Auditions!

Auditions for “Mother Goose Tales” (working title)

A note about our production:  Every year, Deirdre and Mara chose a theme for an original performance featuring all current Acting Out students who wish to participate.  Deirdre directs students ages 4-9 years in Act 1, and Mara directs students ages 10 and up in Act 2.

Our play will be performed at The Firehouse Theater on May 18th, with a mandatory dress rehearsal on May 17th.  To help cover the costs of renting The Firehouse we are asking for a participation fee  of $50/ per student ages 7 and up.  The fee for siblings and students ages 4-6 is $25.  If this fee is a hardship please don’t hesitate to contact us - we want every student to be able to participate!  The participation fee also covers an Acting Out t-shirt for each student.

Auditions for students ages 7-9 years (w/ Deirdre):

WHEN:  Wednesday April 1st @ 6PM

WHERE:  Acting Out Studio

Note:  Rehearsals for students ages 7-9 will be held Wednesdays 6-7PM.  Deirdre will rehearse with 4-6 year olds before their 4:45 classes.

Auditions for students ages 10 and up (w/ Mara):

WHEN:  Thursday April 2nd @ 6:15PM or Friday April 3rd @ 6:15PM

WHERE:  Acting Out Studio

WHAT:  Students will read from the script as well as improvise given scene ideas.  Students interested in singing a solo should come prepared to sing a verse or two of a song of their choice.

A note about the process:  I begin with a rough outline of the play and character ideas.  After auditions

I will cast the play, creating parts for each student and begin writing the script in earnest.  I would like to schedule a full cast rehearsal for Saturday April 11th, 10am-NOON, to announce and discuss casting, read thru scenes and workshop scene ideas.

Following April vacation, rehearsals will be held most Thursday and Friday evenings and Saturdays.
