The Patriot Players Audition postponed from last Saturday has been rescheduled for this Saturday, Feb. 2 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Walker Fine Arts Theatre at Patrick Henry Community College.
Patriot Players is a new performing arts troupe forming at Patrick Henry Community College to promote the arts in the local area and give people with talent another avenue through which to pursue their passion and develop skills. The troupe will perform at various venues throughout the community.
Performers being sought for the troupe can include dancers, vocalists, actors, instrumentalists, visual artists, and variety artists (such as mime, juggling, beat box, magic, etc.). In addition, people interested in serving support functions like costumes, lighting, sound, and set- design are needed.
One audition was held Monday evening to accommodate those who could not attend on the weekend. Fifteen aspiring performers in various art forms tried out for spots in the troupe.
Members of the new troupe will be selected following the auditions. Judges are comprised of members of the founding board for Patriot Players, who are also professional performers. The first meeting of the troupe will be scheduled in early February.
Performers are encouraged to come to the auditions with a resume and head shot for the judges.
