Tune Up for Spring Musical Auditions

The Memorial Players are holding auditions in October for their spring musical, The Secret Garden, based on the beloved novel by Frances Hodgson Burnett. Auditions take place at Farnham Hall at Memorial Episcopal Church, 1407 Bolton St. (Lafayette Ave. entrance) the weekend of Oct. 14-16.

secretgarden-smDirector Bill Kamberger and producer Paul Seaton have plans for a big cast, including a “Chorus of Dreamers” of nearly a dozen male and female voices. There are parts for everyone ranging from age 10 to, well, as old as you like! with needs for every decade in between.

Auditioners should prepare a song excerpt, 1-2 minutes long, preferably from a Broadway show. You will be asked to read from a director-selected scene and to do some basic movement.

Children over the age of 8 are welcome. A parent/guardian or responsible adult must accompany children under 13 at all rehearsals and performances. If you’ve got a theatrical child, why not audition alongside? Make the spring musical a full family opportunity.

The spring production of The Secret Garden has book and lyrics by Marsha Norman and music by Lucy Simon. Performances will be held at Memorial Episcopal Church the weekends of May 5-7 and 12-14.
