Tyler Civic Theater Center has modified plans for Breakfast at Tiffany's auditions by Facebook Messenger video chat. Details follow, but we are proceeding with cautious optimism for our final season production.
Meanwhile, Just So Stories is waiting in the wings with set pieces in place and costumes hanging in the dressing rooms. Obviously, no one knows with the next days or weeks will look like, but we will be prepared to go when it is safe to do so - that's what theater people do!
If you plan to audition and are Facebook friends with DeAnna Hargrove, simply send her a FB private message to be scheduled Monday evening between 5:30 and 8 p.m. and anytime between 10 a.m. and 8 p.m. on Tuesday. If you are not yet friends, now's the time to make that request... and don't forget to send a message for your appointment time. Sides will be available Monday afternoon for cold readings, but prepared monologues are also welcomed. The following Monday and Tuesday we plan to continue the process for optimum casting.
Please understand that there is no guarantee that circumstances will allow this production to take place in May as scheduled, but we will be prepared to rehearse beginning in April if the situation improves dramatically (pun intended). Worst case scenario, we have fun with auditions and stay focused on returning to normalcy... which is what we all hope and pray to see in the very near future!
As always, TCTC thrives because of your support and participation. We look forward to some amazing auditions, so blow up DeAnna's Facebook Messenger with those requests for your appointment!
