Hilltowns Players audition for Bah, Humbug!

Hello, everyone!  I hope you're having an enjoyable summer.

Summer, to the Hilltowns Players, means it's time to get ready for auditions for our fall show. We will be performing the lively musical version of Dickens’s classic A Christmas Carol, titled Bah, Humbug!

Audition dates are Wednesday, Aug. 7, and Monday, Aug. 12, at 7 p.m. at the Helderberg Lutheran Church in Berne.

A large cast is needed, so no one will be turned away. Performers ages 8 through adults are needed.  Auditioners age 11 and under will need to sing "God Bless America,” and those age 12 and up will need to sing our national anthem.

Those accepting a part in the play will be expected to pay a membership fee at the first rehearsal of $10 for adults and $5 for students (for insurance purposes).

Rehearsals will be at the church and the Berne-Knox-Westerlo High School on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday evenings from 7 to 9 p.m. beginning Sept. 9 (with longer rehearsals the week before and the week of the show).

Show dates are Nov. 22 and 23 at 7:30 p.m. and Nov. 24 at 3 p.m.  For more information, call 872-9455.  I hope to see you there.  Tell your friends!
