GODSPELL to Hold Auditions for 'Cast of 2032', 4/24
Producer Ken Davenport announced today that on Tuesday, April 24 at Circle in the Square Theatre (1633 Broadway at 50th Street), aspiring young Broadway hopefuls (ages 6-16) can audition for "The GODSPELL Cast of 2032."
"GODSPELL has always had a tradition of launching the next generation of stars," said Ken Davenport. "From the cast members of the original productions like Martin Short, Victor Garber, Andrea Martin, Jeremy Irons and so on, to the cast members of our current production who I have no doubt you'll be hearing a lot from in the years to come. So we decided, why not get a preview of tomorrow's Broadway stars?"
The April 24 "GODSPELL Cast of 2032" auditions will take place from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. All kids should be prepared to sing 16 bars of any song, a cappella.
GODSPELL's creative team will choose ten young performers (five girls and five boys) for a special encore performance during the curtain call at the Tuesday, May 22 (8 p.m.) performance at Circle in the Square.
Rehearsals will take place between April 30 and May 21.
