Carrollwood Cultural Center and show director Jaime Giangrande-Holcom are seeking hilarious actors for their immersive and interactive production of TONY N’ TINA’S WEDDING.
Audience members are the guests at the nuptial celebration of Tony Nunzio and Valentina Vitale in all its tacky and hilarious glory. Following the church service is a reception where the audience joins the wedding party and their bickering families for a pasta dinner, champagne toasts, wedding cake, and dancing to a five-piece band.
AUDITIONS: Sunday, March 6 / 12:30 – 3 p.m.
Auditions will be held at The Studio @ Carrollwood Cultural Center (13345 Casey Rd Tampa Fl. 33618).
Please be prepared to cold read from the script and improv.
Seeking comedic performers comfortable with both scripted material and improv as this show seamlessly switches back and forth from script to improv with the guests at the wedding of Tony n’ Tina.
