    Are there any parts that still need filling? I have years of musical training under my belt, including plays such as “My Fair Lady”- chorus/extra
    “Guys and Dolls”- part of one the gamblers throughout; dancing and singing in “Luck Be a Lady Tonight”
    “Kiss Me Kate”- Part of Gremio and
    “Fiddler On The Roof”- Part of Mendel, the Rabbi’s Son (Mendel is only a part in the play, not movie)

    I also trained with voice professionals while living in Las Vegas, and was selected to perform “Mack The Knife” in a Caesar’s Palace ballroom for charity.

    I had ten years of Piano, better at theory though, can sight sing, and know timing. Was also in Men’s Choir, All-state choir, Honor choir, and Madrigals (as my extracurricular- it was very exclusive and difficult to get in)

    I’m 6’2″ and thin, so dancing may take a lot of practice to get it as tight as my shorter cast mates, but I’m committed.

    I let you know all this to hopefully allow me to audition late if there’s any part open. I know most the music for Joseph, and whether I’m Elvis or a tree (I know Joseph and narrator takien), I’d love to audition. I can bring a zed card if I can find mine, but if no, ill bring whatever you ask. I hope there’s a chance for Joseph, but if not and u think I’d do well in an upcoming role, I can wait. Thanks for reading this essay of a comment!

  2. I am a musician who has just moved to Salt Lake City from California because my support system is here and I see it as a cultural place where I can thrive as a musician in the future. I am a career theatre musician who wants to begin networking with some of the theatres around the Salt Lake City Area. Although theatre has not yet emerged from COVID I feel it is important to begin reaching out even now. I know from past experience that productions are often organized far in advance. I imagine the necessity to organize in advance is even more important now.
    I would like to begin contacting artistic directors such as yourself, and if possible musical directors of theatres in this area. I know that musical directors for productions can differ because of the nature of the music, genre, etc and so on. I would appreciate any help in reaching out to musical directors for various future or past productions. I have experience playing in more than 100 different musical theatre productions not only as a violinist but as an accordionist, violist, and keyboard player as well.
    I am available to audition via a recording or in-person with safety precautions (masks etc. ). I am familiar with solos of various productions. Some of my violin performances have included: the Phantom of the Opera, Oliver, The Addams Family, Next to Normal, Always Patsy Cline, and The Last Five Years to name a few. Some examples of being featured on accordion have included: multiple productions of Fiddler on the Roof, La Cage aux Folles, My Fair Lady (adapted to include accordion), Spitfire grill, Spamalot, and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. Examples of my experience performing viola in theatre include Candide, Sweeney Todd, Into the Woods, and You’re a Goodman Charlie Brown,
    I believe that live theatre is an essential part of our lives and I would like to continue to help bring theatre to audiences. From what I’ve seen and heard the Salt Lake City theatre is an important and vital part of the Salt Lake experience. Theatre is even more important in these current conditions albeit with adjustments.
    I am including a resume that includes many musical director referrals from California you can contact who will vouch for me as we all wait on standby together looking forward to the day when we can once again bring live theatres to audiences everywhere.
