HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME AUDITIONS
Calling all local performers! Arts One Presents is holding auditions for their summer musical, “Disney’s The Hunchback of Notre Dame.” They have already held auditions for the main roles, but what they really need you to audition for is to be a part of the full choir that will sing on stage during the show. They are holding auditions for choir singers on Tuesday May 31 at Arts Live Theatre in Fayetteville from 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. and people can sign up for audition time slots right now . We have a link on our website. Performances are later in July at the Don Tyson School of Innovation.
112 DRIVE-IN “TOP GUN”
If you’re looking for something to do this Memorial Day weekend, why not support our local drive-in? Summer Blockbuster Season will be in full swing as they are screening “Top Gun: Maverick,” Thursday through Sunday evenings. And, you can just go ahead and turn on your “cruise control” because the second feature film they are screening as part of the double bill is the 1990 hit, “Days of Thunder” – also starring Tom Cruise. Both films are rated PG-13.
