Auditions for "The Fantasticks," the longest running musical ever, will be conducted at the Putnam County Playhouse Sunday at 3 p.m. and Monday at 7 p.m.
The play, directed by Ernie Ford, will be produced at the Hazel Day Longden Theatre Aug. 9-12 and 15-18.
Roles to be cast include The Narrator, a strong singer; the boy and girl, in their late teens or 20s; two parents, ages 40-50; and three characters who are traveling entertainers, including one mute.
All those auditioning should prepare a song. There will be a short dance session and readings from the script, but the dance sessions will be Monday night.
Middle-school and high-school age performers can also pick up an application for "Shakespeared," a two-week workshop on theatre that will be conducted by Tim and Caroline Good at PCPH from June 18-30. The workshop is free and will include a production of two versions of William Shakespeare's "Romeo and Juliet." The workshop is being partially funded by the Putnam County Community Foundation.
