Auditions for “A Fabulous 50’s Christmas” and “Adrift in Macao”

Fabulous-50s-ChristmasThe Towle Theater, Hammond’s premiere theater destination, is seeking strong singers & actors for two upcoming non-equity productions.

The Towle will be holding three rounds of auditions, one in Chicago on Saturday, September 7 from 1pm – 5pm at Theater Wit, 1229 Belmont Ave in Chicago; and two nights of local auditions at the Towle Theater, 5205 Hohman Avenue, Hammond, IN on Sunday, September 8 and Monday, September 9 at 7pm.

A Fabulous 50’s Christmas pays homage to the Perry Como and Andy Williams' Christmas specials of the 1950’s & 60’s complete with original vocal arrangements and commercials from the era.

Adrift in Macao is a loving parody of film noir movies. Everyone that comes to Macao is waiting for something, and though none of them know exactly what that is, they hang around to find out. The characters include your film noir standards, like Laureena, the curvaceous blonde, who luckily bumps into Rick Shaw, the cynical surf and turf casino owner her first night in town. And don't forget about Mitch, the American who has just been framed for murder by the mysterious villain McGuffin.
