We are currently scheduling auditions for the following:
Great Lakes Theater (GLT) announces open auditions for non-equity actors for the Classics On Tour production THE JABBERWOCKY, a play for young audiences, written by Dakotah Brown, Noah Moody and Chad Shohet, and based on the classic poem by Lewis Carroll. THE JABBERWOCKY will tour to 50 community venues in northern Ohio between February 21 and March 24, 2016, Tuesdays through Sundays, often two performances daily. The play will be directed by GLT Director of Educational Programming Lisa Ortenzi.
Synopsis: Two students - Dodgson and Steve - band together after being bullied by classmates. To avoid their tormentors, the students follow a secret map and escape to the Tulgey Wood - where they meet a king who begs them to save his people from the fearsome Jabberwocky! Meet colorful characters like Cheshire Cat, JubJub Bird, Bandersnatch, and a family of Momeraths as this unlikely but dynamic duo journeys to save a kingdom. Along the way, they find the courage to defeat the Jabberwocky...and apply the lessons learned to face their fears back home.
