A need for vocal rest has prompted Harrison’s Halle Mastroberardino to step down from the title role in Archbishop Stepinac’s production of “Evita” in late April.
Stepinac, an all-boys Catholic high school in White Plains, recruits actresses from across the area to fill its award-winning musicals. They’ll hold auditions Friday to find a new first lady of Argentina.
Here are the details:
OPEN CALL for the role of EVA PERON in the musical EVITA
Audition: 3:30 p.m. Friday, March 22 in the school’s Major Bowes Theater, 950 Mamaroneck Ave., White Plains, 10605
Auditioners should be prepared to sing from the score.
To sign up for an audition time, email director Frank Portanova at firstname.lastname@example.org
The show dates are April 26, 27; May 3, 4 ,5; Rehearsals are usually Sundays through Thursdays.
Producer Keith Sunderland, ever the optimist, is hoping for some magic at Friday’s audition, pointing out that it is the 65th birthday of the show’s composer, Andrew Lloyd Webber.
