THE YOUNGSTOWN PLAYHOUSE ANNOUCNES AUDITIONS FOR ROMEO + JULIET PRESENTED BY THE YOUTH VALLEY PLAYERS
Youngstown, OH (December 12, 2022): The Youngstown Playhouse has announced auditions for the Youth Valley Players production of Romeo + Juliet. Open auditions will be held on January 4th and 5th from 4-6 pm in the Front Room at The Youngstown Playhouse.
The Youth Valley Players Showcase presents Romeo & Juliet with a twist! Join other local students as they write and perform their short vignettes influenced by Shakespeare’s classic, Romeo & Juliet. These self-written works will display characters, themes, sets, and props based on the classic, tragic love story.
Seeking: actors ages 12 – 18 years old. “For never was a story of more woe than this of Juliet and her Romeo.” Audition for the Youth Valley Players to showcase your artistic ability from writing to acting! Students will be placed in groups and given writing prompts inspired by William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet to create their own 10 minute short play. Your student will learn the art of scriptwriting, directing, and acting with a big finish by showcasing their work!
The creative team is led under the direction of Tyler Moliterno and Emelia Sherin. Rehearsals will begin in January 2023. The performance will take place Saturday, January 28 at 7:30pm.
