ABOUT THE SHOW:

Set in Damon Runyon’s mythical New York City, Guys and Dolls is an oddball romantic comedy. Gambler, Nathan Detroit, tries to find the cash to set up the biggest craps game in town while the authorities breathe down his neck; meanwhile, his girlfriend and nightclub performer, Adelaide, laments that they’ve been engaged for fourteen years. Nathan turns to fellow gambler, Sky Masterson, for the dough, and Sky ends up chasing the straight-laced missionary, Sarah Brown, as a result. Guys and Dolls takes us from the heart of Times Square to the cafes of Havana, Cuba, and even into the sewers of New York City, but eventually everyone ends up right where they belong.

Performances will be held at the Wigwam Theater (10190 Blacklick-Eastern Road Northwest, Pickerington, OH 43147) from July 8 through July 17.

The production will be directed by Chris Gallaugher.

PCT is excited to announce audition information for its Fall 2022 production of The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee!

ABOUT THE SHOW:
An eclectic group of six mid-pubescents vie for the spelling championship of a lifetime. While candidly disclosing hilarious and touching stories from their home lives, the tweens spell their way through a series of (potentially made-up) words, hoping never to hear the soul-crushing, pout-inducing, life un-affirming “ding” of the bell that signals a spelling mistake. Six spellers enter; one speller leaves! At least the losers get a juice box.

Auditions will be held at Epiphany Lutheran Church, 268 Hill Road North, Pickerington 43147
Character descriptions are available HERE and the audition FAQ sheet is available HERE.

Please choose one of the following audition dates:
Friday, July 22 7:00pm – 10:00pm
Saturday, July 23 10:00a.m. – 2:00p.m.
** Callbacks will be held Sunday July 24 2pm – 5pm if necessary **

We are in need of actors and actresses age 16+.

The audition process:
You will be asked to fill out an audition form. You may also click HERE to download and complete your audition form ahead of time to bring with you. You may attach a resume and picture if you wish (it is not required). Please bring a calendar that includes conflicts.
You will have your picture taken and a number will be assigned to you.

1) Be prepared to sing part of a song of your choice (no more than a minute long). A piano is available for use and an accompanist will be provided (don’t forget your sheet music). Acapella / karaoke singing to CD or MP3 is allowed. If we raise our hand to stop you it means we have heard enough – it is NOT an indication of whether we liked you. Try to choose a song appropriate for the show (Broadway musical). Do not sing a song from The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee!

2) We will have a simple dance audition (performed in small groups). For chorus roles we only need to see basic movement.

3) If seeking a speaking role, please be prepared to stay for cold readings from the script

Rehearsals:
Fridays 7pm – 9:30pm (first one is July 29th), Saturdays 10am -2pm, Sundays 2pm -5pm.

Rehearsals are set so that you only need to be there when you are needed. There may be some weekday evening rehearsals as we move closer to the production.

Rehearsals are at Epiphany Church until we move into the theater. ALL cast members MUST attend the first rehearsal to receive your materials, take costume measurements, and complete any paperwork.

Tech Week (Sunday through Thursday before Opening Night) will include weeknight rehearsals.

The production will be directed by Adam Schroeder, assistant directed by Megan Gibson, and music directed by Pamela Villarreal.

Performance Dates at the Wigwam Theater:
