TREASURE COAST -

The Indian River State College performing and visual arts department is holding auditions for production of the musical "Ragtime," on Aug. 29 at 5 p.m. in the Wynne Black Box Theatre on the main campus located at 3209 Virginia Ave.in Fort Pierce.

"Ragtime" tells the story of three groups in the United States in the early 20th century; African-Americans, upper-class suburbanites and Eastern European immigrants.

"Ragtime" is an epic, turn-of the-century story of racial tension, love, family and hope in the American dream.

Historical figures such as Booker T. Washington, Harry Houdini, J.P. Morgan, Henry Ford and Adm. Robert Peary are represented in the performance. Because of the varied cultures represented in the show, "Ragtime" presents a unique performance opportunity for students around the ages of 18 to 30 from diverse backgrounds.

The audition will consist of a short vocal solo (16 measures of music) prepared by the student, followed by a short movement audition, which will be presented by the dance instructor.

Students should be comfortable with whatever they sing and bring a copy of the sheet music for the accompanist. Auditions with CDs or a cappella are not accepted.

For more information, call (772) 462-7727 or email rshearer@irsc.edu.
