WINONA, Minn. — Local performers are invited to submit online auditions through Sept. 3 to join the cast of Place Please!, a performance that’s part of the 2018 Page Series presented by the Saint Mary’s University Page Theatre.

Set backstage during the final moments before the curtain rises, Places Please! is a cabaret-style performance that explores the ups and downs of show business and features a dance fanatic’s dream music score — from Broadway classics to contemporary classical music to ‘80s pop hits. Up to 10 local performers will be integrated into ensemble numbers, and up to three performers will be featured as soloists.

Performers in any discipline ages 15 and up are invited to submit online audition materials consisting of a brief personal profile and video work sample. A panel will select most of the performers, but an “Audience Choice” performer will also be selected from votes on the Page Theatre’s Facebook page.

The Nov. 10 performance will also feature Larry Keigwin and Nicole Wolcott.

To learn more about Places Please! or this opportunity, or to submit audition materials, visit pagetheatre.org.

This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a Minnesota State Arts Board Operating Support grant, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
