Dress for the 1920's and join us for live music by prohibition-era jazz band "Mutiny in the Parlor" during the cocktail reception at TCR's Curtain Raiser!  A fun time with drinks, snacks, and all of your friends at TCR!

A little about "Mutiny in the Parlor" ...Mutiny in the Parlor plays prohibition-era jazz, swing, and parlor tunes -- songs that spun on your great-grandmother's Victrola while she and the other flappers danced the Charleston. Smooth as silk and occasionally naughty as moonshine, Mutiny's sweet melodies, spirited improvisation, and rousing vocal stylings will transport you to another era!

Please bring 30 seconds of a song to sing that shows off your voice and acting ability. Sheet music is preferred, but CD / mp3 accompaniment is acceptable. You will be asked to read from the script. In addition, bring an accurate list of all evening and weekend conflicts for September and October. Callbacks will be Tuesday, September 3 from 6:00 – 8:30 pm.  To schedule an audition, complete and submit the audition form  at Walk ups are welcome.

Monty Python’s Spamalot will be performed October 25 – November 3, 2013 at the Coralville Center for the Performing Arts.
