Youth Productions

 

Youth Workshop Productions

Youth Workshop Productions are performed by youth (ages 7 – 16) and for youth! These productions give young actors the opportunity to perform for a public audience while sharing the stage & set with the current Mainstage show. Workshop performers learn that the human imagination is boundless and the audience leaves with a sense that “I can do this at home!” Shows are bright, colorful & lively and include well-known children’s stories & fairy tales, often include audience participation and are family friendly!

Rehearsals:

Generally, rehearsals take place on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4-6pm, and Saturdays from 10:00-12:00.  During Tech Week (the week before the show) rehearsals will be every day from 4-6:30.  The rehearsal start date for each show is listed under the picture.

There is a small production fee to participate in Youth Workshop Productions.  (Scholarships are available on a need-based basis)

The Music Man Jr.

By Meredith Wilson

October 27-28: Saturday and Sunday at 10am

Auditions: Tuesday, September 4th 4:00-5:30

Ages 10-14

Rehearses: September 11- October 26

Based on Meredith Willson’s six-time-Tony-Award-winning musical comedy, The Music Man JR. features some of musical theatre’s most iconic songs and a story filled with wit, warmth and good old-fashioned romance.  The Music Man JR. is family entertainment at its best – a bold, brassy show that will have the whole town atwitter!

Master showman Harold Hill is in town and he’s got “seventy-six trombones” in tow. Can upright, uptight Marian, the town librarian, resist his powerful allure?  The story follows fast-talking traveling salesman, Harold Hill, as he cons the people of River City, Iowa, into buying instruments and uniforms for a boys’ band he vows to organize. The catch? He doesn’t know a trombone from a treble clef. His plans to skip town with the cash are foiled when he falls for Marian, whose belief in Harold’s power just might help him succeed in the end in spite of himself.

What should your student prepare for a Youth Workshop Production audition?

We ask that your students prepare part of a song to sing acappella (no music) and a short poem or monologue to recite (something that shows character).

It is also very helpful to bring a headshot and resume with you to the audition (It’s okay if there aren’t that many things on the resume!)  The resume should have your student’s name, contact information, and shows they have been in with the roles they have played.

The audition location is at The Seacoast Repertory Theatre (125 Bow St, Portsmouth, NH) unless otherwise noted.  The auditions are by appointment and last 5-10 minutes.  Your students will audition in front of the Director, Assistant Director, and Stage Manager.  We try to keep the auditions relaxed and as stress free as possible!

Please make sure to bring any conflicts you may have within the rehearsal period.

If you have any other questions, or need to schedule an audition time, please contact youthadmin@seacoastrep.org
