Youth Actor Audtions February 11 at Southwestern College

The Southwestern College theatre department is having youth actor auditions for the musical “Children of Eden.” Many dynamic roles are available including young Cain and Abel and the Storytellers.  All characters in “Children of Eden” narrate and entertain through song, movement, and dialogue.

“The central theme of the production is the parent-child relationship, so actors of a variety of ages are needed in order to create multigenerational families on stage,” said director Allyson Moon. “The opportunity will provide actors the chance to develop as actors, singers, and dancers while working side-by-side with SC performance majors.”
Youth ages seven and up with all levels of experience are encouraged to try out.

Auditions will be held on Saturday, Feb. 11, from 1 to 5 p.m. in Messenger Recital Hall in the Darbeth Fine Arts Center on the Southwestern campus.  Those auditioning will be asked to sing a song of their choice, and should be prepared to tell a story. Actors will also be taught a movement sequence. Rehearsals will begin Feb. 13. The production dates are April 12-15.
