A note from Mr. Canavese -

Thanks to all who auditioned. The audition turn-out was great - 33 actors for seven acting slots. Given the very small cast, these decisions were excruciatingly difficult; there was far more talent on display than I could employ. Finding the correct mix of ability, age, experience and suitability for parts is a subjective and mysterious process. If you're able, please try out agin in the future, for the comedy, musical, Sanguine Humours (tryouts next week Wednesday or Thursday right after school in Sobrato's Black Box Theater) and/or the One Actors*.

Cast and crew: Congratulations. The first rehearsal will be Monday, September 4, at 4:00 pm at Sobrato Mainstage.

* The Bellarmine One Actor's club is looking for performers and directors. This club creates student-led productions and is focused on helping actors grown through performance and education. If you are interested, please contact Ryan Remmel for more information.
