“Fun Home” musical auditions slated Feb. 3

Auditions for New Minowa Players musical production of “Fun Home” will be held on Saturday, Feb. 3, from 1 to 4 p.m.

Elementary age actors through adult actors are invited to audition for the following character parts: two women in their 40s, one man in his 40s, two college-age women, one young man who plays four different characters, and three elementary-age actors, two of whom are boys but could be played by girls. 

Actors interested in auditioning should prepare a short monologue (no more than 2 minutes) and be prepared to sing songs listed on the audition form which can be found at newminowaplayers.org.

“Fun Home” is a musical based on Alison Bechdel’s Graphic Novel of the same name. Moving between past and present, Alison relives her unique childhood playing at the family’s Bechdel Funeral Home, her growing understanding of her own sexuality, and the looming, unanswerable questions about her father’s hidden desires. Directors say the production is “a refreshingly honest, wholly original musical about seeing your parents through grown up eyes”.
