Auditions Announced for WE ARE MONSTERS at Camp Carnegie


It’s that time of year again, The Carnegie invites any student between the ages of 7 and 18 who has ever attended Camp Carnegie or Artstop to take their skills to the next level and audition for WE ARE MONSTERS.

WE ARE MONSTERS is a hilarious musical that follows human kids into a monster cabaret filled with quirky characters. The adventurous humans uncover vegetarian vampires and rock ‘n roll werewolves, gradually realizing there may be more to these monsters than meets the eye! Most importantly, these monsters and kids discover the importance of friendship and celebrating the attributes that make each of us different and unique.

Auditions will be held by appointment on February 25 and 27 in Eva G. Farris Education Center at The Carnegie. There are five audition spots in each half-hour time slot:
