CALLBACKS: Some (but not all) auditioners may be called back for follow-up auditions on Saturday December 17th at 1 PM (Location TBA) Whether or not you are called back has NO bearing on whether you will be cast. Being called back does not mean you are getting a role, and NOT being called back doesn’t mean you are NOT getting a role. Callbacks are simply necessary when the directors want to hear someone a second time, or when they want to see how a person looks and/or sounds with certain other people. YOU DO NOT NEED TO PREPARE ANYTHING FOR CALLBACK AUDITIONS.
Rehearsals will commence January 4th and will run Monday and Wednesday evenings at St Paul’s Episcopal in Mount Vernon from 6-8…Saturday rehearsals yet to be determined.
• If cast, there is a $200 participation fee for actors under 18 years of age
