Auditions are set for 6:30 p.m. Monday, Dec. 11, 2017, for the Community Theatre of Howell’s WCTH Radio Hour, a live stage re-creation of radio shows from the 1930s to 1950s. Auditions will take place at the Community Theatre of Howell at the Howell High School Freshman Campus, 1400 W. Grand River Ave.
The performance is set for 2 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 21, and will feature three radio shows: “Dragnet: The Big Bounce,” and two episodes of “Captain Midnight.”
CTH is are looking for 5-8 voice actors, as well as 1-2 Foley artists to provide sound effects. Voice actors must be able to read fluently and should expect to read for multiple roles. The Radio Hour is performed with scripts in hand, and timing is very important to the pace of each performance. Being able to read and speak aloud without breaking the flow is important to making the magic happen. Voice actors will not receive a script ahead of time. They will be asked to read various parts at auditions and should be prepared to show any accents or voices they can do. Ages 13 and up.
This is a low-commitment role: cast and Foley will meet once a week until the week of the show. There is a required dress rehearsal on Saturday, Jan.20. You do not have to be a CTH member to audition; however cast members will be required to become a member.
