Fort Bend Theatre will be holding auditions for The Fantasticks on Thursday, March 15 at 2815 N Main Street, Stafford, from 7pm-9pm. Directed by Chris Tennison, show dates are May 11-June 10 (Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm and Sundays at 3pm).
To date, it is the world’s longest running show still in its original theater, the world’s longest running musical and the longest running show in American theatre history. The Fantasticks is a classic, charming and very comedic storyline about a parental ploy to make their two teenage children fall in love…and whether their young love will survive the longing to explore the big world beyond.
Roles are available for teenagers and adults. Characters include two teenagers in love, two meddling fathers, a Spanish conquistador, a mute, an Indian and an old actor. Auditioners should bring their sheet music or accompaniment cd (with no vocal please) and be prepared to sing. Please bring your headshot or a recent photo and resume.
