This is an open audition for both amateur and professional actors and will be held on 10/3 & 4 from 7:00 to 9:30 pm at TheatreWorks, 5 Brookside Ave. (next to the CVS). Actors do not have to be the ages listed but must be able to believably play within the ranges specified. Auditions will consist of reading from the script. Character breakdowns​ are available​ and auditions sides will be available at http://theatreworks.us/actors.  Note that a British or upper-class affectation is requested for the audition. Those coming to audition should prepare 16-32 bars of a song that shows your range and acting ability. An accompanist will be provided. Non-singing roles need not prepare a vocal audition.

In the small town of Chamberlain, Maine, Carrie White is a misfit. At school, she's an outcast who's bullied by the popular crowd, and virtually invisible to everyone else. At home, she's at the mercy of her loving but cruelly over-protective mother. But Carrie's just discovered she's got a special power, and if pushed too far, she's not afraid to use it… Performances of Carrie the Musical will be held January 20 through 22. Tickets are $18 for adults, $16 for students. Rehearsals are held from 3:30 to 6:00 p.m. on Mondays and Wednesdays during the production season. Attendance is required the entire week during tech week. Tuition for the classes and production is $385 per student, due after the casting announcement, some scholarships are available. A $20 audition fee is applied to the tuition of those that are cast. The audition fee and completed emergency form must accompany audition candidates, available at www.companytheatre.com/emergencyform.pdf.

ACT was founded in 1987 by Zoe Bradford, Michael Joseph and Jordie Saucerman, with a mission to discover the creative spirit in each child in an enjoyable and challenging atmosphere and to build self-confidence through the experience of the arts.
