Davis Musical Theatre Company’s Young Performers Theatre announced auditions for its upcoming production of “Charlotte’s Web.”
Helen Spangler will direct this musical version of E.B. White’s childhood favorite that tells the story of the blossoming friendship between Wilbur, Fern’s little pig, and Charlotte, the nurturing spider. There are a wide range of roles available for boys and girls, teens and children.
Auditions will run from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. Monday and Tuesday, March 4-5, at the DMTC Performing Arts Center, 607 Peña Drive. There will be select call-backs on Wednesday, March 6. Auditions require singing, acting and dancing at the director’s discretion, so auditioners should arrive with appropriate shoes, as well as sheet music of a song they are prepared to sing (please 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 through 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.
The general rehearsal schedule is 4:30 to 7 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays, beginning March 11. Performances are on weekends from April 26 through May 19.
