Auburn Area Community Theatre Announces Open Auditions for The Little Prince & The Enchanted Forest!

The Little Prince may have returned to his own tiny planet to tend his Rose and look after his sheep, but for a short, enchanted time he returns to us and comes alive on stage. This imaginative, multi-media adaptation of the classic novel will feature a flexible cast of 5-13 mostly adult performers- race & gender neutral, including some small roles perfect for novices. For the role of the Little Prince, any actor or actress aged 12-22 who can convincingly play a young boy will be considered (parents of younger children, please note: the role requires a great deal of memorization, about half of the lines in a 60-page script.) Other roles best suited for adult age ranges.

Auditions will be held September 9th and 10th from 6-8pm at the Jan Dempsey Community Arts Center, 222 E Drake Ave., Auburn, AL. Please choose one of the days to arrive on-time and plan to stay as long as needed. Please show up with lots of energy, be dressed for movement, and be prepared to read from the script and play theatre games. Call backs, by invitation only, will be September 12th. Also available are off-stage production/technical staff positions for The Little Prince. You may show up to auditions if you are interested in one of those roles or email the director, Steve Bice, at mr.earbrass55@gmail.com.

Rehearsals for this show will be held on Monday, Wednesday, & Thursday evenings from 6-8 p.m. Not all performers required for every rehearsal. Performances will be November 7th-10th, and 14th, 15th, and 17th.

In addition to The Little Prince, AACT will hold auditions for the Halloween Enchanted Forest at the Kreher Preserve and Nature Center, a fundraiser and outreach event for the Kreher Preserve & Nature Center. This fun, family-friendly Halloween event takes guests on a magical hike in the Enchanted Forest where they will be greeted and entertained by costumed forest friends. Auditions are tentatively scheduled for September 24th and 26th from 6-8pm at the Jan Dempsey Community Arts Center, 222 E Drake Ave., Auburn, AL for performers ages 14 and up. Each role will be for a forest animal featured on the walk; each part is a couple of minutes to be repeated through the course of the evening for each walking group. Costumes will be provided as well as script suggestions but the scripts can be personalized. A coordinator position for this event to help manage the actors is also available. Actual event is Oct 24, 25 5:00-8:30. Minimal rehearsal time required. Please contact Melanie Brown at supersugarmel@gmail.com with any questions and follow AACT on Facebook at www.facebookcom/auburnact to stay up to date on all our events.
