HART to hold 2014 season auditions

There’s an open call for actors to audition for “To Kill A Mockingbird” Feb. 2-3 at the Haywood Arts Regional Theatre in Waynesville. Professional actors are asked to be there at 6 p.m., with community theater actors at 7 p.m.

This year HART is trying something new. The theater is giving actors a chance to audition for principal roles for the entire season at one time. The idea is to give actors interested in being considered for leading roles an early shot at casting and give directors more time to assemble a cast. This is the only scheduled audition for “To Kill A Mockingbird,” the first show on the season, which will cast all roles. Anyone interested in being a part of that show in any role should attend one of the two nights or contact the director Wanda Taylor to make special arrangements for another time.

HART’s 2014 season includes “To Kill A Mockingbird,” opening April 25; “Breaking Up Is Hard To Do,” opening May 23, with auditions March 23-24; “Grand Night For Singing,” opening June 20, with auditions April 27-28; “Hello Dolly,” opening July 11, with auditions May 4-5; “The Odd Couple,” opening Aug. 22, with auditions June 29-30; “Urinetown,” opening Sept. 26, with auditions July 27-28; “Macbeth,” opening Oct. 24, with auditions Aug. 17-18; “A Christmas Carol,” opening Dec. 11, with auditions Nov. 2-3.

    The woodcock — secretive, rotund and acrobatic While walking stream banks or low-lying wetlands, you have perhaps had the memorable experience of flushing a woodcock — that secretive, rotund, popeyed, little bird with an exceedingly long down-pointing bill that explodes from underfoot and zigzags away on whistling wings and just barely managing…
