Barter Theatre seeks young actors for BARTER’S 2020 SEASON
We are seeking the following:
• 4 young girls or boys for Munchkins in The Wizard of Oz, no taller than 4’10”
• 3 young girls, doubled, for The Weird Sisters in Macbeth, no taller than 5’0”
If auditioning for The Wizard of Oz: please prepare one monologue no longer than 60 seconds, and one song no longer than 60 seconds. You must bring sheet music with you (you can’t be seen without some sort of sheet music); an accompanist will be provided. Some auditionees may be asked to stay to read from the play and/or dance.
If auditioning for Macbeth: please prepare one monologue no longer than 60 seconds. We will also send you a portion of the script to be familiar with for your audition.
If auditioning for both The Wizard of Oz and Macbeth, please prepare one monologue no longer than 60 seconds, and one song no longer than 60 seconds. You must bring sheet music with you (you can’t be seen without some sort of sheet music); an accompanist will be provided. We will also send you a portion of the Macbeth script to be familiar with for your audition.
Rehearsals for The Wizard of Oz begin on March 10th, and the show begins previews on June 10 and runs through August 23rd.
These roles for The Wizard of Oz include 1 swing actor to fill in when needed.
Rehearsals for Macbeth begin on March 3rd, and the show begins previews on March 26th and runs through April 19th.
These roles for Macbeth will likely be double cast, so young actors may not be called for every performance.
There is a place to include any conflicts you have on the audition forms; we ask that you come ready to list all conflicts at the audition so we can take them into consideration while casting. The date and time of each performance is on our website at www.bartertheatre.com. Each child is paid a stipend for every week that they rehearse or perform the show.
The audition will take place at Barter Theatre’s rehearsal halls (160 Trigg Street—pull to the back of the building, and enter through the glass doors) on Saturday, February 1, 2020 from 10:00am-12:00pm. We ask that you arrive at 9:45am with a parent or guardian to fill out paperwork with contact information and the conflicts that you have between March 3rd and August 23rd.
Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org so we can know how many are attending the audition. Please specify whether you’d like to audition for The Wizard of Oz, Macbeth, or both.
Feel free to share this notice with anyone you think might be interested. We hope to see you there!
