We couldn't be happier to have been awarded a Grassroots Grant by The Asheville Arts Council to help pay our talented actors performing in Feet Water (October 2017) and The Sultan's Wife (February 2018). Our local Arts Council is an invaluable resource for artists of all kinds here in WNC. Thank You!
We had so much fun hosting Ben & Asher, Asheville's newest musical duo for kids. They wowed families with guitars, puppets and a drum made from a suitcase! We loved meeting new families and introducing them to Attic Salt Theatre Arts Space and we can't wait to have Ben & Asher (with their TBA new band name) join us again soon!
Attic Salt is auditioning for our production of The Nerd which will run at NC Stage April 7 - 23.

Attic Salt Theatre Company, producers of 2016’s highly-acclaimed play, How I Learned to Drive, is holding auditions for the over-the-top comedy, The Nerd by Larry Shue. The play is to be presented at NC Stage as part of their Catalyst Series, April 4-23 (no show Easter Sunday). It takes place in 1979 and will be directed by Jeff Catanese. Rehearsals will be only a couple evenings a week starting in late February.
We are looking for a child actor of any race with VERY STRONG comic sensibilities for the following role:
Thor Waldgrave (Any gender, must play an 8 y.o. boy): The Waldgraves' terror of a son. "Poster child for planned parenthood."
Auditioners should be prepared to improvise some simple scenes. For any questions, please contact Marci Bernstein at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Four of these talented performers will be working with us for the first time. Two, Christy and Adam, have appeared with us before - both in Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike. Christy now holds the award for "most Attic Salt shows" after also appearing in God of Carnage and two of our Saturdays on Stage shows for kids. Big thanks to everyone who came out for the open call!
We are still looking for a Thor Waldgrave and will be holding additional auditions on Sunday, February 12th from 2-5pm. Thor is an eight year old boy described as "the poster boy for birth control". We will cast either a boy or girl of any age as long as they can realistically play an eight year old boy.
The Nerd runs for three weekends in April at NC Stage. Tickets are available now at NCStage.org!
