AUDITION CALL - for Citizens of Our Town
Want to be a part of the re-mounting of ACT’s very first show?
Most people who know anything about theatre know about Our Town. It’s the Thornton Wilder classic which gets performed at least once a day somewhere in the world. It will be performed in our Charlotte’s town on a half-a-dozen days next April. That’s when ACT (a community theatre) will celebrate the troupe’s 20th anniversary with the play that started them going back in 1995.
Auditions for the fresh production are coming up. Plenty of parts are to be cast: there are approximately two dozen citizens of Our Town, in a roughly balanced mix of men and women. Two of the major roles are for teenagers, and children of several ages are also needed.
Rehearsals will start in January, and will be held using a combination of Tuesday evenings (to be confirmed), Saturday and Sunday afternoons.
The Director is Paul Whelan, and he is backed by a strong production team of ACT veterans.
To audition, a person will be asked to read from the script, but may also bring a prepared piece of their own . To arrange an audition, contact Kim Johnston at 902-621-0645 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Appointments are available on Saturday afternoon, November 15th, or possibly by special arrangement . The location is Charlottetown Rural High School.
