Auditions for McKinney Repertory Theatre’s (MRT) annual melodrama will be held June 3 and 4. Director Stan Kelly will conduct the auditions at the McKinney Performing Arts Center located at 111 N.

MRT is seeking actors who can think on their feet, ad lib where appropriate, have a sense of playfulness, spontaneity, zaniness and can ‘ham it up.’ If this sounds like you, plan to audition Sunday, June 3 at 7 p.m. or Monday, June 4 at 7 p.m. Callbacks, if necessary, will be Tuesday, June 5 at 7 p.m.

Audition appointments are preferred but not required. To schedule an appointment, contact the director, Stan Kelly, at or 626-665-6131. Please bring a current headshot and resume’. Auditioners should be familiar with the script which will be posted at prior to auditions.

Rehearsals will be held Monday through Thursdays, 6:30 p.m. – 9:30 p.m. beginning June 15th.

In this fun, interactive show, the audience is encouraged to throw popcorn and boo the villain and cheer the hero. The characters are larger than life, but real. The villain tries to fleece the heroine out of her fortune with the help of some sidekicks. The heroine wants to be a singer, but can't sing and the hero is an artist who's down on his luck and is the former boyfriend of the heroine.
