The Friends of the Arts’ last play of the season is coming up, the James Lapine and Stephen Sondheim Broadway musical, Into the Woods.
Here is your chance to be on the stage as part of this production. All actors or aspiring actors in the community are invited to audition for a role.
The award-winning Into the Woods will be directed by Harold Easton, assisted by Marilou Conner, with Katie Hoyt as the musical director for this Friends of the Arts production. It will be performed on April 26, 27 and 28.
Into the Woods debuted in San Diego at the Old Globe Theatre in 1986 and premiered on Broadway on Nov. 5, 1987, where it won several Tony awards.
The plot stems from several Brothers Grimm and Charles Perrault fairy tales, with characters taken from Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and the Beanstalk, Rapunzel, and Cinderella.”
The story follows a childless baker and his wife in their quest to begin a family by finding a red cape, a white cow, corn-yellow hair and a magic slipper to get a wicked witch to remove a curse she has placed on them.
Auditions will take place on Jan. 19 from 6pm to 8pm; and on Jan. 20 and 21 from 3pm to 5pm, at the Dolphin Theater, Building T, at Marianas High School.
The play has five male parts, ages 18 to 65-plus, and 10 female parts, ages 15 to 65-plus. Come to the auditions and try out. This is a musical, so be prepared to both sing and read as part of the audition.
