Auditions will be held Saturday, beginning at 10 a.m. at Mercy Academy, 5801 Fegenbush Lane in Louisville, Ky. for playwright Mike Smith's new musical "When Jenny Lind Was Here."
Bill Breuer, a native of New York City and longtime resident of Louisville and Canada, is the director. Lynne Chenault of Shelbyville, Ky. is the musical director. The play will take place the weekend of Oct. 12 at Fitzgibbon Hall on the Hanover College campus and will be brought to Louisville for a full run next spring.
The production is a history-based, mid-1800s musical about the famed singer Jenny Lind, also known as "The Swedish Nightingale." The story is fiction based on factual events pertaining to her 1851 concerts in Louisville and Madison.
Actors will be asked to do a reading from the script. Ability to do accents will be considered. Singers need to be prepared to demonstrate a 90-second vocal.
