Piedmont Opera announces auditions for its production of Ahrens and Flaherty’s Ragtime

Ragtime traces the story of three diverse families pursuing the American dream at the dawn of the twentieth century.  The worlds of a wealthy white family, an African American ragtime pianist, and a Jewish immigrant father and his daughter all collide together in this epic story told.  The production will be directed by award-winning actor, writer, producer, director, and current Artistic Director of The North Carolina Black Repertory Company, Jackie Alexander.  Piedmont Opera’s General and Artistic Director James Allbritten will serve as musical director and conductor.

The Company is seeking performers for all secondary roles and for the ensemble.  Performers are asked to prepare a musical theater selection – a pianist will be provided.  In addition, auditionees should be prepared to read a selected side from the musical.  Sides will be provided prior to the audition.  A small movement call will begin afterward.  No prior experience is needed.

Three performances are scheduled on March 18, 20, and 22, 2022 at the Stevens Center of the UNCSA.

Auditions will be at 600 Holly Ave, Winston Salem, NC 27101.


For further information and to schedule an audition, please send a request along with a resume to info@piedmontopera.org


The deadline for scheduling an audition is Thursday, November 11.
