FMCT 2017-18 SEASON AUDITION INFORMATION
FMCT promises a fun, upbeat, and welcoming atmosphere throughout our audition and call-back process. We encourage everyone of all ages, race, and level of experience to audition. Our productions are chosen to both offer unique and challenging educational experiences for our actors as well as quality productions for our community.
When preparing for any of the auditions below, be sure to educate yourself about the show and about the characters for which you are auditioning. In doing this, you can either search on-line for individual productions to find previous cast lists, music videos, and script excerpts or you can come to The Stage at Island Park, home of FMCT, and check out a script. Those under the age of 18 must receive permission from a parent or guardian, and college students from the local universities must receive permission from their advisor or department chair before auditioning. If you are new to the audition process, you can contact us for guidance. For any questions about the productions or the audition process, please contact FMCT at (701) 235-1901.

AUDITIONS - Silver Follies 2018
Join the Silver Follies for their annual spring showcase on the FMCT stage! Directed by Bill Lucas, this year’s Follies performance takes on the theme Music & Mayhem for three performances. The program will include lively musical numbers, dance, and a short, scripted play-within-a-play whodunit entitled “A Murder Mystery”. Featuring performers aged 55+, Silver Follies demonstrates that performing is not only for the young, but also for the young at heart.
NEW! Auditions - Monday, April 23 from 5 - 8pm
A note about auditions: No preparation is necessary. Auditioners will be asked to perform a cold reading from the mystery script and to sing “Happy Birthday”. Those auditioning who wish to sing a song of their own choosing should perform no more than one verse of the song. Participants may elect to audition for the participation in just the acting ensemble, just the music ensemble, or both. All those who audition will be cast in the production.
Performances - Saturday, May 19 at 7:30pm
Sunday, May 20 at 2:00pm
Monday, May 21 at 7:30pm.
When Annie's husband John dies of leukemia, she and best friend Chris resolve to raise money for a new settee in the local hospital waiting room. They manage to persuade four fellow WI members to pose nude with them for an "alternative" calendar, with a little help from hospital porter and amateur photographer Lawrence. The news of the women's charitable venture spreads like wildfire, and hordes of press soon descend on the small village of Knapeley in the Yorkshire Dales. The calendar is a success, but Chris and Annie's friendship is put to the test under the strain of their new-found fame.
A word on nudity from the playwright: "As in the best traditions of vaudevillian fan dances, the art of the play’s nudity lies in what is withheld. The choreography of this sequence is best described as “fabulous concealment.” Should we see anything we oughtn’t, the whole scene will deflate like a soufflé on which the oven door has been opened too quickly."
