The Savannah Performing Arts Company is holding open auditions for its upcoming summer production of “The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.”
Auditions will be held at the Historic Savannah Theater on Court Square, on Saturday, June 10. The roles of Aslan the Lion and the White Witch, also known as the Snow Queen, will be cast as adults. All other characters, including the children Lucy, Edmund, Susan and Peter; Mr. and Mrs. Beaver; Tumnus; the unicorn and centaur; Fenris Ulf; the dwarf; Father Christmas; the elf; the white stag; Aslan’s followers; the Witch’s army and wood nymphs and all other creatures of Narnia will be cast as children and young adults from age 6 and up.
Auditions for children and young adults are from 2-4 p.m., and adults hoping to land the role of Aslan or the White Witch will audition from 4-6 p.m.
The play requires a minimum cast of 16 actors, but there are fun parts available for a much larger cast, and in a play like this, it is truly “the more, the merrier.” This is a perfect play for everyone from beginner actors to seasoned thespians.
