101 Dalmatians Auditions Ages 4-9 (Sept 25 – 11:30am)

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.

Spotlight is a tuition-based performing arts school. Standard tuition is $85 per month. Financial aid and work-study options are available and no student will be turned away.

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
11:30am – 12:30 pm Blue Cast
12:30pm – 1:30 pm Purple Cast

Descendants: The Musical (Oct 1-3)

Performed by Spotlight Acting School Students age 14-18

Based on the popular Disney Channel Original Movies, Disney’s Descendants: The Musical is a brand-new musical comedy featuring beloved characters and hit songs from the films! It is present-day, and in the kingdom of Auradon, all of Disney’s beloved heroes and royalty are living happily ever after, safe from the terrifying villains and troublesome sidekicks they have banished to the magic-free Isle of the Lost. That is until Ben, the benevolent teenage son of Belle and King Adam (The Beast), offers a chance of redemption for the troublemaking offspring of the evilest villains. Mal, Evie, Jay, and Carlos – the children of Maleficent, the Evil Queen, Cruella De Vil, and Jafar – are welcomed to Auradon Prep to attend school with the children of their parents’ sworn enemies. Now entering a completely foreign world and way of life, the four Villain Kids have a difficult choice to make: should they follow in their parents’ wicked footsteps or learn to be good?

Performances:
Oct. 1, 2, 3
