Come Audition For Our Latest Shows!
DOUBLE FEATURE- ALICE IN WONDERLAND & THE WIZARD OF OZ
-Directed by Marc Hammes
On Stage presents a reader’s theater/media hi-brid theater experience. Actor’s will perform a dramatic reading of an adapted script based on the Lux Radio Theatre scripts of ALICE IN WONDERLAND and THE WIZARD OF OZ using sound effects, lighting and mulit-media images/videos. Join us for this highly original and fun portrayal of your two favorite stories!
*Actors will be performing in a live studio audience radio style. NO MEMORIZATION NECESSARY- scripts will be used like a readers theater production. Actors will be playing several different characters so your ability to have several “voices” are key, but the audience will also experience lighting effects, videos, still pictures and much more. This will create a lot of fun and flexibility in casting! It is ALL in your voice!
Auditions: Wednesday, Jan. 20, 6-8pm & Saturday, Jan. 23, 3-5pm
Please come any time during the audition dates and times. Actors MUST wear a mask to enter. Social distancing will be enforced and you may be asked to wait in your car until called, if necessary.
