Keystone Theatrics at The Playhouse At Allenberry Announces Auditions For Jerry’s Girls: The Music of Jerry Herman!
Directed by Dustin C. LeBlanc
Vocal Direction by Mary George
Spend an evening with the music of Jerry Herman and you too will cheer for Broadway’s electrifying tribute to this all-American master of song. Taking center stage are some of Broadway’s best musicals, including Hello Dolly!, Mame, Mack and Mabel, Dear World and La Cage Aux Folles. Jerry’s Girls celebrates glamour, optimism, love, melody and women! The all-female cast reminds us how Jerry Herman has given voice to some of Broadway’s biggest legends, with his unique ability to write comedy, ballads and show-stoppers. He’s won multiple Tony, Grammy, Olivier and Drama Desk Awards but, first and foremost, he’s also won our heart!

Rehearsals will begin immediately (Saturday, April 10) as time is limited. Rehearsals will be in person but will follow social distancing protocols and guidelines. The theatre will be cleaned and sanitized regularly between rehearsals, performances, and any other activities. Safety of the cast, creative team, and crew members is the number one priority and concern. Everyone involved will be required to sign a COVID-19 waiver prior to the first rehearsal, and our team will regularly check in to make sure that you are taking the proper precautions to help ensure the safety and health of your fellow teammates.
Tech week will be from Sunday, May 2 through Thursday, May 7, 2021. No absences will be accepted during tech week or performances.

Please make sure you can fully commit to the rehearsal period and performance schedule before submitting your virtual audition. Due to the limited rehearsal period, you must have a fairly open April and be willing to make the show a priority.
Female identifying performers ages 18 and up are welcome to audition. We will be casting 3 to 8 performers. Experienced or first time performers who enjoy acting, singing, and are good movers are invited to audition. Unless strictly and specifically mandated from the playwright, all roles are open and available to anyone regardless of race, ethnicity, or body type. Jerry’s Girls is entirely sung, so vocal stamina and the ability to read music are very important.
