Belfast Maskers invites the public to audition for the musical The Secret Garden, with book and lyrics by Marsha Norman and music by Lucy Simon, based on the Victorian novel of the same name by Frances Hodgson Burnett. Auditions will be held at Basil Burwell Community Theater, 17 Court Street in Belfast, on Sunday, March 24, at 3 p.m., and Monday, March 25, at 6 p.m. If necessary, call-backs will be the following weekend.

Auditioners are encouraged to prepare a short piece to sing, either unaccompanied or with accompaniment provided by the singer. Those without something prepared will be asked to sing a simple, well-known song and scales.

The stage director’s auditions will consist of cold reading from the script. Casting will be done by Music Director Deb Fournier and Stage Director Erik Perkins.

The Secret Garden opens on July 11 and runs Thursdays through Sundays for two weeks.

All roles are available, including the leads. Most roles call for some minimal dance, but expertise is not a requirement. All vocals are demanding.
