“Godspell” Auditions on Dec. 7

The auditions will be held at the Joan C. Edwards Performing Arts Center in Huntington, W.Va. from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Enter the building by the ramp on the 6th Avenue side of the building and go upstairs to Room 224. Auditions are open only to students in high school. The musical is being directed by Marshall University Theatre professor Jack Cirillo.
“It’s a terrific opportunity for young actors to work with a professional actor and director of Jack Cirillo’s caliber,” said producer Clint McElroy. “At First Stage, we’re thrilled to have to opportunity to work with Jack on this beloved musical.”
Participants can arrive and sign up at any time between 10 and 4. There is no charge to audition or to take part in a First Stage production, and no theatre experience is required.
Auditioners should arrive ready to sing a 30-second section of the song of their choice - an accompanist will be provided. They will also be given a few lines from the script to read, and they’ll be taught a short dance step to demonstrate during the audition (be sure to wear comfortable clothes and shoes).
The show will be presented Feb. 14 - 23, 2014, at the Renaissance Theatre (the old Huntington High School).
The directing team includes: Music Director Lara Donahoe, Choreographer Mary Smirl, and Producers Clint McElroy and Chuck Minsker.
