The Paxton Theatre has announced auditions for two upcoming events: “Jamboree Sings!” and “God of Carnage.”
The Paxton Theatre is looking for the next great traditional country vocalist and is offering people a chance to show off what they’ve got, while maybe winning a little money along the way at “Jamboree Sings!,” back for its second year.
Beginning April 1, three hopefuls will compete head-to-head, singing two songs each and backed by the PVJ Band. Guest judges will help the audience in narrowing down the winner, but ultimately the audience decides. The three winners from each performance will then compete on May 13, the final round, for a chance at the grand prize: $200 and the opportunity to headline their very own Paint Valley Jamboree on May 27.
Those interested in participating in “Jamboree Sings!” may begin registering online beginning Feb. 26.
“God of Carnage,” kicking off the 2016 theatrical season, will have open auditions at 6 p.m. Saturday, March 19.
A playground altercation between 11-year-old boys brings together two sets of Brooklyn parents for a meeting to resolve the matter. At first, diplomatic niceties are observed, but as the meeting progresses, and the rum flows, tensions emerge and the gloves come off, leaving the couples with more than just their liberal principles in tatters.
Those interested in auditioning for a role in “God of Carnage” should prepare a one- to two-minute comedic monologue. Those looking to work crew positions should also attend auditions to meet with the director.
The Paxton Theatre is located at 133 E. Main St., Bainbridge.
