SCC Young People’s Theatre to hold open auditions for ‘Sleepy Hollow’ in August

Auditions are open for all students ages 8-18 and will be held at 8:30 a.m. in the theater of the Donald D. Shook Fine Arts Building on the SCC campus in Cottleville. A parent or guardian must be present with their child during the audition process.

All auditions will consist of a song that will be taught, a short dance combination and brief readings from the script. Students should wear comfortable clothes and shoes (no flip-flops). Any student cast must either have completed the Introductory Theater Workshop I class or enroll in that class in addition to being in the production.

“Sleepy Hollow: A Musical Tale” will be performed in the theater of the Fine Arts Building at 7 p.m. Friday-Saturday, Oct. 17-18, and 2 p.m. Saturday-Sunday, Oct. 18-19. 

The musical is set on Halloween night, when modern-day kids decide to trick or treat at the old Crane House and are magically transported right into the middle of the classic tale of Ichabod Crane, Brom Bones, Katie Van Tassel and the Headless Horseman. Spooky and hilarious moments ensue as the kids cope with life in 1790 and how to find their way back home.
