Callbacks will be held the following weekend.

The play has 25+ parts, most of which can be played by adults of any gender. There are small and large parts for a variety of ages. The play also requires a few musicians (ideally playing mandolins) with small or no speaking parts.

The directors would like teen actors to play the title roles. If you are age 13-18 and interested, please contact kdolejsi@gmail.com to schedule your audition. The directors will work with the Olions’ schedule if an actor is cast in both “Frozen” and “Romeo and Juliet.”
