ACT "goes" Full Monty, gears up for Parton show

Auditions for 'Best Little Whorehouse' next week


Auditions for the musical will be held on Feb. 12 and 13 at ACT's headquarters at 250 Canal St., fourth floor, in Lawrence. The group casts for their adult shows based on the age of the characters, so it's expected that all cast members will be young adults or older, Gracy said.

To end the year, ACT's adult cast will be the first group in New England to put on a production based on the recent Les Miserables movie, as ACT is the first group in the region to secure the rights to the musical following the release of the movie, according to Gracy.

Auditions for Les Miserables will run over the summer, with performances to be held at the end of October, Gracy said.

Once ACTjr's Seussical is in the books, the organization will then start building up for its ACTjr and ACTkids camps, which will both run from July 15 to Aug. 11.

ACTjr will put on the musical RENT, with ACTkids performing Disney's The Little Mermaid.
