Saline Area Players will hold auditions for The Best Carol Burnett Sketches show on September 11 & 12 at 7:00 pm (registration begins at 6:30), with callbacks on September 13 if needed.  The auditions will take place at Liberty School, 7265 N Ann Arbor St, Saline, MI.  Roles are open for adults, 18 and older.  Performance dates are November 3-6 and the show will be performed at Fifth Corner.

Rehearsals will take place on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday evenings, with the possible addition of Wednesday evenings.  Those who audition will be asked to fill out an audition form and list their conflicts.  A rehearsal schedule will be made taking into account the conflicts given.

Those auditioning should be prepared to do cold readings from the script, dress to move, and engage in improvisational games and exercises.  Adults 18 and older are encouraged to audition and based on turnout, we will cast 5-14.  Most actors will play multiple roles. 

The Carol Burnett Show was extremely popular on TV during the 70s. The family variety show is now just a fond memory. Saline Area Players are bringing back some of the comedy sketches seen on the Carol Burnett show.  It is a chance to re-live the fun and frivolity of the good old days.
