There were 30 people for callbacks on Thursday night. That’s 3 people for each role. Lane Teilhaber told us that there were nearly 100 people who auditioned for Play On! That’s huge for a community theatre. I knew upon arriving that I probably would not get a part.
Brink Miller, who has done many shows at Kudzu Playhouse as well as Stage Door Players, was also reading for HENRY. Brink looks the part age wise. I have seen Brink in 3 plays that I remember and he is very good. Remember HENRY is a 50+ character and, well, I look early 30’s.
Lane did tell us that he would only be calling those who received a role by 1 PM the next day. Already knowing that I did not receive a part, I get a phone call from Lane just before noon. I was a little shocked. Lane had called me to let me know that he could not use me in this play, but hoped that we could work together again. Lane is a great director to work for.
I am sure Lane has a superb cast for Play On! I plan on seeing it when it opens at Kudzu Playhouse.
