Kids at HART opening auditions

Written by 

Haywood Arts Regional Theatre in Waynesville will have open auditions for its Kids at HART program for the upcoming December production of “The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.”

Auditions will be held in the Fangmeyer Theater at 4 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 22. The roles of Aslan the Lion, the White Witch, and Father Christmas will be cast as adults. All other characters will be cast as children and young adults from age 8 and up including: the children Lucy, Edmund, Susan and Peter; Mr. and Mrs. Beaver; Tumnus; the unicorn and centaur; Fenris Ulf; the dwarf; the elf; the white stag; Aslan’s followers; the Witch’s army and wood nymphs and all other creatures of Narnia.

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. We also need costumers, light and sound operators.

Dramatized for the stage by Joseph Robinette, this play closely follows the classic tale by C.S. Lewis, and faithfully recreates the magic and mystery of Aslan, the great lion, his struggle with the White Witch, and the adventures of the four children who inadvertently wander from an old wardrobe into the exciting, never-to-be-forgotten Narnia.

This story of love, faith, courage and giving, with its triumph of good over evil, is a true celebration of life.

There are four performances for Kids at HART’s production of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe: Saturday, Dec. 9 and 16 and Sunday, Dec. 10 and 17, all at 2 p.m.

Rehearsals are generally scheduled on Thursday and Friday afternoons and Saturday mornings, but may also include additional Sunday afternoon rehearsals if needed.
