Cortland Repertory Theatre, Cortland NY,  is announcing local Youth Auditions for actors between the ages of 10 – 18 for two summer musicals: “Big River” (dates are May 25 – June 20, including rehearsals): a musical based on the novel “The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn” by Mark Twain; music by Roger Miller, book by William Hauptman; and “Finian’s Rainbow” (dates are June 23 – July 18, including rehearsals), a timeless Broadway musical with music by Burton Lane, lyrics by E. “Yip” Harburg and book by Harburg and Fred Saidy.

CRT is seeking disciplined and confident boys and girls of all races and nationalities to play primarily ensemble roles in these musicals:  Huckleberry’s friends, townspeople, residents of Rainbow Valley, etc.

Auditions will be held on Thursday, January 23 from 4:00 – 7:00 PM at CRT Downtown, 24 Port Watson Street, Cortland. At 7:00 PM, a movement/dance callback will be held, at which a dance combination will be taught to those individuals asked to stay.

Auditionees should also come prepared with comfortable dance attire and shoes in case they are asked to attend the movement/dance callback at 7:00 PM that evening.
