(More) Auditions! Auditions! Auditions!

Sunday, February 5th, 2:00PM at NOVA

A fun, familiar musical. Open auditions, looking for singers, dancers, comedians, thespians, and theater lovers! (Crews are always needed besides those that are on-stage).

*A note from the Director: Please plan to be on time as we will begin with a brief presentation discussing the concept of the show. There will be some “cold” readings (scripts provided). Please come prepared with 16 to 24 bars of music, please bring sheet music as accompaniment will be provided. All ladies are asked to bring (VERY) high-heeled shoes, if auditioning for Fannie, or the Zigfeld Girls.

Those auditioning specifically for the role of Fanny Brice are to choose a piece that can be “belted out” (music term for full-on double forte)!

Thank you, Gary Treglown

Sunday, February 12th and Monday, February 13th, 2023 at NOVA. 6:00PM, no preparations needed.

Production runs April 21, 22, 23* and 28, 29 30, 2023 (Fri. & Sat. at 7:30PM, Sunday at 2:00PM)

From the Director, Gus Belotta:
It’s a pretty serious play with a lot of great moments, a wide range of emotions. Here’s a blurb:
The play is a three-act drama which takes place on a single night on 5 April 1912. The play focusses on the prosperous upper middle-class Birling family, who live in a comfortable home in the fictional town of Brumley, “an industrial city in the north Midlands.” The family is visited by a man calling himself Inspector Goole, who questions the family about the suicide of a young working-class woman in her mid-twenties.
It plays out like a mystery with twists and turns and revelations.
It’s going to be a great show, and you should be a part of it!

AUDITIONS!! Monday, January 16th, 6:00PM at NOVA

Shakespeare’s “Taming of the Shrew”…..the smart and sassy Katherina vs. the equally smart and sassy Petruchio! Plus a cast of characters playing other characters, pretending to be others, and all trying to find love (or money)! Join the cast and see how fun The Bard really is!

Performance dates are March 10-12 & 17-19.
