RCP Announces Auditions for Fall 2016 Show!
The River City Players are calling all actors with or without experience. We will hold auditions for their fall comedy, A COMEDY OF TENORS by KEN LUDWIG on Wednesday, September 7th and Thursday, September 8th, 2016. Auditions will be held at the Trails Regional Library in their meeting room downstairs. Please enter through the backdoor for auditions. The Library is located at 1008 Main Street, Lexington, MO 64067. Auditions will be held from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. NOTE: Actors and actresses do not need to be able to sing to audition. Singing is not required in the performance of the show.
The cast calls for 4 men and 3 women of various ages (21 years and over). The audition process is informal. It will consist of cold readings from the script. Actors auditioning may read for one or more parts. RCP welcomes all to audition with or without previous theater experience. A "read only" cutting of the script may be viewed on the Samuel French, Inc. website for those would like more information about the show. For more details, check our RCP AUDITIONS Page.
