Beauty and the Beast Children Auditions

Our award-winning theatre program is pleased to announce upcoming auditions for our production of Beauty & The Beast.We are looking for children to round out our cast of all ages and are particularly seeking two children to share the role of Chip.


Auditions will be held at the Riverdale Y, Monday, December 9 from 6:00-7:30pm and Tuesday, December 10 from 6:00-7:30pm. Children need only attend one of these scheduled times.


Please ask the children to prepare this section of the song, “Be Our Guest”:

Be.. Our…Guest
Be Our Guest
Put our service to the test
Tie your napkin ’round your neck, cherie
And we’ll provide the rest
Soup du Jour, Hot hors d’oeuvres
Why we only live to serve
Try the grey stuff, it’s delicious
Don’t believe me? Ask the dishes


Show dates are: February 8-16. You may purchase tickets at www.RiverdaleY.org/boxoffice.

Rehearsals for children will be Sundays from 4:00pm – 5:00pm & Mondays from 6:00pm – 7:00pm, as needed. (until tech week)
