HART to hold ‘Welcome to Mitford’ auditions

Feb 13, 2013

The Haywood Arts Regional Theatre will hold auditions for the opening production of its 2013 season, “Welcome to Mitford,” at 6:30 p.m. Feb. 24-25.

The play is based on the series of novels by North Carolina writer Jan Karon and has nearly 20 major roles. The play is being directed by Wanda Taylor and will run weekends April 19 – May 5.

Rehearsals will generally be Monday-Thursday evenings, though they tend to be scheduled to adjust to individual conflicts. Anyone auditioning will be given scenes to read from the script. Actors auditioning as professionals will be expected to have a prepared monologue, a headshot and resume.

Anyone interested in working backstage on the production is also encouraged to come by during auditions to sign up. Auditions will be held on the main stage of the HART Theatre, 250 Pigeon St., in Waynesville.
