It’s not too late for you to shine at The Players Guild of Leonia!
Auditions for the 1955 Tony award-winning musical The Pajama Game will be held on Thursday, August 27th at 7:30 pm and on Saturday, August 29th at 10 am. The auditions will be held at Civil War Drill Hall Theater, 130 Grand Avenue, Leonia, NJ.
The Pajama Game is a musical based on the novel 7½ Centsby Richard Bissell. The story deals with labor troubles in a pajama factory, where workers demands for a seven-and-a-half cent raise are going unheeded. In the midst of this ordeal, love blossoms between Babe, the grievance committee head, and Sid, the new factory superintendent.
The energetic score by Richard Adler and Jerry Ross includes such popular songs as “I’m Not At All in Love,” “Hey There,” “Hernando’s Hideaway,” “There Once Was a Man,” and “Steam Heat.” Featuring plenty of fun and splashy production numbers, including a comic “dream ballet,” this theater-goers’ favorite is what the critics called “a sure-fire crowd-pleaser” and a “glowing example of solid, classic musical comedy.”
There are plenty of roles in this show including a chorus of factory workers. So brush off your ballad and up-tempo and break a leg!
