BPA to hold auditions for holiday shows next week
Christmas cheer is in the air a little early this year as Bainbridge Performing Arts begins auditions for two separate holiday shows next week.
The first show is “Another Letter to Father Christmas & Holiday Sing-Along,” written and directed by Barbara Deering. Auditions are by appointment only and will be at 1 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 1 at BPA.
Actors are sought for the roles of Father Christmas, four Elves, adults who are comfortable singing parts confidently and adept at physical comedy, and several Occasional Elves, children ages 7 and older. Players of all roles must be comfortable with improvisation and willing to interact with the audience during the sing-along portions. Actors who are fluent in American Sign Language are especially encouraged to audition.
Interested parties should email firstname.lastname@example.org to request and audition time.
The show will run at 3 p.m. Sundays, Dec. 8, 15 and 22.
The second show is “It’s A Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play,” adapted and directed by Frank Buxton.
BPA is seeking 10 to 12 voice actors to play a variety of characters for this fully staged production. Hence, voice actors should be comfortable in a fully theatrical show setting.
Auditions are Thursday, Sept. 26 at BPA by appointment only. Those interested should email email@example.com to schedule a time.
Those auditioning should be prepared to do a cold read from the script and meet with the director. No memorized monologue is required, but participants should bring with them a headshot or recent photo. Rehearsals will begin Sundays throughout November. The show will run at 7:30 p.m. Saturdays, Dec. 7, 14 and 21.
