Auditions in Georgetown for Peter Pan, the musical, August 24 - 26, 2013
The Georgetown Palace announces auditions for our upcoming production of Peter Pan, directed by Ron Watson, with choreography by Jesse Smart and music direction by Michelle Hache.
The Artistic team is looking for a cast of about 30-35 Adults, Teens, and Children to help bring this timeless, magical classic to life on the Palace Springer Memorial Stage. This show will be an unforgettable experience and a lot of fun.
Auditions will be held Saturday, August 24th, starting at 2pm, Sunday-August 25th, starting at 4:30pm, and Monday August 26th at 7pm. Callbacks will be held Tuesday-August 27th, starting at 7pm. Rehearsals will not begin until September 9th.
Performances will begin November 15th, and close December 30th. Performances are Friday and Saturday evenings at 7:30pm, and Sunday at 2pm. We will also have many weeknight performances, Saturday matinees, and possibly Sunday evening performances. All auditions, rehearsals, and performances will be held at the Palace Theatre.
This show will have some special effects, and just as we did for the Wizard of Oz, the characters Peter, Michael, John, Wendy, Jane, and Liza will actually fly. We're bringing in Hall and Associates flying effects to do the flying installation and training.
The show will have a large number of performances, and being around the holidays, it's understandable that some who want to be involved will have performance conflicts. It's my preference not to double cast any of the roles unless I have to. But please don't let having performance conflicts prevent you from auditioning. I will more than likely have performing understudies, where the understudy will be guaranteed a small number of performances and of course perform in the event of an emergency.
The Children's Chorus (anyone under the age of 12) may play Pirates, Indians, and animals, along with some of the lost boys and featured roles. In order to audition, each child must be at least 7 years of age before August 24th, and not older than 12.
The Adults (ages 13 and up) will play the Pirates, Indians, Animals, along with the featured and named roles.
Our rehearsals will generally be held Monday through Thursday, from 7-10pm, and Saturdays from 1-5pm. However, it's possible that we will schedule rehearsals on some Sundays and Fridays as well. So we are asking for everyone's availability for the possible alternative times up front.
