Thank you to everyone who auditioned for ACT II’s You Can’t Take It with You. Unfortunately this is a small-cast show, so not everyone who auditioned could be cast. I hope that everyone who was not cast will continue to audition for future shows, as everyone did an exceptionally good job. All who auditioned were exceedingly talented.
Because everyone was so good, it was difficult to decide who to cast. Most of my casting decisions were based on the script’s physical requirements for the characters, such as some of the characters having to carry or lift other characters, as well as my personal concepts of what the characters should look and sound like.
With that being said, I now want to congratulate the cast and crew of You Can’t Take It with You.

On Friday night, November 1, 2013, all of the cast and crew members, parents/guardians, director, and producers will meet at Alamance Lutheran Church at 6:30 pm. A great deal of important information will be discussed so it is mandatory that each cast member and a parent/guardian attend this mandatory organizational meeting.
A $50 Participation Fee will be collected from each cast member ($40 for each additional sibling). The fee helps to cover some of the show costs. Scholarships are available to ensure that no young person is unable to participate. Simply speak to one of the producers after the parent meeting to make these arrangements. Scholarship families will be requested to pay what they can and will be asked to contribute additional volunteer hours to the production (see below for more information on volunteer hours).
As part of each ACT production, an actor’s family is expected to help with painting sets, working on costumes or props, publicizing the show, and other needs. If circumstances limit a family’s active involvement, simply speak to one of the producers after the organizational meeting for other options.
Rehearsals will be at Alamance Lutheran Church, and will generally occur between 6:00 pm and 8:30 pm on Monday-Friday nights. There may also be one or two Saturday rehearsals. Not all cast members will be scheduled for each rehearsal, but actors will be expected to attend all of the rehearsals for which you have been scheduled. Tech week begins on Monday, January 20, 2014, with rehearsals each night at the Paramount Theater. All cast and crew are required to participate in all performances.
The performances will be at the Paramount Theater (Burlington, NC). They are January 24-26 and 31-February 2, 2014. All cast and crew must be present at all shows.
