101 Dalmatians Auditions Ages 4-9 (Nov 6 – 11:30am)

Please note this audition was moved until after Fall Break/Halloween. The original date was Sept 25. 

Spotlight Acting School

You do not have to be currently enrolled in Spotlight Acting School to audition.

Students Age 4-9

All Students age 4-9 will be cast.

Students will be expected to sing a song (Happy Birthday is fine) and follow instructions (Act like an animal, Show us a sad face, Etc.) Optional monologues will be accepted after the regular audition process. Based on the classic animated film, Disney’s 101 Dalmatians KIDS is a fur-raising adventure featuring Cruella De Vil, Disney’s most outrageous villain, and 101 of the most adorable heroes to set their paws onstage. With a high-spirited score and lovable characters, this stage adaptation is certain to charm and delight all audiences.

Pet owners, Roger and Anita, live happily in London with their Dalmatians, Pongo, and Perdita, stalwart dogs devoted to raising their puppies. Everything is quiet until Anita’s former classmate, the monstrous Cruella De Vil, plots to steal the puppies for her new fur coat. The Dalmatians rally all the dogs of London for a daring rescue of the puppies from Cruella and her bumbling henchmen.

Ages waivers will be granted with permission. Students not in the designated age range (4-9) are not guaranteed roles.

Standard tuition to Spotlight Acting School is $85 per month before any discounts or financial aid.  For more information call 859-756-0011 or email [email protected]  

We anticipate having two casts. We will call them Blue cast and Purple cast. The only difference is the rehearsal and performance times/dates. All rehearsals prior to dress week will be on Saturdays.

Rehearsals – Saturdays
9:00 am – 10:00 am Blue Cast
11:00 am – 12:00 pm Purple Cast

Both performance weeks should be just before any Spring Breaks, but please double-check to avoid travel conflicts with performances. Madison County School’s Spring Break is April 2-10.

March 18-20 Blue Cast
March  25-27 Purple Cast

Moana Jr. Auditions – Ages 9-14 (Dec. 4 – 10:30am)

All Students age 9-14 will be cast.

Age waivers to younger students will be granted.  Students in the designated age range will be cast first. Please ask for age waivers early and know that you may not be cast in the show if all the roles are filled by the designated age range students. 

Students will be expected to sing a song and repeat a dance routine. 

Monologues are not required but will be accepted and considered in the casting process.  

This thrilling and heartwarming coming-of-age story follows the strong-willed Moana as she sets sail across the Pacific to save her village and discover the truth about her heritage. Moana and the legendary demigod Maui embark on an epic journey of self-discovery and camaraderie as both learn to harness the power that lies within. With empowering messages of bravery and selflessness, Moana JR. is sure to bring out the hero within each of us.

Rehearsals – Saturdays, 8:30 am – 10:00 am (Blue) and 10:00 am – 11:30 am (Purple)

Please check your school’s Spring Break dates for travel conflicts before auditions. Madison County School’s Spring Break does not affect either performance.  Also, note that the 1st Cast (Blue) performs Easter Sunday and the 2nd Cast (Purple) starts dress rehearsals. Arrangements may be made for the dress rehearsal, but you cannot miss a performance.  Many families like Easter performances for something the family can do together.

Performances April 15-18 (1st Cast) & 22-24 (2nd Cast)
