Based on the feedback from our general meeting, we are going to try something different and fun this Fall. Our Fall show will be a murder mystery dinner theater show in October 2019. This show will integrate a scripted play with some improvisation and audience interaction.
Because it is not a musical with high production values, your time commitment will be significantly reduced as actors (see schedule below) and as parent volunteers. In addition, cast fees will be reduced to $60 per child (due at auditions).
We are inviting local High School students to be more involved as our lead production team, with adults supporting as needed. In addition, we will invite theater professionals to run workshops on improvisation, stage presence, projection/enunciation, and character development.
We are holding open auditions for children in Grades 1-12 on Tuesday, August 27, 6-9:00 pm at Our Lady of Grace Church in Parkton, Maryland. For auditions, please prepare a short monologue and be ready to improv or do a cold reading.
(Cast calls will be organized based on characters.)
