The Marathon Center for the Performing Arts will be holding auditions for Youtheatre’s fall production of “Mary Poppins Jr.”
Auditions will be held at 6 p.m. Aug. 27 and 28. Check-in will be at 5:30 p.m. and auditions will last until 8 p.m. All participants are expected to stay for the entirety of the audition period.
Auditions are open to students in grades 6-12 including an on-stage cast of no more than 40 students in addition to positions on the production’s technical crew.
Students who wish to audition or apply for the technical crew must register and complete the required forms which can be found on the Youtheatre page of the Marathon Center’s website: MarathonCenterArts.org/Education/Youtheatre.
Students only need to attend one night of auditions. Those auditioning for the on-stage cast need to come prepared for movement. Youth interested in the technical crew will only need to register online with the audition form.
The director is Samantha Henry. The production staff includes Zachary Thomas as music director, Brenda Hoyt-Brackman as choreographer, Isaac Steinhour as technical director and Debra Searls as costumer.
Performances are slated for Oct. 19-21 at the Marathon Center, 200 W. Main Cross St. Times are still to be determined.
