AUDITIONS

Feb. 2019: The Valley Players will hold auditions the first two weekends in February for the first three shows of their 40th Anniversary season at the Valley Players Theater, 4254 Main Street, Waitsfield. For the first time in Valley Players’ history, all the plays this coming season have been previously produced by the group.

Harvey, by Mary Chase, will be directed by Tom Badowski, with show dates Friday-Sunday, May 31-June 16. The first show produced by the Valley Players in 1979, the main character of Harvey is Elwood P. Dowd, who insists on including his friend Harvey in all of his sister Veta’s social gatherings. Trouble is, Harvey is an imaginary six-and-a-half-foot-tall rabbit.

On Golden Pond, by Ernest Thompson, will be directed by Jeanne Beckwith, with show dates Friday-Sunday, August 2-18. Originally produced here in 1982, On Golden Pond tells the love story of Ethel and Norman Thayer, who are returning to their summer home on Golden Pond for the forty-eighth year. They are visited by their divorced, middle-aged daughter and her dentist fiancé, who then go off to Europe, leaving his teenage son behind for the summer. The boy quickly becomes the “grandchild” the elderly couple have longed for.

Oliver!, by Lionel Bart, will be directed by Ruth Ann Pattee with music direction by Michael Halloran. The show dates are Friday-Sunday, October 4-20. The Tony Award-winning show first staged at the Valley Players in 2008 (also directed by Pattee) is based on Charles Dickens’ novel, Oliver Twist, about a malnourished orphan in a workhouse, whose journey through a London full of nefarious characters and fraught with danger ultimately leads him to the true love of a family.

Auditions for Harvey and On Golden Pond will be held Sunday, February 3 at 4 p.m. and Monday, February 4 at 6 p.m. Both shows are non-musicals. Harvey has roles for young adults and adults, while On Golden Pond has roles for seniors, adults and one role for a boy who looks 12-14 years old. Those coming to audition do not need to prepare anything; audition scripts will be provided.

Auditions for Oliver! will be Sunday, February 10 and Tuesday, February 12. Approximately eight children ages 5-12 will be cast as orphans and pickpockets; two children will be cast as Oliver. There are many other roles, singing and non-singing, for teens and adults. Children must be accompanied by an adult to auditions on Feb. 10 at 2 pm or Feb. 12 at 5 pm. Auditions for teen and adults will be on Feb. 10 at 6 pm or Feb, 12 at 7 pm. “I would really like to encourage parents to come and audition with their kids during the kids’ audition times,” said Pattee. “This is a great show for parents to participate in with their kids as cast members!” No preparation is needed to audition, although if those trying out for lead roles would like to prepare 36 bars of a song, opportunity will be provided to perform.

Season tickets for these shows and for the three shows in 2020 are available now. For more information, go to valleyplayers.com, email valleyplayers@madriver.com, or call 802-583-1674.

    the first professional dance company in the world dedicated to the tradition of stepping is coming to Stowe, Wednesday, February 6 at 7 pm. In stepping, the body is used as an instrument to create intricate rhythms and sounds through a combination of footsteps, claps and the spoken word. Performances are much more than dance shows; they integrate songs, storytelling, humor, and audience participation. Experience the tradition of stepping at Spruce Peak Performing Arts Center.
