AUDITIONS COMING UP

Our new stage is calling you!

 

The Pocket Sandwich Theatre is ready to start producing shows again. We are excited to announce the auditions scheduled for the first two shows at our new location in historic downtown Carrollton! We will open with one of our favorite popcorn-tossing melodramas "Dracula-the melodrama" by Joe Dickinson followed by our beloved annual Christmas musical, the 40th production of Ebenezer Scrooge, by Joe Dickinson and Laurie Tirmenstein.

"DRACULA-the melodrama", our first play and audition call,  is another of the Pocket's infamous audience-participation, popcorn-tossing, comedy spoofs, this time poking affectionate fun at Bram Stoker's classic vampire horror story.  The old bloodsucker faces garlic, stakes, popcorn, and his own razor sharp wit in one of our most popular melodramas. 

 

Auditions for Dracula will be held Saturday, September 17th from 1pm to 6pm and Sunday, September 18th from 1pm to 6pm at the "rehearsal hall", address below. There is a one hour break each day.  Click on Dracula or HERE to schedule an appointment. 

We'd love to sink our teeth into you!

 This production runs from October 14-November 12, 2022

The auditions will be at the theatre's new rehearsal space, 5 minutes from downtown:

1225 W. College Ave., Suite 416, Carrollton, TX 75006-3669,

two blocks west of Downtown Carrolton DART Rail Station.
