CTC’s Fall Show is… INTO THE WOODS!

The Carlisle Theatre Company is thrilled to announce INTO THE WOODS as this year’s Fall Show.  The production is set to run November 3rd, 4th, and 5th.

Mark your calendars!!  AUDITIONS will be held August 13th, 14th, and 15th (call backs).


In addition, CTC is hosting — for the very first time – an AUDITION WORKSHOP, which will be run by the Director of the Fall Show with assistance from other individuals involved in the production of INTO THE WOODS.  Among other planned activities over the course of the Workshop, attendees will hone their audition pieces, whether for the upcoming Fall Show or any other audition that they choose to pursue.  (Please note: You are not required to participate in the Workshop in order to audition for CTC’s Fall Show.)  A “final performance” will also be prepared and performed on the last day of the Workshop.  As an added bonus, everyone who participates in the Workshop will receive complimentary admission to a special engagement/matinee showing of the Disney movie: Into the Woods, which will be shown at the Theatre the Saturday following the Workshop.
