Here is a message from our Artistic Director, Jason Burgess, about auditions and crew interviews for tomorrow.

“Greetings Auditionees and Interviewees: I wanted to give you an update on auditions and crew interviews for tomorrow, Saturday, March 14th.

Both events WILL be taking place. Because these events are basically individual to individual interaction events, we feel safe and confident continuing them. We will be practicing “social distancing” of trying to remain 6 feet away from each other and advise others to do the same.

If you are not confident in this approach and would prefer to submit a video audition, then we are completely fine with this. You may email us a video audition by 5pm on Saturday, March 14th to jasonburgess@caststages.org. If you are unable to meet this deadline for the video submission, please email us and let us know and we might be able to make other accommodations.

As far as crew interviews are concerned, if you are not confident in this approach and would prefer to do a phone interview, we are completely fine with this. Please email us at jasonburgess@caststages.org and we will set up a time to do a phone interview with you.

As far as callbacks are concerned for PUFFS and NEWSIES, the production teams are working right now to figure everything out and we will have a definitive plan by the end of auditions tomorrow, Saturday, March 14th. At this moment, we plan on still holding callbacks next Saturday and posting all cast and crew lists on Tuesday, March 31st.

If you have any questions, comments or concerns at all, please do not hesitate to reach out and email us at jasonburgess@caststages.org.

Sincerely,
Jason Burgess
Artistic Director, CAST
