Flat Rock Playhouse and Studio 52 seek a small, diverse company of local actors ages 12 - 19 to perform with a professional company in the children's musical, ROOTABAGA EXPRESS!, presented in the summer of 2022 at the Carl Sandburg Home National Historic Site. Rehearsals begin May 16 and performances run every Thursday and Saturday morning between June 16 and August 13. All auditioning actors must have reliable transportation to and from all rehearsals and performances and local housing. All auditioning actors must be fully-vaccinated with proof of vaccination presented at the time of the audition.

 

Auditions will be held by appointment only on Saturday, April 9, between 10AM - 12PM at the Studio 52 building located at 1855 Little River Rd, Flat Rock, NC 28731.

An actor’s full audition package should not exceed 3 minutes in length. 

 

Actors should bring:

  • A headshot or recent photo (if you have it).
