Centenary announces auditions for Stephen Sondheim's "Company"

SHREVEPORT, LA — The Singers’ Workshop at Centenary College’s Hurley School of Music and the Marjorie Lyons Playhouse will team up to present Stephen Sondheim’s Company April 4-7, 2019. Hurley Artist in Residence Cindy Sadler will direct with Adam Philley as music director.

Company opens with Robert, a confirmed bachelor, contemplating his unmarried state on the night of his 35th birthday. Over the course of a series of dinners, drinks, and a wedding, his friends explain the pros and cons of taking on a spouse, and Robert is forced to question his devotion to bachelorhood during a hilarious array of interactions. The brisk and energetic score includes some of Sondheim’s best known songs, including “Being Alive,” “Ladies Who Lunch,” and “Another Hundred People.”

Auditions for Company will be held Friday, September 14, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. and Saturday, September 15, from 2:00 to 5:00 p.m. in Anderson Auditorium at the Hurley School of Music. Auditions are open to Centenary students, faculty, and staff, and are by appointment only. Interested students should review the audition information available at centenary.edu/company and make an audition appointment by contacting Cindy Sadler at csadler@centenary.edu.

Sadler will host a free audition workshop on Sunday, September 9, from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. in Anderson Auditorium. The workshop will offer tips and techniques for those auditioning for Company and other upcoming shows. To register, please send an email to csadler@centenary.edu.
