The Great Gatsby Cast List

Here you will find the cast list for ACT’s upcoming production of The Great Gatsby. Thank you so much for everyone who auditioned, we are very grateful for everyone who came out and put their time, energy, and effort in auditioning for these shows. These choices were very difficult and, at the end of the day, we had a limited numbers of parts and far more qualified people then we could ever possibly cast. If you didn’t get into this show, we (genuinely) hope to see you again at future audition or at one of our classes, camps or programs. Please reach out to us at info@actstaff.org for information. These classes, camps, and programs are great way to learn theatrical skills and be involved here at ACT!

If you are on the cast list below we are very excited to work with you and are looking forward to a wonderful production.

The Great Gatsby will have its mandatory parent and student meeting on Monday December 19th at 6pm. This meeting will be held at ACT. We will also be having the cast do our first “read” through of the script from 7pm to 8:30pm. During the read through we are also going to have a secondary meeting for families about getting involved during the production. If you are on the cast list below, please email Lisa@acstaff.org letting her know that you’ve seen and accept which part you’ve been cast so that we can make sure we have a working email address for you. We will be delivering scripts digitally for this production so it is imperative that we have a working email address for you. Also, if you’d prefer a paper script you may print the digital copy given or let Lisa know in your email and ACT can provide a paper script at the parent meeting. As our script is a new work, there will be changes and updates to it as we go through the process. If you are planning on printing off the script on your own please wait until after our read through so we can give you the most up to date copy we can. Additionally, There will be lots of communication via email and it’s important that we have a working email address for you and your family.

At our meeting on Monday we will be going over paperwork, fees and handing out a calendar and scene breakdown for the production. Our calendar is being created based around your conflicts. If you need to add any conflicts PLEASE email Lisa prior to Monday December 19th with all your known conflict dates.
