MAINSTAGE AUDITION RESULTS - LITTLE RED RIDING HOOD & RUMPELSTILTSKIN: THE MUSICAL

IMPORTANT!
PLEASE READ ALL INFORMATION ON THIS PAGE! PARENTS READ, TOO!

After hours upon hours of deliberation and then more conversations all day today, we have decided upon the cast list for Little Red Riding Hood and Rumpelstiltskin : The Musical. We have also selected our Ensemble group for this term. Additionally, you will find postings for our Crew, Front of House Teams, and Showtime Pals.

Please look for your name carefully. If you signed up for crew, front-of-house, Showtime Pal, etc., your name might be in both shows in different categories.

We will be in touch soon regarding Teaching Apprenticeships. These positions need to be decided amongst our entire staff here at DJT. We will contact Teaching Apprentices individually, using contact info supplied. Students will be contacted by the end of December / early January.

Thanks again to all the students who auditioned! We mean it here at Davenport Junior Theatre when we say you should all be very proud of your audition. You were all very brave and we were really impressed with your talents.

Unfortunately, we were not able to cast everyone who auditioned as we have a limited number of roles. Many considerations go into selecting a cast. We have to cast a variety of students and take into account all sorts of consideration to fulfill the vision of our director and design team.

Whether you were cast or not, we have included a list of other awesome opportunities coming up here at DJT that you should all consider. We will have many, many more Mainstage productions and the best thing you can do between now and then is to stay involved and keep learning!

Should you have any additional questions about the audition process, do not hesitate to contact our Artistic Director, Daniel Sheridan. Click here to e-mail Daniel, or call 563/888-2216. He would be happy to chat with you about the audition.


Other Opportunities

Whether you were cast in a production or not, we hope that you will continue to explore Theatre and Dance at DJT. Be sure to check out all the great opportunities!

Theatre classes begin the week of January 12. | Dance classes begin the week of January 19.

THEATRE CLASSES
We’ve expanded our class offerings to continue to challenge all of our students. In particular, we’ve added an Intermediate and Advanced Acting course structure to be sure we challenge you as actors!

Dance for Theatre - This is a crossover class perfect for students interested in both theatre and dance! Students learn basic dance moves that are used in musical theatre performances, as well as basic tap and jazz skills that are valuable to any stage performer.

Acting Professional - In particular, students 10 years and up should take a look at our “Acting Professional” class. This class focuses on the life of a professional actor with a particular emphasis on the audition. Audition technique is key to getting cast. The class also goes on tour to local area theatres like Circa ’21, ComedySportz, QC Theatre Workshop, and more!

Suzy Lewis, longtime Junior Theatre director, will be leading our Ensemble actors. The group of 10 will be given two plays. Each play has 5 characters. Actors will be cast in both plays. You’ll learn two parts! Ensemble performs at our class showcases and we try to find a few “away shows” that will take you out into the community.

Students cast in the Ensemble will rehearse between February 10 – April 5. We will be in touch with additional information about the Ensemble in early January. Rehearsals will be Tuesdays & Thursdays from 6:00-8:00pm, starting on Tuesday, February 10. More to come!

Performances for the group take place during DJT class showcases. We will also have some “Away Shows.” Students may take other Junior Theatre classes and still participate in the Ensemble.

Performance Dates
Monday, April 6 through Thursday, April 9 : 4:45 - 8:30pm each day (Shows @ 5:30pm & 7:30pm)
Saturday, April 11 : 10:15am - 1:00pm (Shows @ 10:00am & Noon)
*Students will not be required to be there at both shows in one night, just one. More specifics to come later, but we wanted you to have these dates.

There is a $75.00 enrollment fee for the Ensemble. Payment may be made at the first Ensemble rehearsal by cash or check. Information will be sent to you in your packet.
