RCC Announces Fantasia 2013 Cast

by admin
Following one of the largest auditions in their storied history, the Fantasia 2013 cast ends up being the largest group ever!  There are exciting times at RCC, with the “Marching Tigers” being selected as the opening act in the upcoming Tournament of Roses Parade AND the winter drum line enjoying an influx of talent.  And the ‘buzz’ around Fantasia is right up there with the rest of the department of performing arts at the college, with a cast of 16 men and 22 women  – all dedicated entertainers boasting a wide variety of background experiences!

RCC enjoys amazing turnout for ‘audition days’ for elite winter groups!

What an amazing sight it was, as more than 150 total ‘prospective’ members showed up near the RCC Huntley Gym complex, all hoping to secure a spot in the 2013 edition of WGI-finalist FANTASIA or the WGI Champion RCC Winter Drum Line! Long lines at the check-in table were a tremendous sign of great things to come! The weekend featured an outstanding array of staff members, experts in indoor pageantry, all getting to focus on their ‘thing’ as potential performers were put through their paces.

As soon as all deposits are collected and contracts signed, AND ‘call backs’ for the front ensemble are completed, the cast list for each elite group will be posted. Check back soon to see who made it IN for Fantasia’s 23rd competitive season and for the WDL’s 12th, going for the gold in Dayton!
