WHITEFIELD, NH – April 24, 2023—Weathervane Theatre is thrilled to hold local auditions for its upcoming 58th season (running June 9 – October 14, 2023) for the productions of North Country Shakes: The Bard on Broadway, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Mamma Mia!, and Guys and Dolls.

Auditions will take place at Weathervane Theatre’s rehearsal space, The Grange, located at 29 Maple Street in Whitefield, NH. All ages welcome. Auditionees should be prepared to present a Shakespeare monologue (does not need to be memorized) and a brief (30-60 seconds) song selection. Auditionees may prepare a Shakespeare monologue of their choice or can select one from Weathervane’s website to perform. Please note that there will not be an accompanist provided at this audition so auditionees are to provide their own accompaniment track or sing a capella. Weathervane will provide amplification. Auditionees may prepare a song of their own choice or select one from Weathervane’s website. Please note that Weathervane will work with school schedules (ie: children cast in Midsummer are not required to perform in weekday matinees).
