Seneca Community Players Announces Auditions for Upstate Premiere of Barry Manilow’s ‘Copacabana’

“Her name was Lola…” The opening of Barry Manilow's Grammy award-winning hit song “Copacabana” is the inspiration for Seneca Community Players' new musical coming to Seneca Falls on August 1, in which Las Vegas revue meets Broadway show. “Copacabana” is an old-fashioned tale of love and jealousy.

Auditions will be held at the Smith Opera House on May 20 and 21. In addition to a large chorus, parts are available for three women and four men. Interested individuals should come ready to act, sing and dance but should not pre-prepare a song – music from the show will be provided. Participants should also bring a potential list of rehearsal conflict dates. Barry Manilow will not appear in this production.

Pam Rapoza (“Cabaret,” “You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown”) directs and choreographs the upstate New York premiere of this big budget spectacle at the Delavan Theatre on the New York Chiropractic College campus in Seneca Falls, August 1, 2, 3, 7, 8 and 9, 2003.

The Smith Opera House is located at 82 Seneca Street in Geneva. Call The Smith at 315-781 LIVE or Rapoza at 315-789-9501 for details.

Seneca Community Players' mission is to foster, arouse and help broaden the interest, availability and appreciation of the Theatre Arts in Seneca and the surrounding counties. SCP was formed in 1972 and provides area residents with opportunities to experience theatre as cast or production staff.

Over its 30-year history, SCP has established itself as the only year-round Seneca County group that continually offers and produces quality theatrical productions highlighted by an annual summer musical. These productions provide the opportunity for community members to engage in the creative process on-stage, back stage and the design process. Over the past several years, those participants have represented Seneca, Cayuga, Ontario, Wayne and Monroe counties.
