Calling all actors!!
September will be a busy month at the Ouachita Little Theatre. Rehearsals begin on Sept. 9, for October’s Bell, Book, and Candle. But there are two more shows that will round out the year at OLT.
On Thursday, September 4, from 7 p.m. – 9 p.m. and Saturday, September 6, from 9 a.m. – 12 p.m., auditions will be held for the November production of The Glass Menagerie, directed by Brad Storey.
Auditions for Little Women, OLT’s December Christmas play, will be held at the theater on Saturday, September 20, 9 a.m.- 12 p.m., and Monday, September 22, 6 p.m. – 8 p.m. These auditions may still be several weeks away, but you can start preparing now to win your favorite role.
Below is a list of the roles which are being cast for Little Women. Audition scenes for these various roles, which should be memorized before auditions, may be picked up at the Polk County Library, or you may contact Marilyn Brown at firstname.lastname@example.org and request that a particular audition scene be emailed to you.
