El Dorado Musical Theatre holds auditions for ’42nd Street’

El Dorado Musical Theatre held auditions Monday night for the classic Broadway musical, "42nd Street". Set in 1933, "42nd Street" tells the story of a chorus girl, Peggy Sawyer, who gets the chance to become a leading lady after the fading diva, Dorothy Brock, is injured before opening night of her Broadway show.

Fresh off their multiple Elly Award wins and their critically acclaimed production of "Disney’s Beauty and the Beast", El Dorado Musical Theatre drew a crowd of 53 local actors and actress, all between the ages of 13 and 22.

Don’t let age fool you. El Dorado Musical Theatre is far from your run-of-the-mill youth theatre group. Many of the performers are seasoned professionals, who even have a couple of Elly Awards under their belts. Whether they were belting out a showtune or tap dancing flawlessly, the talent of many auditionees was apparent. The feeling within the audition room was serious and professional. Even those not auditioning could feel the tension, as well as the focus of the performers.

El Dorado Musical Theatre director and choreographer Debbie Wilson and music director Jennifer Martin will have a large selection of talented teens and young adults to choose from. Luckily for them, callbacks on Tuesday will help them narrow the search for their leading characters. Till then, those called back will no doubt be running scenes, brushing up on their tap combinations, and learning their music in the hopes of being the one to get the part.
