One production down, two to go!Our run of Bye Bye, Birdie at the Huron Playhouse opened the season with fantastic audiences and great reviews; the energy of the cast and crew definitely carried the crowd off their feet in love of Conrad Birdie! We played to a full house every night, and the enjoyment of the audience was tangible in their laughter and cheers at the antics of small-town, Sweet Apple citizens.
Finally! Updates from summer stock at the Huron Playhouse:
We are already approaching Week 4 here at Huron, and I haven’t had any time to write updates! So, on my last free Saturday evening of the season, I will give you the story, morning glory.
The Huron company and staff are absolutely wonderful! They are so kind and caring, and they show true dedication to the art of theater. The surrounding community is also amazingly supportive and friendly, as I have seen in my short time here.
It’s official! I just signed my contract with the Huron Playhouse, Ohio’s oldest summer theater. I will be joining Huron as a company member and an assistant choreographer. I can’t wait to begin rehearsals for the summer season and meet my fellow company members! From what I have heard, everyone seems to be encouraging, supportive, enthusiastic, and genuine. Sounds like a perfect combination for a successful summer!
The show schedule for this summer is as follows:
June 26-30: BYE BYE BIRDIE
July 3-7: THE FOX ON THE FAIRWAY
July 10-14: THE DROWSY CHAPERONE
July 17-21: GREATER TUNA
July 24-28: CAROUSEL
Well, I’ve just scheduled my first audition of the season at the Porthouse Theater. One down, three to go: the Pittsburgh CLO, StrawHat, and Disney. Many people may ask, “What the heck is ‘StrawHat?’” No, it’s not a country western festival. It’s a huge open call audition, featuring about a thousand non-equity actors all competing for jobs from dozens of theatrical companies. The idea is that, through working at one of these theatres, you would get your Equity union card. This is my first year auditioning for professional summer stock companies; I’m going in with a mindset of not necessarily expecting job offers, but learning from the audition experience so that I may improve my technique in the future. In other words, I’m not going to be crushed if I don’t get in with any of these companies, I’m fine with simply attending these auditions (though a job offer WOULD be absolutely wonderful and supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!) and networking along the way. Wish me luck! ;)
