Calling all budding thespians!

So, who’s ready to join the Addams family?
Just a normal family
Red Mountain Theatre (RMT) is bringing the Addams family to Birmingham. Our youth can showcase their talent by auditioning. Of course, RMT is looking for the talented youth of Birmingham with the spirit of Broadway.
“We’re excited to see all these talented kids in action. Theatre is at the core of what we do, and it’s going to be so much fun to see these kids bring this show to life.”Director of Education, Bradford Forehand

Who is Red Mountain Theatre?
RMT has produced many talents, such as Jordan Fisher, from their education program. So, you don’t want to miss out on this audition! RMT offers unique and high-quality professional theatre for the Birmingham area.
In addition to RMT’s educational opportunities for young actors, they offer educational pursuits for older Birmingham folks. Older thespians or those with an interest in acting can join Red Mountain Theatre’s Seasoned Performers, a group of 55-and-older who have a passion for performing. Seasoned Performers have weekly rehearsals and training sessions leading up to a 45 minute – 1hour performance. They even perform up to 70 times a year!
RMT never fails to produce outstanding performances. Being involved in The Addams Family is a great opportunity to experience the new Red Mountain Theatre’s Arts Campus, gain proper theatre etiquette and earn professional artistic skills for their resume.
