AUDITIONS: CURIOUS GEORGE

Curious George is at it again!

This beloved children's character that first came to life in books by Margaret and H.A. Rey finds himself in another adventure as he tries to help his favorite Italian chef win a meatball contest. The classic characters and lively music weave together a story about kindness and friendship.

Auditions will be held on:

Monday, February 05, from 4:15pm – 6:15pm

Tuesday, February 06, from 4:15pm – 6:15pm

 

Callbacks will be held on Thursday, February 08 from 4:30pm – 6:45pm
You will be notified by email if you will be needed for callbacks.

 

No appointment needed. Actors only need to attend one day of auditions.

 

All auditions and any necessary callbacks will be held at the Morgan-Wixson Theatre.

 

Street parking available.

Venice Family Clinic’s parking lot is available on weekends and on weekdays after 6:00pm. Do not park at our neighbors AAMCO/Viking Motors or SGI or you will be towed.

Prepare 32 bars (verse and chorus) of an uptempo song in the standard musical comedy style with accompaniment on a CD, iPhone, iPad or the Android equivalents.  
Please do not sing pop songs, liturgical music, or country western.  
In addition, please do not sing "Popular," "Let It Go," or "Good Morning, Baltimore."  
Be prepared to dance.

March 31 through April 15, 2018:
Saturdays and Sundays at 11:00am, 
including 2 school show performances on April 10th and 12th.
School shows will require actors to miss their morning classes, but they can receive community service credit.

 

Please note that actors MUST be available for all performances,

including School Shows (2 on each day listed).

This is non-negotiable!

Rehearsals will begin with a read-through on Saturday, February 10 and are held Monday through Friday from 4:00pm to 6:45pm, and Saturdays from 1:00pm to 5:00pm.

Actors are not called for all rehearsals, only rehearsals where they are being used for a scene.

Rehearsals will be worked around actors' schedules as much as possible, although if you are going to be out of town for 2 full weeks, you will probably not be cast. As always, we consider homework a priority!

  • A picture (a school picture or snapshot is fine).

  • A resume or list of shows done.

  • Your conflicts for the rehearsal period.

All conflicts MUST be submitted prior to callbacks. Please check with your school choir/band/theatre director, your soccer/baseball coach, or any other adult who schedules your time, about all conflicts PRIOR to auditioning.  
If additional conflicts arise after casting, it may result in an actor being replaced.
