In preparation for March auditions for Thor
nton Wilder’s Our Town, the NBYT Teen Company is holding a table reading and pre-audition workshops for anyone who many be interested in auditioning for the play—or even anyone not sure about auditioning or just wanting to read and learn more about the play.
Workshops will be held on Saturdays, January 23 and 30, from 10 AM to noon at NBYT’s space at the New Britain-Berlin YMCA at 50 High Street.
At the workshops, directors and actors will read the play, discuss the characters and themes, and talk about what will be needed to prepare for auditions in March. Attendance at the workshops, however, will not be required to audition. At auditions, the directors will be looking for a diverse cast of actors ages 13-18 with some roles possibly open to younger children.
These two workshop dates are FREE, but anyone attending can pre-order a copy of the play for $10 to have for the workshops, auditions, and rehearsals. Cast members who don’t order a copy of the play will be given one when rehearsals begin.
To register and/or reserve a copy of the play, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 860-515-8115.
