Albany, Ga.—Theatre Albany will conduct auditions for the second musical offering of the 2011/2012 Season, “Little Women,” Saturday and Sunday, September 17 and 18 at 2 p.m. at the theatre located at 514 Pine Avenue.
Based on Louisa May Alcott’s own family experiences (and novel), “Little Women,” follows the adventures of Jo, Meg, Beth and Amy March as they grow up in Civil War America. The beloved story of the March sisters is timeless and deals with issues as relevant today as when they were written. Now, this wonderful narrative has been brought to life as an exhilarating new musical filled with glorious music, dancing and heart.
Director Mark Costello is looking to cast 4 men (ages 18 and up) for the roles of Laurie, Professor Bhaer, Mr. Laurence and Mr. Brooke and 6 women (ages 16 and up) for the roles of Jo, Amy, Beth, Meg, Marmee and Aunt March.
Persons interested in auditioning should prepare a song to sing; something that shows off the voice, and bring either the sheet music or a CD. An accompanist will be provided. Rehearsals are set to begin in October with performances scheduled for December 8 thru 18. For further information, call the theatre at (229) 439-7193.
