Elmhurst Children's Theatre Auditions for 'Anything Goes'
We are excited to announce auditions for our Fall Show, Anything Goes! First produced in 1934, Anything Goes features music and lyrics by the legendary Cole Porter. It was reprised on Broadway just last year and won 3 Tony Awards, including Best Revival of a Musical. We are very excited to bring this production to Elmhurst - its sure to be a lot of fun with a large cast and opportunities for many to be involved!

Children in 5th-8th Grade who live in Elmhurst or attend a school in Elmhurst are eligible to audition. Check our Audition Poster for further details.
For your audition, prepare up to 32 bars of a song in the style of the show (a cappella). Also prepare a short memorized monologue of your choosing or from a selection of
Audition Sides selected by our Director, Jason Sperling, from the script of Anything Goes. Review the Character Descriptions here. Pick pieces that show you off well, whether or not they are from Anything Goes.
