Announcing auditions: "Monster in the Closet"

Director Laurie Russell has announced audition information for Angela D. Stewart's "Monster in the Closet," the fourth and final show in the 2014-2015 Civic Youth Theatre season at Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette.

Emily has a big problem. Not only is she sent to bed just as she reaches the highest level of her new video game, but there’s a monster in her closet! It’s not just her imagination. Her friend Stephanie saw it, too. Suffering the teasing of her brother and his friends, Emily and Stephanie recruit some of their own friends to help capture the monster. What they don’t know is that Murray, the closet monster, doesn’t mean any harm — he only wants to play Emily’s new video game. He’s too scared of kids to even think about trying to frighten them. Murray’s boss, the Dream King, has heard about his goofing off on the job, and now Murray is on probation. Murray’s supervisor, fellow monster Wanda, is not happy with him either.

Auditions will be 6:30-8:30 p.m. on Wednesday, February 18 and Thursday, February 19 at the Civic Theatre office, 313 N. 5th Street in downtown Lafayette.

Those auditioning are asked to sign up for a 5-minute audition spot. Please make an appointment by calling Civic Theatre at 765-423-7529. Please be prepared to stay longer than the five-minute spot.

Those auditioning will be asked to read from the script. Copies of the script are available to be checked out at the Civic Theatre office.
