Theatre Unchained will hold auditions for the Milwaukee premiere of the hit musical “SPAMALOT” and three more hilarious episodes of the popular BBC sitcom “FAWLTY TOWERS” on Tuesday and Wednesday, July 9 & 10 from 7pm to 10pm. Callbacks will be on Thursday, July 11 from 7pm to 10pm.

“SPAMALOT” will perform September 6 – 22(possible Extension) and “Fawlty Towers” will run October 11 – November 10(possible extension).  Rehearsals for both shows will be primarily weekday evenings, some weekends. Please prepare a short monologue and bring a headshot and resume if you have one. If you do not have a monologue, be prepared to read from sides of the script. If you are auditioning for “Spamalot”, please prepare 16 bars of a song in the style of the show. Also, be prepared to dance. You may audition for both shows, if you desire, and potentially be cast in both shows. Rehearsals for “Spamalot” will begin on Monday, July 15. Rehearsals for “Fawlty Towers” will begin on September 9. The rehearsals will not overlap.

Two minutes from Downtown in the Walkers Point district!

Monty Python’s Spamalot is a musical comedy “lovingly ripped off from” the 1975 film Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Like the film, it is a highly irreverent parody of the Arthurian Legend, but it differs from the film in many ways.
