Seek Young African-American Singer

Seek Young African-American Singer

The Bay Street Theatre in Sag Harbor, New York is seeking a young African-American actress/ singer to play the role of Young Ti Moune in its upcoming production of ONCE ON THIS ISLAND. The theatre will be holding auditions by appointment on Saturday June 26 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Local actresses between the ages of 10 - 12 who can sing and move well will be asked to sing a song from the show (piano accompaniment will be provided) and to read a short scene.

Young Ti Moune is a very young child, so the theatre is seeking actresses with a small build who can appear several years younger than their age. Actresses are being asked to prepare a song that they are comfortable sing and to bring the accompanying music. They will also be asked to sing a short song from the show. Previous performance experience is helpful but not essential.

Rehearsals for the role will take place in Sag Harbor, beginning the first week of August. Performances for "Once On This Island" start August 10, and play every night but Mondays for four weeks, through September 5. There are also matinee performances on Wednesdays and Saturdays. A weekly stipend is provided.

"Once On This Island" is a Caribbean musical featuring book and lyrics by Lynn Ahrens and music by Stephen Flaherty (Ragtime, Seussical, A Man of No Importance).  This mythical, magical island fable was the recipient of eight Tony Award nominations in its original Broadway run. Marcia Milgrom Dodge (Hair!, The West End Horror) returns to Bay Street to direct and choreograph this production. The musical director is Steve Marzullo, who was the original musical director for the show on Broadway.

Audition appointments may be made by calling Wendy Leonard at Bay Street’s administrative offices, 631-725-0818.
