Upstage Theater

Follies Auditions

The Weissman Girls, each with their own fractured past, reunite in their crumbling Broadway theater, scheduled for imminent demolition. Through reminiscing their days on the stage, reigniting old memories proves to be endearing. Yet, against this atmosphere of drunken remembrances, a decades-old love quadrangle receives a precarious revival when Follies dancers Sally and Phyllis, and their respective husbands, Buddy and Ben meet again. A glamorous and fascinating peek into a bygone era, and a clear-eyed look at the transformation of relationships over time, this Sondheim masterpiece is surreal, heart wrenching, and uniquely powerful. 

Auditions will be held on Saturday, December 3rd, and Callbacks on December 4th. 

Please arrive 10 minutes prior to your audition slot to allow time to fill out an information form and conflict calendar.
