WOW!  I can’t believe the level of talent that walked into Venture Theatre for the auditions for all the shows, but you actors for Seussical were amazing!  This includes everyone who wanted to be part of the project in the cast.  This, however, is only a partial cast list.  All those who are listed in smaller ensembles will be in a ton of stuff.  Those of you who worked with me on Guys and Dolls know that everyone makes a contribution to a musical that I direct.  So if you didn’t get the part you wanted, take heart, you will have a great time and will have much to do. 

This is gonna be a great production featuring some “wicked-good” talent.  I’m honored to have met you and I look forward to directing all of you.  Our first meeting will be this Saturday, May 22 @ 1pm down at Venture Theatre.  We will have a short organizational meeting (no more than an hour).  We’ll hand out CD’s and scripts, and we’ll begin to take measurements for our costume plot.  If you need info or if you can’t be there, call the theatre at 591-9535.

What an astounding group of actors auditioning for this classic show!  I wish we could have cast all of you, but there were almost 60 who auditioned.  To those who were not cast, keep looking for opportunities at the Venture Youth Conservatory.  You will get your shot.

Those who were cast, we will be meeting on Saturday at 4pm to hand out scripts and discuss scheduling.  It will be a brief meeting, and I hope everyone can come.  The meeting will be no more than an hour guaranteed.  

Nice job at auditions everyone.  It's gonna be a great show, and I look forward to this summers work.

Those who were cast.  I look forward to seeing you all soon.  I would like to have a read through this Tuesday night at 7pm at Venture.  Please bring any scripts that are still floating around out there to that meeting.  Thanks.  It's gonna be a great little show.
