Syracuse Stage to Cast Local Girl (Age 9-13)
for Role of Susan Waverly in White Christmas
 
For the 2012 holiday production of White Christmas, Syracuse Stage will be casting a local actress (age 9-13) for the role of Susan Waverly, the granddaughter of General Waverly.
Description of Role: Sweet, smart, a little precocious, genuinely concerned about her grandfather, and ultimately very likable, Susan Waverly is smitten with show business and wants nothing more than to be a performer. In White Christmas, Susan sings “Let Me Sing” and “I’m Happy,” both in Act Two.
Requirements: Vocal ability to sing up to a C above middle C. Some dance or movement background would be helpful but is not required.
What to prepare: a song that is bright and cheerful, ideally from the traditional musical theatre catalogue (1920—1970). Pop material and contemporary musical theatre should be avoided. See below for a list of suggested songs.
To schedule an audition: contact Chris Botek at Syracuse Stage, 315-443-4008 or cbotek@syr.edu by April 13. Auditions will take place starting mid-April.
