Auditions for the Woodland Opera House production
~ Meet Me in St. Louis –
This stage adaptation of the classic 1944 film musical examines one year in the life of the Smith family, who live in St. Louis just as the 1904 World’s Fair is preparing to take place there – until the father’s New York job offer threatens to take them away. You are sure to “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” with this holiday classic.
Auditions will be held August 19th and 20th starting at 7:00 P.M. at the Rehearsal Hall at 415 4th Street Please bring a Head Shot and a resume if you have one.
Auditions will consist of cold reading from the Script, your prepared song (bring the sheet music in your key. An accompanist will be provided), and some simple choreography . Each person auditioning should prepare one song selection in their range of at least 16 bars. Please bring sheet music for the accompanist and dress to move. All roles are open. We are seeking actors of all ages and ethnicities. Available parts listed below will be cast within age-ranges as presented. All actors other than those assigned to the Smith Family and John Truitt will play multiple roles. We will also attempt to work around difficult schedules. The show is directed by Rodger McDonald.
