Auditions next week for Detroit Lakes Schools’ fall musical

Detroit Lakes Public Schools’ 2013 Fall Musical is “Crazy for You!”

Based on George and Ira Gershwin’s “Girl Crazy,” this romantic love musical is filled with the songs we love.

Through melodies and lyrics from “Nice Work If You Can Get It” and “Embraceable You” to the iconic “I Got Rhythm,” audiences will be entertained by this classic blend of song, dance, laughter, sentiment and showmanship.

The New York Times called it “Gershwin Gold” and audiences to this day agree. 

Auditions will be held Wednesday, Sept. 4 from 4:30 to 7 p.m. at Detroit Lakes High School; Thursday, Sept. 5 and Friday, Sept. 6 from 4:30 to 6 p.m. at the high school and 7 to 9:30 p.m. at the middle school; and Saturday, Sept. 7 from 9 a.m. to noon at the middle school.

Auditions are open to students in grades 8 through 12.

Full schedules including dance practices and audition materials will be available in the DLHS commons beginning Thursday, Aug. 29.

Performance dates are Nov. 1, 2, 7 and 8 at 7:30 p.m., and a 3 p.m. matinee on Sunday, Nov. 3. a

All performanceswill take place at the George Simson Auditorium inside Detroit Lakes Middle School.
