CASTING

IMG_1677_edited.jpg

SSTI is casting local children to be a part of our legendary summer productions. For our seventeeth anniversary season, SSTI's production of Gypsy will require children in leading roles. This is an opportunity for students to work on a professional level, with extraordinary high school students from across the country and New York designers and directors.

There is NO TUITION for this opportunity.

Casting Breakdown:

DAINTY JUNE – Vocal range C4 to E5 (Female age about 10) 
A Shirley Temple-like, up-and-coming vaudeville star. Her on-stage demeanor is sugary, sweet, cute and precocious. Strong singer and must have good dancing skills. The ability to do splits, high kicks, tap/jazz dance, baton twirling is a big plus, but not required. 

YOUNG LOUISE – Vocal range C4 to E5 (Female age about 12) 
Rose’s shy older daughter and has always played second fiddle to her baby sister. She is awkward, a little sad and subdued; she doesn’t have the confidence of her sister. Strong acting skills needed. The character always dances slightly out of step, but the actor playing this part must be able to dance. 

Facts:

- Both roles will be double cast and they will alternate weekends, playing another smaller role when not featured. 

- While all children must be available for all rehearsals on a full-time, professional schedule July 9-August 4, we will attempt to only call the children when needed and necessary.

- Production directed by Broadway veteran and Elon University Musical Theatre faculty, Jacob Brent.
