We are simply blown away by the numbers of incredibly talented folks that auditioned for MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS! Thank you for taking the time to prepare and share your talents with us. It was truly magnificent and inspiring!
If this was your first audition, we certainly hope to see you again! Everyone should be so very proud that you came to the audition. You all did so well and there were some extremely difficult choices to make. It was very hard to be brutal and nit-picky, as slight differences were all we had to go on.
If you are not in the cast, please watch out for future opportunities. For those who prefer plays, we will soon announce auditions for the romantic comedy “PRELUDE TO A KISS” in April. For the Musical Theatre folks, look for our upcoming auditions for “LA CAGE AUX FOLLES” in the spring. If you would like to be a part of our Stage Crew or help build and/or paint the world’s most famous train, please contact our Backstage Volunteer Coordinator, Annie Collins at [email protected].
The first rehearsal will be on Monday, January 29 at 7:30 PM. You will receive a script and parking pass, along with a volunteer packet of information at that time. Please come to the Circle Lobby (entrance nearest Frazier Avenue).
