Rocklin Community Theatre (RCT) is seeking an actor to play the role of Mitch Mahoney in its upcoming production of "THE 25th ANNUAL PUTNAM COUNTY SPELLING BEE". Rehearsals began 1/22/12 and continue through 3/8/12 with performances 3/9/12 - 3/25/12. Must be a strong singer. Flexible rehearsal schedule possible. Please contact either Ryan Adame ( or Christi Axelson ( to set up an audition or for more details. Mitch Mahoney An ex-convict, Mitch appears an odd choice to be the bee's "comfort counselor," but it's part of his community service assignment. The outsider, who in a way gets to inhabit the audience perspective, he wonders about the wisdom of putting the kids though this at all. He has no idea how to offer comfort, but does increasingly find himself wishing he could find a way to make the kids feel better about losing, and perhaps place misspelling in wider perspective. E4 - A5

Strong actor also. Preferably fair in coloring but can adjust for the right actor. Individual weekly rehearsals begin the end of January. Sun-Thurs rehearsals in Grass Valley will begin in March.

Casting calls for 5 women between the ages of 18 and 70 for NUNSENSE II: SECOND COMING, by Dan Goggin, directed by Brent Null. The audition is Sunday, Feb. 5 at 7:00pm at Sutter Street Theatre, 717 Sutter Street, Folsom. Actors must prepare 16 bars of music (not from NUNSENSE or any its sequels) and be prepared for cold readings from the script. Callbacks will occur at the director's discretion. NUNSENSE II: SECOND COMING could easily be subtitled "the rest of the story". The sequel to the international hit musical NUNSENSE takes place approximately six weeks after the first "benefit performance." The same five nuns are back on stage at Mt. Saint Helen's School for what is billed as a "Thank You Program' for their supporters. This time they are forced to work around the set dressing of "The Mikado" which is presented the following week by the Hoboken Music Society on the Mt. Saint Helen's Stage. Trouble brews when Sister Mary Paul and her prize money are claimed by a bunch of Franciscans.
Show dates and times are: Fridays and Saturday at 8:00pm, Sundays at 4:00pm from March 16 - April 22, 2012. Contact Director Brent Null at for more info.
