CREW MEMBERS & NEWBIES:

Audition nights are a perfect time to come out, meet the director, and express your interest in helping out backstage, be it in the role of a stage manager, lights & sound operator, concessions, or whatever else you might like to do.

They’re also GREAT for first-timers to come out and observe how things are done, maybe express interest in being a helper, or read for a part!  Our January show featured someone in the lead role who’d never acted before and came to auditions out of curiosity more than anything else.  You never know what can happen!
