Fantasy Playhouse sets auditions for ‘The Jungle Book’

MADISON – Fantasy Playhouse Children’s Theater and Academy will conduct auditions soon for the story of Mowgli, Baloo and all their friends in the jungle.

Open-call auditions for “The Jungle Book” will be held at Fantasy Playhouse, 3312 Long Ave. in Huntsville. The minimum age for cast members is eight years old by July 22.

Audition times will be July 22 at 10 a.m.; doors will open at 9:30 a.m. On July 23, auditions will start at 2 p.m.; doors will open at 1:30 p.m.

“Are you ready to join Mowgli and Baloo in an all-new, reimagined version of this classic tale? Help bring the story of Mowgli, Baloo and all their friends to life this fall. Life-sized puppets, larger-than-life puppets or both will portray all non-human characters,” according to the website, fantasyplayhouse.org.

The story is set in the mysterious jungle, which is home for Mowgli, a curious young boy raised by wolves. A fearsome tiger’s mighty roar forces Mowgli to leave the only home he has ever known.

Mowgli must rely on the guidance of his new friends: a pragmatic panther and a big brother bear. Mowgli learns valuable life lessons through self-discovery, brave adventures and the jungle’s rules.

To expedite auditions, auditionees should pre-register online at fantasyplayhouse.org/auditions.

Fantasy Playhouse Children’s Theater and Academy is committed to casting practices that reflect the diverse community. Performers of all races, abilities and identities within the specified age range are encouraged to audition.

Robyn Mitchell is serving as director.

Audition slots will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis. Auditionees will read from the script, so prepared readings aren’t required.

Callbacks will be by invitation only on July 23 at 6 p.m. Fantasy Playhouse’s production team will contact performers by phone with an official invitation.

Show times will be Oct. 19, 20 and 27 at 7 p.m.; and Oct. 21, 22, 28 and 29 at 1 and 6 p.m.

A sensory-friendly matinee will be performed on Oct. 28 at 10 a.m. Student matinees on Oct. 26 will be presented at 9 a.m. and 2 p.m.
