We will be auditioning to fill chorus roles for Frank Loesser's great masterpiece,  "The Most Happy Fella."  Written in 1956, the piece enjoyed a successful Broadway run of 676 performances and has since been revived in 1959, 1979 and 1992, and was produced by New York City Opera in 2006.  Most recently, it received a production in 2014 on the New York Encore Series starring Laura Benanti and Cheyenne Jackson.

Rehearsals begin September 13.  Performances October 11-13 and 18-20.  Chorus will be called on weekday evenings; and weekend mornings, afternoons and evenings.
