The Winston-Sales Theatre Alliance is seeking a male pianist/vocalist and a male electric bass guitarist/vocalist to fill a couple of open slots in one of its summer shows, KING MACKEREL AND THE BLUES ARE RUNNING (see more information on the show below). This show was written by the PUMP BOYS AND DINETTES creators, and it’s the exact same style. The actors are musicians who sing a lot and talk a lot; the musicians have to be comfortable with dialogue.
It’s set on the Carolina Coast, and it’s a lot of fun---really leaves the audience with a feel of a mini-vacation!
It is a PAYING gig. Contact Jamie with your interest as soon as possible: (336) 508-1312 or at email@example.com://www.facebook.com/l/af37f;rr.com
Dates: July 30, 31, August 5, 6, 7 at 8 PM and August 1 and 8 at 2 PM, with a potentially added third weekend of August 12, 13, 14 at 8 PM and August 15 at 2 PM. Rehearsals begin June 1. Performances at Theatre Alliance, 1047 Northwest Blvd., Winston-Salem.
King Mackerel & the Blues Are Running
(Songs and Stories of the Carolina Coast)
Bland Simpson and Jim Wann with Don Dixon and J.L. Mills.
Tall tales and rollicking songs in the Diamond Studs and Pump Boys and Dinettes tradition transport audiences to the Outer Banks for a pleasant spate of fun and fishing. Staging a benefit concert to save the Corncake Inlet Inn, the lively cast of fishermen musicians sing up a storm, tell fish stories and ghost stories, and relate accounts of first loves and ones that got away.
