Theatre and Performing Arts — Auditions
Northbrook Theatre Children’s Company
Thank you for auditioning for Beauty and the Beast Jr. Please read the following information before viewing the cast list:
Mandatory Parent Meeting
All who are cast will attend a meeting with their parents on Sunday, January 18 at 1pm at the Leisure Center. Parents will register their children for the program at this time and cast members will read through the script and music from 2-5pm.
Sunday, March 8 at 12:30 & 4pm
Saturday, March 14 at 12:30 & 4pm
Sunday, March 15 at 12:30 & 4pm
Please note that during tech week the schedule will be adjusted and your child will rehearse more the week before their show. You will receive a full calendar at the parent meeting with exact dates of your child’s tech rehearsal.
Casting is based on ability, availability and attitude. The participation fee is $389 ($359 for Northbrook Park District residents). The fee includes a NTCC product package, consisting of a cast photo, DVD and cast party lunch on the performance date. We have spent a great deal of time choosing parts that best showcase the talent of those cast in the production. There are times that those casting a show feel a certain role fits a person’s skills and talents and you may disagree. Please understand that talent is incredibly subjective and the skills you need from one show to the next often differ. It takes many roles to create an exciting and entertaining theatrical production and we are looking forward to working with all of our casts of Beauty and the Beast Jr. this winter!
In preparation for the parent meeting on January 18 and the start of rehearsals, the director will unfortunately not be available to discuss individual auditions until after the Parent Meeting. If you have questions or concerns after auditions, we are happy to speak to you individually. Blocks of time have been set aside for conferences with the director to receive feedback on the audition. Please note that no auditions will be discussed over phone or email with the director or on the day of the Parent Meeting on the 18th. To set up an appointment, please contact the Office Supervisor, Wendy Friedman at 847·897·6153 or wfriedman @nbparks.org.
