- About KCT
Knoxville Children’s Theatre (KCT) will hold auditions on Monday, February 27th for our upcoming production of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. There are great parts for boys and girls of all ages and roles for actors making their KCT debut. Actors should be at least eight years old to audition. This show will be directed by directing intern, Ava Bradshaw.
Artistic Staff at Auditions: Steve Sherman, Artistic Director; Ava Bradshaw, Director.
The audition will take place from 4:30 to 8:00 PM at KCT, 109 E. Churchwell Avenue.
SYNOPSIS: This dramatization of C.S. Lewis’ classic work faithfully recreates the magic and mystery of Aslan, the great lion, his struggle with the White Witch, and the adventures of four children who inadvertently wander from an old wardrobe into the exciting, never-to-be-forgotten Narnia. The intense action features chases, duels and escapes as the witch is determined to keep Narnia in her possession and to end the reign of Aslan. This story of love, faith, courage and giving, with its triumph of good over evil, is a true celebration of life.
You will need to prepare a one-minute monologue in the style of the show, and you may be asked to read a side from the play at the audition.
