Drama Group auditions for ‘The Secret Garden’ musical set for Jan. 20, 22 and 23

The Drama Group is looking for 20 singers, dancers and actors of all ages to audition Jan. 20, 22 and 23 for the upcoming production of “The Secret Garden.”
No appointment is required, but those auditioning should prepare a song from the production or a similar musical, and expect to read from the script and learn a short dance combination, said Mary Lee Hoganson, who is directing the show. 
“The Secret Garden” is a Tony Award-winning musical based on the children’s book. Its focus is on hardship turned into hope and beauty discovered in unlikely places. It will be performed April 28, 29 and 30 at Bloom Township High School.
The musical has roles for all ages, but two principal roles are for a girl and a boy ages 10 to 12 with soprano range voices.
Auditions will be from 7 to 10 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 20; 2 to 6 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 22; and 7 to 10 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 23.  Children are encouraged to attend the Sunday afternoon audition time. All auditions will be at the Drama Group Studio Theatre, 330 W. 202nd St. in Chicago Heights.
