The Music Man
Directed by Candice Dickinson at HART theater in Waynesville, NC
Rehearsals begin in late May 2020 with performances in July 2020
HARTS ANNUAL AUDITIONS ARE HELD IN FEBRUARY FOR THE SEASON.
2020 Season Auditions are Sunday Feb. 9 and Monday February 10 at 6:30.
Directors for each of the season’s productions will be casting all principal roles. Additional auditions for large cast shows may also be held later at the discretion of the director.
COMMUNITY THEATER ACTORS-
HART is fundamentally a volunteer based community theater and preference is given to actors in this category and actors are considered for all roles –
Actors auditioning for musical roles should bring sheet music. An accompanist will be provided.
Actors auditioning for non-musical roles- Will be asked by each director to read from the script of the show being auditioned. Community Theater Actors are not expected to have prepared material.
SEMI-PROFESSIONAL ACTORS –
Semi Professional Actors must have had training (a university degree in theater or significant class work) and professional experience on stage at other theaters besides HART or be enrolled in the professional theater program at Western Carolina University.
Actors must have contrasting monologues, and multiple songs prepared with sheet music, a professional resume and a professional head shot, not taken by HART.
These are the standard items any professional or semi-professional actor who regularly auditions for professional companies would have on hand. Compensation for actors in this category is minimal, but intended to recognize the actors experience and training and for WCU students to qualify their casting as a “professional role” for their resume.
Directors are given a nominal budget for compensation, and the more actors cast from this category in a production the smaller the amount available.
Generally the amount paid is figured at between $15 and $25 per performance
