‘Little Shop’ Auditions Announced

LS_FBNewsfeedPicAuditions for Little Shop of Horrors will be held at 7 p.m., Monday, December 14 and Tuesday, December 15 at Hanover Little Theatre, 360 Blooming Grove Road, Hanover.

Those who attend the first night of auditions may be asked to attend the second night of auditions as callbacks.

Please prepare a musical selection (16-32 measures) from a musical in the style of the show. An accompanist will be provided. A CD player and Speakers to connect to electronic devices will also be available if needed. Please no a cappella auditions.

You may be asked to sing a selection from the show so familiarizing yourself with the score is a plus. There may also be readings from the script, as well as being taught minor dance routines.

The show runs April 8-10; 14-17, 2016. Please bring any known conflicts from January through the show’s closing to auditions. No conflicts will be accepted during performances or the week leading up to opening. The rehearsal schedule will consist mainly of weekday evenings and possibly weekends. Because of the small cast size, a set schedule will be built around actor availability.

Any questions or if you’re interested but can not make auditions, please feel free to contact the director, Jeremy Slagle, at jeremy.slagle@yahoo.com. Auditions are open to those 18 and older.
