Playhouse 2000 will hold auditions for its historic epic “The King Arthur Chronicles” this Saturday, May 14th at 10am in the Old Playhouse Building on 305 Washington Street. With elections in the Cailloux Lobby, performers should come to the other side of the facility and report to the Playhouse office.
Newcomers should arrive a little early to fill out audition information.
This original play follows Arthur, a young knight in ancient Britain shortly after the death of his father, High King Uther Pendragon. The story includes Merlin, Lancelot, Guinevere, and many the characters from the King Arthur legends.
There will be a great deal of physical movement and fight choreography in the show. Local actor, dancer, swordsman, and stage fighter Chris Valentine will be involved in the show. Auditioners are asked to wear comfortable “athletic” clothes.
Auditioners will be reading from the script so no prepared material will be required. Performers under the age of 12 are not encouraged to audition for this show, but Playhouse staff members want to remind families that “The Music Man,” “The Crucible” and the Playhouse Academy (fifth year Epsilon class) will all be having auditions soon, and their will need young people. There will be some roles for young adults (12-16) and many roles for women and men. There is further detailed information at www.caillouxtheater.com
