Auditions Set for Youth Summer Theater

Staff reports

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Barrington Stage is seeking budding actors for its summer production of Stephen Sondheim's musical "Into the Woods," a play featuring familiar characters from children's fairy tales.

High school students age 13 to 19 are eligible for the 18 roles up for grabs, and must be able to act, sing and move well. Those auditioning should prepare two songs – one ballad and one up-tempo number. (Songs from the musical are welcome). There will be an accompanist on site, but those auditioning should bring sheet music in the appropriate key.

Auditions will take place at Barrington Stage's Mainstage, 30 Union St., on the following dates:

Sunday, March 21, 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
Callbacks: April 3, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The production begins rehearsals on June 23, and the play will run from July 14 through Aug. 8 at St. Joseph's Central High School, Pittsfield, and from Aug. 10-15 at Pete’s Motors, Great Barrington.

Performers must commit to the rehearsal and performance schedule, must sign a contract, and will be paid a weekly stipend.

Auditions are scheduled for Monday and Tuesday evening, March 8 and 9, at 7 in the small auditorium of the Koussevitzky Arts Center, Room 111, 1350 West St., Pittsfield. Two male leads, two female leads, and many other parts are up for grabs.
