Young Stars Theatre, the resident youth company at Fremont Centre Theatre, is now holding auditions for the spring production of Into The Woods Jr., an engaging and funny musical comedy that twists familiar fairy tales into a brand new story. There are dozens of roles for young thespians and aspiring thespians ages 6-18. Read more about YST here and see more of their work here. Below find the breakdown for the auditions. Break a leg!
Entry into each workshop session is by audition only. Each workshop session will consist in studying and participation in a full Musical Theatre performance. Each performer will get to perform their role in the entire production with 8-16 performances over 4 weekends.
Auditions will be held in a 2 hour workshop where each auditioner will get to sing, dance, and read from sides in consideration for that show’s full production workshop.
ALL auditioners will pay a $75 deposit. This deposit is non-refundable except under the conditions listed under “After the audition” below.

One absence will be considered for casting, 2 or more makes it a very slim chance that you would be offered a role in the workshop.
After the audition:
Within a week after the audition workshop you will receive an email letting you know if you are accepted into the workshop.
1) If you are invited into the workshop CONGRATULATIONS! At that time – the remainder of tuition, $150, will be due.
2) If you are not cast and invited into the workshop you will be refunded the $75 deposit and we encourage you to audition again in the future.
3) If you are offered a role that you stated on your audition form that you would accept, but then choose not to participate, your audition deposit is non-refundable as we will use that for the time and resources we will need to use to recast the role.

Cinderella is a simple peasant girl whose one wish is to go to the Festival. Unfortunately, when her wish comes true she learns that wishes sometimes come with consequences. Cinderella’s inner beauty always shines through her sometimes clumsy and awkward exterior.
Jack is an energetic young man who is always looking for an adventure. He begins this show as a simple little boy (his best friend is a cow), but by the end of the show he learns a few valuable lessons.
Raising a son and running a farm all by herself has made Jack’s Mother a bit frazzled and most definitely overworked.
The Baker is a good-hearted, likeable person who believes he can take on the Witch’s curse all by himself. At first, this confidence and his desire to have a child drives him, but he soon learns he needs his wife’s help to accomplish the goal.
The Baker’s Wife is a strong, determined and loving woman whose desire to have a child drives the action of the whole show.
