If you are serious about your acting career, you need to land a talent agent to represent you. You also need to submit your photos and resumes to casting directors who audition actors. You need to study acting with the best coaches. You need the proper paperwork and permits to be able to work in the many locations that filming takes place these days. You need the best headshots that you can afford, because your headshots are your calling-card to the industry. I highly recommend getting the 2014 Actors Resource Guide eBooks which have comprehensive listings of the top talent agents, casting directors, acting teachers and schools, headshot photographers and photo duplication services, work permits and visa information and applications, and much more important lists and information. The eBooks are available for many locations in the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom.

Auditions for High Point Community Theatre's 'Young Frankenstein'

Mark your calendars!!! Auditions for High Point Community Theatre's YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN are coming soon! August 15th 6-9, Saturday the 16th 12-3. If needed, callbacks will be Sunday the 17th from 3-6. Auditions will be held at Centennial Station, 101 S. Centennial Street in High Point. The production dates are October 23rd -26th.

Centennial Station
101 S Main Street
High Point NC 27260

IT’S ALIVE! A wickedly inspired re-imagining of the Frankenstein legend based on Mel Brooks’ classic 1974 comedy film masterpiece, the story follows bright young Dr. Frankenstein (that’s Fronkensteen) as he attempts to complete his grandfather’s masterwork and bring a corpse to life. But this musical comedy hit, winner of the 2008 Outer Critics Circle Award, is not without scary and hilarious complications. The show includes such memorable tunes as “The Transylvania Mania,” “He Vas My Boyfriend”, "Roll in the Hay", and the famous “Puttin’ On The Ritz.”

We will be doing this production in "black and white" with the intent of making the musical resemble the movie. (Homage is the greatest form of flattery Mr. Brooks) There will be projected backdrops, "moving" film footage, a very "electric" laboratory, and a Hollywood Horror show make- up artist for the monster and to teach the cast the fine art of being a "black and white" movie star. Come be a part of something very different and fun!
