West Hudson Arts & Theater Company (WHATCo) to Hold Auditions for "The Great Gatsby: A Live Radio Play"

(WEST HUDSON, NJ) --  The West Hudson Arts & Theater Co (WHATCo) will host open auditions for The Great Gatsby: A Live Radio Play, adapted for the stage by Joe Landry, from the Novel by F. Scott Fitzgerald featuring original music by Kevin Connors and directed by Beatriz Esteban-Messina. Auditions will be held in person on Saturday, April 1st from 3:00pm to 5:00pm and Sunday, April 2nd from 3:00pm to 5:00pm at the WHATCo theater, 15 Frank E. Rodgers Blvd. South, Harrison, N.J. (the former Holy Cross School).  Call backs or a read through will be April 3rd from 7:00pm to 9:00pm.

Actors ages 18 and up are invited to read from the script and will portray the voices of multiple characters. Copies of the script will be provided at the auditions.

F. Scott Fitzgerald’s beloved classic comes to life as a 1940s radio broadcast in this spirited adaptation of The Great Gatsby. An ensemble brings more than two dozen characters from the novel to the stage of the WHAT radio station for a live broadcast, punctuated by 40s-era commercials. A story of triumph and tragedy that reflects the decadence of the Jazz Age and the perils of the American Dream. Still, ain’t we got fun?

Production dates are May 19, 20, 26, and 27  at 7:30pm and May 21 at 2:00pm.

Stage and technical crew, set building, and other volunteers are also needed for this production! To volunteer, contact
