The Haywood Arts Regional Theatre will hold auditions for its October production of the hit Broadway musical “The Light in the Piazza” at 6:30 p.m. on Aug. 5-6.
The production is being directed by Charles Mills and opens on Oct. 5 for a three-weekend run.
The show with music by Adam Guettel and a book by Craig Lucas tells the story of a woman from Winston-Salem who journeys in the 1950s to Florence, Italy with her learning impaired daughter. The daughter finds romance, and the mother must make some hard choices. There are leading roles for four women and four men with additional supporting roles and chorus.
Actors auditioning as professionals should come with a headshot and resume, as well as a prepared audition piece. Community theater actors should come with sheet music and a prepared song. All actors will be given the opportunity to read from the script. Anyone interested in working backstage on the production is also encouraged to come by during auditions to sign up. Auditions will be held in the Feichter Studio of the HART Theatre, 250 Pigeon St. in Waynesville.
