Home / Auditions

CVP holds Open Auditions for our productions, meaning they are open to anyone 18 yrs and older. No experience is required! CVP accepts both novice and experienced actors, and we provide a fun, casual and non-judgmental atmosphere. CVP is a non-equity community theatre that thrives on volunteers from the local community. CVP membership ($35/year) is required for everyone in a production.

Auditions consist of readings from selected scenes, called “cuts” or “sides”; scripts/sides will be provided at the audition. Actors may attend one or both nights of auditions. Contact the director for an audition form, a copy of the script, or if you need to schedule an alternate audition time/date.

Auditions are held at The Depot Theatre, 4861 White Lake Rd., Clarkston MI 48348

Synopsis: Reuben Soady goes to the deer camp with his father Albert, his brother Remnar, and Jimmy “The Jimmer” Negamanee from Menominee. If Reuben doesn’t manage to shoot a buck by the end of the season, he will become the oldest Soady in recorded history not to have achieved this task, a taboo that leads people in the community to believe he is jinxed. Reuben breaks with tradition, taking advice from his Native American wife, Wolf Moon Dance, who offers spiritual remedies to protect him from evil spirits and attract his prey to him. Along the way he finds help in the spirit – grandfather, Alphonse Soady, who guides him to shooting a buck sent to him by the spirits.
