Current Audition Opportunities

CFCArts Theatre is currently auditioning for “Ragtime”
CFCArts Children & Youth Arts is currently auditioning for
Disney’s “The Jungle Book Kids,” “A Celebration of Idris Goodwin,” and “Sister Act”

The CFCArts Theatre is excited to produce Ragtime at 3pm and 8pm on June 18th and 19th at the Alexis & Jim Pugh Theater at the Dr. Phillips Center. The show will be co-directed by Roberta Emerson and Joe Walsh with music direction by Justin Muchoney.

Central Florida Community Arts is seeking submissions for Ensemble members for our upcoming production of Ragtime. Central Florida Community Arts Theatre is a community theatre and as such, all roles are unpaid.

About the Show:
At the dawn of a new century, everything is changing… and anything is possible. Set in the volatile melting pot of turn-of-the-century New York, three, distinctly American tales are woven together – that of a stifled, upper-class wife; a determined, Jewish immigrant; and a daring, young, Harlem musician – united by their courage, compassion, and belief in the promise of the future. Together, they confront history’s timeless contradictions of wealth and poverty, freedom and prejudice, hope and despair, and what it means to live in America.

Rehearsal Schedule:
Rehearsals will begin at 6:30pm, will last until 9:30pm, and will take place at the CFCArts Main Campus (250 SW Ivanhoe Blvd. Orlando, FL 32804) with a more detailed schedule to follow.

Elementary and Middle School Performance Camp – Disney’s The Jungle Book Kids

Young performers looking for an advanced, selective summer experience, look no further. Students in our Advanced Performance Camp, admitted by audition only, will learn advanced, high-level skills in acting, singing, and dancing as they prepare to perform in a musical theatre production. Taught and produced by professional artists, this Advanced Performance Camp will culminate in ticketed performances of Disney’s The Jungle Book Kids open to the public with full sets, costumes, props, lighting, sound, and more!

– About the Show –

The jungle is jumpin’ with a jazzy beat in Disney’s The Jungle Book KIDS, presented by the CFCArts Children & Youth Arts Programs. Specially adapted from the classic Disney animated film, Disney’s The Jungle Book KIDS features a host of colorful characters and your favorite songs from the movie.

Banished by the ferocious tiger, Shere Khan, a human boy named Mowgli and his panther friend, Bagheera, are on the run in the deepest parts of the jungle. On their journey, the two meet a sinister snake named Kaa, a herd of elephants and a giant bear named Baloo, who teaches them the swingin’ musical rhythms of the jungle. After surviving a dangerous encounter with a band of monkeys led by King Louie, Mowgli and Bagheera are forced to run for their lives. When Shere Khan returns, our heroes must rally their fellow animals into battle and restore peace throughout the jungle.

Disney’s The Jungle Book KIDS has a large, expandable ensemble and many strong, featured roles for good singers. Several roles, including Baloo and King Louie, are great for kids with strong comedic skills. The chorus can be expanded to include various animals, trees, plants, rocks and many other jungle inhabitants. Many numbers also involve the full chorus in easy unison singing, making it a great first pick.

High School Acting Performance Camp – A Celebration of Idris Goodwin: American Prom and How We Got On

Young performers looking for an advanced, selective summer experience, look no further. Students in our Advanced Acting Performance Camp, admitted by audition only, will learn advanced, high-level skills in acting as they prepare to perform in a two-show theatre production centered on the experiences of teenagers in America today. Taught and produced by professional artists, this Advanced Performance Camp will culminate in ticketed performances of acclaimed contemporary playwright Idris Goodwin’s American Prom and How We Got On open to the public!

– About the Show –

Join the CFCArts Children & Youth Arts Programs for a night of one-act plays by contemporary American playwright and breakbeat poet Idris Goodwin. How We Got On and American Prom incorporate elements of hip-hop, rap, and spoken word and are centered on important contemporary issues from racial and gender identity to friendship and family.

How We Got On: Hank, Julian, and Luann are three talented, determined suburban teens coming of age in the 1980s. Dreaming of fame and fortune in the new Hip-Hop music scene, they must overcome cultural isolation, familial dysfunction, and ruthless rivalries to make the music that defines their lives. A sultry DJ spins their stories with her own meta-theatrical perspective in this contemporary ode to the roots of rap.

American Prom: Set in a small middle American town called Principal, this is the story of teenage best friends Jimmy T. and Kia B. Jimmy wants to take Kia to prom, but it’s complicated. Jimmy is white and Kia is black, and Principal has been holding racially segregated proms for decades. In this contemporary coming of age story, filled with music and magic, rhymes and beats, Jimmy and Kia work to hold fast to their friendship. With a little help from a musical superstar, they both fight to envision a different future for themselves and their town.

Content Warning: This production should be considered PG-13 due to frank talk of death and minor language.

High School Musical Theatre Performance Camp – Sister Act

Students in our Advanced Musical Theatre Performance Camp, admitted by audition only, will learn advanced, high-level skills in acting as they prepare to perform in a musical theatre production. Taught and produced by professional artists, this Advanced Performance Camp will culminate in ticketed performances of the musical Sister Act open to the public!

– About the Show –

The CFCArts Children & Youth Arts Programs presents Sister Act, the feel-good musical comedy smash based on the hit 1992 film that has audiences jumping to their feet! Featuring original music by Tony- and eight-time Oscar winner, Alan Menken (Newsies, Beauty and the Beast, Little Shop of Horrors), this uplifting musical was nominated for five Tony Awards, including Best Musical.

When disco diva, Deloris Van Cartier, witnesses a murder, she is put in protective custody in the one place the cops are sure she won’t be a found: a convent! Disguised as a nun, she finds herself at odds with both the rigid lifestyle and uptight Mother Superior. Using her unique disco moves and singing talent to inspire the choir, Deloris breathes new life into the church and community but, in doing so, blows her cover. Soon, the gang is giving chase, only to find them up against Deloris and the power of her newly found sisterhood.

Filled with powerful gospel music, outrageous dancing and a truly moving story, Sister Act will leave audiences breathless. The cast is chock full of amazing roles for women of all ages, making this a perfect choice for high schools and community theatres. A sparkling tribute to the universal power of friendship, Sister Act is reason to rejoice!
