By on in Audition announcement, Coming Events, Theatre |

September 12, 7pm – 9pm & September 15, 2pm – 4pm at the HCCAC!  5425 Center Street Hilliard, Ohio 43026 “Try To Remember” a time when this romantic charmer wasn’t enchanting audiences around the world. The Fantasticks is the longest-running musical in the world and with good reason: at the heart of its breathtaking poetry and subtle theatrical sophistication is a purity and simplicity that transcends cultural barriers. The result is a timeless fable of love that manages to be nostalgic and universal at the same time.The Fantasticks is a funny and romantic musical about a boy, a girl, and their two fathers who try to keep them apart.

By on in Audition announcement, Coming Events, Community, Theatre |

When: August 17 10m-12pm & August 18 2pm – 4pm Where: Hilliard Arts Council – HCCAC 5425 Center St, Hilliard, OH 43026 Read the following for an overview and click here for audition paperwork and calendar. Though the characters may be familiar, each of your favorite storybook fables is uproariously derailed in this adaptation of Jon Scieszka and Lane Smith’s quintessential children’s book of fractured fairy tales. Everything from “Chicken Little” to “The Gingerbread Man” gets a complete makeover. Fun music and witty narration accompany the likes of ineloquent giants, sassy barnyard animals, colossal cow pies, and enough stinky cheese to go around. Audition Expectations: I will be moving 5 – 10 auditioners into the PAC at any one time and have them read a small scene from the script so I can get a clearer idea of the types of characters best suit each actor. The reading will be a cold reading this time, which is why I do not have any attached scenes. After I excuse each group of auditioners, they are excused to leave. The script is written with the intent of having 7 performers (4 Male, 3 Female) playing multiple roles. However, I plan to...
