Waynesville theatre to hold auditions for ‘Wonderettes’

The Haywood Arts Regional Theatre will hold auditions for its May production of the musical “The Marvelous Wonderettes” at 6:30 p.m., April 1 and 2.

The show has leading roles for four women, ranging in age from teens to 30, who will comprise a 1950’s rock ‘n roll girl group. The first act of the production takes place at a 1958 high school prom, and the second act is the 10th reunion. Each act features hit songs from the era.

Mark Jones will direct the production, which will run for three weeks beginning May 25. Actors auditioning as professionals should come with a headshot and resume as well as a prepared audition piece. Community theater actors should come with sheet music and a prepared song. All actors will be given the opportunity to read from the script. Anyone interested in working backstage on the production is also encouraged to come by during auditions to sign up.

The HART Theatre is located on Pigeon Street in Waynesville.
