Auditions for cast and interviews for crew positions for the 40th season of William Carey University’s Carey Dinner Theatre (CDT) will be held at 10 a.m. on Saturday, March 21 in the Joe and Virginia Tatum Theatre on the Hattiesburg campus.
CDT presents two musicals in June and July. Each member of the company is paid. The financial package includes salary, tips from serving during dinner and housing.
Those auditioning as performers will present a one-minute monologue from a modern prose play (no dialect), a one-minute vocal selection from a Broadway musical and will participate in a dance audition. An accompanist will be available, but will not transpose. Taped accompaniment may be used. Each person who auditions should bring comfortable clothes for the dance audition.
Audition requirements for pianists include a prepared two-minute selection from a Broadway musical. Sight reading will be required.
Interviews will be held for technicians, costume assistants, box office managers and office assistants. Each person will complete an application and an interview with CDT staff. Portfolios are invited. Performers may also apply for staff positions.
Each applicant should bring a head shot to the audition/interview. Contracts are offered only to those who have graduated from high school by May 25, 2015. The company commitment is May 25 through July 20.
