Auditions have been scheduled for the following productions:
- THE ICE WOLF, on Monday, Oct. 29, at 7:30 p.m. in the Little Theatre of East High School, 1300 E. 900 South.
These are open auditions for what will be the premiere production for the Salt Lake City School District's first All-City Young People's Show, a program that is anticipated as an annual event involving not only students but adults from throughout the community.Xan S. Johnson will be guest director for Joanna Kraus' acclaimed play about a girl with white skin and hair born into an all-Eskimo village, her journey of rejection and her quest to find acceptance.
Six adults (three men, three women) and eight youths (a mix of teens and younger, both boys and girls), are needed for the production.
Prepared material is not required. Auditioners should wear clothes comfortable enough for movement.
Rehearsals will begin Nov. 1 and the production will be presented the week of Dec. 3 at East High School, including performances for both students and the public.
- THE PIRATES OF PENZANCE at the Heritage Theatre, 2505 S. Highway 89, Perry (south of Brigham City).
Robert Hunt will direct the Gilbert & Sullivan operetta. Auditions will be held on Saturday, Nov. 3, at 9 a.m., and on Wednesday, Nov. 7, at 7:30 p.m. at the theater.
There are roles for 10 to 12 men and the same number of women.
Leading roles include Frederick (lyric tenor, 20s, good, pure and wholesome); Mabel, coloratura soprano, late teens to early 20s; the Pirate King, baritone-bass, late 20s early 30s (the epitome of masculinity); Ruth, alto, middle-aged; and the Major General, a character vocalist, old and energetic.
Other specific roles to be filled: Edith, alto; Kate and Isabel, mezzo-sopranos; Sergeant, baritone/base; Samuel, baritone; the pirates (five to seven men of all ages and vocal ranges, four of whom will double as Keystone Kops), and five to seven women to portray daughters, all ages and vocal ranges.
Auditioners will be asked to sing 16 bars of an aria or classical piece to demonstrate their vocal range. No accompanist will be provided. Bring your own or a cassette tape.
Due to the slapstick nature of the show, each auditioner will also be required to tell a joke.
Performances are scheduled Jan. 18-Feb. 9, 1991, on Mondays, Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m.
