Davis Musical Theatre Company’s Young Performers Theatre announced auditions for its upcoming fall production of “The Velveteen Rabbit.”
Jan Isaacson will direct and choreograph the show, offering a range of roles available for boys and girls, teens and children. This version features lyrics and music by Barnes Boffey and Paul Pilcher, with additional music by Bob Love.
Auditions will run from 4:30 to 7 p.m. Monday, July 28, and Tuesday, July 29, at the Jean Henderson Performing Arts Center, 607 Peña Drive, with select callbacks on Wednesday, July 30.
Auditions require singing, acting and dancing at the director’s discretion. Auditioners should arrive with appropriate shoes, as well as sheet music of a song they are prepared to sing (do not use a song from the show). A piano accompanist will be provided; no recorded music or a cappella singing, please.
Actors ages 7-17 may participate, as well as 18-year-old high school students or seniors who graduate this year. No experience is required, but selection is by audition. For those cast in the production, a $75 participation fee plus costuming costs are required, as well as 25 parent volunteer hours. Scholarships are available on a limited basis.
Rehearsals will be from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays, beginning Aug. 4, with extended rehearsal times the final week before the show opens. Performances will run Sept. 20 through Oct. 12 (Friday evenings and Saturday/Sunday matinees).
