Before "Lights, Curtain, Action!", it takes many hands to put on a show.

Cast

Have you ever wanted to bask in the limelight, dabble a toe at dancing or show off your inner smile? The Stissing Theatre Guild is always seeking actors to put on a show. Students of the Pine Plains Central School District in grades 4 through 12 are encouraged to audition for our spring show. Auditions happen in early November and rehearsals begin in early January.


If you want to try out for the show fill out a Cast Audition Contract and Info form (PDF opens in new window). Then sign up for an audition time slot in the high school library.

Crew

The crew are the unseen lifeblood of a show. They set the stage, run the lights and sound and make sure the props are where they need to be at the right time. Students of the Pine Plains Central School District in grades 6 through 12 are always needed for crew of our spring show. Sign-ups and interviews happen in early November and the crew starts to rehearse with the cast in late January.


If you want to interview for the crew fill out a Crew Audition Contract and Info form (PDF opens in new window). Then sign up for an audition time slot in the high school library.
