Panto is a community production made possible by volunteers; the actors are split into two casts that are divided by speaking roles and chorus members who mainly sing & dance. Rehearsals are 3 times a week but you should only be needed 2 times in a week depending on the schedule. Singing & Dancing is done Sunday’s 12-5pm and Scene work on Tuesday’s & Thursday’s 7-10pm.
A schedule is sent out well in advance explaining in detail who is needed on what days & at what times, you are expected to be at all rehearsals. This schedule MAY change at any time but we will give as much notice as possible!
Auditions will be held at the Wyman Memorial Church (513 Rue Main, Hudson) on August 23 & 24 and at the Shaar Community Centre (394 Main, Hudson) on August 25. These will be group auditions (approximately 15 participants per session). Everyone will be asked to sing a short chorus & verse of a song of their choice. We will then read through different scenes of the play so the director can see people in different characters.
Once you have submitted your form you will be contacted with your confirmed audition time.
