Zoom Auditions: Greetings!

Zoom "Walk-in" Auditions from 7:30pm - 9:00pm, Tuesday, October 6

(If you already sent a video audition, need not attend unless invited.)

Stageworks Theatre will kick off the holiday season with a warm, supernatural holiday blast, Greetings! by Tom Dudzik.   

 

Andy has a sweet Catholic mother, a sour Catholic father and an intellectually disabled younger brother named Mickey. When he brings his Jewish atheist fiance home to meet the folks on Christmas Eve, his worst fears about family blow-ups are realized. But when Mickey, whose entire vocabulary has been limited to "oh boy" and "wow," suddenly spouts the word "Greetings!", the entire family's belief system is turned upside down. For it seems an ancient, wise and witty spirit who is set upon healing the family's wounds has borrowed Mickey's body! 

Health & Safety

All actors, production team, volunteers and staff at Stageworks Theatre are expected to abide with our Pandemic Health & Safety Guidelines. These protocols include mandatory mask wearing inside the Stageworks facility, social distancing, daily self health checks, rigid hygiene and sanitizing standards, strictly enforced Stay Home and Return protocols and heavily scrutinized adherence to a rehearsal “bubble.”  We may also require a negative COVID test during the production as conditions change. Out of respect for the health of others, please do not audition if you are not ready to adhere to strict health and safety protocols. Note: We are seating a maximum of 50% of the total available capacity in our theatre. Our audience is social-distanced and also required to abide with many of these same strict guidelines within our control.
