IMPORTANT INFORMATION TO KNOW ABOUT US  BEFORE YOU AUDITION:

Actors will be called for dates on which their scenes are being rehearsed but may not be needed for every rehearsal.  We are distinctively Christian in purpose, with a mission to present stories with redemptive themes. We are open to partnering with all North Shore community members regardless of religious affiliation. We open our rehearsals with prayer which you are welcome to join; however, the rest of our process is much like any other professional or community theater experience you have had.
