25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee -- Auditions
Red Curtain Foundation For The Arts
About the project and the company
“An eclectic group of six mid-pubescents vie for the spelling championship of a lifetime. While candidly disclosing hilarious and touching stories from their home lives, the tweens spell their way through a series of (potentially made-up) words, hoping never to hear the soul-crushing, pout-inducing, life un-affirming ‘ding’ of the bell that signals a spelling mistake. Six spellers enter; one speller leaves a champion! Winner of the Tony and the Drama Desk Awards for Best Book.” –MTI
This hilarious musical, filled with audience participation, is the final show in Red Curtain’s 2022-23 Season. Performances are May 26-June 11, 2023. The show is directed by Scott Dittman, with music direction by Stephanie Phillips.
The Red Curtain Foundation for the Arts is an all-volunteer community theatre, based in Marysville, WA. Our goal is to be a teaching theatre for all aspects of live theatre, and to promote diversity, inclusivity and visibility through the arts.
Location of Audition
Red Curtain Arts Center 9315 State Ave #J Marysville, WA 98270 We are in the same shopping center as Goodwill, with our entrance around back, behind the beauty school.
Bring a theatre resume and a headshot, or email them by 6 p.m. Monday, 3/27, to firstname.lastname@example.org. Actors should be familiar with the show and the character(s) they are auditioning for. You may be asked to read selections from the script that we provide. Please prepare 32 bars of a song that best highlights your vocal dexterity. We are looking for something in the "abnormal" theatre realm such as Sondheim or rock theatre. Please have a backing track ready or you can sing a capella. Please dress in a manner that will allow you full range of movement. The audition space can get very cold, so be prepared for temperature changes. Important Note on your Audition Time: Auditions will be in two parts - a group dance audition and an individual audition. Your time slot indicates when the dance audition starts, then individual auditions will follow. This whole process may take up to 80 minutes, so please do not leave until your individual audition is done.
