CENTER’S YOUTH THEATRE TROUPE TO HOLD OPEN AUDITIONS FOR SUMMER PRODUCTION
The Carrollwood Cultural Center’s youth theatre troupe, Broadway Bound, will hold open auditions on Saturday, May 18 from 10am until 1pm for the summer production of HONK! Jr. Children, ages 6 to 17 should be prepared to sing, dance and deliver a monologue as part of their audition. The auditions will take place at the Center, located at 4537 Lowell Road in Tampa.
Broadway Bound is an educational musical theatre group that teaches the skills required for musical theatre. By offering comprehensive training in dance, music, and drama, children have the opportunity to be well- rounded performers in all disciplines.
Students of Broadway Bound have appeared in several musicals at the Center, including Oliver!, The Music Man, The King and I, HAIRSPRAY: The Broadway Musical, Once Upon a Mattress G2K and How to Eat Like a Child.
HONK! Jr., is a contemporary retelling of Hans Christian Anderson’s The Ugly Duckling with a Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat-esque score that everyone will enjoy. The show, with music by George Stiles and book and lyrics by Anthony Drewe, is being presented through a special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI).
The cast of HONK! Jr. will be enrolled in the Broadway Bound summer camp, giving them an opportunity to learn about both the performance and production of a musical stage show. The camp will run June 10 through July 26 with performances scheduled for July 27 and 28.
