Katy Visual and Performing Arts Center's Encore Players will be holding auditions for Empowered: How One Girl Scout Nearly Destroyed the World's Economy by Don Zolidis directed by Joshua Schorejs next Monday, May 1st from 7 to 9PM.

Amaryllis is determined to win her Girl Scout troop's cookie-selling contest, but she'll need more than charm to win first prize (a unicorn!) and avoid last place (which means getting kicked out of the troop!). So when sales droop, she naturally turns to the financial sector for advice. Soon she's faking a terminal illness, franchising her methods, and contracting with a payday lender to offer 30-year loans for cookies. A hysterical homage to Glengarry Glen Ross and send-up of the wild excesses of the financial crisis.

We are looking to cast an ensemble of 7 women and 3 men; actors of any age or ethnicity.

We ask that actors prepare 2 contrasting comedic monologues no longer than 3mins in total length.

Empowered will have performances July 7th, 8th, & 9th.

If you are interested in auditioning, or would like more information, please contact the director, Joshua Schorejs, to set up an audition time at

Thank You!

"Theatre Under The Stars (TUTS) will hold auditions in Houston on May 6th and 7th for the upcoming production of PIPPIN, slated to run at the Miller Outdoor Theatre this summer.

PIPPIN will be directed and choreographed by Michelle Gaudette who directed MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET for TUTS last summer at Miller Outdoor Theatre.

“We are so looking forward to our annual summer shows at Miller Outdoor Theatre. Our relationship with our friends and colleagues at Miller Outdoor Theatre provides us with the opportunity to remember our beginnings there nearly 50 years ago. Our lineup for this summer, which includes PIPPIN, will build upon our tradition of providing access to some of Houston’s best musical theatre. We are delighted to be working with our long-time collaborator Michelle Gaudette and our immensely talented local actors to create a summer line-up that inspires, entertains, and celebrates all that is great about Houston and the Houston arts scene,” said Hillary Hart, Executive Director of Theatre Under The Stars.

PIPPIN, a circus inspired production, features a troupe of acrobatic performers led by a very charismatic Leading Player. The performers’ main purpose is to tell the story of Pippin, a young prince who is longing to find adventure and passion in all areas of his life.
PIPPIN, with book by Roger O. Hirson and music & lyrics by Stephen Schwartz, will play at Miller Outdoor Theatre July 11-16, 2017.


The Houston auditions will take place at the Hobby Center for the Performing Arts in the Administration Building, located at 800 Bagby St.,
Houston, Texas 77002, and the schedule for the days will be as follows:
Saturday, May 6th
2-6 p.m.

And finally, there's Dinah a senior citizen Hell's Angel.
What keeps these women together? And what dark secret are they all hiding? And why do they keep Dying? Find out in this comedy chiller, where you are not sure who or what to believe, who is really murdering who. And finally, what really happened to Jinx the cat?
