FUN HOME AUDITIONS:

CHILDREN’S ROLES

Calling all young Connecticut actors! TheaterWorks Hartford is excited to announce auditions for the children’s roles in their fall production of Jeanine Tesori & Lisa Kron’s Tony Award-winning musical, “Fun Home” based on the graphic novel by Alison Bechdel. Auditions will be held BY APPOINTMENT ONLY on Saturday, June 18th from 12:00-4:00pm in the Hoffman Studio at TheaterWorks, 233 Pearl Street, Hartford.

Local non-Equity child actors of all ethnicities and genders within 7-14 years of age, with an unchanged treble singing voice, are encouraged to audition.

All auditions are by appointment only, and may be made starting immediately. Please email auditions@twhartford.org to arrange for an audition slot.

Interested young actors should prepare a portion of an up-tempo song. Actors can also choose to sing from the score for auditions. Bring a resume, photo, and your legible sheet music – in the proper key. An accompanist will be provided.

Director Rob Ruggiero will be casting for the role of Small Alison, as well as her two brothers: John and Christian.

Understudies who can play all three roles will also be cast locally.

SMALL ALISON*: Author Alison Bechdel as a child. Precocious and opinionated, yet struggling to define herself. Age: 8-12 years. (*Local AEA members can audition as well.)

CHRISTIAN: Alison’s brother, he tries to be the leader but is overshadowed by Alison’s strong personality. Must be able to sing harmonies and move well. Age 9-12 years.

JOHN: Alison’s younger brother, he is full of energy with a quirky imagination. Must be able to sing harmonies and move well. Age 7-9 years.

Schedule: Rehearsals begin September 13th, 2022. Tech rehearsals begin September 30th and performances run October 8th through 30th.

A Note about the Show: “Fun Home” is a masterful, Tony Award-winning musical that deals with universal themes of childhood, identity, and family – but also includes adult language and subject matter. For caregivers unfamiliar with the show, scripts may be borrowed for perusal between the audition & callback stage.
