CHITTY CHITTY BANG BANG TO HOLD LOCAL CHILDREN'S AUDITIONS

FOR THE NATIONAL TOURING PRODUCTION'S

FT. LAUDERDALE ENGAGEMENT COMING TO THE

BROWARD CENTER FOR THE PERFORMING ARTS NOV 18-30

PRESENTED BY Broadway Across America - FT. LAUDERDALE

AND FLORIDA THEATRICAL ASSOCIATION

AUDITIONS WILL BE HELD ON SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 28 AT 10:00AM

CHITTY CHITTY BANG BANG, the fantasmagorical Broadway musical, is searching for six children in the Ft. Lauderdale area to make their stage debut as CHITTY launches the First National Tour at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts November 18 through November 30, 2008.

Based on the timeless novel by Ian Fleming, author/creator of the James Bond franchise, the production features the music and lyrics by the legendary Sherman brothers, composers of Mary Poppins. The national tour also features an original script and fresh adaptation directed by Ray Roderick. CHITTY CHITTY BANG BANG boasts a score, including "Truly Scrumptious," "Toot Sweets," "Hushabye Mountain," and the Oscar nominated title song, "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang."

Auditions will be held at The Broward Center for the Performing Arts in the Abdo New River Room on Sunday, September 28 at 10:00am. Auditioning children are to arrive no later than 9:45am accompanied by a parent or guardian to signup for the audition. Auditions will begin promptly at 10:00am.

Each child will be asked to sing a cappella 16 bars from one uptempo song of choice. Children should be prepared to learn and execute simple choreography as part of the audition process. No decisions will be announced at any time during the auditions.

Six children will be selected for the ensemble, and they will appear as orphans in Act 2 of every performance. Two alternates will also be chosen. Approximate ages should be between 8 and 12 years old - and have the appearance of children, NOT young adults. Professional experience and headshots are not required.

The local children cast in the production and their parents or guardians will be provided rehearsal and performance information. The children will not receive any compensation, however this is a wonderful opportunity for children from Ft. Lauderdale to perform onstage with professional actors without having to ever leave town.

Evenings Tuesday,Wednesday,Thursday, Friday,Saturday at 8pm
