St. Mark's Lutheran Church Drama Ministry
St. Mark's Drama Ministry is proud to announce auditions for their 2019 summer production of Big Fish! Adults and students grades 9 and up are invited to audition.
Big Fish tells the larger-than-life tale of Edward Bloom, a man who leads an extraordinary life—according to the stories he tells his son, Will. But Will, who is getting married and expecting a child of his own, doesn’t think there’s any truth to the extravagant tales his father tells about meeting witches, kissing mermaids or joining the circus. He doesn’t even believe the story of how his father proposed to his mother, Sandra, in a field full of daffodils. When Edward’s health begins to decline, Will visits his father and tries one last time to find out the truth behind the tall tales. As Edward and Will’s relationship becomes increasingly strained, Will must decide whether to accept his father’s wild stories as fact or risk losing him completely.
Auditions will take place at St. Mark's on Sunday, May 19 from 1:00-3:00pm, and Tuesday, May 21 from 7:00-9:00pm. Please bring a piece of a song to sing (an accompanist will be at available), and come dressed for a short dance audition as well. Callbacks, if needed, will be on Wednesday, May 22.
Rehearsals for Big Fish will begin on Sunday, June 2. Rehearsals will be on Sundays from 2:00-6:00pm, and Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6:30-9:30pm. Performances are August 1-3 and 8-10 at 7:30pm, and August 4 and 11 at 2:00pm.
There is a $50 participation fee for all cast members, to be paid at the first rehearsal. Scholarships are available on an as needed basis. For more information, contact director Karen Biedermann at [email protected]. We hope to see you at auditions!
