Merry Christmas, Strega Nona Theatre Auditions

Merry Christmas, Strega Nona Theatre Auditions

September 22 & 23, 6pm & 10am
Directed by Sullivan Mackintosh

 

Celebrate the winter season on stage with Tomie de Paola’s Strega Nona and her friends in Calabria, Italy.

It’s the month of Advent and Strega Nona has set aside her magic tricks because, according to her, “Christmas has a magic all its own.” Join the foolish Big Anthony, the baker’s daughter Bambolona, and all the townspeople as they try to find the perfect gift for Strega Nona—if Big Anthony doesn’t mess everything up first!

Merry Christmas, Strega Nona is a musical with a few soloists, along with a very active ensemble of choral singers and speaking characters. Singing roles include Strega Nona (adult/senior female), Big Anthony (teen/young adult male), Bambolona (teen/young adult female), Signora Rosa (female, any age), and the “Zampognari”—singing shepherds (any gender, any age). Ensemble and non-singing roles include the Baker, Mayor, Priest, Traveling Puppeteer, and many other townspeople of all ages. There are also roles for children in 3rd grade and older: Little Paolo and his (or her) friends. We are also looking for dancers, jugglers, gymnasts, and musicians to join the ensemble.

Auditions will be at Columbia Center for the Arts on Friday, September 22 from 6-8pm and Saturday, September 23 from 10am-Noon. You only need to attend one audition time, but plan on staying the full two hours if possible. Come prepared to move, read from the script, and sing a holiday song of your choice, a cappella (unaccompanied).

Performances will be December 9, 10, 14, 15, and 16.
