WARREN – The Glimmerglass Festival will audition youth for roles in the 2018 Festival productions on March 10 and 11 at The Glimmerglass Festival’s rehearsal hall at 4152 Highway 20.

The company is casting youth ages 8-18 to perform in three productions. The company will be casting high school students who are strong dancers with some singing experience for Bernstein’s “West Side Story,” youth ages 12 and older in singing roles for Janáček’s “The Cunning Little Vixen” and solo and chorus singing roles in “Odyssey.”

Singers should prepare one age-appropriate song from American folk, musical theater or school music repertoire (no rock or pop music). Singers should also bring a copy of sheet music for the accompanist.

Youth interested in roles in “West Side Story” must be available to attend the dance auditions on Sunday, March 11.

Email to set up an appointment. The email should include the full name of youth, voice type, if they are planning to attend the dance auditions and contact information when signing up. On the net:
