Thank you to all who auditioned! We still need some men and women for GHOST and some men for SISTER ACT. If you know someone who may be interested, please let me know. If we didn’t get you onstage this time, we have two more sets of auditions this season! Come back, and we will get you involved soon!

Please notify me at thissideofoz@triad.rr.com by 5 PM Wednesday, April 12, as to whether you accept or decline you role(s). If I haven’t heard from you, I will assume you decline it/them and will proceed as such.

If you were new to TA and didn’t make it this time, believe me:  it’s not a matter of if….only when…we will get you onstage! Thanks again!

HEATHERS – Performances are August 18-27, 2017, with potential extension likely. Rehearsals begin approx. July 5.

Note: There was so much interest and SO much talent for HEATHERS, this was a very difficult decision. I owe the auditionees for this show an apology. Upon reviewing the show again for auditions, I was reminded how “adult” the subject matter is. To that end, I have capped the casting age at a minimum of 17, and I should have notated that prior to the auditions. I am sorry I failed to note that. I had forgotten the graphic nature of the show, frankly. So, for you talented young people that auditioned for this show that are under 17, PLEASE come back and audition for more shows. On the other hand, I’m glad I DID fail to mention the age requirement earlier; if I had, I wouldn’t have met all of you terrific young actors! You make me feel good about the future of theatre! If this show wasn’t so mature, I would use each one of you. Also, for those that have been cast in HEATHERS at the age of 17, I will need for a parent or guardian to meet with me to sign a parental consent form prior to the first rehearsal. I am not able to let you perform in the show without it. Please be aware that JD, Ram, and Kurt all have to be in underwear at some point during the show, and Veronica is in her bra. Veronica and JD have a suggestive, simulated s*x scene. If any of this is an issue for those cast in these roles, please notify me now. Thank you! – Jamie
