In order to comply with COVID-19 guidelines, Northern Light Opera Company’s scheduled auditions for its summer’s production of “Big Fish” will still be Friday, but the process has changed.
Rather than gathering at a specific location, auditions will be done on line, using the meeting program ZOOM. Go to www. northernlightopera.org, click on “auditions info” and follow directions. Click on the March 27 time slot to secure a spot. You will then be invited to audition, on ZOOM, from your home/location.
The 2020 summer musical will be “Big Fish,” a rollicking fantasy set in the American South that premiered on Broadway in 2017. This is your invitation to become part of a fun/rewarding adventure and audition to become one of the characters telling this story.
Main characters: Edward, storytelling father; Sandra, patient mother; Will, skeptic son; Josephine, sweet wife; Karl, giant; Amos, circus owner; witch, storyteller; numerous ensemble.
Additional opportunities: If you’re shy about performing on stage, consider becoming one of our valued volunteers. We need volunteers who can use a screw gun, saw, paint, sew/fit costumes, distribute posters, become word-of-mouth story tellers, etc.
Whether you are on stage or behind-the-scenes, you become part of making magic happen.
