Peter Pan

AUDITIONS FOR PETER PAN JR.

The Un-Common Theatre Company is thrilled to announce auditions for our 2019 Young Performers Production of Peter Pan JR.

Peter and his mischievous fairy sidekick, Tinkerbell, visit the nursery of the Darling children late one night and, with a sprinkle of pixie dust, begin a magical journey across the stars that none of them will ever forget. In the adventure of a lifetime, the travelers come face to face with a ticking crocodile, a fierce Indian tribe, a band of bungling pirates and, of course, the villainous Captain Hook.

Peter Pan JR. is the perfect show for the child in all of us… who dreamed of soaring high and never growing up.  It is a heartwarming celebration of being different that is sure to delight audiences of all ages with its sparkling wit, unique charm and memorable score.

AUDITIONS FOR LEGALLY BLONDE

The Un-Common Theatre Company is excited to announce auditions for our Spring Production of Legally Blonde.

A fabulously fun award-winning musical based on the adored movie, Legally Blonde, follows the transformation of Elle Woods as she tackles stereotypes and scandal in pursuit of her dreams. Action-packed and exploding with memorable songs and dynamic dances – this musical is so much fun, it should be illegal!

Elle Woods appears to have it all. Her life is turned upside down when her boyfriend Warner dumps her so he can attend Harvard Law. Determined to get him back, Elle charms her way into the prestigious law school. While there, she struggles with peers, professors and her ex. With the support of some new friends, though, Elle quickly realizes her potential and sets out to prove herself to the world.

THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT UN-COMMON AUDITIONS

Auditions for Un-Common shows are open to all those interested within the age ranges specified. No previous acting experience or affiliation with the theatre company is necessary.

An auditioner will audition with many actors and will be offered a role at the total discretion of the director, choreographer and music director. Parent participation, affiliation with Un-Common Theatre or past involvement will not be considered in casting decisions. Every performer comes with different strengths and qualities and casting decisions are made based on many factors including talent (singing, dancing and acting), look (age/height/coloring), how auditioners look/interact as a group, etc. This process is often difficult and the creative team (director, music director and choreographer) takes great care in casting the best mix of performers for each production.

We customarily present four productions throughout our season. Auditions and performance dates for these shows are:

Auditions Show Performances
September Fall Production November/December
December Young Performers Production March
December or January Spring Production April
May Young Adult Production July
May Improv Soup Monthly October – June

If you don’t already receive our audition notifications, please email us at auditions@uncommontheatre.org to receive the latest audition and show information. Or like us on Facebook to keep updated!
