Call Out: Open Auditions for Male Actor

Call Out: Open Auditions for Male Actor

Improbable Fiction Theatre Company (IFTC) is holding open auditions for the part of Christopher Robin, seeking a male actor with a stage age between 16 and 28, for its production of A.A. Milne’s The House at Pooh Corner, adapted by Bettye Knapp.

This gentle children’s comedy presents the Winnie-the-Pooh characters you know and love as they face their greatest challenge yet – Education! Christopher Robin turns to this friends Pooh, Piglet, Eeyore, Tigger, and the rest when he finds out that he’s to be sent away to school. They can’t bear to be separated, so they come up with a bold plan to run away to the South Pole. The hilarious antics as the group tries to organize in time to save Christopher Robin from his dire fate will delight audience members of all ages!

Audition:
Auditioners will be doing cold readings from the script, but they optionally can prepare a one-minute monologue. This is truly OPTIONAL and is offered only for actors who feel like cold readings don’t showcase their talents well.

Audition Date & Location:
Sunday, January 26, 2020
7:00 p.m.
Bethel Lutheran Church: 20650 Cumberland Rd, Noblesville, IN

Rehersal & Performance Schedule:
The play runs April 17-19 and April 24-26 at the Recreation Annex Auditorium. Rehearsals will be Sundays, Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 7:00 p.m. until 9:30, beginning March 8, and will be held at Bethel Lutheran Church. (Tech week will go later than 9:30.)
