if you are interested in auditioning
Pandora Productions auditions and roles are open to ALL. Read our Cultural Equity, Diversity & Inclusion Statement HERE.
Additionally, unless the playwright or publisher demands that a character be a certain gender,
we will consider all genders for all roles.
Auditions will be conducted by the company’s Artistic Director, Michael J. Drury
A Note about Our Rehearsal Schedule: In order for us to continue to produce high quality productions and use local and regional actors, please consider that Pandora’s rehearsal schedule is rigorous. We work around all reasonable conflicts and every effort will be made, if cast, to create a schedule that fits your commitments. If we don’t feel we can work around your conflicts, we’ll let you know.
Our typical rehearsal schedule is: Mon – Thu 6:30 – 10 p; Sat 10 a – 4 p; Sun 4 – 10 p.
Not everyone will be called for every rehearsal. We don’t rehearse a show in order but rather in smaller French scenes then put the pieces together later to create the whole. This allows us to honor your conflicts in advance. Once a schedule is created it is set, absences will not be honored that weren’t agreed to up front.
We rarely rehearse a show in linear fashion and not all actors are called for each rehearsal.
When you are called you will be used. You won’t sit around waiting and never get to rehearse.
That’s not how we roll at Pandora.
Please consider if this is a structure that can work for you.
LA CAGE AUX FOLLES book by Harvey Fierstein, book + lyrics by Jerry Herman
Georges is the owner of the La Cage nightclub, which features a drag show starring the love of his life, Albin. After 20 years they face the hardest challenge of their relationship, yet: meeting their son, Jean-Michel’s fiance’s parents. Albin has always raised Jean-Michel, Georges’ biological son, as his own. But when Jean-Michel becomes engaged to the daughter of an ultra-conservative, anti-gay politician, Georges feels compelled to try to present a more “traditional” family to potential in-laws. When Albin tries and fails to take on a masculine persona in the role of Uncle Al, he gets more creative. A musical filled with delightful spectacle and great heart.
