Cottage Theatre announces auditions for The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe
Cottage Grove, OR — Cottage Theatre will hold auditions for The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe on Sunday, October 4 and Monday, October 5 at 6:30 pm. This play, dramatized by Joseph Robinette from the story by C.S. Lewis, will be the final offering in Cottage Theatre's 2015 season. Auditions will be held at the theatre, located at 700 Village Drive in Cottage Grove.
This magical dramatization of the C.S. Lewis classic faithfully recreates the adventures of four children who wander, quite by accident, from an old wardrobe into the exciting and unusual land of Narnia. Filled with action, poignancy, and intrigue, the adventure unfolds as the evil White Witch tries to keep Narnia in an endless icy winter and to end the reign of Aslan, the Lion. Amidst battles and struggles, Edmund, Peter, Susan, and Lucy discover the truth of the “prophesy” that only they can fulfill. This story of love, faith, courage, and redemption, with its triumph of good over evil, is a true celebration of life.
A large cast of approximately 30 actors is needed for this production directed by Kory Weimer. There are two roles for children ages 9 to 12; the remaining roles are for teens and adults ages 14 to 70. The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe will run for 11 performances from December 4 - 20, 2015.
These auditions are open to any interested actors and no appointment is necessary. The auditions will consist of readings from the script as well as some weapons improvisation which will be explained at auditions.
