WORKING Auditions Next Week!

Auditions for the spring musical, Stephen Schwartz’s WORKING, are next Monday and Tuesday evenings, January 9-10, 2017. (Come either night, not both.)

Please come out to audition for this incredible show! Be prepared to sing, move and read (no need to prepare a song); we will teach a song and a dance. There are 26 characters, ranging from one role for a 9- to 13-year-old boy, to fascinating roles for a variety of adult ages (some appropriate for older teens). There are also some non-singing and non-speaking roles available. Most actors will play multiple roles.

Please arrive Monday or Tuesday, Jan. 9 or 10, between 6:30 and 7:00pm to register for the auditions, which will run from 7:00 to 10:00pm each night, at the Mary Hogan Elementary School, 201 Mary Hogan Drive, Middlebury 05753. If needed, callbacks will be held Thurs., January 12.
