Racine Theatre Guild: Don’t Hug Me and Miracle on 34th Street
The Racine Theatre Guild will hold auditions for all roles in the musical comedy Don’t Hug Me on Oct. 16 and 17 by appointment.
Set in Bunyan Bay, Minnesota, the musical follows a bar owner who wants to leave the harsh Minnesota winters for warmer pastures in Florida, his wife who wants to stay, a waitress pursuing her singing career and her fiance who wants her to stay put. A slick karaoke salesman arrives on the scene and shakes things up.
Those who wish to audition must make an appointment for a specific time slot on Oct. 16 or 17.
The play follows the beloved 1947 film, opening on the day of the Macey’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, when Doris Walker hires Chris Kringle to play Santa, who claims to be the real deal.
To book an appointment or get more information call 262-633-4218.
Boulevard Theatre’s “Dramatic License” workshop will take place Friday, Oct. 8 at 8 p.m., Saturday Oct. 9 at 8 p.m., and Sunday, Oct. 10 at 2:30. This workshop provides actors with the opportunity to showcase their craft in a real-world setting, performing prepared monologues in front of a full house and guest actor judges. Some will be cut and others continue on to the evening and those who make it will perform cold readings from surprise scripts. Judges and audience give feedback, and the determined winner will receive prizes.
If interested, call the Boulevard Theatre’s voicemail at 414-744-5757 and leave your contact information. Some may be called in to audition, however only 18 actors will be used. There is a non-refundable $20 registration fee for actors wishing to participate.
