Dates are set for Ouachita Little Theatre’s spring musical production of “BIG.” Based on the 1987 motion picture fantasy, this musical bursts on the stage as an unforgettable theatrical experience. Lead character Josh Baskin, a young teen, makes a wish on the Zoltar machine at a local carnival to skip this this awkward stage of life and become “big.” The musical production highlights all the memorable movie moments, including Zoltar and a giant floor piano. There are stand out roles for adults as well as young people. This family-friendly show is full of high energy singing and dancing, but you don’t have to necessarily sing or dance well to be part of the ensemble action on stage. There are also lots of fun backstage jobs. You could assist costumer Jane Buttermilk, or help with props, construct or move sets, and perform many other tasks.
Director Jessica Kropp and Music Director Judy Kropp along with choreographer Gini Burt will be looking for all ages to fill roles (males and females) and there is a need for a large cast. This is a great time to try out for the first time for an OLT musical! Consider participating together as a family to make special memories.
Performance dates are May 14, 15, 16, 22, 23, and 24, 2020. Because there will be no show Sunday, May 17, due to the MHS graduation, the May 14 date is a Thursday. Rehearsals will be scheduled in the early evenings, beginning in March.
Auditions are scheduled for Wednesday, February 26th from 7:00 – 9:00 PM and Thursday, February 27th from 4:30 PM to 6:00 PM. Tryouts will be held at OLT unless otherwise announced.
