Auditions scheduled for Dracula, Baby

July 17, 2012 by Randy Keck

Calling all Vampires & Vamps, Monsters & Mummies, Goblins & Ghouls.

Theatre Off The Square announces open auditions for the fiendishly funny, farcical musical Dracula, Baby. Based on the novel by Bram Stoker, the poduction is directed by Jon R. Kruse with choreography by Karen Dohoney.

Audition dates begin July 23 for cold readings of the script. July 24 auditions are for singing and movement (be prepared to sing a simple, a cappella tune).
