2015 “Cabaret” auditions take place Sunday and Monday

— “Cabaret” offers a full week of hilarity, creativity and local talent. But where do those jokes and witty puns originate?

They start with the auditions, which will be held 4 p.m. Sunday and 6 p.m. Monday at the Chief Theater. It’s a chance for dancers, singers and actors to let their comedic self take over and help brainstorm skits and bring local characters to life.

Dates for the 2015 “Cabaret” are May 14, 15 and 16 with two shows nightly at the Chief.

“Anything that happens here in Steamboat that can be brought to light on stage is guaranteed to be up on that stage,” said Paula Salky, director of the local “Cabaret” production, which serves as a Steamboat Springs Arts Council fundraiser.

The annual mud season tradition gives locals the chance to laugh at inside jokes collected over the past year.

Anyone who wants to get involved is advised to bring an audition piece and to show up whether or not they have a skit idea for this year’s show.

Salky said that if someone does have skit ideas, he or she should have those typed up and ready for the directors and producers to run through and share with potential cast members.

“What makes a good ‘Cabaret’ actor is someone who has a great sense of humor, who is dependable, who doesn’t take herself too seriously and someone who enjoys collaborating with others,” Salky said. “But most importantly, it’s someone who wants to have fun but can take it seriously enough to give an amazing performance.”

All cast members must be available every evening May 9 through May 16 to rehearse the show before opening night.

“It’s a way for people in the community to get away from their daily routine and get creative,” Salky said.
