Fontana, Calif.– Fire up those vocal cords and get ready to audition for the Razzle Dazzle Senior Theater Group production of the Fats Waller musical Ain’t Misbehavin. Auditions for Seniors 55+ throughout the area will be held Thursday, August 25th from 1 p.m – 3 p.m and Friday, August 26th from 1 p.m. – 3 p.m. at the Fontana Community Senior Center located at 16710 Ceres Avenue, Fontana, CA 92335.

The Fontana Community Senior Center is ready to groove its way to another stellar production put on by the Razzle Dazzle Senior Theater Group. Their next performance Ain’t Misbehavin’ is planned for December 2016. If you have ever felt the urge to stretch your acting chops on a stage in front of a live audience, now is your chance. “The goal of the Senior Center is to provide programs, services, and events that get seniors out of their homes and engrained in the community,” said Community Services Supervisor Tiffany Starks. “These productions do that not only for the performers on stage, but also for the audience members that come to the auditorium to see actors that they can relate to.”
The final production in December 2016 will be held at the Steelworker’s Auditorium, a 332 seat, state-of-the-art performing arts venue located next to the Lewis Library & Technology Center. Show participants will have the opportunity to act, sing and dance in front of a live audience including family, friends and members of the Fontana community.Ain’t Misbehavin’ will be an evening of rowdy, raunchy and humorous songs that encapsulates the various moods of an era. The original production netted Nell Carter (star of the hit sitcom Gimme a Break) a Tony Award in 1978.
Please note that participants are required to sign a waiver to audition. Individuals cast in the production must sign up for a center membership in order to act or participate in the final production. Production needs include on-stage actors, singers and dancers, stage managers, script managers, set builders, stage hands, house (audience) managers.
