TYA slates auditions for musical

Theater For Young Audiences announces auditions by appointment for the musical “Miss Nelson Is Missing!”

Stage director Deb Sabol-Williams, music director Paul Sucherman, and choreographer Katie Hammer seek a cast of 12 youngsters and four adults in this wacky musical rendition based on the popular books by Allard and Marshall.

Youngsters in grades 4-9 are needed for the singing and dancing bratty students of the Horace B. Smedley Elementary school. Their sweet teacher Miss Nelson and her alter ego Miss Viola Swamp will be played by an adult female age 25 to 50 years old. Three adult males are needed to play Pop, the Janitor, Miss Nelson’s observant confidant; Principal Blandsworth, a nerd who loves his pencil collection; and the inept Detective McSmogg who takes the students on a wild goose chase in search of their beloved Miss Nelson.

This version by Joan Cushing features the following songs: Horace B. Smedley Alma Mater, Worst Kids of All, Carried Away!, The Swamp Song, McSmogg Song, Miss Nelson Is Missing. and The Secret Song.

Auditions will be held at 5 and 6 p.m. Monday, Oct. 19 and Tuesday, Oct. 20 at TYA’s Theater Factory, 1305 St. Clair Ave., Sheboygan. Adults should prepare a one minute of an up-tempo song. Youngsters will sing a familiar tune. All will be asked to read from the script and execute a simple dance sequence during the 45-minute session.

Callbacks by invitation will be held Wednesday, Oct. 21 beginning at 6 p.m. All youngsters must reside or attend school in Sheboygan County or the Kiel school district. Parents are required to volunteer four to six hours per week if their child is cast.

Scripts are available for in-house review only at Mead and Plymouth libraries. Rehearsals will begin Nov. 9 at TYA’s Theater Factory. A nominal participation fee will be charged for all cast members.

Performances will be held for schools and families Jan. 21-24 at the UWSheboygan Fine Arts Theatre.
