AUDITIONS FOR NEW PROGRAM run by Becca Duval & Marcus Fink.

For ages 10 to 18 will take place on Thursday, November 16, 2017 from 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm.

**If you have a conflict with this date, please contact us ASAP to arrange an alternate audition prior to that date**

We are excited to be offering 3 new performance opportunities for ages 10 to 18. This is a new program and everyone may not be cast in these productions.

This program is not a CAST class. We will be moving at a very quick pace. Actors will have specific script requirements to fulfill before they come in for the first rehearsal.

There is no fee to audition. If you are cast in any of the shows, there is a $75.00 non-refundable participation fee. There are no scholarships or family discounts available for this program.
You can audition for 1, 2 or all 3 productions. If you are cast in more than one production, it is still the $75.00 fee (regardless if you are in one or more).

All auditions and rehearsals will take place at CAST children's theatre, 113 Summit Street, Manchester, CT. Rehearsals will be Sunday afternoons and/or Tuesday evenings. Most rehearsals will be once a week; but on occasion we may need two rehearsals. This will not be an every week occurrence. Rehearsal schedules will be announced when the cast lists are sent out. We understand conflicts come up. Please talk to us if this is a concern you have. We can work with you.

Audition Information:
If you are auditioning for one of the musicals, you must come prepared with the music we will provide once we receive this audition registration form.

We will have everyone do some readings that night. Readings will be determined on November 16th during the audition time.
If we need any type of call back, it will all be done during the 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm time slot.

If you have any questions, please contact CAST at or 860.649.5062.

Productions we are offering:

A new take on Stephen Sondheim’s and James Lapine’s groundbreaking musical fairytale about wishes and the choices we make.


Be careful what you wish for as Stephen Sondheim’s and James Lapine’s cockeyed fairytale comes to life in this adaptation of their groundbreaking, Tony Award-winning musical.  Into the Woods JR. features all of your favorite characters – Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack (and his beanstalk) and the Witch in this lyrically rich retelling of classic Brothers Grimm fables.

The musical centers on a baker and his wife, who wish to have a child; Cinderella, who wishes to attend the King's festival; and Jack, who wishes his cow would give milk. When the baker and his wife learn that they cannot have a child because of a witch's curse, the two set off on a journey to break the curse and wind up changed forever.

Performance Dates: Thursday - Saturday, February 22-24, 2018. All performances are at 7:00 pm.


Hollie Berry and her kids are opening up an old resort hotel they recently inherited, and it seems like it’s going to be a roaring success.  First, a pair of bird-watching sisters, Patty and Pearl Partridge, show up, followed by high profile guests from Liechtenstein — the Count and Countess of Monte Sisco.  Unfortunately, it doesn’t take long for things to go south.  A diamond bracelet belonging to the Countess suddenly goes missing.  When someone suggests it was swiped by a ghost, the Partridge sisters confess they’re not birdwatchers, but ghost hunters trying to gather footage for a reality show they want to sell.  According to them, the ghost of a mobster, Rat Face Louie, has haunted the hotel since he was gunned down there.  You can imagine everyone’s surprise when the very next guest is a classic gangster-looking man!  He’s followed by a pair of the worst folk-singing hippies ever!  In this spirited comedy, Hollie and her kids quickly learn that nobody at their hotel is who they say they are.  In fact, you could say they’re all traveling Inn-Cognito!

Performance Dates: Thursday - Saturday, March 15-17, 2018. All performances are at 7:00 pm.


All our old friends, plus a few new ones, are here in this marvelous musical adaptation.  We’ll meet the captivating Princess Snow White, the prince, the evil queen, and, of course, the seven mischievous dwarfs — Sarge, Gabby, Gloomy Gus, Ticklish, Spritely, Snore, and Slowpoke.  There’s also a hilarious palace cat and an enchanted vixen — a fox, you could say!  Following the traditional storyline, the fairy tale is brought to life with an eclectic score of toe-tapping tunes.

Performance Dates: Thursday - Saturday, April 19-21, 2018. All performances are at 7:00 pm.

Into the Woods, Jr. is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI.
