Theater for Young Audiences will hold auditions by appointment Tuesday, Aug., 31, from 6 to 8 p.m. for its Rising Stars Youth Theater Troupe production of “Robin Hood.” Auditions will be held at the Sheboygan Masonic Mansion, 411 St. Clair Ave.
The Rising Stars Youth Theater Troupe is a program for youth who design and stage plays.
In this swash-buckling medieval adventure, Robin Hood wins an archery contest, battles with the Sheriff, foils the plans of Lady Merle and saves Maid Marian from marriage to the evil Prince John.
Stage director Tanner Moenning and assistant Kade Bryand seek a cast of youth entering grades five through nine. Seven roles are available for boys. They include Robin Hood, Friar Tuck, Little John, Will Scarlet, Sheriff of Nottingham, Kaspar the Soldier and a Soldier who also plays King Richard.
Girls will portray Lady Merle, Maid Marian, Mother Meg, Beth, Annabelle, Salome, Old Widow and Sheriff’s Wife.
Early evening rehearsals will be held Sept. 6 to Oct. 7, Mondays through Thursdays.
Performances will be presented at 7 p.m., Friday and Saturday, Oct. 8 and 9; and 2 p.m., Sunday, Oct. 10. A medieval dinner at 6 p.m. will precede the evening performances.
All rehearsals and performances will be held at the Sheboygan Masonic Mansion.
A mandatory general meeting for the cast and their parents will be held Tuesday, Sept. 7, beginning at 6:30 p.m. The majority of the work is done by the youth troupe; however, parents provide assistance as needed. Parents are required to assist with the medieval dinner, cast meals, concessions, merchandise sales and strike.
All cast members must live in or attend school in Sheboygan County or the Kiel School District. The participation fee for each cast member is $15.
