At the top of the hour, choreographer Joseph Favalora will teach the steps to the group and afterward the group will be broken up into smaller ones to practice.

  • What to Prepare:

Since this is a dance-heavy musical, we are holding dance auditions first and foremost, and acting auditions will follow later on.

This means those who would like to audition need only to wear comfortable clothing and non-slip shoes and be prepared to learn choreography. All those attending are required to bring a resume and headshot to the audition.

The dances will also be sent to auditioners a week prior to the audition to get acquainted with the material.

Audition for Million Dollar Quartet - Sam Phillips

6th Street Playhouse will be seeing Adult actor/singers for the role of Sam Phillips in its musical Million Dollar Quartet, which runs in the G.K. Hardt Theatre from February 22 – March 17, 2019

In 1956 a twist of fate brought Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins, and Elvis Presley together for one unforgettable night. Step inside the recording studio to witness hits like “Blue Suede Shoes,” “Great Balls of Fire,” “Hound Dog,” and “Whole Lotta Shakin’ Goin’ On” being recorded for posterity.

The audition will be held in the Rehearsal Room at 6th Street Playhouse, located at 52 W. 6th Street, Unit B, Santa Rosa, CA 95401

What is the role?
Sam Phillips mid 20's to mid 30s male. Father of Rock 'n Roll and founder of Sun Records who discovered Elvis, Johnny, Jerry and Carl, and many others including Roy Orbison and B.B. King. A charismatic figure in American music. Sam is a businessman with a wry sense of humor and intelligence that hide behind his good ‘ol boy demeanor. He trusts his gut instincts and they are often right. A strong actor and storyteller, Sam breaks the 4th wall with the audience and drives the pace of the show. 

He has an Alabama dialect, but must move the text. He's the story teller, the engine of the show and the conduit for the audience relationship. Reverent but sure, colloquial but with intelligence and finesse. Sam Phillips is in command and rarely is he unsure of himself or his decisions. He's shrewd, but really cares about the music and his boys.  

What to Prepare?
Actor/Singers wishing to be considered for this role should be prepared to read from the sides provided and have them memorized as best as possible prior to the audition. An updated Headshot and Resume’ is required.
