Auditions for two summer musicals are planned for April 7-8 at the State Theatre Center for the Arts in Uniontown.

Auditions for two upcoming productions are planned April 7-8 at the State Theatre Center for the Arts, 37 E. Main St., Uniontown.

Summer at the State’s 2019 season will feature “Mamma Mia” and another musical to be announced.

Both productions will have ensemble casts of 30-35 actors, singers and dancers. Performers ages 14 and up are invited to audition for both productions.

Actors interested in auditioning should prepare 32 bars of a song in the style of either show and should bring sheet music in the correct key. An accompanist will be provided. Head shots and resumes are not required, but actors are encouraged to bring them if available.

Actors may be asked to dance, sing or read following the vocal auditions. They should bring comfortable clothing for the movement or dance audition, including jazz and tap shoes if available.

The “Mamma Mia” role of Donna has been cast, but all other roles are open.

The TBA musical requires a large male ensemble. Females with dance training and/or tumbling experience may be considered. There is one role for a male child ages 9-13.

Rehearsals for both productions will begin in late May. The TBA show will run July 12-14, and “Mamma Mia” will run July 26-28.

Both productions will be directed and choreographed by John Wagner. The TBA musical will be music directed by Michael Rozell. “Mamma Mia” will be music directed by Joseph Andria.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
