Auditions for barbershop musical The Fabulous Lipitones
Location: San Diego, CA
The Fabulous Lipitones, A Barbershop Musical By John Markus and Mark St. Germain. Original Music by Randy Courts.
Original Lyrics by Mark St. Germain. Show directed by Grant Gelvin, Musical Direction: Allan Webb & Royce Ferguson.
What happens when a barbershop quartet loses a key member to a heart-stopping high B-flat? The three surviving members are scrambling to find a tenor before a national competition. When they hear golden tones being sung over the phone at an autobody shop, the three Lipitones left are sure they have their fourth…but when they meet him in person, he’s not quite what they expected. An uproarious comedy that puts a fusty American musical genre into today’s globalized, sensationalistic world.
The Fabulous Lipitones made its world premiere in 2013.
7 pm, Sunday, January 3, and Monday January 4, at the Escondido Arts Partnership (214 East Grand, Escondido – 1 block from Patio Playhouse). Callbacks – Wednesday January 6.
