MOVE ON AUDITIONS: Mark your calendars, Near West Theatre veterans! Auditions for Move On, our June farewell show at St. Pat’s, will be the evenings of April 14, 15 and 16 at the theater. Anyone who has performed in the cast of any past Near West Theatre show (since 1978!) and is 7 years old or older is eligible to audition. Click here for audition times and show details.
Once on this Island Jr. will be on stage for four performances only, April 10-13. It will feature a cast of 9- to 15-year-old participants in our winter-spring KLAMOR program (Kids Loud and Musical Organic Revue). Rehearsals continue through April 9. For show info and tickets, click here.
General excavation is underway this month at the site of our future home in the Gordon Square Arts District, 6702 Detroit Ave. Get news, updates, photos and videos – on the new theater and everything else – by “liking” our Facebook page or following us on Twitter @NearWestTheatre.
