Harwich Junior Theatre announces auditions for "Jack and the Beanstalk"

Roles for adults and children available

The Harwich Junior Theatre has announced auditions for a new musical comedy version of Jack and the Beanstalk, written by Dafydd Rees and Stephen Russell and directed by Stephen Russell with musical direction by Bob Wilder.

This uproariously funny version of the classic story is told in the tradition of English holiday entertainments and features classic rock 'n' roll songs, pie fights, enormous vegetables, a King, a plucky hero, an equally plucky heroine and an evil henchman named, of all things, Henchman.

Delicious roles are available for adult actors who also sing for all of the above, plus we're looking for young actors (10 and older) for other roles and ensemble parts. We're particularly interested in seeing high school age actors who can sing and move well and don't mind having the most fun they've ever had on stage.

Auditions will be held at the Harwich Junior Theatre on Division Street, in West Harwich, on Saturday, September 25 from 1pm to 4pm and Monday, September 27 from 6pm to 9pm.

No monologue is required but it would be great if you could come prepared to sing a song of your choice and read from the script.

Rehearsals begin the first week in November and will be mostly evenings and Saturday afternoons. The play opens on Friday, December 3, 2010 and runs through December 30, 2010, with Christmas week off.
