Production Auditions


ECU/Loessin Playhouse Auditions

Auditions for Hands on a Hardbody and Really Rosie will be December 3rd through the 5th. Auditions for both shows will be held together, callbacks will be separate. Please prepare no more than 32-bars of a 1970s through 90s rock pop, country rock, or R&B song in the style of the show and/or character you feel best suited for (no musical theatre or songs from the shows).

 

Sign-up sheets will be posted on the Messick Callboard at the beginning of November. Scripts, sides, and character breakdowns will be in the workroom. An announcement will be sent out when these are available.

 

All those currently in BFA performance programs MUST audition.  (Freshmen and BFA intendeds are strongly encouraged to audition).  

All further announcements dealing with Hands on a Hardbody will come for the stage manager, Erin Mackey. Please direct questions to her specifically pertaining to HOH. All Really Rosie information will come from myself, William K. Brooks, until further notice.
