The Paris Community Theatre is announcing the upcoming showing of their season’s big musical, Into the Woods – a Stephen Sondheim musical – running August 9th through the 19th. Tim J. Wood will direct the show.
They will be holding auditions for the show on June 4th & 5th. Rehearsals will begin on June 14th.
This is a very strong musical so be expected to ‘carry a tune’. The auditions are open to all ages from 17 – 50+. On June 4th, at 7:00pm, PCT is calling the women to audition and the following day, June 5th, at the same time, the men. Auditions will take place in the Brown Center for Creative Arts, 115 Clarksville Street. If you have any questions or problems pertaining to the scheduling of the auditions or for more information, contact email@example.com.
Into the Woods features lyrics and music by Stephen Sondheim and is a book by James Lapine. It premiered on Broadway in 1987. The main characters are taken from the stories of Jack & the Beanstalk, Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, and Rapunzel. These characters, tied together by a more original story involving a baker and his wife on their quest to begin a family, makes it a comically evoking and fun plot full of great characters — with a more adult theme, but kid friendly also. Several references to other well-known tales are made as well. The story takes the characters ‘into the woods’ and explores the consequences of their quests and wishes.
This is a big musical for Paris Community Theatre’s show season and will feature some of their best. That could be you if you come down to the auditions. There are several spots to be filled for both men and women. They are open to anyone wanting to sing, dance, and entertain.
