Auditions for Kid’s at HART production of “Charlotte’s Web” Jan. 27 & 28



WAYNESVILLE – Kid’s at HART youth theater program is excited to announce auditions for “Charlotte’s Web” with parts for actors from adult to 8 years old.


The play tells the story of friendship, sacrifice, family, love and teamwork with underlying themes of fairness and acceptance of all people in society.  It is based on the book by E.B. White, which is part of the curriculum in local schools.


Auditions will be Jan. 27, 6-7 p.m., and Jan. 28, 1-2 p.m., in the Fangmeyer Theater. The theater is on the HART campus at 250 Pigeon Street in Waynesville. Those interested in auditioning will be asked to read lines from the play.  Rehearsals will be Sunday evenings in February and at least two days a week in March. A detailed schedule will be provided at auditions.  Production dates are March 25 and April 1.


“We are excited to bring ‘Charlotte’s Web’ to the HART stage,” said Steven Lloyd, HART’s executive director. “This is a great growth opportunity for young actors in the Kid’s at HART program and a great opportunity for adult actors to expand their abilities to fun and challenging roles.”


This is the second show of the 2017 season for Kid’s at HART. The youth program produced “Schoolhouse Rock Live Jr.,” directed by Shelia Sumpter, in February.


Jon Ostendorff makes his directorial debut with “Charlotte’s Web.” He played “Father” in the inaugural Kid’s at HART production of “Best Christmas Pageant Ever” and also stage-managed that show. Sumpter will serve as assistant director.
