Belfast Maskers audition for 'Little Women'

Feb 19, 2021

BELFAST — Belfast Maskers announces auditions for the musical adaptation of Louisa 
May Alcott’s “Little Women." Parts include 10 roles and a 
small ensemble with a variety of vocal ranges and genders, ages 
teens and older. Specific roles and requirements can be found at, as well as the excerpts from the score and accompaniment tracks that will be used at auditions.

Auditions will be scheduled individually, socially-distanced and contactless, to adhere to current safety guidelines. Auditions will be held at The Basil Burwell Community Theater, 17 Court St., on Sunday, March 14, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 2 to 5 p.m., and on Monday, March 15, from 6 to 8 p.m.

Please schedule your audition by emailing or by
 calling (207) 322-5557. Please indicate a time preference if you have one. Audition requests must be submitted before Saturday, March 13. 
Dance requirements are minimal and will not be part of the audition 
process, but may be a factor in any casting call backs.

Brilliantly adapted for the stage by Allan Knee (book), Jason Howland
 (music), and Mindi Dickstein (lyrics), “Little Women” enjoyed a 
successful Broadway run and a U.S. national tour in the early 2000s, earning four Emmy nominations. Alcott's timeless tale follows the adventures of Jo, Meg, Beth and Amy March in Civil War-era New England. As Jo tries to sell her fantastic stories, they leap to life on the stage and interweave with the lives of the characters. Hilarious at times, heartbreaking at others, but ultimately hopeful, "Little Women" will open on July 22 and run for two 
weekends either in the theater or outdoors, depending on the COVID-19 guidelines at the time of the performances.

Stage Director Erik Perkins and Music Director Dominic Williams will
 oversee auditions, cast the show, and begin rehearsals immediately
