Published: Monday, May 26, 2014 2:10 p.m. CDT

LASALLE — Director Daniel Haun has announced auditions for Stage 212’s special production of “Rent,” the edgy Tony Award-winning musical by Jonathan Larson, will be at 6:30 p.m. May 28 and 29 at the theater, 700 First St., LaSalle. Call backs will be at 1 p.m. June 1.

Haun will be casting eight principals, plus four to eight ensemble members. All auditioners must be at least 18 years old.

Auditioners should come prepared with a one-minute song from a pop/rock musical, excluding “Rent,” which showcases their range and voice, and they should wear comfortable clothes that show off their personality. There will not be a dance audition, so there is no need to wear movement clothes.

For more information, those interested in auditioning should visit www.stage212.org. Those who cannot attend auditions in person may submit an online audition through May 25. For more information, email stage212@att.net.

“Rent” will be presented Aug. 7–10.

Stage 212 auditions are open to all regardless of prior theatrical experience.
