Are there any parts for teenage lads in JRB's Parade? A local company are staging it and I was wondering whether if I can audition for any particular part.

yes there is a part for you in show. the part frankie epps. he has 2 songs one of them is a cute duet with a girl he has a crush on and the other is a solo with the rest of the cast at the end . this would be a great part for a "young laid" aroud the age of 17-22 the charector is like around 16-17 put an older actor can play the part as long as he looks young. i hope this helps :) if you have any more questions ask :)

Well, I'm a young looking 16 actually, more like early 15. Would this be a problem? What's the actual role of Frankie Epps like?

Thanks for your help re: re: Parade

i think your age is right for the part. frankie is a energitc young boy i believe he works for the factory. he has a crush on mary phagan they sing the song "the picture show". mary is then killed and frankie express his anger and hurt in the song "it dont make sense" his role is a minor part he is mostly seen at the beginning of the show. the actor that palys the role must have a strong voice i believe the role is a tenor part(not sure), i hope this helps :)

Thanks so much! I'm going to email the director now and ask about whether I've missed the audition, I shouldn't have done, it's in October.

Will certainly do so. I read that they've had their first rehearsal, which is crazy, it's months away. They are a very good amateur company though who do like perfection. Anyways, they usually cast kids after rehearsals are underway - I was in Oliver and Scrooge with the same musical director, who is the artistic director of this company.

cool. but i think you should still call him and see if he has cast the part that you want and if not tell him that you are interested in it :)

I dont think frankie is a factory worker. But he does sing three great songs- 2 ballads and a very funny uptempo, his songs are allmost better than Leo Franks...if only I wasnt 6'4'' I couldshave my beard and I would be able to play the part, tell us if you audition and get it.
