes over the years with musical theatre productions such as: Les Miserablés, The Phantom of the Opera, Jesus Christ Superstar, Evita, The Sound of Music, Oliver! and plays such as A Streetcar Named Desire, A View from The Bridge and the Shakespeare in the Park festivals.
All roles are open. For the audition, prepare a song from the musical, (as suggested in the link below). Given how important various accents are to the plot and the nature of the characters in this musical (for example, Eliza’s heavy Cockney accent), it is important that the lead performers can adopt the accents required by their roles; demonstrating this ability at the audition will be essential. With some preparation and with a little bit of luck, the role is yours!
