Steamboat Players seek actors, singers to audition

The Steamboat Players are looking for actors and singers ages 10 and older to audition for roles in the Aug. 12 to 14 production of “Seussical,” a musical that weaves Dr. Seuss characters into one story.

Acting auditions are from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. today, and music auditions are from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. Monday. All auditions will take place at the Depot Art Center on 13th Street.

Music auditions require people to bring an up-tempo song with sheet music. During their auditions, actors will read from the “Seussical” script. Those who audition need to attend both nights, but not for the entire time.

For more information, or if those times don’t work for you, call the musical’s artistic director Michael Brumbaugh at 870-4533.
