Theatre at the J is embarking on a “Summer of Adventure” in 2012, and they want your young performer to come along for the ride. This year, they’re performing the timeless Brigadoon and whimsical Wind in the Willows.
The fully-produced musicals are directed and designed by professional Austin theatre artists and the participants are provided with thorough instruction in voice, acting and dance through classes taught by respected, in-demand local instructors.
Because Theatre at the J desires a high-quality pre-professional experience for young artists and to put on a superb production, they require that each participant completes an audition in order to be considered for acceptance into the summer musical programs. But don’t worry if you’ve never been onstage or auditioned before; they just want to get to know you and what you can do.
The audition prep classes will be Monday, March 19, 2012. These classes are highly recommended for students interested in auditioning for the Summer Musicals. For Wind in the Willows, the Audition Prep Class for kids ages 5-11 is from 6:00-7:00 p.m. For Brigadoon, the Audition Prep Class for kids ages 12-18 is from 7:00-8:00 p.m. Cost for either class is $10 JCC members, $15 Non-members.
Auditions will be Tuesday, March 20, 6:00-6:30 p.m.: 5-7 year olds, 6:30-9:00 p.m.: 8-11 year olds for Wind in the Willows and Wednesday, March 21 6:00-9:00 p.m.: 12-18 year olds for Brigadoon. Please register securely on-line.
