Announcing auditions for Mary poppins jr.!
Ready to take the stage?
Stagecraft produces 2 main-stage productions every year, offering students the chance to put their talents and training to use. Stagecraft strives to focus every experience on learning and growth. Auditions provide an opportunity for students to gain self-confidence and performing experience in a safe, fun, and encouraging environment!
Students ages 8 to 18 who are enrolled in Stagecraft Classes are eligible to audition.
ABOUT THE SHOW
Based on one of the most popular Disney movies of all time and the Broadway musical that played for over 2,500 performances and received multiple Olivier and Tony Awards nominations, Disney and Cameron Mackintosh's Mary Poppins is capturing hearts in a whole new way: as a practically perfect Broadway Junior musical!
The jack-of-all trades, Bert, introduces us to England in 1910 and the troubled Banks family. Young Jane and Michael have sent many a nanny packing before Mary Poppins arrives on their doorstep. Using a combination of magic and common sense, she must teach the family members how to value each other again. Mary Poppins takes the children on many magical and memorable adventures, but Jane and Michael aren't the only ones upon whom she has a profound effect. Even grown-ups can learn a lesson or two from the nanny who advises that "Anything can happen if you let it."
HOW DO AUDITIONS WORK?
The audition process is split into 2 parts.
At the General Audition, students will be called into the audition room in small groups. Auditions are closed to family and friends. Each student will be asked to introduce themselves, present their audition form, and read for the director of the show.
After the general audition, the artistic team may ask some students to participate in Callbacks. These students may be asked to do cold reads from the script of the show.
When the cast list is complete, it will be posted here on the Stagecraft website and everyone who auditioned will be notified.
Rehearsals are every Friday from 6PM-9PM and Saturday from 10AM-3PM.
Dress rehearsals will be held nightly during the week of the show from TBA and are mandatory for all cast members.
Students may not be needed at every rehearsal. A detailed rehearsal schedule will be released after casting which will attempt to comply with any listed conflicts.
All conflicts must be listed on the Audition Form, and additional conflicts may not be added. Stagecraft strives to teach the importance of commitment, therefore, attendance and punctuality are documented and may affect future Stagecraft participation.
Stagecraft is a family affair! On the Audition Form, parents are asked to sign committing to attend 2 mandatory parent meetings and volunteer a minimum of 20 hours on pre-show and show-week parent committees. Committees cover every aspect of producing a show, including sets, costumes, lights, sound, tickets, concessions, souvenirs, backstage crew, and many more. Our shows would not be possible without the dedication and investment of each family!
