West Side Story - MYT
Middlesbrough Youth Theatre are looking to hold open auditions for the adult roles in West Side Story. (15th-19th November)
There are no audition dates yet, but if you are interested please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about the Characters/ dates and rehearsal commitment.
The parts for adults are:
Officer Krupke - The local beat cop. He has no patience for the gangs conflict and tries to keep tensions from erupting between them. A little dorky, he is regularly mocked by the local gangs. Speaking Role. No dance background required.
Detective Schrank - A local police detective frustrated by the ongoing violence between the Jets and Sharks. Blunt, brash, and unapologetic. Speaking Role. No dance background required.
Doc - The adult owner of the store where the Jets hang out. He tries to guide the Jets youthful angst and provides a safe haven for Tony. Old fashioned and wise in his ways. Speaking Role. No dance background required.
We're on Facebook and Twitter!
Directed by Wendie Middleton. For more details/queries please email email@example.com
All the English characters are in their 60s.
Nancy: a retired headmistress now living in Paris. Speaks French
Raquel: a divorcee in search of eternal youth and her next toyboy. Speaks French (think Dorian Green from Birds of a Feather)
Anna: recently widowed and free after years of nursing her sick husband, goes to Paris to visit her old school pal Nancy and discovers Raquel is there too. Speaks French
The French characters are in their 50s
Charlot: a French handy man. He is required to sing a little with the girls above, rugged and suave, playing the guitar is a bonus but not a deal breaker.
Madam Boussiron: elegant, sophisticated, mean French landlady of the apartment block
The director is also looking for a French tutor - not as a character, as a person to teach the cast French pronunciation.
The rehearsal period for the play is very short, so you will need to be able to attend as many rehearsals as possible. They are likely to be 2/3 nights and a week and Sunday afternoons.
