WCU to Hold Carey Dinner Theatre Auditions
Auditions for cast and interviews with crew for the 37th season of Carey Dinner Theatre (CDT) are Saturday, March 31, beginning at 10 a.m. in the Joe and Virginia Tatum Theatre on the Hattiesburg campus of William Carey University.
CDT presents two musicals in June and July. All members of the company, performers and staff, will be compensated. The financial package includes salary, tips (company members serve during dinner), and housing.
Those auditioning as performers will present a one-minute monolog from a modern prose play (no dialect), a one-minute vocal selection from a Broadway musical, and will participate in a dance audition. An accompanist will be available, but will not transpose. Taped accompaniment may be used. Each person who auditions should bring comfortable clothes for the dance audition.
Audition requirements for pianists include a prepared two-minute selection from a Broadway musical. Sight reading will be required.
Interviews will be held for technicians, costume assistants, house-box office managers, and office assistants. Each person will complete an application and interview with staff. Portfolios are invited. Performers may also apply for staff positions.
Each applicant should bring a head shot to the audition/interview. For more information call 601-318-6218 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Contracts are offered only to those who have graduated from high school by May 28, 2012, and to college and non-college students. The company commitment is May 28 through July 23.
