Oct. 30--Actors, young and older, can audition for upcoming shows by New Bern Civic Theatre and the Old Theater in Oriental
NBCT and StageHANDS has auditions for Rodgers & Hammerstein's "Cinderella" Friday and Saturday.
The tryouts are at 6 p.m. Friday at New Bern Civic Theatre on Pollock Street and again on Saturday at the New Bern Area Chamber of Commerce on South Front Street at 3 p.m.
It is the Tony Award-winning Broadway musical that offers a delightful contemporary take on a beloved fairy tale.
Cast members ages 9 to 14 are needed. Participants should come prepared with their favorite poem or monologue, along with a song. Be prepared for cold reads.
The show is directed by Abigail Leffler and produced by Noah Auten.
The production is scheduled for the stage in March 2014.
Call 634-9057. On the web: newberncivictheatre.org
On Nov. 12 and 13, the Old Theater in Oriental holds auditions at 6:30 p.m. for "The Explosive Radioactive Theater Presents: 1946 (The Sequel)." The show will be presented in late January 2014.
Actors and stage crew are needed.
The play, a creative take on the WONC Radio Shows featured in the past, was written by Oriental resident Roger Bullis. The play will be co-directed by Bullis and Per Erichsen. Mary Clyde Dunn will provide music direction.
Act One requires four main characters -- two male and two female -- plus two "burly men" as secondary characters. Those men also will provide "Foley Artistry," or sound effects, in Act Three.
Act Two invites audience participation.
Act Three is the actual radio show performance. Real scripts from classic 1940s radio shows will be incorporated. Actors with some skills in impersonation and singing are also needed for the radio show commercials.
Call Bullis at 249-1461.
