Auditions Are Scheduled!

The Colchester Community Theatre has scheduled auditions for its February 2022 musical production – “Young Frankenstein”. 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 Tuesday, November 9 from 6:30 – 8:30 pm and Sunday, November 14 from 1:30 – 3:30 pm at Congregation Ahavath Achim (Colchester Synagogue) Hall, 84 Lebanon Avenue in Colchester. No appointment is required for either date. 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 dance for the production must attend auditions for the choreographed routine only.

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 backstage@colchestercommunitytheatre.com. Driving and rehearsal location directions and additional information regarding the musical may be found on the “Directions” page.

CCT will be following all CDC guidelines during auditions and a proof of vaccination will be required as in alignment with many theater companies. All staff will be vaccinated and masks will be required.

Show dates for this production are February 18, 19, and 20, 2022. Anyone who is unable to attend the auditions on the above dates must contact us before November 8 to make other arrangements. CCT is sponsored by Colchester Parks & Recreation.
