Racine & Me: Auditions for 'Stand And Deliver' & 'Sweeney Todd'
RACINE, WI (CBS 58) -- Joycelyn Fish, the Director of Marketing and Development for the Racine Theatre Guild joined us to talk about upcoming show auditions and volunteer opportunities.
Stand and Deliver – Monday, February 27 and Tuesday, February 28 @ 7 p.m.
Director Edson Melendez will be holding open auditions at the Racine Theatre Guild About the Show: Jamie Escalante’s mission was to challenge his students to reach their full potential in and out of his classroom. When he is assigned to an inner-city school with a reputation of gangs, drugs, and dropouts, his offbeat teaching methods and quirky humor motivate his math students. Together, the students set a goal to take the Advanced Placement Calculus Test and pass. Based on a true underdog story, this urban fairy tale is a story of perseverance in the face of adversity. Roles available for: Large, diverse cast of men, women, and teens ages 16+, especially actors of Hispanic/Latinx origin including Afro-Caribbean Latinx cultures, or familiar with the Spanish language or Chicano culture Auditions: No experience necessary! Only have to attend one night of auditions which consist of a cold reading of the script. Show Run: weekends April 14 – 22, along with daytime school outreach performances on April 18, 20, 25 and 26

About the Show: Attend the tale of a barber wrongly convicted and out for vengeance against the corrupt judge who sent him to prison and tore his family apart.
