New England Youth Theatre is holding open auditions


New England Youth Theatre is holding open auditions for their Winter and Spring 2019 Junior Company productions on November 4 from 1-5pm at NEYT, 100 Flat Street, in Brattleboro.

The Junior Company Spring Musical “Dear Edwina, Jr”, will be directed by Rebecca Waxman, and auditions are open for all actors ages 11-15. The story revolves around Edwina Spoonapple, a lovable heroine who assembles a goofy troupe of friends to entertain and inform her neighborhood.  Together, they set out to tackle the world’s problems in number after hysterical number about everything from overcoming shyness to proper table settings. The show begins rehearsals March 11 and performs May 3-12. Interested actors should prepare a short (one-minute or less) song (something as familiar as Happy Birthday can work!) and are encouraged to bring sheet music for accompaniment or sing on their own. Please visit for a full listing of characters and additional text to prepare. Auditions for this show are from 1-3pm on Sunday, November 4 at NEYT, 100 Flat Street, Brattleboro.

“A Wrinkle in Time” by Tracy Young will be directed by Katrina Spenceman with Julia Tadlock and is open to all young performers ages 9-13.  This adaptation of this classic tale is tailor-made for the adventurous storyteller who wants to tell this beloved tale in an unexpected way. Meg Murry, Mrs. Whatsit, Charles Wallace, Calvin O’Keefe and more will battle the forces of evil, saving Meg’s father and humanity, while ensuring that by the end we all know 2 things for sure: 1. Love CAN overcome evil, and 2. There IS such a thing as a tesseract. Rehearsals for this production begin on January 7 and the show performs March 9 – 16. Interested actors should bring a brief (one minute or less) story or poem to share and be prepared to play some group improv games. Auditions for this show are from 3-5pm on Sunday, November 4 at NEYT, 100 Flat Street, Brattleboro.

The cast sizes for both of these productions are flexible and newcomers are welcome!
