The Characters

The show requires a cast of 5 women and 2 men. All are adults, although one woman could be an older teenager.

The Auditions

Auditions will be held at Chickasaw Civic Theatre, 801 Iroquois St, Chickasaw, AL.

During auditions we will read from the script. No special preparation is required.

Chickasaw Civic Theatre asks all individuals to wear masks and socially distance while inside the theater building. Please prepare for auditions accordingly.

The Pandemic

We realize there is risk involved in putting on a show next spring, but we want to give it a shot (pun intended). Our intent is for the cast and crew to be fully vaccinated, and we will be taking other appropriate precautions to protect the audience. We hope these measures will allow us to proceed with the show as scheduled.

Community theater happens only if the community wants it to happen. So our deepest thanks to all volunteers who agree to help us with Blithe Spirit, whether as cast or crew. Everyone involved will be assuming the health risks that go along with staging a production at this time.

With that in mind, we request that you audition for a role only if

  • You intend to be fully vaccinated against COVID by the start of rehearsals in early February 2022.

AND

  • You are comfortable performing maskless indoors with other fully vaccinated cast and crew.
