Auditions, Van Wert Civic Theatre

Auditions set for first musical

In an exciting collaboration, VWCT and Amil Tellers – Encore Theatre are leveraging their resources to bring Motherhood, the Musical to both our theatre locations. This musical requires a cast of 4 women. This show shares the humorous and loving journey of Amy, a soon-to-be first-time mom; Barb, an overworked, underpaid, stressed-out mother of five; Brooke, a lawyer who works too much and barely sees her kids; and Tasha, a single mom struggling to balance work, family and a divorce. VWCT will present the musical on September 23, 24, 25, 26, 30, October 1, 2, and 3 while Encore performances are scheduled for October 8, 9, 10, 15, 16, and 17.  Director Jerry Zimmerman and Music Director Dee Fisher intend to use the same actresses for all 14 performances but will consider double casting to accommodate performance conflicts.

PLEASE NOTE AUDITION LOCATIONS. Auditions will be held at 2 p.m. on Sunday, August 1 at Encore Theatre located at 991 North Shore Dr, Lima and at 7 p.m. on Monday, August 2 at VWCT, 118 S Race Street, Van Wert.   Those auditioning should prepare a short song that demonstrates their range.  Be ready to share any conflicts with performances or rehearsal times. A detailed rehearsal schedule will be created once the show is cast.  Rehearsals will alternate between the two theatre locations.
