Auditions for Snow White at Stage Nine

Auditions for Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs will be held on Tuesday, Dec. 9 at 7:00pm at the Stage Nine Theatre, 717 Sutter St., Historic Folsom. This family musical fairly hums with 14 songs, and features the wise-cracking Mirror who will answer only if addressed in rhyme, as well as a whole court of funny bubbling characters. Performances are Jan. 24-March 8 at 1:30pm on Saturdays & Sundays. We will also attempt to book school groups for shows at 9:00am & 11:00am on Wednesday, Feb. 4 & 18 so you should be available for those morning shows. Rehearsals will be the first three full weeks of January on Sunday thought Thursday evenings. There may be some musical rehearsals prior to that. This is a short rehearsal period so a commitment of time will be needed. This is a musical so be prepared to sing a short song. An accompanist will be available. The rest of the audition will be cold readings from the script. Please bring a head shot or photo and a resume if you have one. The director is Allen Schmeltz. These are non-paying roles. The following will be cast by older teens or adults. The dwarfs will be cast by children or pre or early teens. Witch Wicked - A southern witch who loves her "special powers," a bit forgetful The Queen - cold, evil and beautiful, a spoiled brat Mirror - has major attitude, but is also wise Snow White - beautiful, inside and out, sweet but with a backbone Sir Pompus - the Queen's Minister. Good-hearted, but a Nervous Nellie. Perhaps a bit vain. Afraid of the Queen. The Prince - a clever and brave typical fairy tale prince Lady Penelope - a lady-in-waiting, suspicious about everything Lady Lucinda - a lady-in-waiting. Very vain. Lady Mathilda - a lady-in-waiting. Nice, not too bright. Sir Clumsy - as his name implies Sir Silly - he and Clumsy are sort of the two stooges THE DWARFS: The following will be cast by children or pre or early teens. Picker & Packer - (these roles will be precast) Cutter - always nervous Grinder - probably chubby 'cause he loves to eat Woeful - always sad and crying Mouse - he's mute and mimes everything Keeper - gruff, the leader of the dwarfsFor further information email allen@allensproductions.com
