Announcing Audtions for the Griffin Theatre’s Fall Production

Griffin Theatre Company announces auditions for the Midwest premiere of the Blue Grass musical THE BURNT PART BOYS, Music: Chris Miller, Lyrics:Nathan Tysen,
Book:Mariana Elder Directed by Jonathan Berry. All actors interested in being considered must have a strong singing voice and be able to hold their own part in tight harmonies. This is a non-equity production.

We are looking for two high school aged boys to play 14. (Actor age range, 14 – 17).
Pete is strong, imaginative and quiet while Dusty is a touch more socially awkward and tends to talk too much.

We are looking for one high school aged girl to play 13 (Actor age range, 14 – 19) – Frances is a scruffy tomboy who has, for the last year, lived on her own in the woods.

We are looking for two young men to play 18. (Actor age range 20 – 26) both are athletic and confident. Jake is a bit more brooding, has an intensity and a sadness to him – while Chet is more easy going and less troubled, a bit more of a smart-ass.

We are looking for 4 men to play between 18 and 40 (Actor age range 20 – 50) – these men play the miners, lost in the mining accident. One will play Pete and Jake’s father.
