"Try to Remember" auditions coming up on July 11 and 12 as Red Curtain launches its production of the longest-running musical in American history. This beloved musical allegory is the first show in Red Curtain's 2017-2018 season.
Written by Tom Jones and Harvey Schmidt and directed by Kent Johnson, "The Fantasticks" takes a magical look at first love, and the pains of growing and earning that love.
To reserve an audition slot, please email your headshot and resume to firstname.lastname@example.org. Actors should bring sheet music for a 16-bar song selection, and be prepared for cold readings from the script, as well as movement/dance. Auditions and performances will be held at the Red Curtain Arts Center at 9315 State Ave, Suite J in Marysville. Performances are weekends, Sept 8-Sept 24.
Red Curtain is an equal-opportunity arts organization and is open to non-traditional casting for all of our shows. We encourage gender-blind and color-conscious casting from all of our directors.
