ORPHAN TRAIN AUDITIONS

The NORTH CANTON PLAYHOUSE Center for the Performing Arts is pleased to announce auditions for our SPOTLIGHT ON YOUTH (S.O.Y.) program! S.O.Y. is an educational outreach that presents dramatic plays to students in schools throughout Stark County and surrounding area schools — educating students through the ARTS!

When: Friday Oct. 6 at 6:30pm and Sat. Oct. 7 at 3:00pm
How: Auditions will be cold reading from the script. To sign up for auditions or for questions, email Delorna Toy.
Where: AUDITIONS will be held at NCP’s Main Stage @ 525 7th ST N.E. North Canton (on the Hoover High School campus)

ROLES include: (4) males ages 13-18; (5) females ages 9-16; (2-3) male adults ages 20-60; (2) female adults ages 20-60

This show will be performed at schools during school hours and performed for students in a class or many classes at a time. This is a continuing role/responsibility, as we will work throughout the entire school year as shows are booked. We need people who can be available for shows with a two-week notice. Most schools recognize this program as an educational service to the school community, and students/ cast members can be excused for the absent time of the day that shows are performed. Individuals will need to check with their schools for details.

Adults that are cast will be asked to assist the director with transportation of cast members from our Youth Theatre to the school location. Cast members are responsible for transportation to the Youth Theatre and to be picked up after performances.

Orphan Train is a play that tells the story of 9 orphans on a train that left New York City on May 28th, 1914, and traveled to U.S. Midwestern towns in search for homes for the children. This play is an excellent supplement to classroom American History courses.

We are very proud that “Spotlight on Youth” is our oldest educational outreach program, being in existence since 1989! This interactive drama has proven to be a most effective teaching tool, eliciting emotional responses that are vivid and lasting!
