Treasure Island Auditions

Mar 9th, 2014

TreasureIsland-finalAuditions for the Young Company’s June production of Treasure Island will be held Monday and Tuesday, March 10 & 11 from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. at the Old Town Playhouse.  Auditionees must be at least 9 years of age (or have prior permission from the director) and no older than 18.  Director Mychelle Hopkins will read from the script and put students through a sequence of stage combat moves.  No prerequisites apply for this Y.C. production and no prior experience is necessary.  Auditionees need only attend one day of auditions but should plan on staying for the entire time.  Treasure Island is a dramatic adaptation of the story by Robert Louis Stevenson and features a cast of approximately 25 young people.  Many roles are easily played by male or female and there are even female pirates!  If cast, rehearsals will be scheduled Monday through Thursday until June and there will be NO REHEARSALS during TCAPS’ spring break.  Students interested in the two technical crews; Lighting/Sound and Costume, should attend one of the audition days to fill out paperwork and observe the process.  Tuition will be taken only if cast in production.  Scholarships are available.  Call 947-2210 for further information.
