Welcome Home: The BDACT Reopening Spectacular

Since BDACT and Director Ryan Madala-Klug would really like to make the Summer show spectacular, we are seeking supplemental dancers and singers to submit video auditions through the end of the day this Memorial Day. We have also opened up auditions to high school age performers to round out our talented cast.

Rehearsals will be 2-3 nights per week for much of the summer. Questions about what to submit, or the show in general? Contact the director or submit audition videos via email at

LOCATION: BDACT Fine Arts Center; 117 West Maple Ave. in Beaver Dam

PERFORMANCE DATES: August 6 – 15 up to six performances

“There are so many unknowns about reopening our theatre. One thing is certain for many of us, and that is our need to get back on stage and perform. Our show will focus on getting back into the theatre, the uncertainty of the last year and a half, the losses and hardships we’ve faced, and optimism for the future, through well-known songs from movies, musicals, and the radio.” – Director Ryan Madala-Klug


Prepare up to 5 minutes of music, parts of two contrasting songs. Karaoke tracks will be ok.
“Jason Robert Brown, Stephen Sondheim, and some others offer incredibly beautiful songs that are insanely difficult to sight-read. As such, they are not great for auditions. Please keep that in mind when choosing your audition pieces. If you are unsure of your songs will be too difficult, you can email with your songs and we will answer as quickly as we can.”

We will accept online submissions sent to or texted to 920-698-6414.

Covid-19 Information

It’s hard to know what the situation in Wisconsin will be in August concerning Covid-19. Currently, BDACT is open at about 30% capacity providing 6 feet of distancing between parties. The Board of Directors is in contact with the state Department of Health and plans to follow their guidelines. It is the hope of the Board, however, that audience sizes will be able to increase and performers can entertain without masks by August.

The Board supports a Director’s preference for cast members to be vaccinated (Health and Religious Reasons are Exceptions). Performers auditioning must understand they are willingly participating in an activity involving singing and dancing which may have a higher risk of transmission for Covid-19.
