A Company of Friends Theatrical Productions will hold open auditions Wednesday, Sept. 16, for the Halloween musical “The Little Witch of Wichita.”

It is billed as a “colorful show that is perfect for the season without being scary at all.”

All ages are needed to bring this show to life. Ages 10-13 should arrive to auditions at 5 p.m., with ages 13-17 at 6:30 p.m. and ages 18 and up at 8 p.m.

Auditions will consist of a simple dance combination, taught song from the show and cold reading from the script. If needed, callbacks will be Thursday, Sept. 17, 6-8 p.m. by invitation only.

Auditions and production will be held at the Fayetteville Train Depot at 250 Lanier Ave. E. in downtown Fayetteville. Performances are scheduled for Oct. 29-Nov. 1 with Halloween Day performances being matinees.

Eighteen performers will be cast in the show with eight roles being principal speaking roles and 10 roles being supportive ensemble roles. For a description of roles and rehearsal schedule, visit www.acofproductions.com. Please be aware that ACOF does charge an $85 production/costume free for each person who is cast in the show.

An educational and fun audition workshop will also be offered prior to auditions for those who would like to get a kick-start on learning the audition dance, song and cold read from the script. Workshop will be held Monday, Sept. 14, 5:30-8 p.m. and is for ages 10 to adults. The fee for the shop is $35, space is limited and pre-registration is required to attend. It is not required that you take the workshop to audition.
