Auditions for Anne & Gilbert
The producers of the hit musical Anne & Gilbert are holding auditions in Charlottetown on Monday, February 11 and Tuesday, February 12, 2008. The production team is looking for male and female performers aged 9 through adult with acting, singing and dancing ability. Those auditioning are required to prepare one musical piece, and to bring their sheet music with them, as well as a photo and CV detailing their acting/theatre experience. Performers may also be required to demonstrate their dance skill during auditions.
Anne & Gilbert tells the story of Anne Shirley and Gilbert Blythe, now young adults teaching in PEI, and later attending Redmond University in Halifax. Gilbert continues to pursue Anne, as she continues to resist him. The musical is based on Anne of the Island and Anne of Avonlea, two of L.M. Montgomery’s sequel novels to her Anne of Green Gables. It was written for the stage by Nancy White, Bob Johnston, and Jeff Hochhauser. Anne & Gilbert debuted in Victoria-by-the Sea in 2005 to sold-out houses. For the past two years it has been performed at the Harbourfont Jubilee Theatre. Last year, the original cast recording soundtrack won an East Coast Music Award.
