Inspired by “The Grinch Who Stole Christmas”, The Grunch tells the story of Rudy Grunch, a grumpy 6th grader who always feels like an outsider. When the entire school gets excited about the annual school musical, he comes up with a perfect plan to ruin it for everyone; he’ll steal the sets, costumes and lights the night before it opens. But will the spirit of theatre prevail?

Summer Main Stage Musical!
Auditions: May 21 & 22 from 6:30 - 9:30 pm; Callbacks on May 23
Show Dates: August 11-20
Auditions will be held for BDACT’s Summer Production of “Into the Woods” on Sunday, May 21st, and Monday, May 22nd, from 6:30 – 9:30. Callbacks (if necessary) will be held on Tuesday, May 23rd. You are only required to attend one night of preliminary auditions, but everyone should plan on keeping Tuesday open should you get called back. We anticipate that you will be at auditions for about 45 minutes to an hour. Auditions will consist of singing a song selection, a quick monologue, and possibly readings from the script. There will be no dance audition.
We are looking for dynamic performers that are up to the challenge to tackle this incredibly intricate piece of theatre!
Below you will find all the pertinent audition information and materials. Please read through everything prior to auditioning. People who wish to audition for the show should pick one song from the selections below. You will only be allowed to sing one song, so choose the song that most closely aligns with the role you hope to get. You should also familiarize yourself with the readings and memorize one of the two monologues. If you have your audition form filled out before you come to audition, it will save you lots of time once you arrive. Please notate all conflicts on your form. We will rehearse 4-5 nights per week for the majority of the rehearsal period, but they may differ from week to week depending on conflicts.
Video Submissions are more than welcome, but must be submitted before 9:30 pm on Tuesday, May 23rd.
Any video submissions, questions regarding auditions, rehearsals, or performances should be directed to Ryan Madala-Klug, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 920-698-6414.

Audition Musical Selections
James Lapine and Stephen Sondheim take everyone's favorite storybook characters and bring them together for a timeless, yet relevant, piece... and a rare modern classic. The Tony Award-winning book and score are both enchanting and touching.
The story follows a Baker and his wife, who wish to have a child; Cinderella, who wishes to attend the King's Festival; and Jack, who wishes his cow would give milk. When the Baker and his wife learn that they cannot have a child because of a Witch's curse, the two set off on a journey to break the curse. Everyone's wish is granted, but the consequences of their actions return to haunt them later with disastrous results.
One of Sondheim's most popular works, Into the Woods is a musically sophisticated show with the opportunity to feature actors adept at dark comedy.
