Auditions for Brucemore Outdoor Children’s Theater production of The Amazing Story Machine will be held on Sunday, May 12 from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. and Monday, May 13 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. in the Bookbindery/Squash Court located near the Brucemore Visitor Center, 2160 Linden Dr. SE. Various roles are available for males and females at least 18 years of age and prepared to interact with young audiences.  This is a cold-reading audition; no advance preparation required.

The Amazing Story Machine will pull audiences out of their seats and into the action as Arthur and his pet mouse, Rusty, bring well-known fairytales and favorite stories to life with the amazing story machine.  With just the right turn of a knob or pull of a lever, the machine will transform individuals into Cinderella, Hansel, Gretel, or original characters right on the spot.

Directed by Nathan Nelson, the performances will be Wednesday, July 24, through Saturday, July 27, at 5:30 and 7:30 p.m.  Rehearsals will begin mid-June.  For further information on auditions, contact Brucemore at (319) 362-7375 or Artistic Director Nathan Nelson at (415) 226-9319.
