  • Vocal auditions
    Midwest Regional Ballet of Joplin and the American Opera Studio of Kansas City will have vocal auditions at 7:30 p.m. at Pittsburg Memorial Auditorium for two upcoming performances.
    “The Macabre,” a collection of dark operas, ballet and aerial performance, will be presented Oct. 26 and 27 in Pittsburg Memorial Auditorium.
    “Cats,” based on the hit Andrew Lloyd Webber show that ran on Broadway for 27 years, is set for April 18 - 21 at Pittsburg Memorial Auditorium.
    Dr. Bill Hall, director of the American Opera Studio, will act as vocal director of both shows, and Kaye Lewis, MRB director, will be director of choreography and staging.
    Auditions will be for both shows. Vocalists will need to  do stage movement, but not full choreography. Those wishing to audition for only one show should bring a vocal piece that fits the genre of the show. Vocalists interested in doing both shows will need to bring two songs to sing, one for each genre. An accompanist will be available.
