How does Sonoma State University find the best singers, actors and dancers for their musical productions?
That I can tell you in one word: “Tradition.”
Sonoma State University is conducting auditions for the school’s 50th anniversary production of the Bock and Harnick classic, “Fiddler on the Roof.”
The auditions are open to the community to find the best singing, acting and dancing talent that Sonoma County has to offer.
Anyone who is interested in participating is invited to audition on Aug. 25 and 27.
Those who are auditioning should bring two songs and one contemporary monologue. An accompanist will be provided.
There are openings for ten women, eleven men, four specialty male dancers and a mixed chorus.
