BRATTLEBORO- New England Youth Theater announces auditions for the Summer Musical: “The Pajama Game.” Youth ages 12-19 are welcome to participate in the audition, which will be held on March 31 from 4 to 6 pm.

Auditioners will need to prepare 16 bars of a ballad and 16 bars of an up-tempo song. There will also be a dance component. All are encouraged to wear comfortable, appropriate movement clothing. Short scenes from the play, currently available in the NEYT office, are another audition requirement. Auditioners will read the scenes with other actors. Everyone is expected to arrive at 4 pm and stay until the end of the audition.

“The Pajama Game” is a musical based on the novel “7 1/2 Cents” by Richard Bissell, featuring a score by Richard Adler and Jerry Ross. The story deals with labor troubles in a pajama factory, where worker demands for a 7 1/2 cent raise are going unheeded. In the midst of this ordeal, love blossoms between Babe, the grievance committee head, and Sid, the new factory superintendent.
