We have exciting news...Bachelorette is cast, and we couldn't be more excited to share with you who will be joining this awesome show!
As some of you may know, though this is our second production, this is our first time holding auditions. We were lucky enough with All New People to collaboratively put our cast together with friends and old theatre colleagues, and never had to seek other actors to fill the roles. This was great for our first show, but we realised we really missed an opportunity to meet new people, see other local talent, and expand our family!
We were completely shocked and overwhelmed by the response to our casting call - the number of people in trying out for the show was incredibly humbling. We packed in two full days of auditions and saw tons of talent. We also developed a new appreciation for casting - how are you possibly supposed to choose between so many amazing actors?? We knew we couldn't do it alone, so we were lucky enough to enlist some help for both days. The amazing Director and Actress, Jenn Suratos, joined us for our first day of auditions and again for callbacks. As well, we had Ryan Nunez of Play on Words Productions with us for our second day of auditions. I'm not sure what we would have done without their additional feedback, direction and overall calming presence!
At callbacks, we got to experience the nice side of auditions: instead of feeling the competitive nature of trying to win a role, every time I entered the hallway to call in a new actor, I saw a room full of supportive artists working together on their scenes, getting to know one another, and generally being positive with one another. It was so great! And then made our job even harder.
We wanted to say THANK YOU again to everyone who came out to audition for us, especially those of you who spent so much of your day with us at callbacks. We had a blast watching your work and seeing the variety in what each of you brought to each character.
We're happy to say that we have a STELLAR cast now...but just wait, we'll be announcing who they are very soon!
