If you or someone you know is a performer between the ages of 7 and 18, this is an opportunity that you don’t want to miss!

On Saturday, May 20, and Sunday, May 21, 2017, Aspire Performing Arts Company will hold auditions for its upcoming summer musical theatre productions: Madagascar – A Musical Adventure Jr. for children ages 7-11, and Grease, for pre-teens/teenagers ages 11 through 18.

Aspire PAC’s Junior Performing Ensemble (ages 7-11) will take on Madagascar – a Musical Adventure Jr. Based on the smash DreamWorks animated motion picture, Madagascar – A Musical Adventure Jr. follows all of your favorite crack-a-lackin’ friends as they escape from their home in New York’s Central Park Zoo and find themselves on an unexpected journey to the madcap world of King Julien’s Madagascar. Filled with outlandish characters, adventure galore and an upbeat score, Madagascar Jr. leaves you with no choice but to “Move It, Move It!”​

Grease is the word this summer for Aspire PAC’s Senior Performing Ensemble (ages 11-18). One of the world's most popular musicals, Greaseincludes everyone you remember from Rydell High's senior class of 1959, including Danny, Sandy, Rizzo, Kenickie, and all of the "Burger Palace Boys" and their "Pink Ladies!" Relive the romance of those "Summer Nights" and dance your way through "Greased Lightnin'" and all of the songs that became the soundtrack of a generation.

Aspire PAC has earned a strong reputation in the Wayne, NJ area for its high-quality theatrical productions and professional arts experiences for local youth. In 2016, Aspire PAC was nominated for a New Jersey Association of Community Theaters (NJACT) Award for its 2015 production of The Drowsy Chaperone. Lisa Beth Vettoso, Aspire PAC’s Artistic Director, has dedicated her life to arts education and has worked with prestigious art organizations including American Repertory Ballet, The New York City Arts in Education Roundtable, and Carnegie Hall.
