Are you a student in grades 1 through 12 who’s interested in acting? If so, Stoneham Theatre is looking for you! Stoneham Theatre’s young company is excited to announce the young company Winter Festival auditions for Charlotte’s Web, Shrek, and Winesburg, Ohio.
Each winter, the young company presents a three-show festival of musicals. This is an audition-based program that culminates in performances on Stoneham Theatre’s stage. This winter, Stoneham Theatre’s young company is presenting Charlotte’s Web, Shrek, and Winesburg, Ohio from January 29 – February 9, 2014.
Since its publication in 1952, Charlotte's Web has numbered among America's most beloved children's novels. Now, Stoneham Theatre's overture and act 1 students (grades 1-6) will bring to life the unforgettable story of one "terrific" pig, the spider who saves his life, and their band of barnyard friends. Featuring songs by Charles Strouse (Annie, Bye Bye Birdie), Charlotte's Web is a musical adventure perfect for all ages.
Based on the Oscar®-winning DreamWorks film, Shrek is a musical fairytale-gone-wrong that promises to get the entire family giggling. Join our act 2 students (grades 7-9) as they tell the story of an ogre named Shrek, his sidekick, Donkey, and Princess Fiona (who isn't exactly what she seems). Featuring a colorful cast of your favorite fairy tale figures, Shrek is a fun-filled reminder that even the most unlikely heroes can save the day.
Based on Sherwood Anderson's seminal short story cycle, Winesburg, Ohio is a coming-of-age musical set in a small mid-western town in the early 1900s. Portrayed by an ensemble of Stoneham Theatre's act 3 students (grades 10-12), the apparently ordinary citizens of Winesburg unveil the tragedies and joys of their secret lives through a beautiful folk-inspired score. At their center is 18-year-old George Willard, who must choose between remaining comfortably in Winesburg or pursuing his artistic dreams in the big city.
Auditions for Charlotte’s Web, Shrek, and Winesburg, Ohio will be held November 12 through November 20, 2013 by appointment only.
