Judy Russell Presents and Theatre NorthWest are offering an opportunity for local performers to attend joint auditions.
“We have a very talented pool of local artists and whether they are full-time or part-time performers, we want to see them have the opportunity to do what they love in the community they live in,” Judy Russell, owner of Judy Russell Presents, said.
"By doing joint auditions we can see a large number of artists and we can save the artist from having to audition over and over again."
Russell is on the look out for rock opera and musical theatre artists of all ages and genders for upcoming 2020 productions while Theatre NorthWest is on the search for young women for their year-end musical production.
“We have all worked together behind the scenes for so long, sharing props, costumes, supplies and expertise that we thought it was high time we talked about it in public,” Marnie Hamagami, executive director of Theatre NorthWest, said.
Auditions will be held at Enchainement Dance Centre, 3540 Opie Crescent, on Friday, March 6 from 6 to 9 p.m., again at Enchainement on Saturday, March 7 from 2 to 6 p.m. and at the Prince George Playhouse Sunday, March 8 from 1 to 5 p.m.
Those performers interested in auditioning should bring a head shot and resume, prepare 16 bars of an appropriate song and be prepared to move and possibly do a reading.
To request an audition time, send an email to JRPandTNWauditions2020@gmail.com and be sure to include the age of the person auditioning.
