New Britain Youth Theater will begin its fifth season of performances with auditions for Rumpelstiltskin. Auditions are for children ages 6 through 9 on Monday, September 8, and Tuesday, September 9, 2014, at NBYT at the New Britain-Berlin YMCA at 50 High Street in New Britain (next to the New Britain public library). Audition times both days begin at 6:00 p.m. Rehearsal days are not yet set, but will not include weekends. The production will be performed at the same location on November 14, 15, and 16, 2014.
Rumpelstiltskin is an adaptation of the Brothers Grimm fairy tale about a mischievous dwarf and one big, golden lie! The production will be directed by Brooke Ferguson and Christina LoBello.
Boys and girls between ages 6 and 9 are encouraged to audition. All levels of experience are welcome, and auditions are open to children from any town. No prepared monologue is required, but those auditioning will meet as a group with the directors and may be asked to repeat lines or read from the play. To schedule an audition, call (860) 515-8115 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Pre-scheduled auditions are preferred, but walk-ins are welcome. Those cast will be asked to pay a participation fee of $75. No child or family, however, will be turned away for inability to pay, so please ask about financial assistance if necessary. Older children age 13 and up may also call with interest in helping backstage.
