Classic Acts – It's Tough Being The Prince

Ages: 10-18
Prince Daring must find a hero job, but there aren't many damsels in distress, or many dragons to slay anymore either! He battles a
three-headed dragon and giant thorns to reach Sleeping Beauty and awaken her with a kiss! However, she is not pleased and refuses to
believe she's slept for 100 years or anything else!  So he must slay another dragon and bring back its head before he can win her hand in
marriage. He seeks the most ferocious dragon around, Lavalips, only to find Lavalips is retired and just wants to have tea and make
friends. What's a Prince to do?  You will love being a part of this play full of humor, stage combat, singing, and dancing.  Don't miss it!

Classic Acts Auditions:
-Actors must be 10-20 years of age.

-Actors should arrive as close to the beginning of audition time as possible. (Auditions start at 5:00, so any time after 4:30 is fine.) Each person auditioning will fill out an audition form.  Actors will audition in the order they signed up, unless someone informs directors they have to leave early.

-No preparation is necessary.  Actors will be given 1 or 2 pages of the script and a role, along with 2 to 6 other actors.  The small group will briefly practice the pages given, and then perform them onstage for the Directors. (With script, not memorized). Occasionally actors are asked to switch roles or to read again.

-Because this play has music and dancing, we are also asking actors to prepare a 15 to 30 second A Capella song. Do not be overly concerned if you have limited singing and dancing experience.  The directors want to see your ability to blend with other singers/dancers and project your voice for the Ensemble as well as solos.

-After all the auditioning actors have read, sung and danced, the Directors will take about 20 minutes to decide roles for the play, while the actors play improv theatre games.

-Roles are announced that evening, so it is preferable that all actors remain for the entire 2 hours of auditions so they are there for the announcement of the cast.  (If this is not possible, we will call or email them that evening.) Please let the directors know if you have to leave early.

-Parents are welcome to stay in the theatre during auditions, but it is not necessary. Rehearsals are closed.

-Cast members will be allowed to miss only 2 rehearsals .
However, there are no rehearsals the week of Douglas County school break (Oct 8-12).  Having to arrive late or leave early for any rehearsals should be discussed with the directors.

-Since we will also performing at the PACE Center on June 11, 2019, actors cast must also be available the week of June 3-7 for refresher rehearsals, and June 11.
