Backstage, Inc., is pleased to announce auditions for the 2012 production of Heart of the Tin Trunk, a large scale historical musical performing July 27 - August 5 at the 850-seat Concert Stage at the Festival Institute in Round Top. For this second annual staging we are looking for actors, singers and dancers of all shapes, and ages. This year, we will be holding open auditions in Bastrop, Brenham, and La Grange. All actors in the cast will receive a stipend for their contributions to the show. An additional travel stipend may be given for performers traveling from more than 25 miles from La Grange.
A battered old tin trunk reveals its hidden heart through family treasures that recall storied memories of perseverance, bravery and family spirit that bring adventure, discovery and love to a young Texas girl. The story takes you from today's generation to the heart of the historic Czech lands, where a mother faces a terrifying decision to take her children on a dangerous journey across an unknown ocean in search of a new life in Texas.
