Produced by LJ Woodard, Owner and Creative Director of the Performance Club, Summer Stock is by AUDITION ONLY! Auditions take place in the spring and we finalize casting by May. Due to the size of the theater space, our cast sizes are limited to 30 performers max. Our productions focus on entertaining young audiences and families! We are a for-profit business where our goal is to provide quality children's theater to the community that includes a positive theatrical experience to our entire cast at the historic Thalian Hall in Wilmington.
We prepare for each production with a two week intensive rehearsal process prior to tech week (usually 3-4 hrs/day). We ask parents to provide financial support thru participation fees (that are comparable to camp tuition) or equally selling ads for the program. Plus parents can also contribute as a sponsor where their business logo is featured on posters/banner and all media in lieu of participation fee! Either way, it's a win-win!
No youth performer will ever be denied a role based on financial participation because of our sponsors! And we are proud to generate a positive return to pay and attract a professional creative staff.
PRELIMINARY AUDITIONS ARE BY VIDEO FIRST!
DEADLINE TBD via email:
