Salado’s Tablerock Festival will hold auditions for the musical drama “Salado Legends” at the Goodnight Amphitheater Saturday and Sunday.

The epic historical drama has a combined cast and production crew of more than 100 volunteers, according to playwright and producer Jackie Mills.

“Last year’s group ranged in age from 3 to 82,” she said, “and 35 families used ‘Salado Legends’ as a family project.”

“Legends” veteran director Donnie Williams returns for the 2014 season, and will conduct the auditions at Tablerock’s indoor stage.

“We need actors, singers, dancers and folks who want to be on the technical crew,” he said.

Singers should bring recorded accompaniment on CD or tape and actors will be asked to give a cold reading from the “Salado Legends” script. Age isn’t an issue, Williams said. “We have roles for all ages.” Dancers are asked to list their experience.

Rehearsals are organized by scene, and will be on weekday evenings starting June 9. Performances are July 19, 26 and Aug. 2.

Even though Tablerock is a volunteer theater and there is no monetary compensation for cast and crew, the festival awards scholarships to college students and high schoolers graduating in May, as well as high school students taking college-level courses. This year’s scholarship funds total more than $10,000 and “are distributed by the director according to need and service,” Mills said.
