Newtowne Players Hold Auditions for Children's Production 'Give and Take'

  • By

The Newtowne Players announce open auditions for the upcoming student production of Give and Take by Michael Scanlan. Students ages 8 - 15 are invited to audition. There are no adult parts, and children under the age of 8 at the time of audition are not eligible. 
 Give and Take is a sometimes funny, sometimes haunting collection of folklore from around the world. Each scene in the two-and-a-half hour production is a separate story, each told in its own unique style. The stories come from all corners of the globe, from Africa to Great Britain, South America to Ireland, and everywhere in between. Students will have the chance to experience new ways to tell old stories, and in some cases, experience very old storytelling methods. The common thread tying each story to the next is the idea that there are people who give and people who take.
 Due to the nature of the show, an ensemble cast of 10 to 15 male and female students will be assembled. Individual parts for each scene will be distributed during rehearsals.
 Auditions will be held Dec. 1 and 2 at 6 p.m. at Three Notch Theatre on 21744 South Coral Drive in Lexington Park. There will be no callbacks. Please bring a prepared piece to read or recite. Characters are welcomed and encouraged. If you have questions or cannot make these times but wish to work either onstage or backstage for this production, please call Director Stacey Park at (240) 925-9470.
