Lemont High School is seeking child actors to fill roles in its upcoming spring musical, "Peter Pan." Auditions will be held from 7-9 p.m. on Tuesday, March 12, at Lemont High School. The school is seeking up to 30 students from grades 5-7 to fill roles as "Indians" or "lost boys."
Auditions will take place in the school's Choir Room (E300), which is accessible through the Performing Arts Center entrance. Parents of auditioning students are encouraged to park in the lot immediately outside of the Performing Arts Center or in the adjoining parking garage.
"Peter Pan" will play on the Performing Arts Center stage nightly from May 16-18, with all shows beginning at 7 p.m.
The school is seeking at least 20 boys to fill the roles of the "lost boys," and those actors will play a dual role as "Indians." Actresses who are selected will fill the role of "Indians."
The child actors will be expected to sing, dance, and act like children for their audition. Those auditioning will be asked to sing "Old McDonald's Farm." They will do two verses and can pick any two animals they wish to be on "the farm." The actors/actresses also will be expected to read lines they will be given that day as part of the audition (most likely a poem or nursery rhyme).
Parents of students interested in auditioning should click on the link below to print the audition form, which must be returned to the school's Pupil Personnel Services (PPS) Office (located inside the school's main entrance off of Porter Street) no later than Monday, March 11. No late forms or "last minute" auditioners will be accepted.
