Auditions: Beauty & The Beast

Submitted by Chris Solimene.

Artful Living is proud to announce auditions for our 2018 Summer Musical, BEAUTY AND THE BEAST!

Be swept into the romantic fairy tale of the Beast who could only be saved by love in this lavish musical! Can a Beast learn to love and be loved? A spectacular show…musical theater at its best!

With unforgettable songs such as “Be Our Guest” and “Beauty and the Beast,” this fairy tale sensation is pure joy for the entire family.

Great Roles for BOTH adults and children! Show dates are July 27-29 with performances held at HK Middle School. We rehearse approximately three times a week with little commitment needed from children until the school year ends in June. We do ask you to be involved with a nominal fee for the bits and pieces for your costume and to sell a few ads for our program. Make memories and friendships of a lifetime! Details at

Some special notes about auditions:

  • There is no need to schedule an appointment. The process should move quickly.
  • If multiple members of the same family who are different ages would like to audition, you may certainly come together. There is no need to come multiple times based on ages. Just let us know when you sign in.
  • Adults:  Please prepare 16 measures, ballad or up-tempo from a Broadway musical. Please bring marked sheet music. An accompanist will be provided.
  • Children: Be prepared to sing in small groups. There is no need to bring prepared songs. Children will be taught a section from “Be Our Guest” at the audition. If interested in auditioning for Chip, a song should be prepared. Chip’s role is written for an unchanged voice.
  • If you would like to be involved in any aspect of production preparation and feel you have a desire to volunteer some time to help with costumes, audition week or any other aspects of the production, please Producer/Director, Chris Solimene at [email protected]
