Parkway Playhouse Seeks Actors, Interns, and More at Auditions on March 15
Parkway Playhouse is hosting a second open audition 2014 Season in Burnsville on March 15 from 10am to 2pm at the Mountain Heritage Center, located at 113 Green Mountain Drive in Burnsville.
The theatre is looking to fill 50 some roles in its 6 show mainstage season with actors of all ages and types for a wide-ranging and adventurous season of plays. The 2014 Season includes the Clyde Edgerton Comedy/Drama Walking Across Egypt, a haunting Civil War story with Ghost Riders, Forever Plaid a 1950’s era musical comedy; The King & I which is musical classic; a rollicking adaptation of Treasure Island; and A Midsummer Night’s Dream a fairy-tale inspired comedy about mismatched couples.
“We are very much looking forward to our upcoming season” commented Parkway Playhouse Artistic Director, Andrew Gall. “We are looking to cast numerous roles onstage and off and are looking for people with a wide range of experience and talent as well as people who are interested and may have no experience at all. Everyone is welcome. We cannot always cast everyone who auditions, but if you don’t audition, we cannot cast you. “
In addition to performers, Parkway Playhouse is eagerly seeking people who want to get involved backstage as well as on stage. Information about getting involved with set construction, lighting and sound, costumes, and serving as one of Parkway Playhouse’s Docent will be available at auditions, along with schedules.
Parkway Playhouse will also be accepting applications for its College Intern Program and High School Apprentice Programs. Interns and Apprentices who are selected will get hands on opportunities to learn about various aspects of producing theatre. Apprentices and Interns will follow a curriculum that rotates them through all of the various production and administrative jobs, as well as involves them in the theatre’s performances.
“It is important to remember that for every person onstage, it takes about 2 or 3 more people behind the scenes to support the work” comments Gall. “When it all comes together, and the lights come up on a production that reflects the best work of everyone involved, it is exhilarating. So we hope to see as many people as we can for auditions in March.”
