Description

 Little Radical Theatrics (Fatima Viegas, Executive Producer), coming off of our blockbuster production of "Shrek the Musical" is thrilled to announce auditions for its first all kids/teens musical, a 40th Anniversary Production of "Runaways" by Elizabeth Swados. Nominated for five 1978 Tony Awards (Best Musical, Best Original Score, Best Book being among them), "Runaways" has since become something of a cult favorite, with songs that blend different musical styles like rock, pop, hip-hop, jazz, gospel, and spoken-word with a narrative that is uncompromising in its grit, truth, joy, and exuberance about growing up in troubling times and being all the stronger for it. 

Directed by Michael Mirra, Musical Direction by Sam Sultan, Choreographed by Erin Pryor 

   With plans to acquire a cast of 25 kids and teens (ages 11-18) of all ethnicities, body types, gender identification, and ability levels, this production promises a fast and furious, poignant and intense 90 minutes of undiluted tween and teen spirit. With 'Runaways'' unique ensemble based casting, unlike many other youth and school musicals, each young person cast will have a monologue, solo or featured solo in a group number."

  Auditions will be held February 14th and 15th from 5:30 - 8:30 PM at The Grinton Will Library 1500 Central Park Ave Yonkers, NY. Making an audition appointment is strongly suggested! Though walk-ins will be accepted, they may have to wait until the end of the night. For an audition appointment pleas e-mail  littleradicaltheatrics@gmail.com with a recent picture/resume and indicate your preferred audition day and time. Prepare a song, something that shows vocal ability and that you are confident singing, preferably in the style of the show (60s/70s: either from a musical from that period such as "The Wiz," "Chorus Line," "Jesus Christ Superstar," "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat," or a pop/rock song from that time period) and bring sheet music in the correct key along with a headshot (or recent picture) and resume if you have them.

 Rehearsals will begin the first week of March and take place approximately three times per week (two weekday late afternoons/early evenings and one weekend day afternoon). Exact schedule will be determined by the role and the performers' conflicts. Company will be able to work around most conflicts and build a schedule around the performers' availability. Performances weekend of April 13 at the Grinton Will Library, 1500 Central Park Ave., Yonkers, NY.

 : Seeking a diverse cast of young people of all ethnicities, body types, gender identifications, and ability levels, as well as performers who are bilingual (including ASL). Seeing singers, actors, dancers, and rappers. Every performer cast will be given at least either a monologue, a song, a spoken word piece, a featured solo in the group numbers or a featured dance spotlight, whatever highlights them and suits their strength as a performer best, is appropriate to their age and skill level. All twenty-five performers will also be in every group ensemble number. There truly is a place for every kind of talented young performer in this musical.
