Youth acting workshop focusing on auditions for Carson musical

Wild Horse Children’s Theater is hosting an audition workshop on Jan. 13 in the Brewery Arts Center’s Performance Hall to help children prepare for auditions for Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, Jr.

The theater recommends any actor auditioning for the musical attend the workshop — which will be from 4 to 6 p.m. for ages 5-12 and from 6 to 8 p.m. for ages 12 and up.

Participants will be coached on reading scenes, vocals and choreography. A vocal selection will be taught that can be used at the audition, but actors who are auditioning to play Belle, Beast, Gaston, Mrs. Potts, Lafou, Babette, Cogsworth, Chip or Lumiere are asked to prepare a one-minute-or-less vocal piece of one of the following songs — “Home” for Belle; “Something There” for Beast; “Gaston” for Gaston or Lafou; “Beauty and the Beast” for Mrs. Potts; “Human Again” for Babette, Cogsworth or Chip; and “Be Our Guest” for Lumiere.

Auditions — by appointment only — will be on Thursday, Jan. 15, and Saturday, Jan. 17, at the Performance Hall. Callbacks will be on Sunday, Jan. 18.

Performances are set for June 5, 6, 7, 12, 13, 14 in the Bob Boldrick Theater at the Carson City Community Center.

The workshop costs $25 per person, and space is limited. To sign up or for more information, call 775-887-0438, or email pat@wildhorsetheater.com.
