Auditions  for "Animal Crackers" will be at the theatre auditorium on Friday Feb. 17th at 7pm & Saturday Feb. 18th at 2pm. Full cast read through is scheduled for Monday Feb. 20th, with formal rehearsals to begin Thursday, Mar. 9th. (It's the director's intention that the cast will use the time window between the read through and the start of rehearsals to get started on line memorization)

For auditions, please come prepared to sing a cappella (approx. 45 seconds or so) any show tune or pop song you're comfortable performing in front of an audience.  A dance audition will follow so please dress for movement. We'll conclude with various cold readings from the script.

Casting requirements: Eight Males / Seven Females all with STRONG speaking & singing voices (the director's intent is to stage the show without body mics, the performances will utilize pre-recorded backing tracks) some dance skills & good comedic timing is a huge plus since the show is a dialogue heavy, slapstick farce. Most importantly, the willingness to have FUN while working together as a team to put together the best production possible!
