Auditions! Hawaii Theatre Center announces auditions for Roald Dahl’s The Twits, adapted by David Wood
Can you stand on your head? No, really…!
Hawaii Theatre Center will audition for paid roles in the March 2013 production of THE TWITS, based on the short story by Roald Dahl, superbly adapted by David Wood.
Beneath the madcap surface of this deliciously subversive tale for young audiences lurk lessons about bullying and the importance of treating living things with respect.
Directed by Stephanie Conching, auditions take place on Friday, Nov. 30 starting at 6:30 p.m. and Saturday, Dec. 1, starting at 1 p.m. with callbacks on Sunday, Dec. 2. Auditions will consist of reading from the script, improvisation and movement.
- Bring a photograph and resume.
- Come in clothes you can move in; this delightful high-energy romp mixes singing, dancing, slapstick and audience participation.
- Familiarity with Dahl’s story is helpful, but not necessary.
- For all roles, tumbling, jumping rope, the ability to play musical instruments, clowning and circus skills are welcome!
Audition location: Hawaii Theatre’s new Annex Studio, 1121 Nuuanu Avenue, above Indigo Restaurant. Go up the stairs and turn right. Studio is last door on the right.
Rehearsal period will be from January – March 5, 2013
Hawaii Theatre performance dates: Student matinees the mornings of March 6, 7 and 8; two public performances, March 9 and 10
Narrator—larger-than-life character who runs the world of the play, something of a side-show barker who interacts with the audience to keep things spinning. A large voice and compelling presence.
Mr. & Mrs. Twit—the grotesquely comic couple who wants to run a circus act. They are incessantly playing tricks on each other. Ability to play broad physical comedy a big plus
Mr. & Mrs. Muggle-Wump—the parents of the monkey family that Mr. Twit kidnaps from Darkest Africa to train for the circus act he hopes will make him rich. Basic tumbling a big plus.
The Roly-Poly Bird—an elegant, magical and exotic bird who helps the Muggle-Wumps revolt
