ABOUT AUDITIONS: Prepare 16 bars of a song that best shows off your singing voice. We will provide a piano accompanist and a CD player. You may sing acapella, but that won't demonstrate how you are able to follow pitch on the piano or CD. There will also be a movement (dance) audition where you will be taught a brief dance routine. Some auditioners may be asked to perform cold readings from the script with other actors. You can download and fill out the PDF Audition Form (see under Documents on the top menu) or get a form from a stage manager when you arrive. You should also review "Information about musical", which is also located under Documents.

The Dining Room is a play by the American playwright A. R. Gurney. Performanes are Thursday-Saturday, November 5-7, at 8 p.m., plus a Sunday matinee on November 8 at 2 p.m.
General admission tickets are $8 in advance and $10 at the door. All performances will be in the Temple High School Auditorium. Tickets will be available from members of the cast and production staff. Online ticket sales at SeatYourself.biz.
The play is set in the dining room of a typical well-to-do household, the place where the family assembled daily for breakfast and dinner and for any and all special occasions. The action is a mosaic of interrelated scenes — some funny, some touching — which, taken together, create an in-depth portrait of a vanishing species.
The actors change roles, personalities and ages with virtuoso skill as they portray a wide variety of characters, from little boys to stern grandfathers, and from giggling teenage girls to Irish housemaids. Each vignette introduces a new set of people and events. Dovetailing swiftly and smoothly, the varied scenes coalesce, ultimately, into a theatrical experience of exceptional range, compassionate humor and abundant humanity.
AUDITIONS will be Thursday, October 8, from 4:15 to 6:30.
