Casting Call for Rapunzel at SSC

SOUTH HOLLAND, IL – The Children’s Theatre Company of South Suburban College announces open auditions for Michele L. Vacca’s “Rapunzel and the Frog Prince.” It’s a uniquely comical mashup that cleverly blends the two Grimm’s tales into one story. This isn’t your standard fairy tale!

The auditions will take place on September 28 and 29, 2017 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 will cast 12 actors between the ages of 18 and 70 of all ages, colors and sizes. 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 13 and 16-20, 2018 and will be held during the day for local grammar school aged children. Cast members are required to attend all 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.
