AUDITION UPDATE ANNOUNCEMENT for The RAVEN-A NEW MUSICAL
~SEEKING SINGERS/ACTORS for upcoming TABLE READS~
Table Reads on Mar 9th and 16th-small time commitment, great opportunity!
We are excited to announce our Two Upcoming Table Reads of the new music and script on March 9th and 16th in lieu of the Staged Readings that were originally planned for April.
We are currently looking for Strong Singers/Actors to read and sing for characters in the show and also be part of talk-backs/discussion on the progression of this show.
Auditions are this weekend, Thursday February 26 and Friday February 27th. Don’t miss out on this opportunity! Times are going quickly.
Thurs Feb 26, 2015 at 7:30-10:00pm
Fri Feb 27, 2015 at 6:00-10:00pm
(Performing Arts Youth Centre – 1371 Hastings Crescent SE)
Monday March 9, 2015 at 6:00-10:30pm
Monday March 16, 2015 at 6:00-10:30pm
The time commitment is very small, as we only require actors for the two dates (Mar 9 and 16th) and as the music/script would be sent to you before hand, the only other commitment would be the personal time for you to individually read and review the music/script before the reads to familiarize yourself with them.
We require dedicated, motivated singers/actors, who can pick up music quickly and enjoy the excitement of new work. This is a great opportunity to be a part of the growth of of a new show and have the chance as an actor to be part of a Table Read process for a new musical.
