Hendricks Civic Theatre is proud to present upcoming auditions for NARNIA (musical)
WHO: All roles are open for audition for performers ages 6-20 years old
WHEN: Friday, December 7 or Saturday, December 8 to audition. If necessary, callbacks will be held on Monday evening
WHERE: Avon Middle School SOUTH, 7199 E US Hwy 36, Avon, IN 46123
HOW: Scheduling an audition will require you to do two things:
Step 1 – Sign up for a specific 15 minute audition time either Friday night (5:30-9:00) or Saturday (9:30-4:00)
Step 2 – Fill out the new ONLINE AUDITION FORM which allows us to have your information electronically and ahead of time.
You must fill this out at least 24 hours ahead of your audition (but the sooner the better!) and the production team will have these already printed at the audition site. If you sign up less than 24 hours ahead of the audition, you’ll be asked to fill out a paper copy at the audition site.
PREPARATION: Pick a musical theater song NOT from this show, and learn a verse and a chorus. NO POP SONGS. Bring sheet music for your song (no a cappella will be allowed) and mark the section you’ll be singing for the accompanist. Tip: you can get almost anything you need from musicnotes.com and even pick the key you want to sing in.
You will also be asked to read an acting side that will be provided when you check in for your audition.

Rehearsals & Performances
The show will be presented at Avon Middle School South on March 1 – 3 and 8 – 10, 2019
Rehearsals will begin with a Meet-and-Greet and Parent Meeting in early January, and fully kick-off for the entire cast shortly after.
Rehearsals will be held Monday through Thursday nights. Tuesdays will be at Avon Middle School South and the other nights will be at Cornerstone Christian Church in Brownsburg. Mondays & Thursdays will be full cast/ensemble rehearsals and Wednesday will focus on work in smaller groups. Please note, there may be exceptions to this and a full rehearsal schedule will be given after casting.
Actors should assume that the larger their part or featured role, the more rehearsals they will be asked to attend.
We will move all rehearsals to Avon Middle School South approximately 2-3 weeks before opening, and all rehearsals (vocal and blocking) from that point forward will be held there. Tech Week is February 24 – March 1, so be aware that rehearsals will run longer during that week with later end times. Long Sunday rehearsal is TBD, but will fall on February 24.

The first and most famous story of The Chronicles of Narnia has become a musical presentation of this unique, enchanted world filled with creatures and spirits of myth and fable, both good and evil, evil and transcendent. The principal inhabitants, however, are the intelligent talking animals ruled by the majestic King Aslan, the great lion of Narnia. Though Aslan is often absent from the land (so that his very existence is doubted by some), he returns when the need for him is greatest. And entering Narnia at a moment of high adventure are some children—plucked from our world in unexpected ways to help Narnia and to learn from their Narnia odyssey lessons of courage, unselfishness and wisdom that will help them grow. Narnia wants to sing, and from the excitement of the opening song, “Aslan’s on the Move,” to the joy of “Narnia (You Can’t Imagine),” your spirits will soar with all those in Narnia.
