If you cannot attend all dress rehearsals, brush up rehearsals and performances, please respect your fellow actors and tell us so you will not be cast. This does not mean don't audition, as auditions are great experience for any actor even if one does not intend to do the show.  But please remember to tell the director you will not be available to actually be in the show as you have other commitments. 

If you have any questions about these four productions, please feel free to email me at We look forward to seeing you at auditions!  You do not have to bring anything except yourself.  You will be asked to read from the scripts of the shows for which you want to audition. Unfortunately we do not have the scripts available prior to the auditions.  And please be prepared to stay for four hours for the adult auditions as we are auditioning for four shows.  We will read each play for about 30 minutes, then switch to the next play, etc. and then after two hours we will start all over again for the second reading of each play.  Whew!  But think of all the fun we will have!  And you do not have to come to both days of auditioning! So, choose which audition you want to attend, come on down and bring your friends.  There are lots of parts for lots of people!  Thanks and see you soon!

  • Alltel Arena?

    So now that Verizon has become the Godzilla of American Cellphonery, what's going to happen to Alltel Arena?  Will Verizon keep the sponsorship tie-in, will someone else step up and buy it or will it retain the Alltel name (which I'm sure it can't after the deal is up as the name is now property of Verizon, right?)
