Child Actors Needed for ‘Our Town’
Roles to be filled by Oct. 2.
The Minnesota State University, Mankato Department of Theatre & Dance is looking for children to fill some roles in upcoming mainstage production of "Our Town,” playing Nov. 6-16 in the Ted Paul Theatre. Children for roles in “Disney’s Beauty and the Beast” and “To Kill A Mockingbird” have already been cast.
Children are needed to play Joe Crowell, Si Crowell, Wally Webb and Rebecca Gibbs (see character descriptions below). Please contact director Matthew Caron at 507-351-1611 or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org to set up a time to audition. There is no need to prepare anything, as auditions will be cold readings of a short section of the script. We are looking to have all roles filled by Thursday, Oct. 2.
Characters to be cast are:
Rebecca Gibbs (around age 11): George’s younger sister. She is in two scenes in the play; both in Act 1 has about 13 lines in total. She is vivacious and thoughtful.
