(November 29, 2022) — Oddfellows Playhouse Youth Theater announces auditions for the Junior Repertory Company mainstage production of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. Auditions will be held on Monday, December 12, and Thursday, December 15, 2022, from 4:30 to  6:30 p.m., at Oddfellows Playhouse, 128 Washington Street in Middletown. Auditions are open to all young people ages 12 – 14.

Young people wishing to audition must pre-register for one of the two audition dates by contacting the Playhouse. Auditioners do not need to prepare anything, but should arrive on time, dress to move, and plan on staying for the entire two hours. Auditions will include movement, improvisation, and readings from the script. Everyone who auditions and commits to the rehearsal and production schedule will be cast in the show.

The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, adapted by Joseph Robinette from the book by C.S Lewis, follows four siblings who mistakenly wander through a wardrobe into the Land of Narnia. There they become caught up in a fierce battle between the lion Aslan and the White Witch, and all kinds of adventures ensue.

Rehearsals will be Mondays and Thursdays, 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. starting January 9, 2023. There will be a technical rehearsal on March 11th, and daily rehearsals, March 13 – 15, 2023. Performances will be March 16 – 18, 2023 at 7:00 p.m., with a 2:00 p.m. matinee performance on Saturday, March 18th.
