Audition for Oakton’s “Cabaret” Aug. 23-24

(Aug. 3, 2017) Actors are needed to bring a tragic love story featuring iconic Broadway tunes and a poignant message to the stage. Open call auditions for Oakton Community College’s production of “Cabaret” are scheduled 6-9 p.m., Wednesday and Thursday, Aug. 23-24, at the college’s Footlik Theater, 1600 E. Golf Road, Des Plaines.

The director is seeking actor-singers of all ages, ethnicities and genders. Bring two contrasting songs from the musical theater canon (16 bars each). Actors will also be required to do a cold reading from the script.

Based on the play by John Van Druten and stories by Christopher Isherwood, “Cabaret” focuses on performers at the Kit Kat Klub who choose to live a carefree life ignoring the political upheaval as the Nazis take over Berlin and the rest of Germany.

Performances are scheduled Oct. 5-15. For more information, call 847.635.1897.
