STAMFORD, Conn. -- Actors and actresses are wanted for auditions for The Sterling Farms Theatre Complex's upcoming production of "Bonnie and Clyde."
"Bonnie and Clyde" is a new musical with music by Frank Wildhorn, lyrics by Don Black and a book by Ivan Menchell. It will be directed by George Croom with music direction by Eric Johnston.
Auditions will take place from 7-9 p.m. Sept. 14-15 at The Sterling Farms Theatre Complex, 1349 Newfield Ave., Stamford.
The musical centers on Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow, the ill-fated lovers and outlaws whose story has been infamous since they achieved folk-hero status in the Great Depression. Wildhorn describes the music as a “non-traditional score, combining rockabilly, blues and gospel.” The musical debuted on Broadway in 2011.
The score includes the songs “How ‘Bout a Dance?” “When I Drive,” “This World Will Remember Us” and “Dyin’ Ain’t So Bad.”
