SUMMER THEATERS TO CAST ON COAST

 LONG BEACH, Calif., Jan. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- More than a dozen theaters from across the country will join forces at Cal State University in Long Beach on the weekend of Feb. 12 to cast their summer seasons under the auspices of the non-profit StrawHat Auditions organization. Musical and non-musical auditions are held each day before the audience of producers, directors and casting personnel, followed by an optional dance call and individual callback with interested theaters.
 Founded in 1979, StrawHat brings together theaters of every description from theme parks and showboats to Shakespeare festivals and outdoor pageants. This year, western companies such as the Paramount Screen America Theme Park, the Utah Shakespearian Festival, Shakespeare Santa Cruz, and Starlight Musicals of San Diego will be joined in Long Beach by other summer theaters from as far away as Colorado and New Hampshire, all there for one reason only: to hire designers, crews, stars and apprentices.
 "Last year, over 80 percent of our participants had at least one theater callback, and the average was between three and four per person. And the top 10 percent had from six to eight callbacks apiece," says StrawHat producer David Watson.
 Auditions are by appointment only, Feb. 12-14. Performers must pre-register and may not be Equity members. For full information and an application, which must be returned by the first week in February, interested performers should call 310-288-1150 as soon as possible.
