Because the Palace Cultural Arts Association’s mission includes “fostering appreciation, education, and participation in the arts,” the PCAA Board of Directors and Management are committed to creating opportunities for people to experience the performing arts not just from the seat but from the stage as well. Future opportunities to participate in local Palace produced events are listed below.
2023/2024 Audition Opportunities
Under the Big Top
Down and out, the circus performers are trying desperately to find enough courage to put on the biggest big top performance of their lives and catch the circus crooks before Mr. Hawkins, the bank president, closes the circus. Step right up for an evening of memorable fun with characters like Tipsy Toe – The Rope Walker, Bertha The Bearded Lady and a host of other unbecoming characters.

Lend Me A Tenor
World-renowned tenor Tito Merelli has signed on to play Otello at a Cleveland opera company in the fall of 1934. He arrives late and, through a set of crazy circumstances, passes out after mixing wine with a huge dose of tranquilizers. Believing that the divo is dead, the excitable opera manager taps his hapless assistant, an aspiring singer named Max, to suit up as the Moor and replace Merelli. Meanwhile, the tenor’s jealous wife, his ambitious female co-star, Max’s young girlfriend and the flirtatious head of the opera guild are on the scene fighting—sometimes literally—for the star’s attention.
Auditions for this season’s Adult Play, Lend Me A Tenor, will be held February 27 & 28 from 5 pm-7 pm. Auditioners should prepare a 30-60 second comedic monologue and come ready to read from the script. Those auditioning do not need to attend both nights. Performance dates are April 12-14, 2024
