We are a true community theater. Thus all our shows feature volunteer actors and stage personnel. All roles in our productions are always open to auditioners, with no restrictions. For non-musicals, scripts are usually available for perusal at the Hudson Library at least two weeks prior. Those auditioning will be asked to read from the script. For musicals, auditioners are asked to have a song prepared and to bring along appropriate sheet music for the accompanist. Musical auditioners will also be asked to read from the script, and in many cases will be shown a brief movement exercise. Those interested in working backstage, on sets, lights, etc, are encouraged to come to auditions as well and fill out a form letting the producer know their areas of interest. All auditions are held at the Barlow Community Center on Oviatt St in Hudson, typically at 7pm on Sunday and Monday evenings.
Feel free to complete and print out the below audition form to bring with you to auditions.
Pump Boys and Dinettes: A Rollicking Visit to Small-Town America
Pump Boys and Dinettes is a rollicking, down-home visit to small-town America at its very best. Come on down to our neck of the woods and meet the "Pump Boys," a quartet of petrol-pumping, song-swapping good ol' boys who keep the wheels turning on Highway 57. When they're not busy filling up your tank, they're strumming their guitars and harmonizing their voices to a lively mix of country, rock, and pop tunes.
Next door to the Pump Boys' gas station is the Double Cupp diner, where the Cupp sisters, Prudie and Rhetta, dish up comfort food and smiles with all the fixin's. These two sassy ladies are always ready with a quip or a song, and their pies are legendary.
Performance dates: April 26,27; May 3,4,5*, 10,11,12*; 17,18, 2024
