COLDWATER – Tibbits Young Audiences will hold auditions for “Twinderella the Musical” starting at 5 pm January 4 and 5 at Tibbits Opera House for the show to be presented March 18-20, 2016.
“Twinderella the Musical” is a fun, musical twist and the classic story of Cinderella featuring her long lost twin brother, Bob. This version features an evil stepfather, two dorky stepbrothers and dreams of attending that all-important, all-kingdom baseball game. With other fun characters like the Marlon Brando-style fairy godfather and his associates the young actors who are cast will get to act, sing and dance into the hearts of their audiences. “Twinderella the Musical” is written by Charlie Lovett, music and lyrics by Bill Francoeur.
Auditions are open to any student in fourth through eighth grades. Students should be accompanied by a parent or guardian and bring a current, non-returnable photo. Students will be asked to introduce themselves from stage and read parts from the script. They will also be asked to sing a familiar children’s song and perform a few simple dance steps. Rehearsals will begin Jan
uary 7 and be held Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays. Not all roles meet all days. The show will be presented March 18, 19 at 7 pm and March 20 at 2 pm at Tibbits.
Tibbits Young Audiences offers programs both for and by area youth to develop their interest in the arts. Two shows yearly, a non-musical in the fall and a musical in the spring, provide students an enjoyable introduction to the world of theatre. By “putting on a show” they learn teamwork, discipline, theatre skills, self confidence and an appreciation for the arts.
“Twinderella the Musical” will be directed by Julia Littley. Approximately 50 students will be cast. Those involved will learn characterization, blocking, costuming, makeup and all aspects of a stage production.
Auditions are held at Tibbits Opera House, 14 South Hanchett Street, Coldwater, Mich. Students need only attend one time. The cast will be announced later in the week. For more information call 517.278.6029 or go to www.Tibbits.org and click on the “auditions” tab.
