GRCT TRAVELING TROUPE AUDITIONS:

AWESOME ALLIE, FIRST KID ASTRONAUT

The Grand Rapids Civic Theatre Traveling Troupe is an outreach program that brings theatre to local elementary schools free of charge. Participation is by audition, and actors volunteer their time to travel one morning a week to perform on site at local elementary schools. Free community performances are also held at GRCT in March and as part of the Festival of the Arts in June. The Traveling Troupe presents a new show every year.

PROCESS
Open auditions Sunday, January 10th from 4pm to 7pm. Auditionees need to bring 16-32 bars of prepared sheet music (Broadway style) and be prepared to learn a short group dance audition, as well as read from the script. Perusal scripts can be checked out with a $10 deposit at the Civic Theatre Box Office M-F 9am-5pm.

Callbacks (if necessary) Monday, Jan. 11th at 7pm.
