PARIS, TX -- Keewell Productions is excited to announce auditions for its upcoming production of the first ever community-wide Passion Play: The Promise. Auditions will be held on June 29th and 30th, 6:30 PM at Elite Dance Academy (Tejas Plaza, 201 N Collegiate Street, Suite 375 in Paris).
The Promise is an exciting musical that portrays the life of Christ from His birth, to His death and resurrection. It has been performed for almost 30 years in the outdoor Texas Amphitheatre in Glen Rose, Texas, and Keewell is excited to bring this powerful production to Lamar County. “We have roles for all ages and types,” said the production’s co-producer and director Joshua Maxwell. “We’re hoping to create an atmosphere where all are welcome and bring together various groups and congregations from around the area. We have roles for singers, actors, dancers...anyone with a desire to be a part of the production. We’ll also need plenty of help backstage, so even if people aren’t comfortable with getting in front of a large crowd we encourage them to come to auditions and learn more about the production.” "We're very excited." said co-producer and choreographer Danielle McKee. "This production will take not only involvement from the artistic community, but the community as a whole. In addition to announcing auditions we are also seeing sponsorships from businesses and individuals across the area. This production is quite an undertaking, but we know we have a supportive community that will be blessed by the show we present."
