Auditions are are officially underway for yet another massive set of shows coming to Rome. This year, SummerStage is presenting both Fiddler on the Roof and The Little Mermaid on the grand Rome Capitol Theatre stage. Dates for auditions being June 12th an 13th, with callbacks on Wednesday.
A 'Tradition' in Rome
For years, SummerStage has always put on two musicals per season. Everything came to a halt in 2020 when the pandemic hit, leaving the Rome community without live theater. It wasn't until 2 years later when they came back in full force.
SummerStage put on a fantastic production of Jesus Christ Superstar, taking to the newly renovated theater as if they'd never left. This was then followed by an amazing ShowStoppers concert performance, highlighting over 30 years of shows on the Capitol Theater stage.
Flash Forward to 2023
Now back to two shows, auditions are open for everyone to come and enjoy. You do have to be 12 years or older to join, with a flexible schedule to meet the limited rehearsal dates.
