Syracuse Stage Holding Youth Auditions for Two Upcoming Productions
The Syracuse Stage artistic team is searching for talented local youth actors for performance opportunities in the upcoming productions of Thornton Wilder’s American classic “Our Town,” and the world premiere of “Tender Rain,” by Kyle Wright, Syracuse Stage’s resident playwright.
Auditioners should note that the production schedule for “Our Town” includes three student matinees in the morning, in addition to evening performances. The “Our Town” production runs March 29-April 16, while “Tender Rain” runs May 3-21.
Cast members must be available for rehearsals at Syracuse Stage, which begin March 7 for “Our Town,” and April 4 for “Tender Rain.” Rehearsals are not held on Mondays. Young actors will not be required to be at all rehearsals. Rehearsals for youth actors will generally be held on weekdays after 4 p.m. and during the daytime on weekends.
