Job Title:
Open Auditions for "The Fantasticks!"
Job Location:
Seattle, WA
Job Description:
Trinity Lutheran College announces OPEN auditions for its Spring Playfest Musical, The Fantasticks. Auditions will be held Feb 14 and 15 at the Historic Everett Theatre at 2911 Colby Ave in downtown Everett. Rehearsals will be held at Trinity Lutheran College in downtown Everett. Performances will be April 1-3, also at the Historic. There are no paid roles for this show. The Fantasticks is a 1960 musical with music by Harvey Schmidt and lyrics by Tom Jones. It tells the story of two neighboring fathers who trick their children, Luisa and Matt, into falling in love by pretending to feud and erecting a wall between their houses. The fathers then hire traveling actors to stage a mock abduction, so that Matt can heroically seem to save Luisa, settling the supposed feud and securing their fathers' blessings (which of course the young lovers have really had all along). After the children discover the deception, they reject the arranged love match. Each goes off to experience the wider world. They return to each other bruised but enlightened by their journeys, realizing that they have always been in love, and renew their vows with more maturity.

The show was written for seven men and one woman, but there is the possibility casting females for two of the “male” roles.
