– Local students are encouraged to audition for Broadway Bound’s next musical, “The Drowsy Chaperone,” on Friday, May 26 from 6 to 10 p.m. at Summerlin Dance Academy, located at 1181 S. Buffalo Drive, Las Vegas, Nev. 89117. To sign up for an audition time, visit Summerlin Dance Academy or call (702) 838-5131 to reserve a time.  

Winner of five Tony Awards, including Best Book and Best Original Score, “The Drowsy Chaperone” is a loving send-up of the frivolously inconsequential stage musicals of the Jazz Age, featuring one show-stopping song and dance number after another. In the musical, a fan known only as Man in Chair gives a spin to the original cast recording of one such musical, providing the audience with amusing minutiae about the play and the players. Hailed by New York Magazine as "The Perfect Broadway Musical," “The Drowsy Chaperone” is a masterful meta-musical, poking fun at all the tropes that characterize the musical theatre genre. 

The production is looking to cast 21 actors and actresses, ages 10 to 18. Additional information for those who are auditioning is as follows:  

  • Prepare a memorized musical theater song in the style of the show. No selections from “The Drowsy Chaperone,” please.
  • Be creative in your song choice. We are also looking to see that you can act your song. 
  • Your song may be anywhere from 32 – 64 bars (90 seconds) in length. If your selection exceeds the 64 bars, because we are on a time schedule, you may be asked to stop singing. 
  • Your audition will be recorded – please speak clear and loud and remember to project your vocals. 
  • You MUST bring sheet music for the accompanist. No a capella singing, tracks, or recorded music will be allowed.
  • Please bring a list of all conflicts that you will have from May 25 through September 9, 2017. No conflicts are allowed to be added during the rehearsal process. Only conflicts given to us at your audition will be honored. You must be available for all performances.
  • If we would like to see you further for a role, you will be issued a callback email indicating which role(s) for which to prepare. If you receive a callback, all sides and/or sheet music will be emailed to you. Everyone will be notified whether or not they have been selected for the cast. 
  • Callbacks will take place on Saturday, May 27 and Sunday, May 28 at specific times that will be emailed to you if you receive a callback. 
  • Rehearsals will begin Friday, June 9. A rehearsal schedule will be compiled once we have the show cast. 

Performances of “The Drowsy Chaperone” will be held August 15 to September 9, 2017 at the Summerlin Library, located at 1771 Inner Circle Drive, Las Vegas, Nev. 89134. 

“The Drowsy Chaperone” will be directed by Michael Vojvodich, who currently serves as the Musical Theater Director/Instructor for Broadway Bound. He has directed a number of musicals for Broadway Bound, including “All Shook Up,” “Into the Woods,” “She Loves Me,” “Anything Goes,” “The Addams Family,” “9 to 5,” “The Sound of Music,” “Hello, Dolly!,” “Little Women,” “Bye Bye Birdie,” “The Wizard of Oz” and “Thoroughly Modern Milly,” and has also served as musical director for productions of “Beauty and the Beast” and “The Little Mermaid.” His work with Broadway Bound earned him recognition by the Tony Awards Committee for Excellence in Theater Education in 2015. Vojvodich holds a Bachelor of Music degree in Musical Theater from the University of Miami in Florida. Notable roles include “White Christmas” (Bob), “Les Miserables” (Javert), and “Little Shop of Horrors” (Seymour), and he also performed as a lead singer/vocal director for the Holland American Cruise Line for four years.
