Two nights of auditions kick off on April 8
The Stage Door will close its 2012-2013 season with the fun and enjoyable musical, “There’s a Monster in my Closet.” Show dates for this family-friendly, feel-good play are June 7, 8, 9, 14, 15, and 16.
Auditions are set for Monday and Tuesday evening, April 8 and 9 from 7-9 p.m. at the theater, located at 601 Oak Street in Yukon.
Those interested in the auditioning process need to come with a prepared 1-minute monologue (be prepared to do a cold read if asked) and Verse/Chorus of a song with accompaniment music on CD (prefer upbeat tempo for at least one section of song). Auditioners will also run through a very simple movement exercise.
Those auditioning should bring a copy of their theater resume and a headshot. If no headshot is available, one can be taken at the theater for a minimal $1.00 charge. And don’t let the lack of theater experience deter you from auditioning . . . everyone has to start somewhere!! Also, please bring a list of your conflicts from May 6th through close of show on June 15th. Rehearsals will be Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday evenings from 6-9 p.m.
Fantasy and reality collide in “There’s a Monster in my Closet.” Emily’s having a sleepover with her best friend Stephanie when they discover there’s a monster in her closet! To investigate further (despite the incessant teasing of her big brother and his friends), Emily and Stephanie recruit their friends to help capture the monster. What they don’t know is that Murray, the closet monster, doesn’t mean any harm. He only wants to play Emily’s new video game. This show contains lots of wonderful character, friendship, ingenuity, and a sprinkling of magic.
Play includes a flexible cast of 19, plus chorus, with roles for seven girls (aged 10-16), four boys (aged 12-18), up to six adult roles (ages could vary from 20-‘s to ???), and 3 dreamland characters that are probably male but could be played by anyone, aged 12 and up.
“There’s a Monster in my Closet” is being directed by Julia Donaldson. Any audition questions or conflicts should be directed to Ms. Donaldson at 405-550-0612 or firstname.lastname@example.org
