October 19th, 2017

Players Club of Swarthmore will be holding auditions Tuesday, December 12, 2017 at 7:00pm for the Children’s Theater production of Really Rosie.

We invite you to audition for this lovable children’s production, with book and lyrics by famed author Maurice Sendak and music by legendary musician Carole King.
 
This musical follows a typical summer day in the life of several neighborhood friends. Rosie, the self-proclaimed sassiest kid on her block of Brooklyn’s Avenue P, pretends she is making a movie based on her life. All her friends want to be in the movie, and they take turns showing off their talents by auditioning for her.
 
Please prepare up to one minute of a song in the style of children’s musical theater (but NOT a song from the show) and plan to sing it acapella. You may also be taught and asked to sing a song from the show and/or asked to read from the script.
