The Auburn Arts Commission will have auditions for its production of “I Love a Piano” on Sunday, June 23, from 4 to 6 p.m. at the Cupbearer coffee shop, 138 E. Seventh St., Auburn.

The cast includes four men and four women who can sing, act and dance. Actors should come prepared with a song and music. An accompanist will be provided. Sue Nelson, a teacher in DeKalb Eastern Community Schools, will direct the production with Dawn Prentice Yingling of Fort Wayne as the choreographer.

The arts commission is producing “I Love a Piano” in conjunction with its “Pianos on the Square” project this summer. Performances are scheduled for Aug. 9, 10 and 11 at the Cupbearer.

“I Love a Piano” salutes the music of Irving Berlin, from the 1910 sheet music shop through the decades of the Prohibition-era speakeasy, the Great Depression, the golden age of Hollywood, World War II to the post-war years of popular music. An old piano with one bad key is the thematic cable that weaves through the historical music vignettes.
Berlin’s 70-year career left its mark on Tin Pan Alley, Broadway, movies, TV commercials and the pre-rock ‘n’ roll era of popular music. He shined as a songwriter in an era that included Cole Porter, Duke Ellington and the Gershwin brothers as his peers.
