Teenage boy needed for upcoming CCU musical

Coastal Carolina University's Department of Theatre is looking for a teenage boy to play the role of Theo in its upcoming musical production of "Pippin."

The role of Theo calls for a teenage boy between the ages of 11 to 15 years who can sing and act. Experience in theatre or on stage is a plus, but not necessary.

Boys who audition will be taught a song from the show and will be asked to read a scene with several of our principal actors.

Auditions will be held from 5 to 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 13, at Coastal Carolina University's Myrtle Beach Education Center, located on the corner of 79th Avenue North and U.S. 17 Bypass.

"Pippin" is a Tony Award-winning musical that is the coming of age story of a young prince longing to discover the secret of true happiness and fulfillment. In the end, he finds the simple pleasures of home and family. The show features music from the Tony and Oscar-winning composer of "Wicked," "Godspell," "Pocahontas,"" The Hunchback Of Notre Dame" and "The Prince Of Egypt."

Rehearsals will begin Jan. 6, and the performance dates for "Pippin" are Jan. 31 through Feb. 9. The show is being directed and choreographed by Barbara Hartwig, lecturer of dance and artist-in-residence at CCU, and musically directed and conducted by Michael Gribbin, visiting associate professor of theatre.

To register for auditions or for more information, call Hartwig at 843-349-2239.
