The Bodyguard Auditions

Sat. Jan. 25 @ 2:00pm

Sun. Jan. 26 @ 2:00pm

Director - John Rampage

Choreographer - Christine Yasunaga

Musical Director - Darcie Yoshinaga

The Bodyguard is a celebration of Whitney Houston’s music and what a celebration it is! The show features a host of irresistible classics including Queen of the Night, So Emotional, One Moment in Time, Saving All My Love, I Wanna Dance with Somebody and one of the biggest selling songs of all time - I Will Always Love You

When superstar star Rachel Marron is threatened by a stalker, her worried manager hires ace security expert Frank Farmer as her personal bodyguard. Frank has little interest in protecting a coddled celebrity. Rachel, in turn, has little use for her macho protector, who cramps her style with his endless restrictions on her movements. Each expects to be in charge; what they don’t expect is to fall in love. 

Show runs March 20 - April 12, 2020

CAST BREAKDOWN 

Though The Bodyguard is a musical, featuring the songs of Whitney Houston, there are several major roles for men that require no singing or dance ability, except briefly in the finale.
