Here’s an announcement from Karen Helenthal, one of the people behind Suddenly Seniors the Musical, a new show to open at the Plaza Theatre in March:
We’re in the final phase of casting and I wonder if you can help us get the word out to Central Florida performers over 50 who may not have heard about the production or who may be out of the habit of auditioning and reluctant to respond to the call. We are quite certain that the talent is out there and our preference is to cast from the local area.
We have not made final decisions for the three lead roles. A final round of auditions will be held January 5, beginning at 6 PM. Interested performers should contact Karen Helenthal, firstname.lastname@example.org, directly to arrange an appointment to audition.
