"You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown"
Sat, May 25, 2013
This season, the Florida Repertory Theatre's Education Department’s program will be producing “Legally Blonde, The Musical” and “You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown.” The first to go up will be “Legally Blonde” with performances on May 17 and 18 featuring students ages 13-21, followed by “You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown” performing May 24 and 25 with students up to age 15. Auditions for both shows will be Feb. 2 and 3 at Florida Repertory Theatre in downtown Fort Myers.
The Conservatory program began in 2011 with productions of “Sleeping Beauty” and “13, The Musical,” featuring 40 of Southwest Florida's most talented students, and continued last year with Willy Wonka and Pippin.
Students rehearse one to two days per week from February thru May to accommodate busy schedules.
In addition to performing, interested students have also been involved as stage managers, board operators and running crew.
Many of the Conservatory students have worked professionally throughout Southwest Florida. Since its beginning, 74 children and young adults have been a part of this program, and 21 of them have obtained jobs in professional theatre (many in several different shows) on stages including Florida Repertory Theatre, Barbara B. Mann, the Herb Strauss on Sanibel Island and the Broadway Palm Dinner Theatre. This season, several conservatory students can be seen in Broadway Palm's productions of Miracle on 34th Street and The Sound of Music as well as the Herb Strauss' production of Spamalot.
To audition, students must prepare a 2-minute cut of a song, as well as a monologue, and bring a current headshot and resume. Auditions are scheduled in 5 minute time slots and walk-ups will be seen as time allows. Those auditioning for You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown must be between 5 and 15 years old, and performers auditioning for Legally Blonde must be between 13 and 21 years old. To schedule your audition, call Education Assistant, Taylor Hale at 239-332-4665 ext. 41. Visit www.FloridaRepEducation.org for more information.
