Upcoming Auditions: "Suite Surrender"

Auditions for "Suite Surrender" will be held Jan 5, 2015, with callbacks on Jan. 6, 2015, 7 p.m., at the Grand Opera House. There are parts for 5 women (2 singing roles), 4 men and 4 non-speaking women or men. It’s 1942, and two of Hollywood’s biggest divas have descended upon the luxurious Palm Beach Royale Hotelassistants, luggage and a legendary feud with one another in tow. Everything seems to be in order for their wartime performance...that is, until they are somehow assigned to the same suite. Performance dates are Feb. 27-March 1 and March 5-7, 2015, with a preview performance on Feb. 25. For more information, email director Kathy Riedy or call 605.280.9101 or email assistant director Deb Sheffield or call 605.280.0631. Learn more.
