Auditions

VLOG produces a wide variety of events of many different genres: cabarets, musicals, straight plays and staged readings. The exact mix in any given calendar year depends in large part upon the interests and inclination of its membership.

Our main stage productions generally tend toward fully staged classical and contemporary Broadway musical theater, as well as operettas of Gilbert & Sullivan and the like.

Our cabarets and smaller performances are held in less formal, more intimate settings and are intended to showcase our members’ vocal talents.

Although VLOG is a non-Equity, membership company, auditions for all roles, including all principal roles, are open to everyone. Once cast, all performers are required to become dues-paid members of VLOG.

All events are cast only from those who attend an audition in person – pictures and resumes are not accepted by mail or any other method.

Please note that none of our performers are paid since we are a volunteer company.

Ensemble rehearsals are usually held two evenings during the week, with additional rehearsals for principals scheduled at other times.

VLOG always welcomes backstage and offstage volunteers. If you are interested in participating in a non-performing capacity you are encouraged to come to any audition night to let us know your interests and to meet with members of the company. If you have any other questions about VLOG, please feel free to use our contact page. Thank you for your interest in The Village Light Opera Group and we look forward to meeting you!

Curtains is parody of 1950s “whodunnit” mysteries where Lieutenant Frank Cioffi investigates a series of murders that take place behind the scenes of the cowboy musical, Robbin’ Hood. The company and crew are forced to stay inside the theater while Lieutenant Cioffi finds the killer, becomes involved with the show, and falls in love. It features adult, young adult, and mature adult characters.
