Four County Players invites you to attend AUDITIONS for the first installment of our MUSIC UNDER THE STARS outdoor concert series:

BEGINNING TO SEE THE LIGHT: A Four County Players Cabaret
Directed by Ken Wayne
Music Direction by Kristin Baltes

AUDITIONS: Video audition submissions accepted through April 23 (details below)
REHEARSALS: Rehearsals begin April 26 (virtually); exact schedule TBD based on cast availability
PERFORMANCE: Friday, June 11 at 8PM (Rain date: Sunday, June 13 at 8PM) in the Barboursville picnic shelter (directly across from the Barboursville post office in the Four County Players parking lot)

ABOUT THE SHOW:
It has been over a year since we’ve had live theater in Barboursville, but we’re beginning to see the light! As the first show of our new MUSIC UNDER THE STARS outdoor performance series, we will be presenting an evening of upbeat musical theater songs of hope and inspiration.

A NOTE FROM THE DIRECTOR:
Thank you for your interest in auditioning for BEGINNING TO SEE THE LIGHT. We are excited to see live theater returning and are looking for strong musicians with strong voices to help us make that a reality. When choosing your audition piece, give a thought to what makes you happy or what keeps you going. As a director, I’m drawn to honest performances that come from the heart, so show me the joy, hope, or love within you that refuses to let your spirit be kept down. Before or after your performance, please share a brief story or sentiment about why you chose your song.

Director Ken Wayne and music director Kristin Baltes are looking for a diverse cast of 6 – 10 excellent singers of any race or gender to sing their hearts out. Singers must be 17 or older to audition. Here’s how the process will work: after songs are assigned, actors will work on them at home (directed virtually/socially distant by Ken & Kristin), after which we will schedule a few in-person rehearsals in the performance space. Strict COVID protcols will be followed, and a certified CCO (COVID Compliance Officer) will be present for every in-person rehearsal and performance.
