Kid's Theater Workshop to stage Xanadu, Jr., Announces Auditions


PITTSFIELD — Pittsfield Players Director Maye Hart has announced that this year's Kid's Theater Workshop will stage the 1980's phenomenon, Xanadu, Jr. Auditions will be held on Sunday, December 15 at 4 p.m. and again on Monday, December 16 at 4 the Scenic Theater.

Auditioners will learn a part of a song from the show and some simple dance steps at the audition, and they will be asked to read from the script.
It's 1980 and the magical and beautiful Greek muse, Kira, descends from the heavens of Mt. Olympus to Venice Beach, California, on a quest to inspire a struggling artist, Sonny, as he strives to achieve the greatest artistic creation of all time - the first roller disco. But, when Kira falls into forbidden love with the mortal Sonny, her jealous sisters take advantage of the situation and chaos abounds.

This hilarious, roller skating, musical adventure about following your dreams, rolls along with a hit score composed by pop-rock legends Jeff Lynne and John Farrar which has been adapted for the MTI Broadway Junior Collection.

With songs including, "Magic", "All Over The World", "Suddenly", "I'm Alive", "Evil Woman" and "Xanadu", to name a few. This Jr. title still has all the fun and excitement of the original production. It's hilarity on wheels for children, adults and anyone who has ever wanted to feel inspired.
The Kid's Theater Workshop is a program designed to introduce kids to performing on stage, and the show is presented to local schools in two matinee performances and three evening performances. This year, the show will run February 18 to February 22, right before winter vacation. The program is open to kids from age 8 to 18, and is for kids who want to be on stage and for kids who would prefer more technical positions, such as lights, sound, and stage management.
