Auditions for 'Rocky Horror Show' Slated
College of the Canyons is holding auditions for its presentation of the Rocky Horror Show, which will rock the stage during the month of October in the Performing Arts Center.
Auditions will be held from noon to 4 p.m. on Saturday, August 26 and from 6 to 10 p.m. on Wednesday, August 30.
Singers, dancers and Rocky Horror fans are encouraged to audition for roles. Music from the show will be available in the College of the Canyons library for those who wish to prepare beforehand.
"Each year of our musical theatre program we find more and more talented people at COC and in our community," said Mark Salyer, who will be directing the show. "I think this show will attract a lot of singers and actors who maybe wouldn't normally audition for a musical."
From its US debut in 1974 at Los Angeles' The Roxy to the cult classic movie, The Rocky Horror Show has become a rite of passage for American audiences, and on October 21, opening night, Santa Clarita will have its first Rocky Horror experience.
"We are planning an amazingly innovative production of Rocky Horror. Brodie Steele's set design is incredible," Salyer said. "We're going to have a great show."
Those given roles in the show will need to register for a theatre and music course at College of the Canyons.
