Community Youth Play planning begins
School begins soon and so does rehearsal for the community youth play! This year’s play will be a musical by Stephen Schwartz called Captain Louie Jr.
Captain Louie Jr. spins a tale of young Louie, the new kid in town who feels lonely and without friends in his new neighborhood. Looking for something to cheer himself up on Halloween Night, Louie returns to his old neighborhood friends in an imaginary journey on the wings of his favorite toy, his little red plane.
The story is full of tricks and treats, as well as the incomparable music and lyrics of Stephen Schwartz. Most of all, Captain Louie Jr. is about friendship—the ability to make new friends and the importance of old ones.
There will be roles for 11 kids. (Primarily casting grades 4-8)
This year’s production will include a community chorus that enhances the vocal numbers. The chorus will be seated upstage of the action and sing all the number with the cast. All ages welcome for the chorus.
Auditions for Captain Louie will be September 9 at 3:30 p.m. for a role in the production. Audition information is available at http://broadwayjr.com/audition/auditionlist.asp?ID=000323. There will be a chorus interest meeting September 9 at 6:30 p.m. for anyone interested in singing in the chorus.
