The Pajama Game

The Pajama Game

Geoids Musical Theatre is delighted to announce auditions for our upcoming musical The Pajama Game!

The Pajama Game is an all-American musical comedy based on the 1953 novel 7½ Cents by Richard Bissell, set largely at Sleep Tite, a small-town pajama factory (hence the show’s title!). At its heart we find a socially conscious message about workers’ rights, the factory floor vs. the big boss, and a strong cast of characters willing to do what it takes to win the right to fair pay. In the midst of the strike, romance blossoms between well-loved employee Babe Williams and new factory superintendent Sid Sorokin. With two headstrong characters on opposite sides of the tensions at Sleep Tite, the relationship is bound to be a rollercoaster ride! With other key characters entangled in their own love woes and a strong ensemble shaping the narrative throughout, there really is something for everyone!

Each auditionee will need to sing, dance and act. For some characters, dancing is not essential but we would like to see how everyone moves, to give us a clear idea of the different levels of dance ability we have in our cast. We’re really looking for people who can act whilst dancing, so focus on selling it!

Please don’t be nervous about dancing, our lovely choreographer Cara has designed a routine that’s accessible for everyone!

There may be an opportunity for featured dance sections for advanced dancers within numbers in the show. We will recall dancers for a more advanced dance audition if they have selected this option on their form. This will he held on Sun 22nd alongside other principal recalls. ’We’d like to stress that this is open to both genders, as we’ll need some advanced male dancers too! Please note: All girls auditioning for Gladys will need to take part in the advanced dancer audition.

There will be ten-minute individual slots either side of the dance call, meaning you will either sing and act before dancing, or dance before singing and acting. Please contact our Company Manager Katie at the main Pajama Game email address with any questions.

YOU MUST EMAIL TO REQUEST AN AUDITION SLOT.

Please email pajamagame@geoidsmt.co.uk with your first and second choice of audition session. Once your slot is confirmed, you will be emailed the audition materials (music and reading excerpts) to prepare, and a form to fill in and bring to the audition.
