Drama Dock announces a new Vashon-created full-length musical play, “Winghaven Park,” to be performed next summer, 2020 at Vashon Center for the Arts. Auditions are scheduled for the first two Saturdays in November for singers and actors eager to take to the VCA stage in a dreamscape of a show set in a small island community during World War II. Are you eager to audition for a truly beautiful story and musical play? “Winghaven Park” is written by Islanders Lisa Peretti (book, music, lyrics) and film composer Jason Staczek (music, lyrics). The songs draw on the diverse musical palette of the 1940s – swing, blues, ballads, musical comedy – with a balance of songs and spoken dialogue. The story is about the consequences of war and forgotten love in a rural island setting, with a wide-ranging cast of characters who find resilience through love and hope. “Winghaven Park” is directed by Charlotte Tiencken.
Parts are available for men and women, ages 10 and up. Auditions are 4-6 pm, Saturdays Nov. 2 and Nov. 9 at Vashon Methodist Church with callbacks on Sunday, Nov. 10. Scripts are available for an on-site preview and read at Vashon Library. Please come prepared with one up-tempo song to sing, not more than one minute, and one monologue (not Shakespeare) not more than two minutes. An accompanist will be provided. Interested performers are encouraged to sign up for an audition time slot through the following link:
Rehearsals for “Winghaven Park” begin in April. Performances run June 25-July 3, 2020 at VCA. For those unable to make the November auditions, another opportunity is in March in Seattle at Theatre Puget Sound’s General Auditions.
