Audition for Into the Woods at McCoy’s Grand

McCoy’s Grand Theatre is hosting an Audition for the upcoming performance of Into the Woods. Based on the TONY Award-winning book and score as both are enchanting and touching as the story follows a Baker and his wife who wish to have a child, Cinderella who wishes to attend the King’s Festival, and Jack who wishes his cow would give milk. When the Baker and his wife learn that they cannot have a child because of a Witch’s curse, the two set off on a journey to break the curse and meet many other storybook characters along the journey. Everyone’s wish is granted, but the consequences of their actions return to haunt them later with disastrous results. Auditions for Into The Woods will be Friday, May 15th at 5:30 pm until 8:30 pm and Saturday, May 16th at 11:30 am until 1:30 pm at McCoy’s Grand Theater in Moorefield, WV. Cast will be comprised of adults and teenagers. If interested in auditioning, please bring a prepared piece. Those interested need to attend at least one of the auditions and bring a schedule that will outline conflict dates for over the summer. Production dates are scheduled for later this summer. If you are unable to attend the auditions but are still interested in the show, please contact the Director, Sarah Widder via
