Auditions for Guys & Dolls JR

January 2 @ 4:30 pm - 7:30 pm

The Bigfork Playhouse Children’s Theater invites students in grades 2 through 6 to audition, Tuesday January 2, for the cast of “Guys & Dolls Jr. – based on the classic ‘Golden Age’ Musical.

Guys and Dolls JR. is an adaptation of the show considered by many to be the perfect musical comedy.  Set in New York City, Guys and Dolls JR. follows gambler, Nathan Detroit, as he tries to find the cash to set up the biggest crap game in town while the authorities breathe down his neck. Meanwhile, his girlfriend and nightclub performer, Adelaide, laments that they’ve been engaged for fourteen years without ever getting married. Nathan turns to fellow gambler, Sky Masterson, for the dough, but Sky ends up chasing the straight-laced missionary, Sarah Brown. Guys and Dolls JR. takes us from the heart of Times Square to the cafes of Havana, but everyone eventually ends up right where they belong.  Songs include: “Adelaide’s Lament,” the romantic “I’ve Never Been in Love Before,” the exuberant “If I Were a Bell,” and the classic “Luck Be a Lady.”

Auditions will be held at the Bigfork Playhouse Children’s Theatre afterschool Center on (on 833 Grand Dr.) on Tuesday, January 2nd, from 4:30-5:30 PM for 2nd and 3rd grades, and 5:30-7:30 PM for 4th through 6th grades.  (Performances January 26 & 27 and Feb 2 & 3 at 7:30 and February 4 at 2:00)

This production calls for a large cast of around 40.  It costs nothing to audition and only $50 to be a part of the show if cast.  Please prepare a 30 second Monologue or short selection from another play, poem or book, (we’ll have several at the audition if you can’t find one) and plan to learn and sing something for us at the audition.  Don’t worry if you don’t have experience, we’ll have materials at the theatre for you. Wear comfortable shoes that you can move in, as we will be moving around the stage.  (Please do NOT SING your audition, we’ll teach you a song when you’re there)

Not interested in stage work but would like to be involved? Give us a call! We need help with the technical parts – building sets, props, costumes, lights and sound.  Parental and student assistance is welcome.  To sign-up and for more information, call 837-4886 or email or check our website at
