O'MyTheater's Spring 2019 Show
It's time to start the New Year with O'MyTheater's auditions for our spring 2019 productions of Disney's My Son Pinocchio JR. Auditions are on January 8th and 15th, rehearsals will be every Tuesday from 6 to 8pm, and shows will be the weekend of March 29th through 31st at the Oxnard Performing Arts Center, 800 Hobson Way.
Relax and enjoy this process as EVERYONE IS OFFERED A ROLE in an O'MyTheater production. You have so many options to 'try on' various roles and EVERY ROLE IS ESSENTIAL!!! If you are in 6th grade or older, you may want to consider becoming an intern and working 'behind the scenes' as part of our stage crew and tech management. 2nd Grade through High School students may audition to fill our theatrical roles on stage. It is our goal to disperse roles to students that will inspire and challenge them individually as well as serve the overall production best.
During the audition, students will be asked to:
1) Name their top 3 role preferences (and demonstrate an understanding of those characters - see FULL CAST INFO on the MTI website (see below for link) for a complete list of characters and descriptions.)
2) Sing 30 seconds of their song of choice (any song is fine and no accompaniment is required, however it is allowed).
3) Read from our script
Description of the Production:
In Disney's My Son Pinocchio JR., the classic tale of toymaker, Geppetto’s, little wooden puppet is given new life. This new musical, which retells the classic Disney story from Geppetto’s perspective, features the beloved classic songs, “When You Wish upon a Star” and “I’ve Got No Strings,” alongside a host of new songs by Oscar winner and Grammy Award winner, Stephen Schwartz.
Join the Blue Fairy, Stromboli and a lively cast of characters as Geppetto journeys beyond the toyshop to discover the meaning of family. When the Blue Fairy grants Geppetto's wish to bring his beloved puppet to life, the new father quickly learns that being a parent is full of challenges. He struggles to make his son "the perfect boy," only to lose him to a gang of Roustabouts. It is only when faced with the thought of never seeing Pinocchio again that Geppetto truly learns the joys of being a father and loving his child unconditionally.
Disney's My Son Pinocchio JR. is filled with a magical mix of unique roles for all types of performers – from blue Fairies to Roustabouts and, of course, Geppetto and Pinocchio.
