SYT auditions for Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs of the Black ForestPublished 3:04pm Friday, February 8, 2013
The Spartanburg Youth Theatre (SYT) announces auditions for Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs of the Black Forest. The auditions will take place in the Youth Theatre classroom at the Chapman Cultural Center on Monday and Tuesday, Feb. 11 and 12, from 5:30 to 7:15 p.m.
To audition, students will need to perform a one-minute monologue, which they may bring with them or choose from our selections once they arrive. Memorization is encouraged but not required. Monologues are available in the Spartanburg Little Theatre office at the Chapman Cultural Center, if someone would like to pick up a monologue prior to auditions. Children in grades third through 12th are welcome to audition, and children in grades seventh through 12th are invited to sign-up to work backstage.
Students who audition for the show should understand that, if cast, they would be expected to miss school on Wednesday, April 17, and Thursday, April 18, for school time performances. Public performances will take place at 4:30 p.m. and 7 p.m. on Friday, April 19, and 2 p.m. on Saturday, April 20.
To help students prepare for the auditions, the Spartanburg Youth Theatre is offering an optional audition workshop on Saturday, Feb. 9, from 9 a.m.-noon in the Youth Theatre classroom at the Chapman Cultural Center. Students who take this workshop will come away with audition tips and a rehearsed monologue. They will also have the opportunity to work with the Snow White script and director.
There is a small cost for the workshop. Call 864-585-8278 to save a spot.
