Event Navigation

The Palace Theatre is gearing up to bring the magical land of Arendelle to life on stage this October. In preparations for the fun-filled Disney musical, director Kristi Wink is seeking girls and boys, ages 8-15 years, to fill the roles of Elsa, Anna, and Olaf, among many other beloved characters, for this Junior Palace Production. FROZEN, JR features all of the memorable songs from the animated film, with music and lyrics by Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, plus five new songs written for the Broadway production.

AUDITION DATE: Sunday, August 18, 2019 from 1pm-4pm

AUDITION DETAILS:
Seeking ages 8-15 years. All participants should enter through the front PAVILION doors. Auditioners should come dressed in casual clothing and shoes appropriate for performing choreography. Those interested in chorus only will be asked to dance and sing with a group. Individuals wishing to audition for principle roles are asked to come prepared to sing a one-minute audition tune and read from the script. A pianist will be provided. No CDs and no songs from the show please.

CHARACTER BREAKDOWN:

Young Anna, Middle Anna, and Anna are all the young Princess of Arendelle at different ages. Filled with a tremendous amount of light, energy, and love, Anna is a hopelessly optimistic extrovert at all ages, but as she grows older, she longs for connection with others, especially her sister, Elsa. Each version of this warm and determined princess requires a strong singer with great comic timing.

Young Elsa, Middle Elsa, and Elsa are all the elder Princess of Arendelle at different ages. Next in line for the throne, Elsa has been born with magical powers that can overwhelm her when she becomes afraid and harm others if not handled with care. Fearful of hurting anyone, especially her beloved sister, Anna, Elsa becomes anxious and withdrawn as she grows older, before eventually learning to take control of, and become confident in, her powers which she masterfully uses to manipulate the Snow Chorus.

King Agnarr
The warm-hearted ruler of Arendelle is committed to protecting both his family and the Townspeople from his eldest daughter’s powers. Searching for a young actor who can play this father figure convincingly.

Queen Iduna
The queen possesses a sense of rightness and kindness that guides her in her protection of her two young girls. A daughter of the Northern Nomads, this queen has the ability to communicate with the Hidden Folk of the mountains and so understands Elsa’s powers deeply. Searching for an actor who can portray this sense of compassion.

Pabbie & Bulda
Pabbie and Bulda are the mystical leaders of the Hidden Folk who have a soft spot for “strays.” Ever-benevolent, these parental figures want what’s best for Kristoff, even if they are a bit misguided in their efforts. Searching for amiable performers who will endear themselves to the audience in the crowd- pleaser, “Fixer Upper.

Bishop
The bishop officiates the coronation and passing of the crown to Elsa. This spiritual supervisor must communicate to the Townspeople of Arendelle in a serious and formal manner.

Kristoff
Kristoff is a hardworking ice harvester. Kristoff has a sarcastic veneer and a rough-around-the-edges exterior that hides a big heart. Taken in by the Hidden Folk when he was young, he loves Pabbie and Bulda dearly, but is a bit of a loner with a reindeer for a best friend- until he meets Anna. Searching for a performer who can balance a cynical sense of humor with charming banter.
Gender: Male
Vocal range top: A3
Vocal range bottom: G2

Sven
Sven is a reindeer of few words, fiercely loyal pal to Kristoff, and loves giving the ice harvester a hard time. Searching for a performer with good comic timing and terrific physical acting skills who can devise a strong movement vocabulary to bring this furry charmer to life.
Gender: Any
Vocal range top: A4
Vocal range bottom: A3

Hans
The ambitious Prince of the Southern Isles and overlooked thirteenth son of a king. Hans constantly strives to find a way to make good and stand out. He boasts an exceedingly charming facade that fools everyone – including Anna and, ideally, the audience! – into believing he’s Prince Charming, when really, he’s just a jerk. Searching for an actor who can play both sides of this two-faced prince with relish as well as confidently sing the moments of harmony in “Love Is an Open Door.”
Gender: Male
Vocal range top: B3
Vocal range bottom: G2

Weselton
A visiting duke who possesses a huge inferiority complex. A bombastic, overbearing sycophant, Weselton’s sole purpose is to hobnob with influencers and royalty. Searching for an actor who can portray the narrow-minded naysayer with over-the-top gusto.
Gender: Any

Olaf
The magical snowman created by Anna and Elsa when they were young. Olaf is endearingly delighted by everything – especially the idea of summer. Goofy and sweet, Olaf should possess a childlike innocence and excellent comic timing.
Gender: Male
Vocal range top: D4
Vocal range bottom: F#2

Oaken
An exceedingly cheerful and convivial wandering salesperson and ardent devotee to all things cozy and comfortable. Oaken’s “Hygge” is a showstopper, so we are looking for an actor who can portray the peppy peddler’s infectious warmth with flair and good humor.
Gender: Any

Ensemble
Includes the following roles: Townspeople, Snow Chorus, Hidden Folk, Castle Staff, Housekeeper, Butler, Handmaiden, Cook, Steward, Guards, Summer Chorus, Oaken’s Family
Gender: Any

SHOW DATES/TICKETS: October 4, 5, & 6, 2019 | Main Stage | $15 adults; $12 children.
