Prattville’s Way Off Broadway Theatre Announces Auditions for The Secret Garden

Prattville’s Way Off Broadway Theatre announces auditions for The Secret Garden, by Marsha Norman and Lucy Simon, which will be presented through special arrangement with Samuel French. The production will be directed by Blair Dyson, who previously directed Brighton Beach Memoirs and Barefoot in the Park at WOBT.

There are roles for nine adult females, nine adult males, one 10 year old girl, one 10 year old boy, and one male 10-25 years. Actors can be younger or older, but must be able to play the approximate age listed, especially in relation to the other actors cast.
Auditions will be held Monday through Wednesday, April 16-18, from 6:30-9:00 p.m. at the Prattville Cultural Arts Center at 203 West 4th Street, Prattville, Alabama, 36067. Please plan to attend all days if possible.

Auditions are open to anyone interested. Please prepare approximately 45 seconds of a Broadway-style song that shows off your voice. No prepared acting pieces are required. We will be doing cold readings from the script. Acting resumes and pictures are appreciated, but not necessary. Please bring ALL available information as far as scheduling conflicts for May-August with you.

The Secret Garden will open on Thursday, July 26, at 7:30 p.m. with an Opening-Night Reception to follow. The production will run three consecutive weekends from July 27 through August 12, Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. and Sundays at 2:00 p.m.
