Auditions for 'The Adventures of Tom Sawyer' - all welcome!

Tanya Piejus from Khandallah Arts Theatre

KAT is holding open auditions for their next major production, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer.

The play:

"Mark Twain's immortal classic about growing up in a small town on the banks of the Mississippi is a joyous leap into the great river of time and memory. Conjuring all the mystery and magic of childhood, this famous coming-of-age story is full of twists and turns and adventures the whole family will treasure." (Playmarket website).

Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn, lads whose antics often get them into trouble, stumble across a murder in a graveyard at night. This triggers a series of events which finds Tom and Huck running for their lives, falling in love and finding treasure.

This is a fast-paced play, calling for both individual and ensemble performance, with plenty of scope for strong characterisations.

The roles:

There are roles, both speaking and ensemble, for ages 13 to seniors.

There are 8 teenage and 12 adult named characters, plus at least one narrator (in previous productions this role has been split between several players).

Auditions 1.30pm, Sunday April 18 at Cochran Hall, 110 Cashmere Avenue, Khandallah.

If you can't come then, contact Lynn on 027 600 5366 to discuss other options.

Performances July 22, 23, 24, 25 and 29, 30, 31.

(8 performances, including 2 matinees)
