Northfield Arts Guild Theater

YOUNG ACTORS WANTED - The Northfield Arts Guild Theater is hosting auditions for the  young adult show I Was A Rat! adapted by Barbara Field from the children’s book by Philip Pullman.  A delightful family-friendly tale, I Was A Rat! tells the story of Little Roger, a happy little rat chosen to be one of the coachmen for Cinderella’s carriage.  Mistakenly left behind by the coach, Roger is transformed into a boy and must look for his place in the strange human world. 

Auditions are scheduled for Sunday and Monday, February 17-18, 2013, from 7-9pm. Adults auditioning will be asked to read a cutting from the script.  Young people auditioning should come prepared to tell 1-2 minutes of a favorite fairy tale and display a wide-range of emotions.   All auditions will take place at the Northfield Arts Guild Theater, 411 W 3rd Street, Northfield.  Please call the Arts Guild to schedule a short individual audition time.

 I Was A Rat! is being directed by Mickey Morstad.  The show features roles for 7 men and 4 women, which includes two featured young adult roles, a boy ages 10-12 and a teen boy or girl.  A small youth ensemble will also be cast to play a variety of roles.

Weekend performances are scheduled for April 19-28, 2013.  Check the Arts Guild website for more information:
