DMTC’s Young Performers Theater Announces Auditions on Sept. 16-17
for Wacky, Loveable ‘The Addams Family, young @ part’
Davis Musical Theatre Company’s Young Performers Theater announces auditions for its upcoming production of “The Addams Family, young @ part.” Brian McCann will direct this heart-warming and peculiar tale of family bonds.
Auditions for “The Addams Family, young @ part” will be held on Monday, September 16 and Tuesday, September 17 at 4:30 p.m., with select call-backs on Wednesday, September 18, at the Jean Henderson Performing Arts Center, 607 Pena Drive, Davis, CA.
Celebrate the wackiness in every family with this best-selling Broadway musical adapted for middle school-age performers! Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, has grown up and fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family whom her parents have never met. She confides in her father and begs him not to tell her mother. Now, Gomez Addams must do something he’s never done before – keep a secret from his beloved wife, Morticia. Everything will change for the whole family on the fateful night they host a dinner for Wednesday’s “normal” boyfriend and his parents.
Auditions require singing, acting and dancing at the director’s discretion, and auditioners must bring sheet music of a song they are prepared to sing (do not use a song from the show). A piano accompanist will be provided; no recorded music or a cappella singing. The production offers many roles for experienced and new-to-the-stage boys and girls, ages 7-17, plus 18 year-olds who are still in high school. Newcomers are warmly encouraged.
The general rehearsal schedule is 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., Monday through Thursday, beginning on Monday, September 23. Not all actors will be called for every rehearsal.
Performances are every Saturday at 2 p.m., November 9-30, plus Friday, November 29 at 7 p.m., Sunday, December 1 at 2 p.m.
