Auditions coming soon for Children’s Castle’s ‘Tarzan’

Children’s Castle Theater will hold auditions Nov. 18 and 19 for its Jan. 2014 musical production of Disney’s “Tarzan.” Auditions are open to nearly every age and skill level with parts for beginning and advanced actors ages 5 to adult.

The stage production of “Tarzan” is based on the 1999 film of the same name and features many songs from the animated Disney film, including “Two Worlds,” “Son of Man” and “Trashin’ the Camp.” Approximately 70-100 actors will be cast in the show.

Although most actors cast can expect to rehearse three or more days a week, part-time roles that rehearse one or two days a week will also be available for younger actors who seek a less strenuous theater experience.

CCT is an intergenerational community theater that has been serving the Dakota County area for more than 20 years. With a mission of education, experience and entertainment, CCT strives to produce fun and entertaining shows that the whole family can participate in and enjoy.

Auditions will take place at 6 p.m. Monday, Nov. 18 and Tuesday, Nov. 19 at the Lakeville Area Arts center in downtown Lakeville.  Visit or e-mail at childrenscastletheater@gmail. com for more information.
