Auditions for Creamed Corn Queen
Anyone auditioning for Creamed Corn Queen will do cold reads from the script. Be prepared to give any conflict dates for rehearsals. Performances at other locations after the shows premier at Andria Theatre will be discussed along with dates of those additional performances and where they will take place.
Please come with the attitude of having fun with this new venture! Who knows? Maybe a few “curve balls” will be thrown out for those auditioning. You never know!!
