Drayton Entertainment is once again reaching out to the community to involve local youth in its season opening production of The Wizard of Oz, which runs from June 4th through June 23rd at the Huron Country Playhouse in Grand Bend.
An Open Audition will be held on Sunday, March 25th at the Huron Country Playhouse to cast boys and girls in grades five through ten to play the part of the munchkins in one of the greatest family musicals of all time.
Younger performers, ages 8 through 11, are asked to arrive to audition at 12:30 p.m. Older youth performers, ages 12 through 15, are asked to arrive beginning at 2:30 p.m. through 4:30 p.m. No appointments are necessary, however the aspiring young performers should be prepared to sing “Ding Dong the Witch is Dead”. Performance experience is an asset, but not required. A passion for theatre is the only prerequisite!
Hopeful munchkins are asked to bring a recent photo and resume of any theatrical productions that they have been involved with (school choirs, dance schools, etc.).
Do you know a young girl with her sights set on the stage? Award-winning Drayton Entertainment is now accepting video submissions for its much-anticipated production of the hit family musical Annie, which runs at three locations during the 2012 Season: May 29th through June 23rd at the King’s Wharf Theatre in Penetanguishene; August 15th through September 1st at the Huron Country Playhouse in Grand Bend; and November 13th through December 23rd at the St. Jacobs Country Playhouse.
In order to allow as many young girls as possible to have the opportunity to be considered for the coveted role of the infamous red-headed orphan, Drayton Entertainment is accepting video submissions from now until Friday, March 23rd.
Aspiring young actresses across Ontario are invited to record a video of themselves singing the memorable song “Tomorrow” and send it to the Drayton Entertainment casting team by following the easy step-by-step instructions outlined on www.draytonentertainment.com.
The submission process is open to girls ages 9-14 years. No theatre experience is necessary, but enthusiasm and spirit are required! The actress cast in the role of Annie must be available for rehearsals and performances at all three venue locations.
