Grandstreet Theatre is hosting auditions for "The Giver," adapted by Eric Coble from the Newbery Award-winning book by Lois Lowry.
Auditions will be on Wednesday, Jan. 4, from 6:30-9:30 p.m. and there is a potential callback on Thursday, Jan. 5. Rehearsal will be held Jan. 9 through Feb. 23. Rehearsals are flexible and are generally held Monday through Thursday evenings, with occasional rehearsals on Sunday evenings when needed.
Performances will be Feb. 24 through March 12 on Wednesday through Saturday evenings at 7:30 p.m. with Sunday matinees at 2:30 p.m. Those who plan to audition should have a Giver audition packet. Packets can be picked up at the Grandstreet Box Office or downloaded from their website. The audition packet will have more instructions about what to prepare for the audition. Please come in clothing that you are comfortable moving in, as you will be doing some group warm ups and a few physical activities in addition to the readings.
Those who audition must submit a Giver Audition Form on the night you audition. Forms can be picked up at the Grandstreet Box Office or downloaded from their website at grandstreettheatre.com. Please come with your audition form already filled out. This form has important calendar and schedule information that is necessary for the casting process.
