Auditions for THE C.A.T.S. COUNTRY REVUE
(Sponsored by The Medicine Shoppe Pharmacy and Watkins Hearing Aids Center.)
Monday, June 8 and Tuesday, June 9 from 6:00 p.m. until 7:30 p.m.
People of all ages are invited to audition; however, there will be a limited number of available spots for cast members in this production.
Prior to the audition dates, it is essential for all interested parties to prepare a solo of their choice. It is recommended that everyone prepare to sing a country song which showcases their vocal range and abilities.No a cappella singing will be accepted at auditions. Everyone is asked to bring a karaoke-style CD which contains the backing tracks for their song of choice. If anyone has difficulty obtaining a backing track, please contact Director Douglas Wright well in advance of auditions. He will be more than happy to assist with finding a suitable karaoke track for almost any audition song.
Performance dates for THE C.A.T.S. COUNTRY REVUE are August 1, 7 & 8 at 8:00 p.m. and Sunday matinee performances will take place at 2:30 p.m. on August 2 & 9. Please be sure that you are available for all performance dates before auditioning. The week prior to opening, rehearsals will be held every night, so be sure you are available during that timeframe as well.
Everyone who auditions will be required to fill out an audition form prior to taking the stage. This form is available for free download under the “Community Theatre” tab at the top of this page. Audition forms will also be on-hand in the Earl O. Horne Auditorium at the Colonial Center at the times of auditions. If you have not previously auditioned for a C.A.T.S. Community Theatre production, please bring a photo of yourself. This will help the director keep up with names and faces.
Please use the Actors Entrance at the rear of the theatre upon arrival for auditions. This entrance is located in the alley between the Colonial Center and the Quik Fuel gas station. Signs will be posted to direct newcomers to this entrance on audition day.
