"The King & I" auditions to come


Mon, May 16th, 2011
Posted in Arts & Culture

Auditions for the 2011 Wits' End Theatre production of The King & I are coming up May 30 and 31 at Potter Auditorium in Chatfield. Check-in starts at 6:30 p.m. This great Rodgers & Hammerstein musical requires a large cast and offers parts for all ages, especially younger performers. Two evenings are being offered for auditions for the first time this year to encourage wider participation from the greater Southeast Minnesota community.

The auditions committee suggests those trying out for singing roles should pick simple, familiar and comfortable songs, not current popular or C&W hits. Music in keeping with the great Rodgers & Hammerstein sound would be welcome. Bring your own sheet music if needed. An accompanist will be available. (However, many singers prefer to do short selections a capella.)

Younger auditioners in particular are urged to sing a very basic number such as Happy Birthday, America the Beautiful, Yankee Doodle or a familiar song from recent elementary school concerts.

Parents of younger children are urged to bring them early in the evening so they won't be kept so late. Audition forms can be filled out at the auditorium, or can be downloaded in advance from witsendtheatre.org.

No previous acting experience is required, but brief notes on any past performance accomplishments or special training such as dance instruction will be considered in the selection process. Also, check your calendars for possible conflicts with the rehearsal schedule. Rehearsals begin June 26 and run 6:30-9:00 pm Sunday through Thursday every week (except July 3 & 4). Performances are August 10, 11, 12 & 13.

Check the Wits' End web site noted above for more information, or e-mail witsendtheatre@gmail.com. You may also check on Wits End Theatre on Facebook.

The King & I has been an enormously popular musical for decades, and Wits' End Theatre is pleased to bring this remarkable work to Potter Auditorium for the first time. This will be the 41st year of Western Days musicals, and the eighth production for Wits' End Theatre.
