The Rangeley Friends of the Arts plan to hold open auditions for the RFA Summer Musical, “The Drowsy Chaperone,” from 1-3 p.m. Sunday, March 19.

The auditions will be held at the RFA Lakeside Theater, 2493 Main St.

Performances will take place July 27, 28, 30, and 31.

An epic “musical within a comedy,” this funny Tony Award-winner is a celebration of the American musical that harkens back to the jazz age of the 1920s, according to a news release from Diane Bellington with the Rangeley Friends of the Arts.

When a loyal fan shares a rare recording of his favorite musical, the characters come to life in a tale of love and delight. A wedding, gangsters disguised as pastry chefs, and a drunk chaperone are just a few of the ingredients in this farcical treat that is fun for the whole family, Bellington notes.

Audition forms, character descriptions, monologues and music for the audition can all be found by visiting and clicking on the “Get Involved” button at the top of the page.

The production team includes Director Erin Smith, Assistant Director Timothy Straub, Music Director Sue Downes-Borko, Accompanist Andrea Keirstead and Producers Millie Hoekstra and Valerie Zapolsky.
