The Huntsville Theatre Company (HTC) and producer Mallary Duncan have announced auditions for the first show of the HTC 2019/2020 season, Anne of Green Gables–The Musical.
Based on L.M Montgomery’s timeless classic, Anne of Green Gables–The Musical follows Anne Shirley, a feisty, red-haired orphan who arrives in the small community of Avonlea to the surprise of the Cuthberts, who were expecting a boy. The story follows the precocious and imaginative Anne as she captures the hearts and minds of the small community—and her newfound family—simply by the virtue of her own pluck and personality.
Anne of Green Gables–The Musical will be performed October 3-6, 2019 at the Algonquin Theatre. Rehearsals begin July 21 on Sundays and Wednesdays. With a cast of almost 30 and limitless ensemble opportunities, everyone (ages 10+) is encouraged to audition.
Director and Producer Mallary Duncan said she is excited to partner with HTC to present their first full-scale musical at the Algonquin Theatre.
“Musical theatre is my passion and I am thrilled to direct Canada’s longest-running musical on the Algonquin Theatre stage,” said Duncan. “With beautiful music, joyful dancing and a heart-warming story about being yourself, ‘Anne’ is a show for all ages. I hope to see everyone in our talented community come out to be a part of this adventure! Life is better with music and there can never be too much of it in our lives.”
HTC invites anyone interested in participating in Anne of Green Gables–The Musical to open auditions. Bring a short song to sing and be prepared to do some choreography.
Open auditions will be held at the Algonquin Theatre from 10am-1pm on Sunday July 7, 2019.
