Audition for '101 Dalmatians'
FINDLAY - The Arts Partnership of Greater Hancock County will hold auditions this month for "Disney's 101 Dalmatians KIDS."
The Youtheatre production will include an on-stage cast of approximately 40 youth, grades one through five.
Auditions for the on-stage cast will be held on Jan. 28 and 29, at 6 p.m. and are open to youth in grades one through five. Youth assistant interviews will be conducted Monday and Tuesday at 6 p.m. They are for students in grades six through 12 who are interested in working with creative and technical personnel. Auditions and interviews will be held at First Presbyterian Church, 2330 S. Main St.
The performances are slated for March 15 and 16 at 7 p.m. and March 17 at 2 p.m. at the church. Tickets will be available starting Feb. 4.
"Disney's 101 Dalmatian KIDS" is the tale of kidnappers, puppies and villains. In a loving home in London, owners Robert and Anita live with Dalmatians Pongo and Perdita as they raise their puppies. Everything is quiet until Cruella De Vil plots to steal the puppies for her new fur coat.
All students who wish to audition or interview must register and complete the required forms which can be found online at www.artspartnership.com or can be picked up at the Arts Partnership office, 618 S. Main St. A tentative rehearsal schedule is also available online and potential participants are encouraged to review the schedule prior to making a commitment to participate.
Students only need to attend one audition or interview. Those auditioning for the on-stage cast need to come prepared for movement. Youth interested in the technical crew only need to drop off materials during auditions and speak briefly with the technical staff.
The Arts Partnership of Greater Hancock County is a non-profit organization serving Findlay and Hancock County. Its mission is to provide, encourage, and promote quality arts presentations, educational opportunities and entertainment.
