Kensington Arts Theatre will hold additional auditions for Parade this Saturday, August 17, at the Kensington Town Hall / Armory, from 11:30 AM to 1:00 PM. All roles are open.
Anyone coming to these auditions should be prepared to remain for callbacks, which will take place immediately following the regular auditions.
It sounds like a cliché, but there are truly no small roles in this show. With the exception of the performers depicting Leo Frank, Lucille Frank, and Mary Phagan, each performer will play multiple roles. Each role offers vocal and acting challenges, and each character propels the story to its grim conclusion.
