The Capitol Arts Youth Theatre are holding audition for their spring production of “Odyssey”, a contemporary “Cirque-du-Soleil” style adaptation of Homer’s “Odyssey”. The show will be directed by Carol Jordan and choreographed by Ashley Gentry, with original music by Connor McDonald. Auditions will be 6:00-8:00 PM next Monday on January 31st & Tuesday February 1st. You only have to attend one evening but be prepared to stay the entire time. Auditions are open to anyone in grades 2nd-12th, and a complete audition packet is posted on the CAYT Facebook page and the Capitol website at www.capitolarts.com.
They are looking for actors, dancers, and musicians, as well as folks with any special “circus” skills such as juggling, gymnastics, etc. Message Carol Herin Jordan if you’d like to see a copy of the script.
If you play an instrument, CAYT would love to have you audition for Odyssey! They may be able to work in pretty much any instrument, but they’re especially looking for folks who play percussion, clarinet, violin, saxophone and trombone. If you play a portable, non-percussion instrument, just bring it with you to auditions. They may ask you to play a few scales or a brief musical selection.
