LCT Announces Auditions for Fall Musical, 'The Secret Garden'

La Crosse, WI – 04/22/19 – La Crosse Community Theatre will hold auditions for the musical, The Secret Garden, on May 13 and 14, 2019, at 7:00 p.m. at Weber Center for the Performing Arts, 428 Front Street South, La Crosse, WI.

Orphaned in India, Mary Lennox returns to Yorkshire to live with her embittered, reclusive uncle, Archibald, and his invalid son, Colin. The estate’s many wonders include a magic garden, which beckons the children with haunting melodies and dreamers. These spirits from Mary’s past guide her through her new life and dramatize the secret garden’s compelling tale of forgiveness and renewal.

The Secret Garden will be directed by guest artist, Liz Golson. Liz received her BFA in Music Theatre from The Hartt School in 2007 and enjoyed acting professionally all over the country for more than a decade. After a strange and wonderful acting career, Liz began to direct and choreograph, most recently directing Fools and choreographing Cabaret at LCT.

Auditions are open for ages 8 and up. There are roles available for men, women, one boy, and one girl. A complete breakdown of roles available can be found online at www.lacrossecommunitytheatre.org/volunteer/audition. No need to prepare anything. Auditionees will be taught a song that evening for their audition. First-time auditionees are welcome—no experience necessary. Signing up for auditions is preferred, but walk-ins are welcome.

Performances are Thursdays through Sundays, September 6-22, 2019. The cast list will be announced during the morning show of WXOW on Friday, May 17, 2019, as well as online and on the stage door. Rehearsals are tentatively scheduled Mondays through Fridays beginning July 22, 2019. For more information, or to sign up for an audition, call 608-784-9292.
