Come Audition For Our Latest Shows!
On Stage announces auditions for:
Auditions: March 7, 7-8:30pm

Actors may audition for specific parts/acts or let the Directors choose the best fit for you. All actors will be asked to do cold readings from the script. No experience necessary! Please bring your calendars and be prepared to note rehearsal conflicts.
Three one-act comedies involving a couple on the rocks, a couple attempting to relive their youth, and a couple dealing with their daughter who locked herself inside the bathroom on her wedding day… all set in the New York Plaza Hotel.
Each act will have an entirely different cast with a different director. This means that rehearsals for each act will only be about one hour twice a week, depending upon each cast and director's schedule. If you are someone on a tight schedule, then this is the show for you!

Director: Sandy Williams
Karen Nash- Late forty year old and fine with it. A pleasant and affable woman, Karen has allowed herself to look middle aged because she knows she is middle aged. She is witty, and down to earth.
