The Williamson County Parks and Recreation Department’s award-winning children’s theatre group, the Star Bright Players, present open auditions for “Chitty Chitty Bang Bang” on Sunday, September 18 at Freedom Middle School Theatre, 750 Highway 96 West. Auditions for new participants in Star Bright will be from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m., followed by returning Star Bright Player auditions from 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.
For this production, all children must be age 7 through high school seniors at the time of the audition. Children may arrive anytime during these time periods, but must be prepared to wait. The director is looking for children who are vocal and expressive. Children will need to be able to sing a song in the Musical Theatre genre and may bring sheet music or a CD/iPod with music to sing along with if they choose. Some children may be “called back” for a second audition to be held on Monday, September 19 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at Freedom Middle School.
“Chitty Chitty Bang Bang” is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI. Production dates will be December 1-4.
