Would you like to be a part of an NTPA production? For many of our shows, your journey to “take the stage” starts by signing up for an NTPA Audition. These auditions are intended to align a student’s desires, experience and talents with the Director’s vision for each of these roles in a show. Our auditions are hosted by at least two theatre professionals who will provide a positive and constructive learning experience in a friendly and supportive environment.
If you are thinking about signing up your first audition but aren’t sure what to expect, you might consider attending a FREE UpSTARt Workshop which is a fast-paced, high-energy, and fun-filled two-hour workshop designed to our future actors the confidence and training to “take the stage” in their first audition.
Based on the original Broadway production that ran for over thirteen years and was nominated for nine Tony Awards, and the Academy Award-winning motion picture, Disney’s Beauty and the Beast JR. is a fantastic adaptation of the story of transformation and tolerance. Disney’s Beauty and the Beast JR. features some of the most popular songs ever written by Alan Menken and the late Howard Ashman, along with new songs by Mr. Menken and Tim Rice.
The classic story tells of Belle, a young woman in a provincial town, and the Beast, who is really a young prince trapped under the spell of an enchantress. If the Beast can learn to love and be loved, the curse will end and he will be transformed to his former self. But time is running out. If the Beast does not learn his lesson soon, he and his household will be doomed for all eternity.
Music by ALAN MENKEN. Lyrics by HOWARD ASHMAN & TIM RICE. Book by LINDA WOOLVERTON. Originally Directed by Rob Roth. Originally Produced by Disney Theatrical Productions.
