About the Auditions

Mango Roses is a musical with a difference. The musical has a name and a basic story line. If you choose to audition, and if you are selected, you will be expected to contribute to the creation and refinement of the script and lyrics. Read more about this process in "Meet the Composer".

Auditions will take place on Saturday, 28th September, 2013 and will begin at 12:00 noon at Jazz Ville Bar and Restaurant in Bugolobi/

For this show, I need competent singers/actors and dancers who are willing to spend the entire first Sunday (28th September) working with me, the musicians, the writers, the dancers, and the artist as we give shape and refinement to the musical. The actor/singers will decide who sings what song, and the dancers will decide who dances and where. At the end of the day, Maryann and Kate will refine the lyrics and script and compose the music. The artist, Ronex Ahimbisibwe, will also be present at the workshop to allow the actors to contribute to one of his installation pieces custom created for this musical.

So, what will you need for the audition?

A prepared piece of music or dance. Keep in mind that the musical will be in the Broadway genre with an African pulse! So, if you have a Broadway tune, be ready to sing it. While Maryann can probably play anything you want to sing, you might want to give me a heads-up in email: and I will let her know so she can bring some score along from  New York.
Read through the CAST of CHARACTERS and get the gist of the story. And welcome aboard!
