The Un-Common Theatre Company's Young Adult Company
Announces Auditions for
"Carrie the musical"


Carrie

The Girl. TheProm. The Power.
You've never experienced a musical quite like this.

The Un-Common Theatre Company is thrilled to announce auditions for Carrie the musical, an electrifying pop-rock musical about a bullied teenager with telekinetic powers who takes revenge on prom night. Auditions will be held on Sunday, May 17th with performances on July 16-19, 2015, at the Orpheum Theatre, Foxboro, MA.

A misfit at school, terrorized by her holier-than-thou mother at home, 17 year old Carrie White, nonetheless, has a secret. And when a prank at the high school prom goes horribly wrong, they'll all find out just how scary a secret can be...

Based on the acclaimed horror novel by Stephen King, and featuring a book by Lawrence D. Cohen (screenwriter of the classic film), music by Academy Award winner Michael Gore (Fame, Terms of Endearment), and lyrics by Academy Award winner Dean Pitchford (Fame, Footloose) Carrie the musical spins an epic tale of torment and revenge.

So, make your appointment, come to the dance, and get to know this year's prom queen - up close and in person. It's going to be an experience you'll never forget...

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
