Auditions for Theatre Baton Rouge’s production of “Spring Awakening” are by appointment only 10 a.m.-1 p.m. and 2 p.m.- 6 p.m. Saturday at Theatre Baton Rouge, 7155 Florida Blvd. Callbacks will be Sunday.
Auditions will consist of a one- to two-minute prepared monologue and 16 bars of a song not from the show.
“Spring Awakening” takes place in 1891 Germany. It explores the confusion and desperation that ensue when the onrushing tide of hormones meets the ignorance of youth. The story also celebrates the unforgettable journey to adulthood with a power, poignancy and passion that audiences will never forget.
