ALADDIN Auditions, 3/2-7

Great audition opportunity for kids from the Amherst Leisure Services Community Theater. LSSE is bringing in a special one-week musical theater experience for kids ages K-12. LSSE has had this group in for the last several years, and it has been really terrific–the kids who were involved had a great time, and it was a wonderfully immersive way to have a theater experience.


Auditions will be held for the Missoula Children’s Theatre (MCT) musical production of ALADDIN Monday, March 2nd at the Amherst Middle School Cafeteria from 4:15pm to 6:15pm. All those auditioning should arrive at 4:00 and plan to stay for the full two hours. Some of those cast in the show will be asked to stay for a rehearsal immediately following the auditions.

For Aladdin it’s not easy to find a magic lamp–but it’s even harder to get a date! It’s a swirling sandstorm of famous Arabian Tales from Ali Baba to Scheherazade, and even Sinbad the Sailor, as Aladdin journeys to find a magic lamp in a Cave of (not-so-great) Wonders. Along his way Aladdin seeks answers and advice from wise Genies, a powerful Sultan, and his own Mother to find a way to meet the Princess. However, even with the lamp in hand, Aladdin will have to learn that it takes more than a wish to make a good impression. Full of memorable characters, from lost Penguins to talking Palm Trees, this is an adventure worthy of 1001 laughs.

Students from Kindergarten to 12th grade are encouraged to audition. Assistant Directors will also be cast to aid in rehearsals throughout the week, and to take on essential backstage responsibilities. There are 50-60 roles available, with parts in every age group. This is a group audition, and no advance preparation is necessary–though a smile always helps! There is a $55 Registration Fee due at the audition for all those who are cast—additional siblings $30 (waivers available).

The Missoula Children’s Theatre touring productions are complete with costumes, scenery, props and makeup. The MCT Tour Actor/Directors will conduct rehearsals throughout the week from 4:00-8:30 Monday, March 2nd – Friday, March 6th. Not everyone will need to be present at every rehearsal.

ALADDIN will be presented on Saturday, March 7th at 1:30 pm and 4:00 pm in the Amherst Middle School Auditorium. Tickets are $8 for adults and $5 for students under 18 and seniors.
