Time In Westfield - Audition Info

Be a Part of Westfield History!

Come to the Westfield Woman’s Club at 28 Court Street on Sunday, January 13th at 4:00 to find out how community members can be a part of local history by participating in the upcoming musical, Time in Westfield, written by local playwright Kathleen Palmer with music written by Marion Dunk.

The original production is a light-hearted, entertaining presentation on the story of Westfield from its early beginnings in the 1660s up to the present day. The show is sponsored by the Westfield Woman’s Club and is being performed in conjunction with the city wide 350th birthday celebration in May of 2019. It is being produced by Shelley Haber.

The purpose of the January 13th session is to encourage community members to be part of the presentation by providing information about the show, and answering any questions that people may have. In addition to being on stage there are many other ways to assist. All levels of participation are encouraged.

Auditions are scheduled for Wednesday, January 23 at 6:30. There are over 30 roles for adults and 10 roles for children (over 9 years old), not including chorus. Roles are many and varied, covering a wide range of performing ability (some with dialogue, some without, some with singing and so on). Previous experience on stage is not required! Please join us to see how you can be part of this historic, fun event.
