The Dance of the Grizzle

By Roy Hudson

Choreographed by Jessie Kisor

Some auditions have already been held and a second round of auditions will be held in August, but a submission will gain early access to information and might quicken our casting process. Even if you plan to come to the August auditions, PLEASE SUBMIT. We are seeking 10 adult actors. All positions paid. Housing is not provided by the company, but we will certainly help you find lodging while in Birmingham if you are from out of town. Casting has begun but is not complete. Please do not call the office about casting. Casting for Seussical will be complete and announced by August 31, 2015.

Young artists must be auditioned and cannot submit at this time.

You will be contacted in July regarding auditions in August. Young artists are not paid, but will receive professional credit for their appearance should they be cast.
