The Hard Bargain Players and director Melissa Gilpin are pleased to announce auditions for “BAMBI: A LIFE IN THE WOODS”, our Children’s Theatre production for the 2017 Season.

BAMBI: A LIFE IN THE WOODS
Based on the story by Felix Salten
Adapted by James DeVita
Directed by Melissa Ball
Tuesday, July 18, 2017 at 7:00 PM

Here for the first time is a stage version of the original story of Bambi written by Austrian novelist Felix Salten in the 1920s. Bambi: A Life in the Woods is an eloquent and haunting tale of growing up in a superbly theatrical and sensitive work of theatre, appealing to children and adults alike. Bambi becomes heir to his father, the great prince. After Bambi encounters and masters for the first time the novel feelings of love, fear, loneliness and independence, he comes to understand that all of Earth’s creatures are guided by a greater force than themselves—all are dependent on each. Intertwined in this great story is Bambi’s growing awareness of the fragility of the forest environment and the impact of human encroachment on all of the forest inhabitants.

Show dates are September 8 & 15 (8:00), September 9 &16 (3:00), September 10 &17 (3:00). Please bring a list of conflicts with you to auditions as rehearsals will be planned based on actor availability.

We watch them as they relive the follies from their past and create new ones along the way. This lively reunion is a large ensemble show with excellent songs and dances for lead, supporting and featured performers.
