Come get spooky with us! The River’s Edge Players are back with The Addams Family musical October 25-27, just in time for Halloween. We’re looking for a ghoulish cast of characters to bring the show to death… ahem, life.
Auditions will be held at First Church in Marlborough:
Sunday, August 11, 3:00pm-7:00pm
Monday, August 12, 7:00pm-10:00pm
Callbacks, if needed, will be held on Tuesday, August 13, 7:00pm-10:00pm.
Auditioners are asked to prepare a song in the style of the show. Please provide your own sheet music for our accompanist. Please also be prepared for a brief movement audition. Headshots and resumes are welcome but not required; an audition form will also be provided online shortly and in hard copy at the audition.
Please sign up for a one-hour audition slot, for individual musical auditions and cold readings from the script with a group.
