“Be our guest” and step into the enchanted world of Broadway’s modern classic. The story tells of Belle, a young woman in a provincial town, and the Beast, a young prince trapped under the spell of an enchantress. If the Beast can learn to love and be loved, the curse will end. If the Beast does not learn his lesson soon, he and his household will be doomed for all eternity. This “tale as old as time” is filled with spectacular costumes and is musical theatre at its best.
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 will be given to you at auditions. You can also request a perusal script before auditions at firstname.lastname@example.org. 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 6:30 p.m. Auditions for actors age 15 and above will begin at approximately 7:30 p.m.
WHAT ROLES ARE AVAILABLE?
There are many roles available for men and women of various ages. There is also one primary child role and a few other opportunities for children to be cast as townspeople. Children must be at least age 8 to audition.
WHEN ARE REHEARSALS?
Beginning in May, rehearsals will be scheduled weeknights, with some weekend involvement closer to the performance dates, which are July 12, 13, 14, 15(M), 18, 19, 20, 21(M) and 21.
WHAT ELSE CAN I DO?
ACT is a non-profit, 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. If you are interested in volunteering or would like more information about auditions, contact email@example.com.
