Playhouse sets additional auditions for ‘Hunchback’

Monday, March 22, 2021

Two additional sessions of auditions for the musical “The Hunchback of Notre Dame” have been scheduled by director Shelly McFadden.

The first will be Sunday, March 28 at 3 p.m. and the second will be Monday, March 29 at 7 p.m. Both sessions will be in the Rehearsal Center at the Hazel Day Longden Theatre in Greencastle.

The show will be produced June 1-5 and June 8-12.

Among roles in the musical are Quasimodo, the title character; Esmerelda, the beautiful dancer he falls in love with; Frollo, the archdeacon of Notre Dame; and Phoebus, the captain of the Cathedral Guard. McFadden is also looking for a large ensemble – or congregation. Numerous supporting roles will be cast from the congregation. There are opportunities for many performers in singing and dancing roles.

Also needed are a few more members for the choir, who sing throughout the production. They will be auditioned during these sessions as well.

Those wishing to audition should prepare no more than 32 measures of a song. An accompanist will be provided. There will also be a dance portion of the audition.

All those auditioning should be at least 16 years of age. Those attending should wear masks, and social distancing will be observed during the process.
