Youth Auditions for It's A Wonderful Life

Sunday, September 10 / 2-4pm / 112 Princess Street 

Performance dates: November 22-26 (part of the 2017-2018 Main Stage Series) / directed by Scott Thomas

4 young performers will be required for the November production of It's a Wonderful Life.  The play will be presented as a golden age radio broadcast.  The children selected will need to be able to confidently deliver multiple characters and be able to work responsibly in a larger theatrical production.  Rehearsals for the production run from early September to late November.  The young performers will have a specific but reduced schedule in comparison to the adult cast - however, complete attendance for the schedule is required and parents/guardians should be aware that this is a large time commitment (especially the week of the production).  Any performer - youth or adult - unable to maintain the rehearsal schedule will be replaced.  

Roles include:

Young George Bailey / Tommy Bailey - 10-15 years old

Young Harry Bailey / Peter Bailey - 8-13 years old

Young Mary Hatch / Zuzu Bailey - 10-15 years old

Young Violet Bick / Janie Bailey - 10-15 years old

Ages are flexible and we will consider any performer close to the range.


Please be familiar with the Youth Performer Audition Piece

Interested performers should prepare the piece prior to the audition - memorization is not required.  The key factor we will be looking for is vocal clarity/energy. Golden Age radio and film have very specific vocal and physical styles.  

Interested performers and parents are advised to research golden age radio broadcasts in preparation for the audition.  Examples: The Jack Benny Show, Lux Radio Theatre, George and Gracie.
