Festival 56 announces children’s auditions

PRINCETON — Festival 56 announces a children’s audition for its 2013 summer season.

Auditions will be at noon Saturday at The Grace Theatre, 316 S. Main St. in Princeton. They are looking for two boys — one boy age 9-13 for MacDuff’s son in “MacBeth” and one boy age 12-14 (looks 12) for the role of Nathan on “The Full Monty.” Note to parents: Nathan sees and hears adult-themed content and he curses once. MacDuff’s son will participate and be around fight choreography, done safely with a professional choreographer, and his character may be killed on stage.

At the audition, all children will do a group warm up and will be asked to, individually, read from one or both of the scripts. Rehearsal and performance dates, for each show, will be available at the auditions. All other children wanting to be involved in performances this summer, can be through Camp 56. More information will be available at the box office after May 1.

For more information, email Laura Brigham at Festival56Auditions@live.com with the words “kids audition” in the subject line.
