Gallery 7 production needs performers for Fantasticks
Gallery 7 Theatre is holding open auditions for its final production of the season, The Fantasticks, dubbed the longest running musical in Broadway history.
The show will run June 8 – 23 at the MEI Theatre in Abbotsford.
“I’ve wanted to include this show in our season for a while now,” said Ken Hildebrandt, Gallery 7 Theatre’s executive artistic director.
“It’s a beautiful story about family, love, innocence and when that innocence is shattered.”
Set on a simple platform suggesting a timeless period and nameless location, a story of love plays out as young sweet-hearts enjoy innocent bliss and romance. When they discover their courtship is the result of the manipulations of their two fathers, the seeds of rebellion are sown and the temptations of the world threaten to pull them apart forever.
The Fantasticks will be directed by Langley resident Charlene Crawford, a renaissance woman in theatre. She performed in both The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe and Chickens at Gallery 7 Theatre, has stage managed numerous productions, and has co-directed productions of Twelve and Revolution.
Auditions will be held on March 28 at 6:30 p.m. at the MEI Theatre, 4081 Clearbrook Road.
They are open to male and female performers aged 16 and up. Interested individuals will be asked to read a brief monologue and sing a short musical number.
