  • The Palace Theater in the Dells Diverse Casting? 08/14/2018  11:15am

    Hello everyone!

    Just wanted to ask if any of you have any experience working for this theater, and if so, are they good with casting people of color (ALL colors...) or do they mainly cast white? Don't want to waste my time with auditioning if so...Thanks in advance

    They will pass on 100% of the people of color who don't bother showing up because they assume they aren't wanted.

    Don't shoot yourself in the foot. If you know in your heart that you are right for something or could bring something amazing to a role, even if you are a nontraditional choice for that role, or a choice inconsistent with that theater's casting history...show up. Always.

    i think the Palace Dells is turning over - Bob Cline just took over casting and apparently they have new housing. I think what we know of "palace dells" past is not going to be relevant any more so we should start with new eyes on them!

    ^In fact they're being very specific about it being NEW housing.

    I am rather amused.

    Take it from a guy who had the old housing: you want the new housing

    Pretty sure it's not new management. Just hiring an NYC casting director for their season. That doesn't necessarily indicate that a theater is being run better than it has in the past.
