CPT announces Auditions for
The Loush Sisters get HARD for the Holidays
Created by Liz Conway, Michael Seevers, Jr. & Beth Wood. Directed by Beth Wood.
Looking to cast…
4 – 6 funny people (over the age of 18) who can sing/carry a tune, move/shake their maracas, and don’t take themselves too seriously, to join the dysfunctional Loush Sisters. Specific characters will be created based on the actors cast.
About the play…
This holiday season, the infamous sisters are BACK! This time, taking matters into their own hands… wink wink. Join Holly and Jolly Loush (aka The Loush Sisters) for their deeply anticipated return to the stage in a bawdy, boozy, over-the-top holiday cabaret. Fueled by song, sidekicks and a hefty dose of “holiday cheer,” the Loush Sisters battle villains and attempt to avert disaster in this radical satirization of America’s favorite holiday classic… Die Hard.
About The Loush Sisters…
Originally created in 2003 for a Cleveland Public Theatre special event, The Loush Sisters have become a favorite of CPT audiences, performing in 2011 at Playhouse Square’s 14th Street Theatre and in 2013 and 2015 at CPT with The Loush Sisters DO the Nutcracker and The Loush Sisters Love Dick’ns to critical acclaim. The brain children of Liz Conway, Michael Seevers, Jr. and Beth Wood, The Sisters are an unapologetically raunchy, lounge-singing duo. (Imagine Saturday Night Live‘s Sweeney Sisters (1980’s) but raunchier & more inappropriate.)
About the process…
There may be a workshop period to develop material from September 16 – October 21. There may be 1 – 2 rehearsals a week during this period for some cast members.
Full rehearsals will begin on October 16 with 5 – 6 rehearsals a week. Performances are November 24 through December 17; Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays in CPT’s Gordon Square Theatre.
Sunday, July 9, 1:00pm – 3:30pm
Auditions are by appointment only and will be conducted in a group setting. Auditioners must attend the full session.
What to prepare…
- 16 bars of a POP song; bring sheet music in your key (a cappella and MP3 accompaniment are acceptable)
- Be ready to improvise as a member of the Loush Family
- Dress appropriately for shimming-ing and movement
- Bring your sense of humor and be prepared to play and have fun!
