Theater group to hold "Little Women" auditions

The Jamestown Community Theatre will hold auditions for its upcoming non-musical production of Louisa May Alcott's "Little Women" on Sunday, Feb. 8.

The auditions will take place at the Jamestown Country Club and will be scheduled between 1 and 5 p.m.

People of all backgrounds and levels of experience are welcome. The production includes roles for Jamestown men and women of all ages and for children 8 and older.

Adult actors are asked to prepare a brief two-minutes monologue. Children may choose to recite a favorite short story or poem. Some actors may also be asked to read from scenes provided at the audition.

Rehearsals will generally be held Sunday afternoons and Tuesday evenings, and performances are May 15 through 17.

More frequent rehearsals will be scheduled closer to the production dates and rehearsals will not be scheduled during school vacations. Volunteers are also needed in other areas of production, such as costuming, set design, house and stage management.

To schedule an audition time, volunteer, or ask any questions you may have call director Lisa Kerr at 423-1283.

The Jamestown Community Theatre is a non-profit organization committed to fostering the growth of arts, culture, social awareness, and the education of Jamestown's young people through the joint involvement of youth and adults in the theater experience. Existing under the Jamestown Recreation Department and overseen by an active board of directors, all those who make up the cast and crew, from the backstage to lighting to set construction to costumes to promotions, are Jamestowners.
