All who are auditioning might want to have a working knowledge of the plays, but it is not required. Roles will be filled by individuals of good humor and pleasant demeanor, who are eager to bring great theater to the Western North Carolina community.
Montford Park Players is proud of their history of inviting members of the community into their fold. Many of the regulars of Montford’s stage, front and back, are those who, at one time, sought to learn new skills, create art and find a place to feel like they belong and where they can make a difference. This call continues that tradition.

All roles will be unpaid and anyone wishing to audition should come to the Hazel Robinson Amphitheatre at 92 Gay St. in the Montford District of Asheville on Saturday, March 25th between 12 and 4pm, or on Monday, March 27th or Tuesday, March 28th between 6 and 9pm.
