“Beastly” Casting Call at SSC

SOUTH HOLLAND, IL – The Children’s Theatre Company of South Suburban College will hold open auditions for Michele L. Vacca’s unique adaptation of the classic fairy tale, Beauty and the Beast. The auditions will take place on September 29 and 30, beginning at 7:00 p.m. Readings will be held in the Kindig Performing Arts Center on the main campus at 15800 S. State Street in South Holland, IL.

Director Ellie Shunko of Lansing is looking for an ensemble of eight actors, ranging in age from 18 to 70 plus, who are capable of playing a variety of characters. Being fairly physically fit, a willingness to try anything, a sense of fun and loads of energy are big bonuses.

Performances are scheduled for January 14 & 17-21, 2017 and will be held during the day for local grammar school aged children. Auditioners must be willing and able to take off work or classes for dress rehearsals and performances.

Auditions are open to all community members as well as SSC students. Appointments and prepared audition materials are not necessary. Auditioners will read from scenes, which will be available at the time of auditions. Copies of the script are on reserve in the SSC library. Everyone is welcome to attend both auditions. Be prepared to list all conflicts with the rehearsal schedule.
