Repertory Theater for Young Audiences is holding auditions for the title role of Pinocchio in the forthcoming production of the same name opening on August 16, 2014. Auditions will be held on Saturday, March 1 at 10:00am at the Onstage theater 2nd floor Greenbelt One.
Auditions are open to boys and girls 10 to 15 years of age. Girls must be willing to play a boy. Boys older than 15 should be less then 5 ft. tall. Those who audition should be able to sing in a high or tenor voice, to move well and be able to take choreography, and to speak good English.
RYTA is specially searching for home schooled children who can perform on weekdays. Because of the number of performances, the role of Pinocchio will be alternately played by at least five actors.
Auditioners should fill out an application form available either at the REP office or on line and learn the audition song before the auditions. Lyrics and music can be picked up at the rep office (please bring a flash drive) or can be emailed. Contact Oliver Usison at 8433570 5508820 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Pinocchio will run from August to December. Rehearsals will start on June 9. Rehearsals will be from 6:00 to 9:00pm from Monday to Friday.
RTYA is in its 22nd year of providing professional theater for young audiences. It performs for schools, organizations, charity fund raisers and for families who want their children to experience enjoyment of live theater and to benefit from this experience.
