Wed Jan 19, 2022

Brazosport College Theatre is seeking actors for its upcoming production of “Spring Awakening.”

Auditions will be held at 6 p.m. on January 27 and 28, with possible callbacks on Jan. 29, at The Seidule Theatre on the Brazosport College campus. Roles aged teens through 60s are available.

A landmark musical, “Spring Awakening” is an electrifying fusion of morality, sexuality and rock and roll that has captivated audiences since its off-Broadway and Broadway debuts in 2006. It’s an angsty rock musical adaptation of the 1890 German expressionist play about the trials and tribulations of growing up.

The winner of eight Tony Awards, including Best Musical, and told by Duncan Sheik and Steven Sater, “Spring Awakening” has been called “the most gorgeous Broadway score this decade” by “Entertainment Weekly.”

Auditions are open to students and non-students. All participants under the age of 18 will require parent/guardian permission.

“Spring Awakening” contains scenes of intimacy and violence, and all safety and professional rules of IDC and SAFD will be followed during rehearsals and performances. There will not be nudity in this production and there will be no intimacy or violence at the auditions.

Rehearsals will be from 6 to 9 p.m. on Sunday through Thursday, Feb. 28 through April 20. Tech rehearsals could run later. The tech rehearsal on April 16 will start at 10 a.m. and might run until 10 p.m. No rehearsal will be scheduled on Easter Sunday.

Performances are scheduled for 8 p.m. on April 21-23 and 2 p.m. on April 24 at the Seidule Theatre on the Brazosport College campus.

Those auditioning should learn a brief song in the style of the show and may be asked to read from a script. For more details about the auditions, visit brazosport.edu/theatre/auditions/. An audition form can be found at forms.office.com/r/cByLNQ9vhX/.
