UPDATE 12/1/10, 4:37PM:  Senior Nick Olson has been cast as King Arthur.

 

Today, University of Dallas students displayed their vocal talents as students auditioned for the spring musical, Camelot.  While there are non-vocal acting roles, dancing roles, and behind the scenes roles to be filled, this afternoon focused on finding the vocal talent needed to successfully put on the show.  This show marks the 3rd spring musical since they were brought back by the music department in 2009, after a brief hiatus.

NOTE: Current Fall Romers will be given the opportunity to audition at the beginning of the Spring semester.

UD seniors and musical veterans, Rachel Davies and Lacy de la Garza are excited as they gear up for their last UD show.  Each of them were optimistic about the upcoming production

Rachel Davies, who starred as Laurie in last spring’s musical, Oklahoma! gave her thoughts on this year’s auditions:

It’s so exciting to get to see some of the new talent. There were several really talented freshman. Can’t wait to see how the casting goes; it should be a lot of fun!

With Rachel’s experience and talent, I expect to see her in a lead role for Camelot, as well.

Lacy de la Garza choreographed Oklahoma! and will also be aiding director, Jamie Nelson with this year’s Camelot.  Lacy is also excited about the upcoming show’s cast:

For Camelot in particular, I’m definitely looking forward to working with the wide-pool of talent we have this year.

It looks like both seniors are confident that not only will this year’s show be great, but that they will leave the Music Department’s refound tradition in good hands with a talented new crop of underclassmen participating.
