Where will auditions be held?
Western Park’s Ice Arena Building [east doors], 302 East 200 South, Vernal, Utah
Who may audition?
Everyone (over age 14) is invited, no one is pre-cast before auditions take place. Every part is important! Chorus parts (with little or no lines) can make the show great or just average. No matter how great the leads are, if there’s not a strong supporting cast, the show cannot reach its potential. Where would Gladys Knight have been without her Pips? Then again, are you the next Julie Andrews or Gene Kelly?
Note on Children:
Any/all children (under 15 years old) that are cast must have a parent or a mature relative or guardian involved with the production on a nightly basis.
Rehearsals will begin on May , 2018 and run Mon – Fri from 7-10 PM. Exact dates and times for the melodrama will be determined as it gets started. Those rehearsals will be fitted around the musical rehearsals in the most efficient manner possible.
Into the Woods
James Lapine and Stephen Sondheim take everyone’s favorite storybook characters and bring them together for a timeless, yet relevant, piece… and a rare modern classic. The Tony Award-winning book and score are both enchanting and touching.
The story follows a Baker and his wife, who wish to have a child; Cinderella, who wishes to attend the King’s Festival; and Jack, who wishes his cow would give milk. When the Baker and his wife learn that they cannot have a child because of a Witch’s curse, the two set off on a journey to break the curse. Everyone’s wish is granted, but the consequences of their actions return to haunt them later with disastrous results.
One of Sondheim’s most popular works, Into the Woods is a musically sophisticated show with the opportunity to feature actors adept at dark comedy. Designers will especially enjoy highlighting the fantastical elements of this magical word.
