Beauty and the Beast Auditions
This is a special invitation for you to join the cast for a fun music filled musical this summer. Beauty and the Beast is the Carnegie Play this year and auditions are Monday May 16 and Tuesday May 17 in the Large lecture hall at Rensselaer Central High School. Please enter the building from the north doors near the gym. Auditions begin at 6:30 p.m. and will run until 8:30 p.m. or until all have had a chance to audition. Call backs, if needed, will be May 19th from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., also in the Large lecture hall. Under the direction of Jon Clevenger and Musical Director Bernard Sell, the production will take place August 4th, 5th and 6th at the R.C.H.S. Auditorium.
Come prepared to read from a script sample and sing a song of your choice. Piano accompaniment will be available. Hopefully the cast list will be e-mailed by the end of the week to all who audition.
The cast includes a Narrator, 5 female and 8 male leads as well as a large ensemble with plenty of space for children. Come be a part of this wonderful musical, and sing the songs we all have come to appreciate: “Belle”, “Gaston”, “Be Our Guest”, “Something There”, and of course, “Beauty and the Beast (Tale As Old As Time)”
If you are not quite the “on-stage” type but are interested in helping, we are always looking for help with set construction, costuming, make-up and hair styling, sound and lighting, stage hands and many other aspects of a show. We encourage you to come to auditions also and let us know what you are interested in. You don’t have to be a professional seamstress, construction worker or sound/ lighting engineer….so don’t be shy!
We do ask that if your child is involved with the production, that a parent or guardian be at each rehearsal that the child is required to be at. We also ask that if you and your child are involved in the production, that an additional parent or guardian be at each rehearsal. We have many tasks or work areas that we can involve you with, if you do not desire to be an actor or actress on stage!
If you have any questions, please call Kevin Long at 219-866-8713 or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
