The Northfield Arts Guild Theater is hosting auditions for the young adult show I Was A Rat! adapted by Barbara Field from the children’s book by Philip Pullman. A delightful family-friendly tale, I Was A Rat! tells the story of Little Roger, a happy little rat chosen to be one of the coachmen for Cinderella’s carriage. Mistakenly left behind by the coach, Roger is transformed into a boy and must look for his place in the strange human world.
Adults auditioning will be asked to read a cutting from the script. Young people auditioning should come prepared to tell 1-2 minutes of a favorite fairy tale and display a wide-range of emotions. Please call the Arts Guild to schedule a short individual audition time.
I Was A Rat! is being directed by Mickey Morstad. The show features roles for 7 men and 4 women, which includes two featured young adult roles, a boy ages 10-12 and a teen boy or girl. A small youth ensemble will also be cast to play a variety of roles.
Weekend performances are scheduled for April 19-28, 2013.
