Dalton Little Theatre Announces Auditions For The Great Gatsby

Thursday, May 11, 2017

Dalton Little Theatre is holding auditions for its upcoming summer show, the F. Scott Fitzgerald classic “The Great Gatsby,” directed by Tanner Jaco.

Auditions are May 21 at 6 p.m. and May 22 at 7 p.m., with callbacks on May 23 at 7 p.m. Roles are available for men and women aged 18 and up.  

The Great Gatsby tells the story of Jay Gatsby, a self-made millionaire, who passionately pursues the elusive Daisy Buchanan. Nick Carraway, a young newcomer to Long Island, is drawn into their world of obsession, greed and danger. The breathtaking glamour and decadent excess of the Jazz Age come to the stage in Simon Levy's adaptation, approved by the Fitzgerald Estate. 

Those interested in auditioning will need to show up on either May 21 or May 22, and the director will call back a select group of actors for a final audition on May 23.  

Performance dates for The Great Gatsby will be July 14, 15, 21, 22, 28 and 29 at 7 p.m. with a matinee performance on July 23 at 2 p.m.
