Press release from Haywood Arts Regional Theater:
The Haywood Arts Regional Theater will hold auditions for its 2019 main stage season on Sunday and Monday, February 10 & 11. Directors of all of the main stage productions will be present and all roles are open. HART is principally a community theater and preference is given to those auditioning as volunteers. Those auditioning as professionals are expected to have a prepared monologue, professional headshot and resume, professional experience and training. Community theater actors do not have to have pictures or resume’s and will simply be asked to cold read selected scenes. Those interested in being considered for musical roles, professionals and community theater actors, should bring sheet music for a song they have prepared. An accompanist will be on hand to play. Actors are asked to keep songs to a maximum of 32 bars. Each director may schedule callbacks as needed or follow-up auditions closer to their production. These will be posted at a later date. The shows being cast are “The Foreigner,” “Bridges of Madison County the musical,” “Stardust supper club review,” “Oliver,” “A Facility for Living,” “Mamma Mia,” “The Crucible,” and “Arsenic and Old Lace.” The HART Theatre is at 250 Pigeon St. in Waynesville. Anyone interested in working backstage is encouraged to attend and meet the directors.
