Upcoming Youth Auditions

Harry Potter and Obnoxious Voice ~ The SsssPOOF Musical

Adapted by Jeanette Jaquish.

The series chronicles the adventures of a young wizard, Harry Potter, and his friends Ronald Weasley and Hermione Granger, all of whom are students at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Harry and his friends struggle to overcome the Dark wizard Lord Voldemort, who aims to become immortal, and destroy all those who stand in his way, especially Harry Potter. A crowd-pleasing celebration of a modern literary classic.

Ruthless!

Ruthless!
Book and Lyrics by Joel Paley
Music by Marvin Laird

Director: Michelle Davis
Music Director: Spencer Stephens

This is not a youth production. This is a main stage adult musical, but we are seeking one, possibly two, female youth performers.

Judy Denmark, the quintessential housewife, is the mother of talented eight-year-old Tina. Tina Denmark knows she was born to play Pippi Longstocking, and she will do anything to win the part in her school musical. Anything includes murdering the leading lady! What wouldn’t a mother do for her perfect child? That is until the tables turn, and Judy discovers talent of her own. This aggressively outrageous musical farce garnered rave reviews during its long Off-Broadway run.

Email Michelle Davis for more information and to schedule an audition.

Audition Dates:
Saturday May 9th 12pm-6pm
Sunday May 10 6pm-10pm
Monday May 18th 7pm-10pm – Callbacks

Rehearsals:
Tuesdays and Thursdays 7:30pm-10:30pm and Sundays 1pm-6pm July 28th-Sept 10th
Mandatory Tech Week Sept 12th-17th

Not everyone will be needed for every rehearsal. With the exception of tech week, we will do our best to schedule the youth performers rehearsing on Sundays and first on weeknights.

Shows:
Sept 18, 19, 25, 26 and Oct 1, 2 8pm Sept 27 3pm

For the audition please prepare 90 seconds of an uptempo standard musical theatre piece (in the style of, for example, Gypsy, Mame, Hello Dolly, Annie, etc.) Please bring a tracked accompaniment as no audition pianist will be provided. Songs from the show are welcome! No a cappella auditions please.__

You will also be asked to prepare mini-monologues from sides you will receive once your audition is scheduled.

Children auditioning for the role of Tina will be asked to dance.

CASTING NOTES:

This is a very funny, fast-paced, and wickedly twisted musical comedy with 8 distinct female roles. There is no “ensemble”. With the exception of the non-singing role of Miss Block, all the characters have solo songs.

The role of Tina Denmark can be played a youngster or an adult. The show is effective either way for different and valid reasons. ​We are looking to cast a Tina between the ages of 8 and 18. ​We may also consider double casting this role to lessen tech week pressure for a young actress.

CHARACTER BREAKDOWNS:

Tina Denmark: an 8-year old “triple threat”, loaded with talent and manipulative to the core, she is sickeningly sweet but underneath, is a remorseless psychopath. She will be required to dance quite proficiently, and should have a strong belt. Ideally, we would like to cast someone between 8-18 years old.

F# below middle C to E one octave above middle C

Louise Lerman: The student who beats out Tina for the lead in the school play, she has limited talent and is larger than Tina. Depending on the casting of Tina, this role may be an older child actor or played by an adult who doubles with Eve.

Middle C to B Flat above middle C
