CVP holds Open Auditions for our productions, meaning they are open to anyone 18 yrs and older. No experience is required! CVP accepts both novice and experienced actors, and we provide a fun, casual and non-judgmental atmosphere. CVP is a non-equity community theatre that thrives on volunteers from the local community. CVP membership ($35/year) is required for everyone in a production.
Auditions consist of readings from selected scenes, called “cuts” or “sides”; scripts/sides will be provided at the audition. Actors may attend one or both nights of auditions. Contact the director for an audition form, a copy of the script, or if you need to schedule an alternate audition time/date.
Auditions are held at The Depot Theatre, 4861 White Lake Rd., Clarkston MI 48348

The World Famous Soady Deer Camp will never be the same. Things go wrong that are unexplainable. Rueben has never shot a deer and is on the verge of being the oldest Soady to go without a buck in the history of the Soady Clan. Forces, supernatural and otherwise, converge on the world famous Soady deer camp to try and resolve this problem. No plan ever survives contact, and that is exactly what happens. When da homemade brew goes bad, ya know you’re in trouble. Director: Joe Mishler Producer: Karen McClellan
Albert Soady- 60’s, father, cantankerous, bossy
Rueben Soady- 35, son, tries real hard
Remnar Soady- 33, son, proud, arrogant
Jimmer Negamanee – Ageless, abducted by aliens, might be an alien.
Ranger Tom- 30’s-40’s – from Detroit and clueless
Wolf Moon Dance Soady- 30’s, married to Rueben
Favorite line in da play, “Deer love da highway.”
All of the action takes place inside of the Soady deer hunting cabin located deep in the woods north of Escanaba. (For dose of ya who don’t know, dats in da UP)
