The timeless enchantment of a magical fairy tale is reborn with the Rodgers & Hammerstein hallmarks of originality, charm and elegance. Originally presented on television in 1957 starring Julie Andrews, it has been adapted for the stage, with great warmth and more than a touch of hilarity, the hearts of children and adults alike still soar when the slipper fits. This classic tale features Rodgers & Hammerstein’s most beloved songs, including “In My Own Little Corner,” “Impossible/It’s Possible” and “Ten Minutes Ago.”
WHAT WILL AUDITIONS BE LIKE?
You will sign in and fill out an audition form to tell us about yourself. Don’t worry if you’ve never done this before — experience isn’t required. A script and music will be given to you at the auditions. You will be asked to read from the script, sing and learn a few dance steps, along with others who are auditioning. You do not need to attend both audition nights. Children ages 8-14 will audition first at 6 p.m. Auditions for actors age 15 and above will begin at approximately 7 p.m.
WHAT ROLES ARE AVAILABLE?
There are many roles available for adults of various ages. There are only a handful of roles for children. Children must be at least age 8 to audition.
WHEN ARE REHEARSALS?
Not long after auditions, rehearsals will be scheduled weeknights, with some weekend involvement closer to the performance dates, which are June 15, 16, 17, 18(M), 21, 22, 23, 24 & 25(M).
WHAT ELSE CAN I DO?
ACT is a nonprofit, volunteer organization providing quality theatre and entertainment for our community. If you’re not interested in being on stage, there are plenty of opportunities to volunteer in other ways, such as backstage crew, building and painting sets, costumes, props, lights, sound, usher or in the box office.
