Marathon Community Theatre is casting roles for the 2013-14 theatre season September 28 and 29. A little experience is nice, even if it was years ago as an elf in an elementary school holiday pageant. But, no previous experience is required. Age doesn’t matter either, as long as you can look the character’s age on stage, because in community theatre, age is a matter of mind and make-up.
Experienced or not, MCT volunteers will guide you through the fun and easy audition process, which starts with dance and vocal audition registration at 9 a.m, and script reading audition registration at 12:30 p.m.
The line-up includes: Mama Won’t Fly, a Jones Hope Wooten comedy. MCT is casting 6 women and 2 men who can look mid-30’s to 90’s on stage for this hilarious race against the clock that begins when Savannah Sprunt Fairchild Honeycutt agrees to get her feisty mother all the way from Alabama to California in time for her brother's wedding. Directed for MCT by Jennifer Mixon-Eick. Performances are weekends from November 21 to December 14.
A Few Good Men by Aaron Sorkin. MCT is casting 14 men and possibly 3 women who can look age 18 up 60-something on stage for this enormously entertaining Broadway hit by Aaron Sorkin that tells the tale of military lawyers at a court martial who uncover a high-level conspiracy in the course of defending two Marines accused of complicity in the death of a fellow Marine. Directed for MCT by Alicia Merel. Performances are weekends from January 16 to February 8.
9 to 5: The Musical with music and lyrics by Dolly Parton and book by Patricia Resnick. MCT is casting 4 women, 5 men for primary roles - and, another 6 to 12 men and women for the ensemble - who can look age15 and up on stage for this fabulously fun show based on the 1980 hit movie about three women - an overworked office manager, a jilted wife, and an objectified secretary- who conspire to depose their smarmy boss and begin making woman-friendly changes in the workplace. Directed for MCT by Devin Clarke. Performances are weekends from March 13 to April 10.
Marrying Terry by Gregg Olpeka. MCT is casting 3 women and 4 men who can look age 35 to 45 on stage for this romantic comedy which is complete with all the mishaps that can arise from mistaken identity when two people with the same name check in to the same hotel on the same night. Directed for MCT by Jennifer Powell. Performances are weekends from May 8 to 24.
Anyone auditioning for the 9 to 5: The Musical must participate in dance and vocal auditions in the morning and script reading in the afternoon. You can do it all in one day or split your audition between Saturday, Sept. 28, and Sunday the 29th. Individuals auditioning for Mama Won’t Fly, A Few Good Men and Marrying Terry only need to be there for one afternoon. Current MCT members and newcomers are welcome to participate in auditions.
