Auditions open for biannual Easter Musical

Posted on Tuesday, December 4, 2012 at 6:53 pm

The time has come for auditions for the 2nd biannual Easter Musical presented by Presser Performing Arts Center (PPAC)  in Mexico is fast approaching. Auditions will be held December 11th and 13th beginning at 6:30 p.m. each night. All that is needed to audition is to complete an application and submit it at the Performing Arts Center or they may be dropped off at Pickering Funeral Home. Information needed to audition is posted online at

This years presentation is named “The Choice” and will feature a choir, several vocal solos, a drama cast that has speaking and non-speaking roles. The story of The Choice is definitely the Easter story but is presented in a slightly different but very interesting perspective. It will definitely be entertaining and challenging at the same time. Our community has a tremendous amount of talented folks. From actors and singers to the technical crew, set, makeup and  wardrobe designers. Hardly anything we use is purchased ready made. We custom make most everything we use. At our first production two years ago,  we had people that came from all over the country to watch their family present the Easter Musical, many that have seen professional live theatre, and the reviews that they gave us were extremely favorable. Many say that the theatre presentations at PPAC rival many large city professional shows. And the best part is that  you don’t have to travel and you don’t have to pay the “big city” prices. These productions are really one of the best kept secrets in this area. For more information about PPAC visit
