Beloit’s The Castle to host ‘The Not-So-Late-Night Variety Show’
BELOIT, Wisconsin — Saturday, Aug. 30, at Beloit’s newest performing arts venue, The Castle at 501 Prospect Ave., Greg Gerard will host “The Not-So-Late-Night Variety Show.”
For $15, the venue is bringing exclusive interviews with special guests such as New York 2014 double Grammy nominee Susan Aquila; local 2014 Tommy Award nominee Zack Ward; and Hollywood casting director Cheryl Faye Kloner.
On top of all of the entertainment, The Castle Kitchen will be preparing a feast fit for kings of either award-winning Chef Freddie’s (from Frankenfood Milwaukee) chicken fettuccine alfredo, Spaghetti a la Castle with a meat sauce, or the Very Veggie Spaghetti with tomato sauce. Reservations are required by calling (608) 362-1583 or www.thecastlebeloit.com. Doors open at 6:30 p.m., and the show starts at 7 p.m.
This will be the fourth in The Castle’s Summer Dinner Theater Series that provides Beloit theater lovers with top-notch entertainment put on by professional local talent. The Castle is making an effort to serve as a place that brings visual and performance art, as well as great food, to Beloit’s community at a reasonable price.
At 11:30 a.m., Aug. 31, Los Angeles casting director Cheryl Faye Kloner is visiting The Castle to give a seminar about casting calls titled, “The Ins and Outs of Hollywood: How to Break Into Hollywood.” This seminar will focus on the do’s and don’ts of auditioning and how to avoid the scams.
Kloner is a casting director who has worked extensively on many TV shows including Monk, ER, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and King of Queens. There will be an admission fee for the seminar of $15 for a half-hour presentation and half-hour Q&A session.
Following the seminar, The Castle will be holding a casting call for the Kings’ Court Theatre Troupe, free of charge. A variety of talent is sought.
