Think you've got what it takes?
Auditions are now open for OCPAC's September production of the Addams Family. We're looking for a cast of incredibly talented lads and ladies to step up and join our powerhouse production team in taking on the challenge of presenting this satirical, whimsical and poignant musical comedy.

Auditionees will be required to prepare two contrasting songs showcasing your vocal range and acting abilities in the style of the show (don't go preparing a number from the show though, use your imagination). You'll also be required to attend a dance audition, we need to see your moves.

Unlike many previous OCPAC shows, the Addams calls for a cast of young and old. So whether you're 18 or pushing 80, we're keen to see you tread the boards. 

To book yourself a place, head on over to Trybooking.
