  • Need one “GREETER” per show to stand at front door and greet people. Separate the people into the right lines — “will call tickets” and “purchase tickets at the door”. This will help make the lines move faster and also keep down the number of folks crowding into the lobby.

  • Need one “WILL-CALL TICKETS” person per show to sit at table in lobby and look up alphabetically filed envelopes containing tickets that were pre-ordered. Give the tickets to the patron and deal with any questions which arise. Direct them to the door to the ticket taker.
  • Need two “SELL TICKETS AT DOOR” people to sit at table in lobby and sell tickets to folks who come to purchase tickets that night. This involves pre-learning the computer ticketing system!!! It also will involve money handling and resolution.

We will train you and provide everything needed to do your job – just bring your enthusiasm!

Audition and Tech Information

First, we are doing the JOSEPH ROBINETTE version of the play.  On YouTube, there are several others--but they are not availabe in the United States for licensing.  This video link provides a look at one production of the script we are doing, though the blocking and choreography will vary in ours.  It gives you an idea.

Here is a preliminary chart of characters and what scenes they are in.  Remember, most anyone not in a main role will be busy playing multiple parts.

Next, DOWNLOAD AUDITION INFO handout + AUDITION FORM IF AUDITIONING FOR ACTING ROLE.  DOWNLOAD Audition Info Handout AND TECH CREW APPLICATION IF INTERVIEWING FOR A TECHNICAL CREW ROLE.
