Little Women Callbacks

Thursday, December 2. 3:30-5:30pm Thank you so much to all who auditioned for Little Women. There was a tremendous amount of talent displayed, which made our job very hard. Since this is a small-cast show, our callback decisions reflect the strongest possibilities for the tight-knit ensemble we’d like to create for this production.  The final cast list will be posted by the end of the week, and those who are not called back may be included in the final cast list, and those who are called back may be cast in a different role than what you are called back for. If you are not cast and would like to reach out to Jessie and/or Hannah for feedback on your audition, you are encouraged to do so. The Callback is broken into three sections: Acting 3:30-4:15, Music 4:15-5:00, and Dance 5:00-5:30pm. Acting sides and music cuts for callbacks will be available in the Student Lounge tomorrow/Wednesday by late afternoon.

Standardized Patient Training Courses

Happy Tuesday! As you go through the registration process, I welcome you to consider becoming a standardized patient. This is a fantastic opportunity for you to learn how to work with pre-professionals in the medical field using your acting skills. It’s a great way to make money when you’re in-between gigs after college. Many teaching hospitals and training institutions hire standardized patients. Additionally, we are the only college/university in North America who offers a minor in standardized patient training. SP skills training is happening next semester on Mondays and Wednesdays. Please consider signing up. Only pre-requisite is Acting I. Thanks! Have a great day! Fran

An email address is listed here for each panelist. The email addresses are visible only if you are logged in to this callboard. Panelists Brady Piper Lynch studied Musical Theatre at Plymouth State (class of ’11) before moving to New York City.   After only two months, she booked a 10-month contract on Disney Cruise Lines, as well as her first off-Broadway show.   Brady played Belle in a new production of A Christmas Carol entitled Three Ghosts (available on Spotify), and then moved to Toronto to rehearse.  In the 2½ month rehearsal process, she learned 5 shows (including The Golden Mickey’s, Toy Story, and Disney Dreams) and understudied three other roles besides her own.  Brady sailed 7 and 14 day cruises to Alaska, Hawaii, Western Mexico, and the Read More
