Auditions set for Curtain Call’s 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 S. Croom with music direction by Eric K. Johnston. Auditions will take place at The Sterling Farms Theatre Complex, 1349 Newfield Avenue, Stamford, on Monday and Tuesday, Sept. 14 and 15, from 7-9 p.m.

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 starring Laura Osnes and Jeremy Jordan. The score includes great tunes like “How ‘Bout a Dance?”, “When I Drive”, “This World Will Remember Us”, “Dyin’ Ain’t So Bad” and many more. “This is the first area production since the Broadway production so we’re very excited to be working on this great new show,” said Curtain Call executive director, Lou Ursone.

Bonnie and Clyde will play weekends in The Kweskin Theatre from Nov. 13 to Dec. 12. Rehearsals begin Monday, Sept. 21.
