An Auditions Trifecta, Sylvia’s a Hit and The Road to Mecca is Up Next!

Well, the 2015-2016 Season is definitely kicking into high gear with not one, not two, but THREE sets of auditions over the next three weeks! Now’s your chance to show your stuff onstage at the Little Theatre in three great shows coming up this fall. First up: director Suzy Newman is looking for seven very talented and funny actors for The Foreigner with auditions this Sunday, August 30, from 4:30-7:30 pm. Next weekend, Sunday, September 6 at 4:30 pm, director Gregg Wolff needs a talented cast of nine for Max Frisch’s classic dark comedy, The Arsonists. And finally, believe it or not, the holidays are on their way and with them comes our annual Holiday Show! Auditions for A Christmas Story will take place on Monday, September 14 at 5 pm. Check out all the details on our Auditions Page and we hope to see you onstage at the Little Theatre very soon!
