Gualala Arts Theater is proud to announce its 2016 musical production of La Cage aux Folles, directed by Teo Ariola with musical direction by Don Krieger. Show Dates: July 22, 23, 24 and 29, 30, 31, 2016.
La Cage aux Folles is a musical with a book by Harvey Fierstein, lyrics and music by Jerry Herman. Based on the 1973 French play of the same name by Jean Poiret, it focuses on a gay couple.
Georges, the manager of a Saint-Tropez nightclub featuring drag entertainment, and Albin, his romantic partner and star attraction, and the farcical adventures that ensue when Georges’ son, Jean-Michel, brings home his fiancé’s ultra-conservative parents to meet them. La cage aux folles literally means “the cage of mad women.” However folles is also a slang term for effeminate homosexuals (queens).
Auditions are open to anyone interested in playing a role: singing and non-singing roles for women, men and older mature youth.
Production crew is also needed: set designers, builders, artists, painters, costumers and backstage crew. No previous experience is necessary.
