Auditions Announced for our Spring Production of
the Broadway Musical "13"


13

 

The Un-Common Theatre Company continues our 35th season with our Spring Production of “13”, a hilarious, high-energy musical with an unforgettable rock score from Tony Award-winning composer Jason Robert Brown.

When Evan Goldman’s parents get divorced and he's forced to move from New York City to a small town in Indiana, Evan just wants to make friends and survive the school year. Easier said than done. The star quarterback is threatening to ruin his life and his only friend, Patrice, won't talk to him. The school freak sees an opportunity for blackmail and someone is spreading the nastiest rumors.

A grown-up story about growing up, “13” featured the only all-teenage cast to hit Broadway! "13" is a story for all ages about navigating the labyrinth of high school dramas and discovering that cool is where you find it, and sometimes where you least expect it.

Auditions for students in Grades 7 through 12 will be held on Tuesday, January 20, 2015 beginning at 6:30 PM at the Robinson School in Mansfield BY APPOINTMENT ONLY.

Things to Know About Un-Common Auditions


Auditions for Un-Common shows are open to all those interested within the age ranges specified. No previous acting experience or affiliation with the theatre company is necessary.

An auditioner will audition with many actors and will be offered a role at the total discretion of the director, choreographer and music director. Parent participation, affiliation with Un-Common Theatre or past involvement will not be considered in casting decisions. Every performer comes with different strengths and qualities and casting decisions are made based on many factors including talent (singing, dancing and acting), look (age/height/coloring), how auditioners look/interact as a group, etc. This process is often difficult and the creative team (director, music director and choreographer) takes great care in casting the best mix of performers for each production.

We customarily present four productions throughout our season. Auditions and performance dates for these shows are:
  Auditions Show Performances  
  September Fall Production November  
  December Young Performers Production March
 
  December or January Spring Production April
 
  May Young Adult Production July
 
  May Improv Soup Monthly October - June
