'Hollywood in Fullerton' will be a rhythm & blues revue
The Fox Fullerton Historic Theatre Foundation is announcing open auditions for its original June 23 show, Hollywood in Fullerton, presented by MAV TV, “Blues Brothers Save the Fox, A Rhythm & Blues Revue.” Auditions will take place on Saturday, May 12 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Fullerton High School.
The live stage show performance is seeking local talent with enough soul to perform the parts of the eccentric Jake and Elwood Blues, co-stars, dancers, singers and more.
Written by local theater professional Brian Newell, the script pays homage to the blues with a show-stopping combination of comedy, music and dynamic performances.
Everyone is invited to audition. RSVP is not required. Those interested should show up as early as possible.
Hollywood in Fullerton is Fox Theatre’s seventh gala fundraiser event, with all contributions benefitting the restoration of the Historic Fox Theatre Complex in downtown Fullerton. The June 23 show will be one of the first live shows to be performed inside the Historic Fox Fullerton Theatre since 1987.
