Auditions will take place at the BRT Rehearsal Studio, 201 Cedar St., Bristol. Anyone auditioning will be asked to sing a short selection from his or her favorite song.
To schedule an audition, email David Abers at firstname.lastname@example.org with “The Christians” in the subject line.
“This is a great opportunity for our entire community to participate actively in the work that goes on at BRT,” said Susan D. Atkinson, who will be directing the community ensemble for the production. “We’re looking to audition anyone who has ever watched a show and thought, ‘that looks like fun!,’ anyone who wanted to act in high school but was too busy with sports, anyone that sings in a church choir, or anyone who loves watching theatre but has never been onstage.”
The Christians introduces us to Pastor Paul, a preacher about to deliver a sermon that will shake the foundation of his congregation’s beliefs. The shocking revelation of his sermon has powerful consequences.
Previews for The Christians begin Tuesday, April 30, with opening night on Thursday, May 2. Performances run Wednesday through Sunday with a single Tuesday preview until May 19. More information can be found at brtstage.org
