Audition dates, times announced for 2018’s ‘Broadway Comes to Greeneville’

Local kids will get a chance to perform with Broadway stars this spring.

Auditions have been set for the upcoming “Broadway Comes to Greeneville,” which raises awareness and support for Niswonger Children’s Hospital.

Beginning Feb. 19, auditions will take place across the region for children who want to be cast in the annual event, now in its seventh year. “Broadway Comes to Greeneville” is a production of the Ballad Health Foundation and presenting sponsor Consumer Credit Union. It’s a Broadway-style show featuring the youth talent selected at the upcoming auditions.

Broadway stars David Elder (“Guys and Dolls” and “42nd Street”), Gary Mauer (“The Phantom of the Opera” and “Les Miserables”) and Elizabeth Southard (“The Phantom of the Opera” and “The Sound of Music”) will perform at the event on Sunday, April 29, at 3 p.m. at Niswonger Performing Arts Center (NPAC) in Greeneville, Tennessee.

Auditions are open to youth ages 7 to 17. Kids interested in auditioning should prepare a classical song, country song or Broadway song to perform for the judges. There will be a one-minute performance time for each vocalist, and for convenience, there will be a wireless speaker, piano and CD player available at each audition. However, if vocalists want to use an accompanist, they will need to bring their own. Vocalists can only audition once.

Audition times and locations are listed below.

Monday, Feb. 19, 5:30 p.m. – Annie Hogan Byrd Theatre, Tusculum College, Greeneville, Tennessee
Monday, Feb. 26, 5:30 p.m. – First Christian Church, 200 E. Mountcastle Drive, Johnson City, Tennessee
Monday, March 5, 5:30 p.m. – Barter Theatre, Stage II, 110 W. Main St., Abingdon, Virginia
