The Maltz Jupiter Theatre is seeking diverse young performers (ages 14 to 18) for the ensemble “Four Seasons Fan Club” in the theatre’s three-week run of Broadway’s Jersey Boys, from January 11-30. Some performing experience is helpful and the performers must be able to work with professional actors in an ensemble setting, as well as lift and move props as needed.
Auditions will take place Friday, July 30, at ArtStage Performing Arts Center from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m., located at 801 Maplewood Drive, Suite 22A, in Jupiter. Sign-in begins at 5:30 p.m.
Performers are asked to bring a headshot and resume and prepare 16 bars of a song in the show’s style. Performers should bring sheet music, but an accompanist will be provided. Any candidates unable to attend in person may email a photo, resume, and video with a song and full body slate (video introduction) to email@example.com with the subject “Jersey Boys Fan Club Audition.”
Actors must be available for all performances (eight shows per week, including Wednesday matinees), rehearsals, tech rehearsals, and previews. Actors will be unpaid but will be eligible to receive Equity Membership Candidate Program (EMC) points, which will count toward eventual membership in the Actors’ Equity Association union.
“As the largest regional theatre in the southern half of the U.S., we are committed to offering exceptional performance opportunities to the next generation of actors whenever we can,” said Andrew Kato, the Maltz Jupiter Theatre’s producing artistic director and chief executive. “This is a fantastic opportunity for young actors to train and perform alongside professionals in a large-scale hit musical. This unique production will go down in history as an audience favorite for years to come, and I’m proud that our local youth will be able to say they were part of it.”
A 2005 jukebox musical with music by Bob Gaudio, lyrics by Bob Crewe, and book by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice, Jersey Boys tells the story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons and features a smash hit score spanning two decades of hits. Chronicling the struggles and triumphs of making it big, this Broadway sensation is a treat for all ages. With songs like “Sherry,” “My Eyes Adore You” and “Walk Like A Man,” enjoy the show everyone will be talking about with this smash hit musical in Jupiter in January!
