A huge thanks to those who auditioned for a part in The Boarder. Wow, and now a report following the Ravenna Auditions:
ACTORS – Several will attend a Saturday, May 22nd event that's an extension of the audition process. Only those with a personal invitation should come to Ravenna's Senior Citizen Center at 1pm for the table reading of The Boarder script with actors from Omaha, etc. This isn't a promise of a role, but another opportunity to film you to see how actors and roles fit. Final roles will be cast by late May.
SINGERS – Several area singers have been invited to join the new Ravenna Gospel Choir guided by music directors, Pastor Geri Anderson from Kearney and Mrs. Teresa Mingus from Ravenna. Once the leaders have set up a rehearsal schedule you'll be notified where and when. Currently the choir will sing during the July 18th Ravenna music festival and maybe earlier in the week, too.
DANCERS -- All those who auditioned are selected to dance in the streets during filming on July 18th. Now that you know several line dances you are the leaders and will be asked to invite others from the crowd to join in. Keep practicing and watch for more information.
To those individuals not selected to perform -- because of your valiant efforts you'll receive a letter with an invitation to be an extra in group scenes. Although I expect many extras will show up, YOU will be selected FIRST. During filming watch the newspaper about where and when for extras, wear clothing appropriate for the scene, and have your letter with you so my crew knows to pick you first. Thanks!
