Back to All Non-Equity Listings



        Calling all boys! Here’s your chance to join a professional acting company. Goodspeed Musicals is holding auditions for local Non-Equity child actors (BOYS between ages 10-13) for its upcoming production of Irving Berlin’s Holiday Inn. Auditions will be held on Saturday, March 22nd from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm at The Norma Terris Theatre in Chester, Conn. 

      Auditions are for Charlie Winslow. A precocious, brutally honest 10 year-old, Charlie works part time as a messenger for the town bank. Never one to mince words, Charlie speaks his opinions loudly and asks a lot of questions; particularly when he's been reading the confidential messages he is delivering. Seeking an excellent young character actor with strong speaking and singing voice – and a great sense of humor.    

      All auditions are by appointment only. Appointments may be made starting immediately. Please call Company Management at(860) 873-8664, ext. 387, Monday through Friday, 10 am - 5 pm.

      Interested performers should prepare two songs (up-tempo and ballad, 32 bars – not the entire song). Bring a resume, photo and sheet music. Music must be legible and in the proper key (no lead sheets please). An accompanist will be provided.

      Candidates must be available for rehearsals, August 19 – September 18, and performances, September 19 – November 30. Rehearsals and performances occur in East Haddam, Conn. 

     Performers of all ethnicities are strongly encouraged to audition.
