Stageworks will present a new family musical, Grimhilda!,
at the Mayfair Theatre, in May 2012. The
show's main role is taken by a young boy who can act and sing well;
there is also a smaller role for a youngish girl that requires more
acting than singing. Both children should be able to pass for 8-10 years old. We're looking for four children in all.
The remainder of the parts are played by adults.
There are three substantial adult roles, including that of Grimhilda herself
- a part that requires a singer/actress with pizzazz, vocal
ability and stage presence. The parents of Toby - the young hero - are played by a soprano and baritone.
The chorus members - a minimum of a dozen of a wide age range - all have minor
speaking roles, and play vital roles in the musical.
There are three important non-singing roles. One
short scene requires half a dozen dancers. Auditions start at 10.am on Saturday Nov 5th at the Mornington Presbyterian Community Hall in Maryhill Tce, Dunedin. Auditionees should bring a
piece of music to sing (unless applying for a non-singing role), and be
ready to read lines from the script. Rehearsals will begin early in
Feb, 2012. For more information, and to book a time, please phone Mike
Crowl, 0210 641 081, or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Grimhilda! will be directed by Bert Nisbet, with the Musical Director being Jonathan Drummond.
