Thatcher, AZ—Auditions for Eastern Arizona College’s spring musical, Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, will be held January 11-13, with acting/singing auditions on Monday, January 11, at 7 p.m.; dance auditions, on Tuesday, January 12, at 7 p.m.; and call backs (if needed), will be held on January 13, at 7 p.m. All auditions will be held in the EAC Fine Arts Auditorium.

Community members (16 years or older in age) are encouraged to audition; however, all those auditioning should be prepared to commit to the rehearsal schedule. For the first night, interested performers should prepare 24-36 measures of a song of their choice (preferably from a musical) and a one-minute monologue.

Dance auditions will be held on the second night and it is important to dress comfortably. This musical has a large amount of dance numbers and all interested in participating must attend.

All auditionees must attend both Monday and Tuesday auditions.

The performance dates for this show are April 5-9, 2016.

 “This is a great show and an all-time favorite in the American musical theatre repertoire,” says Steven Higginbotham, EAC’s drama director. “There are many great roles and we look forward to a wonderful experience in producing this show.”

Higginbotham encourages all interested individuals to come and audition. For more information, contact Higginbotham at (928) 428-8460 or by e-mail at
