Seussical, directed by Becca Guilderson, will require an ensemble cast. Anyone who wishes to participate in this play must audition. Roles will be given out as available, and the ensemble roles will be given to anyone who wishes to participate.

No experience necessary.  Quick As A Wink prides itself on taking actors of all skill levels, from first timers to experienced actors, and teaching skills required to perform for a live audience.  Our mission includes the education of community members in theatre and performing arts!

Callbacks will take place on February 10 from 12-2 p.m.

What is Expected: Please plan to attend the entire audition time on your evening of choice. Those interested in a speaking role will be asked to perform readings with other auditioners. Monologue not required, but there will be cold readings available. All those auditioning should prepare a 30-second excerpt from a pop song or a musical theatre number. This should be prepared a capella.
