Young Frankenstein Auditions

CTCallboard Logo

The Colchester Community Theatre has scheduled additional auditions for its February 2023 musical production – Young Frankenstein. The majority of the cast was selected in 2021 before CCT had to cancel the production planned for 2022. At this time, CCT is seeking to fill the role of Igor and Inspector Kemp as well as needing additional ensemble – men and women. From the creators of the record-breaking Broadway sensation, The Producers, comes this monster new musical comedy. The comedy genius, Mel Brooks, adapts his legendarily funny film into a brilliant stage creation. With such memorable tunes as “The Transylvania Mania,” “He Vas My Boyfriend” and “Puttin’ on the Ritz,” Young Frankenstein is scientifically proven, monstrously good entertainment.

Auditions will be held Sunday, November 6 at 2:00 pm and Wednesday, November 9 at 6:30 pm at Congregation Ahavath Achim (Colchester Synagogue) Hall, 84 Lebanon Avenue in Colchester. Appointments for auditions are required and can be made ONLINE at Everyone MUST bring sheet music in the appropriate key and be prepared to sing. Please prepare 12-16 measures of a song that showcases your voice. No prerecorded music or a cappella singing will be permitted. An accompanist will be provided. Everyone will be asked to learn a short choreographed routine so please bring appropriate shoe wear. Anyone interested in being a dancer or tap dancer only for the production must attend auditions just for the choreographed routine.

Roles are available for adults and teens (Grade 9 and above). Any questions, contact Wallis Johnson (860) 267-1023 or Laura Brown (860) 305-8605, email Driving and rehearsal location directions and additional information regarding the musical may be found on the “Directions” page.
